As with any cosmetic treatment, there is a risk of a cosmetic procedure going wrong even when it is carried out correctly and with care. One of the main reasons people obtain cosmetic procedures is to combat the signs of aging by reducing the effects of fine lines and wrinkles, and tightening the skin.
There are various types of cosmetic procedures, some of which include:
- chin implants
- cheek implants
- lip implants
- fat injections
- hair transplants
- breast lift, enhancement or reduction
- eyelid surgery
- tummy tucks
As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved. If you receive negligent care or treatment, you may end up with unwanted results such as bruising, deformation, scarring, nerve damage, and poor superficial results. In turn, you may be left with painful injuries, both physical and psychological.
Lawsuits for medical malpractice against cosmetic surgeons are unique and often challenging to pursue. It is a relatively small speciality within the field of medicine and it can be difficult to prove damages, especially if poor results are mostly of a subjective nature. Thus, if you undergo a cosmetic procedure and begin experiencing any pain or side-effects as a result, please remember to document your injuries and symptoms and take photographs of your injuries.
