Millions of people undergo plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery every year, either for required medical purposes or for purely cosmetic reasons. Due to the potential for profit as a cosmetic surgeon, thousands of doctors have begun to specialize in this field. Unfortunately, many are unlicensed, inexperienced, uncertified, untrained, and have caused a great deal of harm to patients.
Cosmetic Surgery Malpractice
Common types of cosmetic surgery that are often botched include breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction, and Botox treatments. While ads for these types of surgeries can be found everywhere, there sadly is very little oversight.
