Cosmetic surgery is a procedure performed for the purpose of altering your appearance. The most popular procedures include liposuction, breast augmentation, and eyelid surgery. The most common ones are non-surgical such as Botox injections, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion.
Over the years, there has been an increase in under-qualified medical doctors who perform these procedures. Medical malpractice can happen in any procedure or during the follow-up care after the procedure.
Cosmetic surgery is a complex medical procedure that can carry risk of complications, especially if the surgeon is not properly trained. Medical mistakes during cosmetic surgery can result in disfigurement, permanent physical injury, or even death.
If you are a victim of a cosmetic surgery mistake, you have the right to seek compensation for the harm you have suffered. To learn more about your rights, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has been successful in handling cosmetic surgery malpractice cases.
