Each year, countless individuals undergo cosmetic surgery procedures, whether elective or not, many of which are performed by medical professionals. All medical professionals are trained and expected to keep their patients safe, even when performing elective cosmetic surgery. They are also expected to identify any potential problems that may have occurred either during or after such a procedure. As with any medical procedure, there exists a risk that the practitioner has committed serious malpractice.
If a plastic or cosmetic surgeon or other health care professional commits an error it can result in serious issues for the patient which may even extend to his or her loved ones. There are numerous dangers that can result in serious physical and emotional injuries. Often the patients are not properly informed as to these risks associated with cosmetic surgery. These types of errors can even result in wrongful death. Even if the risks are made known it is still the responsibility of the medical professional to take care of their patients to avoid issues or injuries.
