Cosmetic Surgery Mistakes
Cosmetic or plastic surgery has become increasingly popular across the United States over the past decade as millions of Americans hope to improve their appearance. There were almost 10 million cosmetic procedures – surgical or non-surgical – performed across the United States in 2010. While patients often seek cosmetic surgery in hopes of improving their looks, in cases involving surgical mistakes, they may instead suffer adverse health effects or detrimental consequences for their appearance.
If you have been harmed due to the negligence of a cosmetic surgeon during the performance of a procedure, or in some other aspect of treatment, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate. You might be able to obtain financial compensation for medical bills and other damages.

Common Cosmetic Surgery Consequences
The number of cosmetic surgeries has increased by nine percent over the past year in the United States. Unfortunately, many patients do not fully grasp the potential consequences of mistakes made in a cosmetic surgery. If a surgeon acts negligently during the operation, a patient might suffer:
- Serious and permanent scarring
- Deformations or lumps under skin
- Loss of feeling or tingling in parts of the body
- Serious infections
There are many other possible side effects of cosmetic surgery. Being dissatisfied with the results of a cosmetic surgery is not enough to warrant a lawsuit, but health complications attributable to surgical errors may provide cause for legal action.
