Too Much Plastic Surgery Can Have Devastating Effects

The risks of personal injury resulting from cosmetic surgery may be compounded by multiple procedures.


2010-08-13
August 13, 2010 (Press-News.org) Medical malpractice claims against plastic surgeons can involve a variety of procedures. Patients who undergo breast implants, breast reduction, liposuction or facelifts may have to consider legal action if the medical professional they trusted caused severe scarring, infection, disease, malformation, tissue damage or other unexpected and often unexplained results. People who sought vast improvements in their personal appearance may face a future of embarrassment, pain, discomfort, medical complications and corrective surgeries. But imagine the combined effect of undergoing multiple procedures over a short period, and then having to deal with multiple failures.

To many people, the infamous Jocelyn "Cat Woman" Wildenstein is the poster child for surgical alteration that has gone too far. But the recent experience of a British flight attendant who won a reality TV radical makeover reveals the extremes to which unchecked cosmetic surgeons can go.

In Pursuit of Beauty, a Life Drastically Altered

When Nicola Stratton was chosen by "Brand New You," an extreme makeover show on British television, she was feeling a deep need to improve her appearance for her husband, who apparently did not share her opinion. She soon was flown to Los Angeles, where she underwent 30 hours of cosmetic surgery in only six weeks. Surgeons modified her brow, ears and nose, and augmented her breasts. She received an eye lift, as well as liposuction on her chin, jaw, stomach, back and hips. She underwent laser eye surgery and extensive dental work. All of these alterations were worth a quarter of a million dollars at the posh L.A. clinic.

She was initially elated with the changes, but then things began to go wrong. A saline breast implant ruptured, and she learned she would have to pay her own way back to California and handle her own hospital fees. Both breasts were updated with silicone implants. Then one of those had to be replaced because of a buildup of scar tissue. Just as important, her transformation exacted a personal toll: Stratton and her husband divorced, then she left the travel industry to work in a prison.

Stratton was rueful when interviewed by the Daily Mail, a London tabloid: "It's a cautionary tale. People going in for surgery on these TV programs need to check the small print very carefully ... Now I know it was too good to be true."

Holding Plastic Surgeons to the Highest Standards of Practice

Physicians should have frank discussions with patients who are considering cosmetic surgery and disclose all of the risks and implications. In the event that things go drastically wrong, an experienced medical malpractice attorney can share insights about a patient's legal options and discuss their prospects for recovering damages.

High Stakes for Overdue Borrowers: Are Debtors Prisons Coming Back?

2010-08-13
Overwhelming debt puts plenty of pressure on borrowers who must endure constant creditor harassment while they choose which obligations to face during difficult financial times. But that is a minor nuisance compared to spending a night or two in jail. The practice of locking up debtors who fail to respond to legal notices is not practiced everywhere, but reports from communities across the country reveal that debt collection companies have enlisted local authorities to use the full force of the law in enforcing warrants for even minor debt. Formal debtor's prisons were ...

The Dodd-Frank Act: Financial Reform and New Whistleblower Protections

2010-08-13
President Obama's July signing of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act brings increased oversight to an industry that many feel recklessly brought about "The Great Recession" and sent the economy into a tailspin. The stated aims of the new law include improving transparency and accountability in the financial system, ending bailouts by American taxpayers, putting an end to the idea that any institution is "too big to fail," and protecting consumers from improper financial services practices. One important strategy is the extension of incentives ...

A Backlog for SSDI Cases: Is Help on the Way for Disability Applicants?

2010-08-13
One little known side effect of the prolonged recession is a rise in the number of applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). In an average year, the Social Security Administration considers 2.5 million applications for disability benefits. But cases were up by 20 percent over the past year and are likely to increase to well over 3 million in the coming year, according to SSA chief actuary Stephen Goss. One obvious reason is that workers who have endured disabilities may decide to seek benefits after losing a ...

Bureaucratic Reform of Truck Driver Safety Inches Ahead

2010-08-13
This scene is all too common on North Carolina highways and back roads: on a recent July night near the end of a long drive, a Georgia trucker hauling over 20 tons of a highly combustible chemical overturned on a sharp mountain curve. He had followed GPS commands onto a rural gravel road between Lenoir and Banner Elk, where he planned to sleep for the night before delivering his load the next day. Perhaps the only uncommon thing about this accident is that no other vehicles were involved, and nobody was severely injured or killed. Trucking accidents like this happen ...
