Get the Compensation You Deserve

Plastic Surgery Malpractice Attorneys

There are many reasons a person may decide to undergo plastic surgery. Trauma or disease that causes disfigurement can be mitigated by plastic or reconstruction surgery. Many people can improve their self-confidence by altering their appearance. While cosmetic surgery is usually elective and aesthetic results are not guaranteed, plastic surgeons still owe a duty to the care of their patients. 

Today, cosmetic surgeons have access to advanced equipment that gives them greater accuracy and usability and allows them to offer a broader spectrum of medical services to patients.

Unfortunately, even with all of the advancements made in cosmetic surgery, malpractice can and does happen, frequently leaving victims in pain and burdened with expensive medical bills.

If you or a loved one had plastic surgery and surgical errors caused injuries or death, contact our plastic surgery malpractice trial attorneys at McDonald & Cody and get the compensation you deserve.

Examples of Medical Malpractice in Plastic Surgery

Every surgery carries with it certain risks. And the law has long recognized that a tragedy can occur without a medical professional committing malpractice.

But medical professionals are expected to adhere to accepted standards of care, whether they’re performing a life-saving operation or cosmetic surgery. Distinguishing between a tragic outcome and actionable medical malpractice requires a lawyer with ample experience in the field, and that’s what we bring to the table.

In the case of plastic surgery malpractice, common issues include:

  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Insufficiently sterile conditions leading to infections
  • Common surgical errors, including cutting or severing surrounding tissue, ligaments, nerves and muscles
  • Failure to inform patients of a procedure’s risks
