COSMETIC PLASTIC SURGERY LAWYERS
Are You a Victim of Cosmetic Surgery Malpractice?
You may be entitled to significant compensation.
Our national network of surgery malpractice lawyers understands that patients who have undergone surgical procedures, particularly cosmetic surgeries, expect a specific outcome. Therefore, a mishap with surgery does not necessarily mean the patient has a right to sue. Still, if a surgeon is negligent and violates their responsibility of care towards a patient, they can be held responsible for any harm caused by the outcome. Our attorneys have decades of experience and practice handling medical negligence cases, including cases against orthopedic and cosmetic surgeons. They have witnessed the devastating impact that botched plastic surgery can have on the patient and are committed to holding negligent healthcare providers accountable for their actions.
If you or someone you love has had plastic or cosmetic surgery and suffered injury or disfigurement, you may have a legitimate claim.

What is cosmetic surgical malpractice? Cosmosurgery is performed for many reasons, from voluntarily changing one’s appearance, breast augmentation, elective liposuction, and belly tucks, to corrective procedures for correcting disfigurement or scarring.
While cosmetic surgery does not promise perfection, most patients expect their doctors to do their best in performing the procedure. A cosmetic surgeon is accountable for acting responsibly and acting as another surgeon would, just like any other healthcare professional. In cases where the surgeon’s procedure does not conform to minimum standards by the medical community and the surgery is botched, the physician can be held liable for damages.
A growing trend in plastic surgery is non-plastic surgeons performing cosmetic procedures. Some doctors can complete cosmetic surgery courses and market themselves as practicing plastic surgeons.
As with any surgery, cosmetic surgery has its intricacies and complications. An untrained, unqualified practitioner might be unable to make the correct judgment calls should complications occur. Cosmetic procedures may cause potentially fatal complications, and the inability to perform these procedures competently and meet the accepted standards of care may result in a patient with significant risks. Patients injured by a cosmetic surgeon’s malpractice can be entitled to monetary, non-monetary, and, in some cases, punitive damages.

Medical expenses: A patient can receive compensation for any ongoing medical fees and any medical costs related to an injury that occurs in the future.
Lost Wages: If the injured person is so hurt that they cannot return to work, a negligent party can be held responsible for the future wages that the injured person would earn. Pain and Suffering: A patient suffering from psychological distress can be financially compensated to lessen the trauma caused by malpractice.
Unlawful Death: In cases where a physician’s malpractice causes the death of a patient, a family may be entitled to compensation.
The damages available through the suit can include the loss of health benefits, the loss of retirement benefits, the loss of inheritance, lost wages, lost companionship, and the costs of a funeral. Additionally, in cases where a healthcare provider’s actions or omissions were especially harmful, punitive damages can be awarded to penalize the defendant and discourage others from engaging in similar conduct.
