Baltimore Plastic Surgery Error Attorneys

Fighting Tirelessly for Clients across the United States

Most people associate plastic surgery mistakes with the rich and famous. We have all seen magazines plastered with images of celebrities who have taken cosmetic procedures too far. What many people don’t realize is that plastic surgery errors can happen to anyone. This cases may not make the news, but they happen every day.

Cosmetic surgeons perform about 14.6 million plastic surgery procedures every year in the United States, and many of these operations take place in outpatient surgery centers where patients are sent home just hours after surgery. Other cosmetic procedures are carried out in spas and dentists’ offices.

If you have been the victim of a plastic surgery mistake, you may not know where to turn. At LawMD, many of our attorneys are also medical doctors. We understand that plastic surgery is still surgery—with all the risks and potentially bad outcomes possible in any type of surgical procedure.

Whether you have been injured in a hospital, a freestanding clinic, a dentist’s office, or a day spa, we can help you fight for the compensation and justice you deserve.

Why Do Cosmetic Surgery Errors Happen?

The first thing to understand about plastic surgery is that it encompasses much more than just so-called “vanity procedures” like tummy tucks and breast augmentations. In many cases, patients go under the knife because their health and well-being depends on it. People with migraine headaches, chronic sinusitis, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder often turn to plastic surgery to relieve debilitating pain. Similarly, burn victims and individuals who have suffered amputations may need a series of cosmetic procedures to improve their mobility and function.

Cosmetic procedures are also frequently used to restore a patient’s dignity and quality of life. Women who have undergone mastectomies can greatly benefit from breast reconstruction surgery. Patients who have lost hundreds of pounds can reclaim their mobility by undergoing skin removal procedures. Children born with birth defects, such as a cleft palate, can lead full, active lives as a result of cosmetic surgery.

Plastic surgery and related procedures have also expanded over the years to include skin rejuvenation, varicose vein removal, and other in-office procedures that offer an improved appearance and greater self-esteem. Although the majority of these procedures are low-risk, mistakes do happen.

At LawMD, our Baltimore plastic surgery attorneys have handled cases involving:

In rare cases, patients have even died during or immediately after a cosmetic procedure. In some instances, these deaths occur in outpatient clinics, which are not always equipped with the same life-saving equipment and resources as hospitals with emergency rooms and trauma centers.

In other cases, doctors perform procedures on patients who are not healthy enough to withstand the rigors of anesthesia and blood loss. Our lawyers have also represented patients who suffered heart failure or severe blood loss on the operating table due to a doctor nicking a nearby organ or mismanaging the surgery. These cases occur rarely, but they are catastrophic when they happen.
