Florida is considered a prominent cosmetic surgery destination for patients. Unfortunately, along with the many skilled plastic surgeons in Florida, there are also several that are unlicensed, unqualified, or simply prone to making negligent errors because they may operate solely to maximize their profits.
Cosmetic Surgical Complications Caused by Negligence
Cosmetic surgery requires careful preparation, execution, and post-operative supervision like any other form of major surgery. Consequences can be catastrophic if an attending surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist, or another medical professional fails to provide the expected standard of care.
Victims of cosmetic surgery malpractice in Florida may experience severe complications and injuries resulting from:
- Infection at the incision site
- Excessive bleeding
- Fluid build-up underneath the skin
- Heart attack
- Blood clots or stroke
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Development of hematoma
- Permanent disfigurement or scarring
- Adverse reaction to anesthesia
