Plastic surgery patient undergoing popular procedure dies

Plastic surgery is a popular procedure for many Miami residents. People undergo plastic surgery in order to help themselves look better, correct physical deformities, and bring back their physical appearance after an accident. One popular procedure, the Brazilian butt lift is under scrutiny after several patients have died after undergoing the procedure.

A popular surgical clinic in Miami, New Life, is under scrutiny yet again after at least 8 patients have died after undergoing the Brazilian butt lift procedure. Six of the patients died from fat clots that were in their heart or lungs and two patients have not had their autopsy results released. During the procedure doctors use a metal rod to suction fat out of the patient's body and is re-inserted into the patient's buttocks. The most recent patient who has died from the procedure at New Life was released about seven hours after underdoing the procedure and went to a friend's house to recover. That night she was rushed to Kendall Regional where she was placed on a ventilator and died three days later.

When a person undergoes surgery, they expect their surgeon is an expert in their field. Surgeons undergo years of medical training and should be the best at what they do. Most people who undergo surgery receive excellent care, but occasionally a medical mistake occurs. No one expects their surgery will result in their death, but it can happen. If a family is facing a circumstance where a family member died because of a medical procedure they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in medical malpractice. An attorney can review medical records and get answers as to what happened. If negligence is suspected an attorney can hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

Although plastic surgery is a common medical procedure it doesn't mean that there aren't mistakes that are made. It is important to hold negligent medical professionals accountable for their mistakes so that they don't harm anyone else.
