Handling Cosmetic Surgery Malpractice Claims
Throughout New York
Every year, there are more than 1.5 million cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the United States. Every operation comes with risks, and plastic surgery malpractice can occur during even the most routine procedures.
Whether the cosmetic surgery is medically necessary or is a personal choice, patients expect the end result to be one of improvement. Some common cosmetic surgery procedures that put the patient at risk include:
- Breast Augmentation
- Rhytidectomy and Blepharoplasty
- High-Volume Liposuction and Suction-Assisted Lipectomy
- Skin Resurfacing
Plastic Surgeons’ Responsibilities
Plastic surgeons have a number of legal obligations that protect patients from botched plastic surgery and unqualified practitioners. By rendering care to a patient, a plastic surgeon implies that they possess the education, training, and skills necessary to practice plastic surgery safely.
Surgeons have a legal obligation to disclose all possible risks to their patients prior to surgery. Plastic surgeons are required to offer this important information whether or not their patients request it. Doing so can also protect surgeons from plastic surgery malpractice liability.
