Plastic Surgery Errors

Cosmetic surgery – a kind of plastic surgery undertaken purely for aesthetic reasons – is more popular now than ever before. Men and women can now undergo surgery to lose weight, smooth wrinkled skin, and fix nearly any other supposed flaws in their appearances. Proponents say these procedures boost self-confidence, potentially leading to many benefits in a person’s career and personal life.

However, when cosmetic surgery is negligently performed, a patient can leave the hospital with far more problems than he or she had going in. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a careless plastic surgeon, you could have grounds for a legal claim.

EXAMPLES OF PLASTIC SURGERY MALPRACTICE

In a Charleston plastic surgery malpractice claim, the judge or jury will decide whether the defendant acted according to the professional standards of his or her field. In other words, the question that needs to be answered is “Would any other well-trained and reasonable surgeon make the same choices the defendant did?” Some examples that may be considered malpractice include:

  • Failing to provide accurate information before the surgery. This can include making false claims about the surgery’s outcome, failing to inform the patient about the surgery’s risks, and so on.
  • Operating on a patient who did not qualify. Some people have medical conditions that make them poor candidates for elective surgery. Others have mental or emotional problems that leave them unable to make that choice. If a surgeon knows about a problem like these, he or she should not agree to operate.
  • Errors during the surgery. Misuse of surgical tools or other mistakes can cause disfigurement, life-threatening surgical complications, and other problems for the patient.

Poor post-operative care. A patient who is not well supervised during recovery is at risk for infection, dehydration, and other dangerous conditions.

If you or a loved one has suffered problems like these due to a plastic surgeon’s errors, you could be eligible for compensation for medical bills and other expenses.
