All plastic surgery is usually performed with a common objective. The
goal of any plastic surgery is to create a beautiful, youthful, and
natural appearance. However, surgery is an art and not an exact
science, which can result in an unfavorable cosmetic surgery outcome
due to plastic surgery error. Plastic surgeon error by a mediocre
plastic surgeon is the equivalent of giving a child a box of crayons
and asking them to recreate Leonardo DaVinci's Mona Lisa . Most
plastic surgery errors are not true errors, but rather unrealized
expectations. In some cases, however, true errors do occur.
The way the patient heals is often the greatest contributor to
plastic surgery error. Some patient's tissues excessively scar both
internally or externally, leading to mal-position or malfunction of
the tissues. Outdated techniques, under-experienced or poorly
trained surgeons, as well as poor judgment, misinterpretations of
the underlying problem, or chance may also play a role in plastic
surgery error. Often, plastic surgery errors will correct themselves
over time, but when the plastic surgery error is on the most visible
part of your body or your face, the results can be devastating, and
a solution to the problem should be sought.
Board-certified plastic surgeons frequently consult with their
colleagues for each other's expertise in revising and correcting
plastic surgery error. Having a team of specialists who focus on a
different area of facial, body, and reconstructive surgery reduces
the occurrence of plastic surgery error. It also allows them to take
plastic surgery error and transform them into success stories.
Common plastic surgery errors usually occur during eyelid surgery,
nose surgery, facelifts, and breast surgeries. While any surgery has
inherent risks and potential complications, there are some measures
you can take to minimize your risk. Before consenting to plastic
surgery, it is important to know what procedures your doctor
specializes in. You should also know how many he or she has
performed, how recently they performed the plastic surgery, and
research his or her track record and reputation. Try to get a
referral to a cosmetic surgeon from a doctor or a friend who has had
a procedure similar to one you are considering. Try and get names of
patients who had similar operations to see if they experienced any
plastic surgery errors.
Plan to be in your best physical health before having surgery, and
agree to follow pre- and post-operative instructions, which are
designed to optimize your result. Discuss with your surgeon the
anticipated and realistic results. Finally, evaluate your surgeon
for the three A's: affability, ability, and availability. This will
give you an idea of how your surgeon will handle any complications,
in the unlikely event that one does occur, and this will help you
avoid plastic surgery error.
If all your research doesn't pan out and you become the
"one-in-a-hundred" that suffers from plastic surgery error, all is
not lost. While your health is the first issue, getting an attorney
should be your second. Contact an attorney to file a claim against
your plastic surgery error and receive the compensation you are due.
