When Plastic Surgery Turns Sour

By Ellsworth Law Group  Jul. 25, 2011 10:42a

Elective cosmetic or plastic surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years - it is no longer confined to just wealthy celebrities. Plastic surgery is now common for those wanting to lose weight, get rid of wrinkles, reduce sagging, enlarge or minimize breast size and a host of other procedures to improve a person's looks. Liposuction and tummy tucks are now a household word in many areas of our country. Unfortunately, however, with the increase procedures that are now available, plastic surgery errors have also increased resulting in medical malpractice lawsuits. When things go wrong and errors are made, what people had hoped would be a positive image enhancing result, turns into a costly medical nightmare.

 A Few of the Most Common Mistakes

Some of the more common medical errors from elective plastic surgery are as follows:

  • Excessive or internal bleeding;
  • Infection;
  • Mistakes in administration of anesthesia;
  • Blood clots;
  • Nerve damage;
  • Disfigurement or disproportion; and
  • Excessive scarring 

Studies have shown that over 100,000 people die each year from medical errors and many of these have resulted in personal injury claims. Negligence on the part of doctors or other medical personnel can cause serious life-long injury and their victims deserve to be compensated.
