What Are Common Plastic Surgery Errors?
Plastic surgery is a specific type of procedure that involves the alteration or restoration of a body part. It can be either reconstructive or cosmetic in nature. A plastic surgery error refers to a mistake made before, during or after this type of surgery. It is a form of medical malpractice if a reasonable and prudent surgeon or health care provider would have done something differently to prevent the victim’s adverse surgical outcome.
Examples of plastic surgery errors that may constitute medical malpractice are:
- Failure to take into account a patient’s complete medical history
- Preoperative mistakes, such as a lack of informed consent
- Lack of surgical training or experience
- Poor communication between the surgical team
- Mistakes made during the surgery
- Poor postoperative care
There is no room for even a minor mistake during an operation. Although not all adverse health outcomes are preventable, those caused by professional negligence are. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your plastic surgery error if you suspect that one or more of your health care providers committed medical malpractice in connection to your negative surgical outcome.
Can I File a Medical Malpractice Claim for Botched Plastic Surgery?
Just because plastic surgery is an elective or voluntary surgery and not medically necessary does not mean you have no rights as a patient. You have the same rights as other patients to receive the appropriate standard of medical care from your doctor or surgeon. If a practitioner fell short of the standards of care and this resulted in failed plastic surgery, you have the right to file a medical malpractice claim in Boston to pursue compensation.
You may be able to file a medical malpractice claim in Boston for many adverse health outcomes after a botched plastic surgery, including scarring, disfigurement, allergic reactions, excessive bleeding, infections, tissue or nerve damage, skin discoloration, and paralysis. A successful Boston medical malpractice claim could result in financial compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional trauma, lost quality or enjoyment of life, medical expenses, and more.
