Cosmetic surgery should be considered safe and those who undergo a procedure expect that it will be completed properly and safely. Unfortunately, a cosmetic procedure went wrong for one local woman, who suffered severe injuries after the procedure was done. The woman has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the medical group alleging that they were negligent in using the wrong materials in her procedure. The lawsuit seeks damages of more than $50,000 and is requesting a jury trial.
Bioplasty Gone Wrong
Many different types of cosmetic procedures are available to enhance or improve the body. A bioplasty is a cosmetic procedure used mainly to enhance the buttocks.. During the procedure either prosthetic inserts or some type of material is injected to increase the size of the buttocks. While this type of procedure is usually safe, there are sometimes problems that can occur, particularly when the doctor is negligent. In this case, the woman suffered pain and bleeding after the procedure and the area became infected.
