Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgery Malpractice Attorney
Call this Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgery Malpractice Lawyer if you’ve been the victim of a doctors’ negligence. Plastic or cosmetic surgery is often an elective procedure designed to improve the appearance of a person’s body. Plastic/cosmetic surgery may include the following types of procedures:
- Breast augmentations
- Breast reductions
- “tummy tucks”
- Procedures to fix scars/scarring
Nevertheless, cosmetic/plastic surgery can go badly and, when it does, it can leave the victim’s body looking worse than before the procedure. Worse, negligent plastic/cosmetic surgery can lead to more serious health issues. These may include:
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Skin discoloration
- Excessive bleeding/hemorrhaging

Plastic/cosmetic surgery malpractice can take many forms. Oftentimes, it is caused by the improper use of anesthesia – a drug used to control the patient’s level of consciousness during a procedure. Anesthesia is typically used to put the patient “under” during the procedure. However, improper use of anesthesia can cause all sorts of problems for the patient, including even death.
Additionally, some doctors other than plastic/cosmetic surgeons (obstetricians, optometrists, etc.) have begun performing plastic surgeries. This is dangerous because it is not their specialty, and disaster can result.
Finally, plastic/cosmetic surgery malpractice can result when surgeries are done on patients who are not good candidates for surgery (i.e., patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity). Many patients are not good candidates for plastic/cosmetic surgery, and, when a surgery is done anyway, disaster can result.Contact this Broward County Plastic Surgery Negligence Law Firm at 786-294-7711
If you are the victim of cosmetic/plastic surgery negligence, it is important to get your medical records as soon as possible. After incidents of medical malpractice, medical records may go missing or become altered. Once you have your medical records, you should share them with a qualified medical malpractice attorney. Your attorney can get them to an experienced expert (typically another doctor in the same field or specialty as the doctor who committed your malpractice).
In fact, in the State of Florida, it is required that you have an expert doctor sign an affidavit attesting that malpractice was committed in order to go forward on your case. This is one of the requirements of what is referred to as the medical malpractice “pre-suit screening process.”
Also, it is important to know that, in a medical malpractice case, the typical statute is two-years from the date of the malpractice. This means that, if you don’t file your lawsuit within two-years of the medical negligence that injured you, then you will be forever prevented from pursuing your case. It is therefore imperative that you act as quickly as possible.Get Advice from this South Florida Cosmetic Surgery Negligence Attorney/Lawyer
