In 2007, inquiries for medical malpractice in some firms were up 50% and half of the increase was from cosmetic-surgery. The most frequent calls were from patients who have had breast implants. The chief complaints are that the breasts are ill-placed or lopsided and that there was a loss of feeling around the breasts. People need to research the risks of these procedures. Some are not worth it. There have also been an increase in calls about Tummy tucks as well.
There have been many complaints that what they expected the surgery to yield didn’t come to fruition. The pictures of these injuries are gruesome. In some instances there is no malpractice. There have been cases where the doctor didn’t do anything wrong and the injury that resulted from the surgery was a ” known risk”. The patient signed a release without fully understanding what they were signing and is now living disfigured and in pain. Read the disclaimer and talk to your doctor about the risk of surgery.
