The patient underwent breast augmentation surgery. Contrary to her wishes she was given large implants which were inserted sub muscularly leaving her with great pain and oversized and deformed breasts. She required 3 revision operations. The pain and psychological problems she suffered caused her work as a self employed slimming consultant to suffer.
Liability was denied and the claim proceeded through discovery, exchange of witness statements and liability reports. Judgement was obtained against the surgeon and an interim payment ordered to allow the Claimant to undergo further reconstructive surgery. The claim settled for a substantial payment to the Claimant shortly before an assessment of damages hearing.
