So you decided to go under the knife and get plastic surgery, you saved up your money and your decision has been made. You have read about cosmetic surgery nightmares, but you are not worried because you have done your research and you found a well-qualified surgeon to perform the cosmetic surgery in Virginia. Or so you thought . . . .
Plastic Surgery Isn’t Always Perfect
Plastic surgery does not always turn out as planned. If you underwent plastic surgery in Virginia or Washington, D.C. and mistakes were made, call a Virginia medical malpractice lawyer at Shevlin Smith to discuss your next steps. Our team of experienced lawyers will help you recover if your surgeon was negligent.
If you are a victim of bad plastic surgery, our medical malpractice lawyers will work with you as you take the following steps:
- Make an appointment with the surgeon to discuss your concerns.
- Get a second opinion if your surgeon is unwilling to rectify the situation; you may wish to speak with a specialist in corrective surgery.
- Obtain all of the required documentation to build a case, such as photos, medical records, and complaints/grievances filed. This will be important evidence to show medical negligence.
You could have lifelong complications and disfigurement from a botched plastic surgery. This could change your life forever.
