Plastic Surgery Errors

Plastic Surgery Errors can prove Serious

Everyday hundreds of individuals go under the knife for various reasons. Although the term "plastic surgery" has developed the image of being a purely elective and non-essential operation this is far from the case. While many pursue strictly improvement in looks or enhancement of certain attributes the field of plastic surgery is often a critical service for those who have suffered from disfigurement, injuries, burns or birth defects. However the commonly held opinion that this is primarily a service for superficial needs or for the fulfillment of vanity has also bred the idea that the surgery is "light" or "inconsequential". Many consider going in for liposuction or a lap-band with not much more concern that a day trip to the spa. The truth is that these operations are very serious and they are actual surgery. Any follower of the news media can readily hear the horror stories of these surgeries gone wrong. Permanent disfigurement, scarring, nerve damage, paralysis and even fatalities can and do occur. Unfortunately for many such victims and sufferers the consequential feelings of shame or regret often lead them to hesitate in seeking legal help from a San Diego personal injury lawyer for pursuing compensation or a settlement.

Seeking Restitution for Plastic Surgery Errors

Building a claim against plastic surgery errors is similar to any medical malpractice lawsuit that the team at the Pacific Attorney Group. It requires intensive investigation, a thorough understanding of not only the legalities but of the fundamentals of accepted medical practices and standards as well.

Most plastic surgery operations involve the use of an anesthetic and many of them will employ an anesthesiologist to administer a full, general sedation. This can be very demanding upon the human body and can often lead to post-surgical trauma or psychological distress. In some unfortunate cases there can be brain damage, nervous tissue damage, loss of feeling, paralysis and even death.  Other elective services, such as breast augmentation, have in the past been the source of class action suits stemming from full body systemic toxicity. The leakage of chemicals over time from the implants created all manner of illnesses and medical conditions.

A plastic surgery can be essential for health and self-esteem. When such operations go wrong and doctor error or negligence is present then you can suffer greatly. If you or a loved one has suffered due to a procedure then it is important that you contact a San Diego Plastic Surgery Errors Attorney for a consultation.
