If you have been seriously injured because of a plastic surgery mistake, you may be eligible to file a Kentucky medical malpractice claim against the surgeon or any other party that caused your injuries.
Reducing the Risks of a Plastic Surgery Mistake
Although most patients are satisfied with the results of their plastic surgery, many are not aware of the potential risks involved. Injuries from plastic surgery can leave a person scarred or permanently disfigured. Plastic surgery mistakes may also result in the need for further surgeries.
Some ways to reduce the risk of a plastic surgery mistake include:
- Learn about the surgery's possible side effects
- Research the surgeon's qualifications (completion of an accredited plastic surgery program, American Board of Plastic Surgery certified)
- Request a portfolio of your surgeon's work (with before and after photos)
- Discuss possible complications with your surgeon
Unfortunately, plastic surgery errors are more common than some might think. If you have been injured because of a surgeon's wrongdoing or negligence, you should contact an experienced Kentucky medical malpractice lawyer.
