Liposuction Injuries and Complications – File Your Legal Claim Here
It is estimated that close to 350,000 liposuction procedures are performed in the country each you. Unsurprisingly, over 90 percent of the recipients of this kind of surgery are women. This form of plastic surgery is considered elective, and it is the most common form of plastic surgery in the country. Liposuction involves the removal of fat from areas such as the hips, stomach and buttock area using a cannula which is a hollow tube, as well as an aspirator which is used to suck out the fat. This procedure can not only be addictive, but it can produce instant yet dangerous results given the multitude of risks associated with the procedure. Plastic surgery malpractice is on the rise, in part due to the mushrooming of “spas” that use laser technology to melt fat and then suction it out: most of these centers are not licensed or do not have the needed personnel to perform these kinds of procedures, which can produce a vast number of side-effects such as blood clots, bleeding, organ perforation and permanent indentations which can be expensive to rectify. If you were the victim of liposuction malpractice, you have every right to file a lawsuit to recover money damages and justice, something we can definitely help you with.
