Plastic Surgery Medical Malpractice

Plastic surgery is a form of elective surgery more prevalent in our society. Thanks to her, not only those patients who wish to see improved some aspect of your image you can see their wishes fulfilled. Also those who suffered tragic events like excisions of breast or scars, and disfigurements terrible accidents can recover his smile and, in many cases, the will to live. Unfortunately, sometimes cosmetic procedures do not go as desired, so that the patient is substantially dissatisfied with their appearance after surgery. Very often, this type of undesired outcomes can be solved, while at other times it is not possible, resulting in permanent trauma in the patient’s life. The question that arises here is, and to what extent this type of events could question of negligence by the surgeon who performed the procedure? The attribution of blame in the case of undesired outcomes in surgery is a mistake to consider always and in any case undesirable results are attributable to the intervention own surgeon. Many times it happens that, despite an intervention discouraged because its result may not be optimal, it is impossible to persuade the patient about it. This is very common when a person is subjected to a very large number of interventions, there is growing smaller amount of tissue to be able to practice.

At other times, however, this has more to do with a lack of time to practice the intervention. In these circumstances, the easiest thing would be to identify objectively unsatisfactory aspects and to present the surgeon, who will surely make a new restorative intervention in which they can possibly be solved without additional cost to the patient. However, it could happen that would have caused irreparable damage to it. For example, if an intervention had been damaged facial nerves resulting in paralysis (lack of mobility) and insensitivity face. It is in such cases when surgical question of negligence can be compensated. The consequences of defective intervention, failure to observe the plastic surgeon protocols established by medical science for this type of operation can be tremendous, both physical (paralysis, deformities or scarring) and psychological level. From this it follows that compensation, so that you can give the patient a palliative against the trauma of not seeing their wishes fulfilled after the operation she decided to undergo.
