Cosmetic Surgery Injury Attorneys in Evans, Augusta, Thomson, and Waynesboro
When you’re consulting a cosmetic surgeon, you’re placing faith in their ability to correct something that’s already causing you grief—why else are you seeking surgery to correct it? You believed them when they told you that you were, literally, in their good hands. What do you do when you realize they’ve amplified your challenge into a full-blown crisis with a botched cosmetic surgical procedure? What happens to your trust? How do you deal with the anger and helplessness you feel? Do you have the right to feel this way?
When your botched cosmetic surgery leaves you with emotional and physical scars, seeking legal advice is in your best interests. You’re not angry and lashing out for revenge—you’re doing what you can to create favorable conditions for your healing. How can you heal if you’re worried about having to go back to work? Or pay for another cosmetic surgery to repair a botched one? You have a right to protect your family’s income while you heal from a medical procedure gone wrong.
People entrust their appearance to cosmetic surgeons for a variety of reasons. You don’t deserve to feel punished for wanting to improve your quality of life, and you don’t owe any special explanations when something goes wrong. Whatever your reasons for your surgery, some common complications that can result from it are:
Leakage—injections, implants, and other substances positioned in the body have the potential to leak into adjacent areas, damaging tissue, bone, joints, and muscle.
Mistakes—the operating room attendants can make a mistake during the procedure that can result in injury or death, like performing the procedure on the wrong body part, or not observing operating room sanitation.
Your cosmetic surgeon owes you their duty to your safety and appearance before, during, and after your surgery. When they breach that security through negligence somewhere in the process, you have every right to make a claim against their negligence, because they’re medical specialists and they were trained better.
