Plastic Surgery Malpractice

Plastic Surgery Should Never Result in Injury

There are a couple of types of plastic surgery: cosmetic and reconstructive. Cosmetic is purely for aesthetic purposes while reconstructive aims to repair burns, defects and other physical damages. In either type, though, it is possible to be injured by a surgeon's errors during the process.

Damages from plastic surgery may be permanent and involve scars, aesthetic damages, nerve damage and even catastrophic injuries. No one should have to suffer such consequences because of a surgeon's mistakes. An attorney specialized in this area can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

We Defend Victims in any Type of Procedure

Like other medical malpractice cases, you will need to prove that the surgeon acted negligently, or below the standard of care he or she should have provided, and that the negligent actions are the cause of your injuries.

Sometimes these cases are challenging because plastic surgery is elective, meaning you made the choice to undergo it. Judges may view it differently from a procedure that is meant to fix a life-threatening condition. However, you still have every right to compensation if you were significantly harmed. At Miller & James, LLP, our attorneys have the experience to fight for a successful outcome for you.

We have represented clients in many types of plastic surgery malpractice cases, including:

  • Phalloplasty (penial enlargement)
  • Facial surgeries
  • Breast augmentation
  • Liposuction

We understand how traumatic surgical injuries can be, especially when you were seeking to repair damages or improve your appearance. We will help you seek justice for the wrong done to you.
