With the popularity of elective, cosmetic plastic surgery on the rise, so is the number of plastic surgery medical malpractice cases. A surgery designed to make you more beautiful can end with the opposite result. Even the surgeries considered “non-invasive” can end badly. Despite plastic surgery being a voluntary procedure, you still have the right to have a capable and qualified doctor.
Plastic surgery, also known as cosmetic surgery, covers a wide range of procedures from breast augmentation to liposuction and basically is any procedure to improve one’s appearance. Cosmetic surgery also includes reconstructive surgery. A plastic surgery malpractice case often results in serious, long-term medical issues, as well as aesthetically undesirable results.
Complications of cosmetic surgery malpractice include:
Breast augmentation complications:
Incorrect with distortion and firmness
Breast Reduction complications:
Loss of nipple or breast skin
Face lift and blepharoplasty complications:
Inability to close eyes
Excessive skin removal
Rhinoseptoplasty and Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) complications:
Post-surgical infection that was undiagnosed
Skin resurfacing complications
Blisters or burns that result in scars
Permanent skin discoloration
It’s also important to note that many of these conditions will require further surgery to repair the damage. The complications may also not be repairable and the person may have to live with the conditions for a lifetime. The complications of a bad cosmetic surgery can also result in time off work, chronic pain and psychological difficulties.
