Plastic Surgery Malpractice
Liposuction is a routine plastic surgery procedure. However, if a blood vessel is punctured and fat loosened during the procedure enters the bloodstream this pay it can travel to the lungs or brain. Once it travels to the lungs it can cause a pulmonary embolism or a stroke if it lodges in the brain. Malpractice may occur if the surgeon causes a puncture wound to an organ while performing liposuction. This type of injury results in internal bleeding that may be fatal if it goes undetected within a short time after the surgery. Wound infections from staph to necrotizing fasciitis have been associated with liposuction.
While breast augmentation is another routine surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons, it has risks that are special to the procedure. Carelessness on the part of the surgeon may result in a leaky implant because of an improperly sealed valve. The leaky implant in the breast may deflate immediately or over a period of several years, resulting in illness from exposure to the saline, which may be contaminated with bacteria, resulting in an infection.
Plastic and reconstructive surgeons are often sued for errors in surgical technique, especially those related to breast augmentation, breast reduction. They may also be sued for improper diagnosis and treatment of post-operative infections or failure to obtain hemostasis during or after surgery.
