St. Louis Plastic Surgery Errors

Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Cosmetic Surgery Malpractice & Injuries

Plastic surgery, which includes reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery, has become a very common medical procedure in the United States. It has a wide variety of applications, from cosmetic improvements in a person to bodily reconstruction for people who have sustained heavy scarring from dog bites, car accidents, birth injuries or other similarly serious accidents. Unfortunately, errors can be made during plastic surgery procedures. Negligent, unqualified, or untrained doctors can cause errors that result in tragic consequences for the victim.

Some common complications brought about by plastic surgery error include:

  • Breast augmentation and reduction: Nerve damage, encapsulation, infection, asymmetry, scarring, and blood loss
  • Anesthesia: Brain damage, blood clots, airway obstruction, and heart attack
  • Rhinoplasty: Breathing difficulties, and asymmetry
  • Liposuction: Numbness, disfigurement, organ damage, and internal bleeding
  • Facelift: Dry eyes, nerve damage, inability to properly close eye, and scarring
