Penis Enlargement Surgery Compensation Claims
Penis enlargement surgery has been increasing in popularity in recent years, but the procedure still carries significant risks, including the potential for pain, scarring, disfigurement and erectile dysfunction. If you have experienced any negative side-effects following penis enlargement surgery, you may be entitled to compensation.
There are several reasons for wanting a larger penis, one of which is concern with size and low self-esteem. A study in 2015 revealed that on average, professionally measured, the penis is 5.1 inches (13 cm), when erect.
Also sometimes called a penoplasty or phalloplasty, penis enhancement surgery is generally carried out by private clinics. Penis fillers are designed to increase the size of the penis. The penis filler is a liquid, usually hyaluronic acid, which is injected into the skin of the shaft of the penis. Hyaluronic acid is commonly used to address wrinkles in faces. If you need further surgery to correct any issues, you may need to pay for this yourself at another private clinic. This, along with issues such as lost income due to needing to take time off work, can quickly cause the cost of negligent penis enlargement surgery to stack up.
Claiming compensation is therefore often the only way to get the help you need, as well as mitigating any secondary costs. On top of this, you may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced, as well as the impact on your lifestyle, such as not being able to enjoy sexual intercourse.

How we handle penis enlargement negligence claims
When dealing with the physical and emotional fallout of botched penis enlargement surgery, the last thing you need is to go through a long, stressful claims process filled with uncertainty. Fortunately, we are able to resolve most claims with a voluntary settlement, saving you from the time and stress of court action.
Our skills in negotiation and alternative dispute resolution mean we can frequently secure compensation out-of-court by agreement with the clinic, surgeon or hospital responsible for your surgery. This avoids the need for you to attend a court hearing while still allowing you to get a fair settlement for you claim.
However, our team is also experienced in pursuing clinical negligence claims through the courts. So where court action is required to achieve the right result, we can offer the expert representation you deserve every step of the way, giving you the best chance of securing a positive outcome.
Our no win no fee penis enlargement claims service
We realise how expensive penis enlargement surgery may be and that you may not have the funds to pay up for legal representation to pursue compensation. By offering a no win, no fee claims service, we allow you to access our expertise now and only contribute to our fees if we secure compensation for you.
More properly called a ‘conditional fee agreement’, this type of funding agreement means there is usually no financial risk to you in starting a claim. Our fees will be based on a percentage of some of the compensation we win for you, so you will always keep the majority of your compensation.
We aim to be completely transparent about the cost of a penis enlargement claim, so will give a clear breakdown of how our fees are calculated and all associate costs and expenses at the outset.
How much compensation can you claim for negligent penis enlargement surgery?
How much a penis enlargement surgery claim is worth will depend on various factors, including:
- The damage to your health
- The emotional impact, including pain and suffering
- The effect on your life e.g. not being able to have sexual intercourse, reduced physical and social activity
- The financial consequences e.g. paying for corrective surgery, lost income due to needing to take time off work
There are two types of damages you can normally claim for penis enlargement compensation claims:
Financial Losses and Expenses – For specific financial losses. This includes things such as paying for private treatment and care, as well as lost income due to having to take time off work and not able to return to work, or perhaps not able to command the same level of income enjoyed before the penis enlargement clinical negligence.
General Compensation – For non-financial losses, such as pain, suffering and lifestyle changes.
Our team can assess your claim and provide a realistic estimate of how much compensation you may be able to secure. You will then be able to make an informed decision about the merits of moving forward with your claim.
Time limits for penis enlargement surgery negligence claims
If you need to claim compensation for the negative side-effects of penis enlargement surgery, you will normally need to do so within 3 years. This can be counted from when you had the procedure or when you first became aware of any problems connected to the surgery.
There can be different time limits under some circumstances, however, so it is always worth speaking to one of our expert cosmetic surgery lawyers no matter how much time has passed.
