Miami and Fort Lauderdale are seen by many as top cosmetic surgery destinations due to their relaxed medical regulations, status as tourist hotspots, and the belief they are home to many skilled medical professionals. Unfortunately, this perception has created an environment where patients are often uninformed or do not seriously consider the medical malpractice risks associated with cosmetic surgery.
Therefore, an alarming trend has begun, where untrustworthy facilities employing unqualified and unlicensed surgeons are marketing their services to unsuspecting customers.
Cosmetic surgery malpractice can result in catastrophic injuries or death
Any operation should be taken seriously, no matter how common it is. Individuals in Miami and Fort Lauderdale seeking routine procedures, like tummy tucks or Brazilian butt lifts, have died from medical errors or the use of unsafe chemicals. For the most part, these tragic incidents are the result of reckless operations that should not have been performed by unlicensed surgical centers.
Unfortunately, those deaths or catastrophic injuries are not a thing of the past. A recent USA Today report examining just a handful of South Florida’s many clinics found that 13 women lost their lives and nearly a dozen more were hospitalized after receiving such surgeries between 2013 and 2018.
