Types of Plastic Surgery Injuries

Plastic surgery involves a variety of procedures designed to help people have toned, younger-looking bodies. However, it not only focuses on aesthetic appeal, but it also focuses on practical function. Patients who have birth defects, deformities, injuries, scars, or burns can benefit from a variety of plastic and cosmetic surgery options. Common plastic surgery procedures include scar revision surgery, burn repair surgery, breast reconstruction, lower extremity reconstruction, congenital defect repair (including cleft palate), and hand surgery.

With these procedures comes the risk of complications. In fact, some procedures can even result in fatal injuries to patients. Doctors owe a duty of care to provide accurate, safe, and effective medical care and treatment. This standard still applies to cosmetic and plastic surgery.

Injuries resulting from plastic surgery may include:

  • Infections
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Organ damage
  • Blood loss

Hematomas, or large pockets of blood that look like bruises, as well as seromas (swollen and painful pools of blood under the skin), can also occur. In addition, anesthesia complications (including strokes, heart attacks, and lung infections) can threaten the life of the patient if not handled with immediate and proper action. While plastic surgery offers a way to get a good looking body, the risks must also be taken into consideration.

In order to pursue a claim for a plastic surgery injury, you must prove that:

  • The doctor owed a duty of care to you
  • The doctor breached that duty of care
  • The breached duty of care resulted in your injuries

If your doctor acted carelessly and caused an injury, or did not provide the treatment necessary when you suffered complications, he or she must be held responsible. Our firm can aggressively represent your case in court as you pursue compensation. Depending on the situation, you may be able to get a settlement for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and noneconomic damages.
