Practice Areas > Medical Malpractice > Cosmetic Surgery

Approximately 12 million cosmetic surgeries are performed each year. Sadly, with the increase in the number of surgeries there is, unfortunately, an increase in the number of medical errors that occur in connection with these procedures. These mistakes can lead to devastating results for patients.

The following are some of the cases that we have handled involving surgical errors that occurred during the performance of cosmetic surgical procedures:

  • Paralysis following a brow lift
  • Loss of vision following Lasik laser eye surgery
  • Facial palsy following a face lift
  • Loss of sensation of taste following a rhinoplasty
  • Significant disfigurement and scarring following breast augmentation surgery

If you feel as though you or someone you know has been injured as a result of the negligent performance of cosmetic surgery please contact Friedman & Moses to discuss the specifics of your claim.
