Can I make a breast augmentation medical malpractice claim?

Going under the knife for the purpose of plastic surgery carries with it many of the same risks that other surgeries have. The fact that you choose to have an aesthetic surgery does not mean that you should be subject to any lower safety standards.

If you had a bad experience when having breast augmentation surgery in Georgia, the consequences of the surgery may have negatively affected your life. Your health may be suffering as a result of the implants, or you may be feeling self-conscious about the way that you look because a mistake was made. If you are suffering physically or emotionally after the surgery, you may be able to make a claim for malpractice against the surgeon in question. The following are some common issues that can lead to the patient making a claim.

Loss of sensation permanently

Many surgery patients experience a temporary loss of sensation that occurs after the procedure. This is generally normal and will only be present while the body heals. However, some might experience permanent nerve damage to the breasts, which can be a very upsetting experience.

Implant extrusions

If the surgeon recommends implants that are simply too big for you, you may be at risk of suffering an implant extrusion. This is a situation in which the stitches are torn open post operation.

There are many reasons why a breast augmentation patient may want to make a claim. If you have had a bad surgery experience, you should make sure to take action and hold the surgeon responsible for their actions.
