San Diego Plastic Surgery Error Attorneys

Although the terms cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery are often used interchangeably, plastic surgery is a broader term that encompasses both cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery.  For a surgery to be considered cosmetic surgery, the surgery must be for the enhancement of one’s appearance.  The goal of reconstructive surgery, on the other hand, is to correct a defect or improve the functionality of a body part.  Plastic surgery is almost always elective and the objective is typically to help a patient seek to improve their looks and confidence.

For whatever reason a person may seek plastic surgery, he or she should expect a standard level of care before, during and after the procedure.  While every surgical procedure has a certain amount of risk associated with it, that does not mean that medical professionals do not have a responsibility to meet the appropriate standard of care.  When a medical professional is negligent in performing plastic surgery, oftentimes the results can be disastrous.  Excessive scarring, nerve damage, surgical error, aesthetic damage, emotional trauma and even death are just some of the consequences that can arise when a medical professional falls below the standard of care when performing plastic surgery.
