Are You Dealing with the Aftereffects of a Cosmetic Surgery Mistake?

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. Appearance is important, and if you trust a plastic surgeon to help you only to have them fail to deliver, you may feel extremely hurt and betrayed. If a negligent, unqualified, or untrained doctor has failed to provide the care they promised, we want to help you explore your legal options.

Complications of Plastic Surgery Errors

Though people think of plastic surgery as a purely cosmetic procedure, patients may sustain serious injuries from mistakes. The name isn’t a distortion of a practitioner’s job: There is surgery involved and, like all other medical procedures, patients must be notified of potential side effects. They also may suffer when doctors make a mistake.

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

Our team can help you pursue compensation if you sustained injuries while under the care of a negligent cosmetic surgeon. We will aggressively fight those responsible for your injuries with the goal of recovering compensation to pay for your medical costs and any other related expenses.

Damages in Plastic Surgery Error Cases

Medical malpractice law allows patients to recover both economic and non-economic damages if they’ve been harmed by a negligent doctor. This allows them both to cover unexpected expenses related to a procedure and to adjust their lifestyle where major changes are required.

Economic damages could cover expenses including:

  • Lost wages from missed work
  • The cost of additional consultations to understand/make a plan to correct the issue
  • The cost of corrective procedures
  • Projected costs for future related medical care

When you have a chance for compensation, it’s important to understand all the factors that could lead to future costs. Our team has access to a number of medical professionals who can both help you calculate realistic numbers and testify on your behalf if a case is taken to court.

You also have the right to non-economic damages as the victim of a plastic surgery error, and you may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Pain & suffering
  • Scarring & disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

The quality of a person’s life can be greatly reduced if their appearance is altered, not to mention the difficulty physical symptoms can cause. You may be able to ask for maximum non-economic damages to compensate you for the fact that your life will not be the same.
