Cosmetic surgery malpractice can occur if the surgeon is not properly trained or fails to adhere to the appropriate standards of care when performing the cosmetic procedure. Medical mistakes made during a cosmetic procedure can result in devastating results, including disfigurement, serious injury and even death.
Cosmetic surgery has become an increasingly prevalent and profitable business for medical professionals. Unfortunately, the popularity of cosmetic surgery has attracted a number of medical professionals that lack the skill and knowledge necessary to perform cosmetic surgery with the level of medical care that is necessary for complex surgical procedures, including cosmetic surgery.
