Things to do after a bad plastic surgery
Bad plastic surgery fascinates us. From gossip columns to TV specials, we can’t stop hearing about it. There are entire websites devoted to bad plastic surgeries. They have countless photos of celebrities like Tara Reid, and Donatella Versace. And even those who deny the plastic surgery rumors, like Jessica Simpson.
What happens if the bad plastic surgery result you see isn’t displayed on the latest blog post but rather in the mirror? Here are the steps you can take.
Call your surgeon
The first thing you should do if you think you’ve had bad plastic surgery is to call your surgeon and set up a consultation. This is always the best first step. Unless you have a reason to distrust your plastic surgeon or are otherwise uncomfortable speaking to them. Then speaking to your health concierge first is the best first step.
Wait for some time to heal
Healing needs time after even the most minor plastic surgery procedures. And it could be that the first results are simply a normal part of the healing process. Like the saying about surgery goes, “It may get worse before it gets better”.
Consider your surgery may be one step in the process
Extensive or detailed surgical reconstruction procedures require several procedures. When this is the case, the “gets worse before getting better” saying rings true. Hopefully, you will already be aware that further surgeries are required if this is the case. But it’s important to keep this in mind when assessing bad plastic surgery results.
Think of the possibility of a corrective surgery
If your bad plastic surgery isn’t related to healing or the need for an additional procedure, then you must realize that even the best plastic surgeons have complications. If you are unhappy with the results of your surgery, your surgeon may offer to do corrective surgery at no charge to you.
Many people quickly dismiss their original surgeon out of frustration, but the fact is that your original surgeon may be in the best place to make sure corrective surgery is effective, by knowing how you heal, and how your surgery turned out. Speak with your health concierge about taking further action.
Document your communication
Finally, if you truly feel you have been wronged in some way by your surgeon, be sure to document your complaint. Compile written notes, including dates, times, symptoms, problems, and photos, if possible. When you have your information together, you can file a complaint with the state medical board and/or with the Office of Professional Medical Conduct. Then, if you feel you are entitled to compensation for your botched procedure, you may decide to contact a lawyer who specializes in medical cases.
For best results, work with a health concierge that’ll monitor and ensure your needs are met. Speak with one today.
