Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Malpractice
As with any field of medicine, cosmetic surgery is an area in which
medical malpractice may occur. One of the unfortunate aspects of cosmetic surgery malpractice is that a person seeking to enhance his or her appearance may be left with serious injuries, scars or even deformities that defeat the entire purpose of the emotional uplift that properly performed cosmetic procedures can bestow on a patient.

What is Cosmetic Surgery Malpractice?
Cosmetic surgery malpractice occurs when a cosmetic surgeon or any medical professional or facility dealing with cosmetic surgery fails to provide proper treatment or care to a patient. Cosmetic surgery may include such procedures as liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, face lift, breast reduction, thigh lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and also non-surgical procedures such as Botox or skin filler injections. Many of these procedures will require general anesthesia and are complex surgical procedures, which means that issues such as
anesthesia errors, mistakes during
postoperative infection or complications will need to be carefully avoided. Virtually any mistake or failure by a Bakersfield cosmetic surgeon to provide standard care before, during or after a procedure may constitute cosmetic surgery malpractice and may leave a patient seriously injured.
