Michigan Plastic Surgery Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Michigan Plastic Surgery Medical Malpractice LawyersOur Michigan plastic surgery malpractice lawyers represent clients injured and damaged in these types of surgical procedures. Cosmetic Surgery and plastic surgery are any surgical procedures performed for the purposes of appearance. Reconstructive surgery is a form of cosmetic surgery.

Plastic surgery procedures are often elective and done for the purpose of increasing a patient’s self-esteem and improving their appearance. Many times, the surgery is not specifically to “beautify” the patient but to correct an injury or disfiguring condition. Like all surgical procedures, there are risks and complications inherent to cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery. Some of these complications are due to medical malpractice or surgical error, while others can be normal complications or the patient is simply not satisfied with the result.

In order to file a plastic surgery medical malpractice claim against a plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon, it must be established that the physician was negligent in the performance of the procedure.   Medical malpractices cases from these types of elective procedures are often seen in these types of surgeries:

  • Blepharoplasty (Surgery of the Eyelids)
  • Facial Scar Revision
  • Forehead Lifts
  • Hair Replacement
  • Laser Surgery
  • Mentoplasty (Surgery of the Chin)
  • Otoplasty (Surgery of the Ears)
  • Rhinoplasty (Surgery of the Nose)
  • Rhytidectomy (Surgery of the Face) S
  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Breast Reduction
  • Tummy Tucks
