Have you suffered from Deformity and Disfigurement from Cosmetic Surgery?
Errors made by plastic surgeons, like mistakes made by any doctor, can have serious consequences. However, cosmetic surgery errors, when they lead to deformity and disfigurement, are also frightfully obvious. Victims who suffer these horrible consequences have the right to seek compensation to pay for medical costs, pain and suffering and other costs.
The law firm of Zamler, Mellen & Shiffman offers experienced and skilled attorneys committed to helping you through this ordeal.
If you have suffered deformity and disfigurement from cosmetic surgery errors, contact our plastic surgery malpractice lawyers. Over the course of more than 45 years, our lawyers have helped over 150,000 people and recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of negligence in Michigan.
Permanent Scars From Tummy Tucks, Breast Lifts, Tattoo Removal
When you visit a reputable surgeon prior to a plastic surgery procedure, he or she will show you a diagram of how you will look after the procedure. If you get a bad result, not only have your expectations been dashed, but you could have several painful and costly procedures ahead of you just to get back to normal.
Face Lift Surgery Errors
Our attorneys have represented clients who have suffered disfigurement and deformity from failed cosmetic surgery procedures:
- A woman in her forties sought a facelift with terrible results: her skin had been pulled too tight, causing her eyes to bulge and her eyebrows to appear much higher than the diagram shown to her by her plastic surgeon.
- In another case, a woman in her early forties wanted a breast enhancement and lift. After surgery, her breasts had been lifted too high. One of her nipples was 6 to 9 inches higher than the other one, causing her to appear deformed when fully dressed.
- We have represented clients whom have developed painful infections and permanent scars after relatively simple procedures. For example, one woman had excess fat removed from her stomach after losing weight. She suffered infection and permanent scars after agonizing through five painful surgeries. In another case, a man decided to remove a tattoo and suffered horrible scarring after the surgeon used the wrong laser.
A malpractice suit can damage a surgeon’s professional and social reputation — something they will fight to protect even when they know they have made a mistake. We will fight just as fiercely to protect your rights.
