Every year, cosmetic surgery continues to rise in popularity. One of the most popular procedures is liposuction, a surgery where a medical cannula and suction are used to extract fat from the body. As liposuction increases in popularity, so too does the number of injuries that occur when plastic surgeons negligently perform the procedure.

Pennsylvania Plastic Surgeon Malpractice Lawyers
Liposuction injuries occur in a variety of situations, all of them requiring extensive documentation and expert witness testimony to build a solid case. We conduct thorough investigations and work with an established network of experts to help clients injured by any type of liposuction injury, including those caused by:
- Surgical error: Cutting too deep, inappropriate use of surgical instruments, performing surgery while fatigued and many other types of surgical errors can lead to damage to the skin, muscles, connective tissue and internal organs.
- Instruments left in patient: When scalpels, sponges or other surgical instruments are left inside a patient, a second surgery is necessary to correct the surgeon's actions. More medical care may be necessary to fix any damage that results from the tool being left inside the patient.
- Infection and other complications: Improperly sterilized equipment, inadequately trained staff, rushed procedures and other forms of negligence can lead to infections or other after-procedure injuries that can cause severe and even permanent damage.
- Anesthesia: It is also possible to suffer harm from the anesthesia that you are given as part of the liposuction procedure. Localized toxicity can damage nerves, resulting in inadequate ventilation leading to brain damage.
Our comprehensive approach to personal injury and medical malpractice allows us to represent in these and all other types of liposuction injury cases.
