Substantial settlement achieved for woman who suffered severe scaring and disfigurement following a breast lift procedure

Posted in News on Friday, July 27th, 2018

Cantillons settled a case for a young woman who underwent a mastopexy procedure (breast lift) to improve the shape of her breasts. Unfortunately, the woman was not afforded (or advised of) the appropriate aftercare and suffered serious complications including wound breakdown and infection. This resulted in irreversible damage to her breasts, including disfigurement, severe scaring, pain, and damage to her milk ducts. The Plaintiff was not in a position to breast feed her baby which was a further blow to her confidence. As a result of this, the Plaintiff suffered a psychological injury. The matter was settled through mediation for a significant sum.
