Can I Sue for Cosmetic Surgery Errors?

Representing Injured Victims for More Than 40 Years

What to Do When Plastic Surgery Goes Wrong

Though cosmetic surgery tends to be less risky and life-threatening than other kinds of surgery, it can still lead to serious complications and injuries if the overseeing physician behaves irresponsibly. You cannot bring a lawsuit against your physician just because you are unhappy with the results of a cosmetic procedure, but you may be able to seek damages if your physician was careless and harmed you as a result.

Legitimate examples of medical malpractice and negligence in cosmetic surgery include:

  • Impersonating a plastic surgeon
  • Having another medical staff member who is not a plastic surgeon perform a cosmetic surgical procedure
  • Providing cosmetic surgery or similar procedures without the necessary medical equipment to address complications that may arise
  • Exposing patients to known allergens
  • Neglecting to compile all the necessary information about a patient including medical conditions, allergies, etc.
  • Overreaching and doing more than that to which a patient has knowingly consented
  • Performing plastic surgery on the wrong body part

Can I Sue a Plastic Surgeon?

In order to have a viable medical malpractice case against a plastic surgeon, the following must be true:

  • You had a legitimate doctor-patient relationship with them.
  • Your plastic surgeon negligently violated normal standards of acceptable medical care at some point during the process.
  • You were directly harmed as a result of this violation.
  • The procedure or instance of medical malpractice occurred less than 2 years ago.
