Damages and medical errors in cosmetic surgery
Plastic or cosmetic surgery is a very popular social phenomenon that responds to the patient's desire to improve physical defects and imperfections and to get closer to a model of ideal beauty.
As in all types of surgical procedures, post-operative complications such as infections, bleeding, wound openings or loss of eyesight may occur even in cosmetic surgery.
In general, the risks that can occur in cosmetic surgery are generally more moderate and less frequent, provided that all safety protocols are respected.
Although less serious, medical errors in cosmetic surgery are often evident since they leave visible marks on the patient's face or body, often not in line with the expected aesthetic result.
For this reason, before proceeding with an operation, the cosmetic surgeon is obliged to inform the patient about the potential risks and the actual results that can be expected.
In cosmetic surgery medical errors can lead to compensation for damage, that can be physical and psychological, and it is often liquidated by the insurance subscribed personally by the doctors or directly by the hospitals.
