Plastic Surgery Error

Home > Surgical Mistakes > Surgery Error

Millions of people choose to improve their appearance through plastic surgery procedures every year. Unfortunately, plastic surgery procedures often produce the opposite effect, and can sometimes even cause long-term health issues. The recent rise in the popularity of elective plastic surgery has led to a corresponding rise in new, inexperienced plastic surgeons. As a result, plastic surgery malpractice is also on the rise. A plastic surgeon's inexperience or negligence can leave its victim scarred, or disfigured for life.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury due to a preventable plastic surgery error, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your losses. Please contact us today to speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can explain your legal rights.

Plastic Surgery Errors: Consequences

While all plastic surgeries carry an inherent risk, plastic surgery errors most commonly occur during facelifts, breast surgeries, eyelid surgeries, and nose surgeries. Botched plastic surgery jobs can cause long-term health problems, or even permanent disfigurement. In fact, many plastic surgery errors require numerous additional surgeries to correct, resulting in enormous costs – both emotional and financial.

Plastic surgery errors commonly result in the following:

  • Infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Excessive scarring
  • Excessive removal of skin
  • Disfigurement
  • Severe asymmetry
  • Organ penetration
  • Internal bleeding
  • Death

Plastic Surgery Errors: Causes

Because there are a lot of new surgeons entering the plastic surgery field, inexperience is frequently a contributing factor to many plastic surgery errors. Sometimes, injuries are a result of a surgeon or other medical professional's recklessness or negligence – regardless of intent. Some injuries may occur as a result of anesthesia or other operating room errors.
