Breast Implant Malpractice Attorney
Making the decision to undergo breast implant surgery is a personal choice for many people. There is usually an element of fantasy associated with the stories cosmetic surgeons may sell you, as if getting a breast is as easy as going through a fast food drive thru. Picking the right doctor to perform your procedure is essential to a successful outcome. However, despite research and recommendations, doctors do make mistakes and rather than own up to those mistakes, they sometimes take advantage of the situation.
Saline and silicone are the two most common types of breast implants used by cosmetic surgeons. There are four FDA-approved methods by which a cosmetic surgeon may insert the implant. These include:
- Inframammary – In breast fold
- Transaxillary – Under the arm
- Periareolar – Around the nipple
- Mastectomy Scar
Due to the complexity of the procedures above, there are multiple opportunities for cosmetic surgeons to botch your surgery due to lack of experience or poor post-op care. As a result, you may be at risk for injuries such as:
- Asymmetrical placement
After an assessment of your injuries, you may find that you need to spend more time under the knife, costing you much more money. Even with more surgery, sometimes these errors cannot be corrected and you may be forced to live with scars and additional complications for the rest of your life. Fortunately, there is hope at least in the form of receiving compensation for additional surgeries and your pain and suffering. By hiring an experienced Michigan breast implant malpractice attorney, you may be compensated for all damages.
Damages are a consequence of poor performance during and after surgery. While it is normal to expect some pain, swelling, and bruising after surgery, sometimes these symptoms may continue to get worse because of the negligence of your cosmetic surgeon.
It is important that you keep a record of all medical bills and document your visits because you may need these to file your claim.
