Medical Malpractice Claim: Liposuction Treatment
A 34 year old female underwent liposuction treatment by a dermatologist. The dermatologist had attended seminars on performing liposuction, and was able to perform the procedure according to Florida law. The procedure resulted in massive full thickness skin loss to the lateral and rear thighs on both legs. As a result, skin grafting was required to replace the lost tissue. Permanent scarring to both thighs, as well as from the removal of skin for the grafting resulted.
