Cosmetic Surgery Medical Malpractice Increasing
All types of plastic surgery procedures – nose jobs, breast augmentation, liposuction, eye lifts, face lifts and others – are on the rise in Arkansas. Some doctors are doing “assembly line” surgeries – four or more a day – and making millions doing it.
But cosmetic surgery is still surgery, and it is still dangerous. Anybody who has ever watched what happens in a breast augmentation, tummy tuck or face lift will never forget that fact.
Untrained Doctors Doing Plastic Surgery
It only takes a little slip of the surgeon’s knife to cause terrible injuries. In a moment of negligence, even a good surgeon is capable of medical malpractice. However, most cases of cosmetic surgery malpractice involve surgeons who have little or no training in cosmetic surgery, and no idea how to handle problems during surgery if they come up.
Hundreds of “medical spas” and “rejuvenation clinics” have been opened across the country and in Arkansas, promising quick and easy beauty. People are being misled into thinking that their doctor is a trained surgeon when actually the doctor operating on them is trained as a family practice doctor or a cardiologist. This is dangerous, and people are getting hurt.
