Tens of thousands of Americans undergo some form of plastic or cosmetic surgery every year. Some of these procedures are cosmetic, while others are vital for the patient's health and function after a traumatic injury. Unfortunately, as more and more procedures are performed, there is an increased risk of serious plastic and cosmetic surgery malpractice.

Indicators of plastic or cosmetic surgery malpractice include, but are not limited to:

  • Use of less effective anesthesia

Medical professionals who perform plastic or cosmetic surgery are trained and expected to keep their patients safe. They are also expected to identify any potential problems that may have occurred.
