Examples of Plastic Surgery Malpractice

Plastic surgery malpractice is a type of medical malpractice and can include medical errors such as:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Not taking a full patient history
  • Ignoring a patient's informed consent and performing procedures the patient did not authorize
  • Performing surgery in a non-sanitary environment
  • Damaging surrounding tissue, ligaments, nerves or muscles
  • Using a nurse anesthetist instead of an anesthesiologist
  • Performing complex procedures in private offices that are unequipped to deal with potential complications

There is also a growing problem of unlicensed surgeons performing plastic surgery and injuring patients. These people take one or two courses on plastic surgery and then market themselves as capable, experienced surgeons. But they do not have the experience and knowledge to perform the operation safely and to deal with problems that may arise during the procedure.

Plastic surgery malpractice puts patients at risk of death and a variety of serious injuries such as:

  • Scarring
  • Paralysis
  • Infection
  • Drooping or caving at the surgical site
  • Disfigurement
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Pneumonia
  • Skin discoloration or other irregularities

Proving Cosmetic Surgery Malpractice

Your attorney must prove five things to prevail in a plastic surgery malpractice case:

  1. A healthcare professional had a duty to operate within accepted standards of care in the medical community
  2. The healthcare professional did not act within accepted standards of care, either through negligence or a failure to act
  3. The patient sustained an injury
  4. The injury was caused by the medical professional's negligence
  5. The patient experienced severe damages as a result of the injury

These are complex, lengthy cases that require an experienced legal team if you want to have a good chance at getting compensation.

The Savannah cosmetic surgery malpractice lawyers at The Nye Law Group have the skill and the resources to thoroughly investigate your claim and find out exactly what happened. Our caring attorneys know how to review complex medical documentation and which experts to consult about the extent of your injuries. With years of experience, we are prepared for counter arguments brought by the defense.

Our Savannah cosmetic surgery malpractice lawyers are committed to holding negligent healthcare professionals accountable for the injuries they have caused.

Compensation from a Cosmetic Surgery Lawsuit

If our medical malpractice attorneys are successful, you could win economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages. Economic damages include payment for current and future medical expenses related to your injury. You may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages if your injury prevented you from returning to work.

Non-economic compensation is for the pain and suffering caused by the injury. It could also include wrongful death compensation if a loved one died as a result of surgical malpractice. Surviving family members could obtain compensation for lost medical benefits, loss of a pension, loss of an inheritance, lost wages and funeral costs.

If the plastic surgeon's actions were particularly malicious, you may be entitled to punitive damages that are meant as a form of punishment to prevent the liable party, and others, from engaging in a similar way.
