Plastic surgery is one of the most widespread forms of elective surgery in our society. . Thanks to her, not only those patients who want to see improved some aspect of your image can see fulfilled their wishes. Also those others who suffered tragic as extirpation of breast or scars and terrible defacements in accidents can regain his smile and events, in many cases, the will to live. Unfortunately, sometimes aesthetic procedures do not leave the desired shape, in such a way that the patient remains substantially dissatisfied by their appearance after the intervention. Very often, this type of unwanted results can be settled, while at other times this is not possible, with the consequent trauma of permanent character in the life of the patient. The question posed here is, to what extent in this type of event could talk of negligence on the part of the surgeon who performed the intervention? The attribution of blame in the case of undesired results in surgery is a mistake to consider that always and in any case not desired outcomes of an intervention are attributable to your own surgeon. Many times it happens that, despite discouraging an intervention because its outcome may not be optimal, it is impossible to persuade the patient about it. This is very common when a person is subjected to a very large number of interventions, exist less and less amount of tissue to be able to practice it.
On other occasions, however, it has more to do with failure when practicing the intervention. Under these circumstances, the easiest thing would identify objectively unsatisfactory aspects and present them to the surgeon, which safely carried out a new reconstructive intervention that possibly they can be solved, no additional cost for the patient. However, it may happen that they would have caused irreparable damage to this. For example, if in a facial intervention had been damaged nerves with the result of paralysis (lack of mobility) and insensitivity in the face. It is in this kind of case can when we talk of compensable surgical negligence. The consequences of an intervention defective, for not having respected plastic surgeon protocols established by medical for such operations science, can be tremendous, psychologically as well as physical level (paralysis, deformities or scars). Hence derives that compensable character, so as a palliative against the trauma that supposed not to see fulfilled their wishes after the operation which decided to undergo can be provided to the patient.
