One of our clients (now aged 39) was unhappy with private treatment which she received from a plastic surgeon in London. Briefly, she had agreed to undergo a bilateral breast reduction operation during August 2010. She was told that both her breasts would be lifted and reduced in size.
Following this procedure, there was no real evidence that she had, in fact, had a breast reduction. The photographs available made it fairly clear that there was very little difference in their size. Our independent expert was very critical of her plastic surgeon who seemed to be in denial about his failure to carry out the reduction. A letter of claim was sent to him and this was passed to his Medical Defence Union who, in turn, appointed solicitors.
Eventually, we were able to agree a settlement whereby our client received damages which included a sum of money to enable the correct breast reduction surgery to be performed.
S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £25,000 for this client in 2013
