What is a Surgery Error?
Surgery errors can be defined as any easily avoidable error that occurs during surgery. Surgery errors are due to negligence and are different than the informed risks that are often discussed prior to a surgery.
Types of Cosmetic Surgery Errors
The most common error resulting from cosmetic surgery is receiving too much or little anesthesia. Too much anesthesia can cause permanent brain damage and even lead to death. Other common cosmetic surgery errors that can occur are:
- The wrong surgery
- Equipment malfunction
- A surgical tool left after the surgery
- Bad judgment calls
- Wrongful death
Cosmetic surgery errors can occur for a variety of reasons such as a surgeon’s fatigue, the use of alcohol and other drugs, improper surgery planning, neglect, and more.
