Botched Cosmetic Surgery Could Be Grounds For Medical Malpractice Suit

06 April

It seems like everyone wants the perfect body nowadays, be it a flatter stomach or a bigger butt or permanently sculpted muscles. So many opt for cosmetic surgery instead of hours of pain and gain in the gym. Cosmetic surgery, to some, is a great quick fix that gets the results they want in a fraction of a time. Although most cosmetic surgery performed is elective and not an emergency (like a skin graph for a burn victim), it is still surgery and has its risks. Risks that could do more damage than good.

What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is elective surgery, often chosen to enhance some part of the body Tummy tucks or butt implants are examples of cosmetic surgery. Because cosmetic surgery is elective, health insurers most likely will not pay for it. That means that most people who want cosmetic surgery have to pay for it themselves. This leads a lot of people to seek “alternative” routes for their procedure. Needless to say, countless numbers of these surgeries end in disaster, even worse, death.

Obstacles in Winning the Case

Representing a client in a cosmetic surgery malpractice suit is an uphill battle. There are some obstacles to get the past, but Jed Kurzban has the experience and the legal backup to take on any client.

The Surgery Was Not Necessary
Because the surgery was elective and not necessary, juries may give the surgeon the benefit of the doubt. After all, the victim most likely wanted the surgery to enhance their body instead of having bona fide medical reason to go through with it. In their minds, they may think, “you should not be so quick to lay the blame on the surgeon.” Even if the patient wins the case, they are usually awarded a lower amount than what is asked for.

The Jury Already Has an Opinion in Mind
The jury may think the person is lazy for wanting the “easy way out” instead of going to the gym and working on their body. With this negative perception, the jury is, in essence, punishing the victim for having the procedure. Some jurors may have had successful cosmetic surgery themselves and don’t see a need to punish the surgeon. This can make it difficult for them to empathize with the victim.
