Investigating the Incident
Pursuing compensation can be complex, especially in cases of cosmetic procedures. An experienced lawyer can assess the situation, determine liability, and guide you through the legal process. They’ll gather evidence, review medical records, and consult experts to establish the standard of care that should have been upheld by the medical professionals involved.
Cosmetic procedure injury lawyers are well-versed in the challenges of medical malpractice cases. They’ll work tirelessly to prove that negligence or malpractice led to your injuries. This might involve demonstrating that the surgeon or medical team deviated from the standard of care, failed to adequately inform you of risks, or made critical errors during the procedure.
In cases where a cosmetic procedure has gone wrong, victims may be entitled to various types of damages.
These can include:
- Past and future medical expenses for corrective procedures
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages due to time off work
What Types of Cosmetic Procedures Can Result in Severe Injuries?
Cosmetic procedures have become increasingly popular, offering people the chance to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence. However, these procedures are not without risks, and some can lead to serious injuries or even death.
Examples of cosmetic procedures that can result in severe harm include:
Surgical cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction, tummy tucks, facelifts, and breast augmentations, involve incisions and manipulation of tissues. Infections, scarring, hematoma, and nerve damage are potential risks. Inadequate anesthesia administration or reactions to anesthesia can also lead to life-threatening complications.
Injectable Fillers and Botox
While injectable fillers and Botox are minimally invasive, they can still cause serious issues. If not administered correctly, they might lead to infections, allergic reactions, nerve damage, or even disfigurement.
Laser treatments are used for various purposes, such as hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and tattoo removal. Improper use can result in burns, scars, and changes in pigmentation.
Breast augmentation surgeries carry risks of infection, implant rupture, and improper healing. There have been cases of rare but serious complications like Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma.
Dermal fillers, while effective in restoring volume to the face, can lead to allergic reactions, infections, and lumps if not administered correctly.
Liposuction, although a common procedure for fat removal, can result in complications like blood clots, organ perforation, and uneven contours.
Rhinoplasty surgeries carry risks of breathing difficulties, infection, scarring, and dissatisfaction with the cosmetic outcome.
Procedures like Brazilian Butt Lift can lead to serious complications if fat injections are placed incorrectly, causing embolisms or infections.
Eyelid surgery aims to correct drooping eyelids, but if not performed carefully, it can lead to vision problems, dry eyes, or an unnatural appearance.
Thread lifts involve inserting threads under the skin to lift sagging areas. Complications can include infection, thread migration, and puckering of the skin.
