Plastic surgery expert witnesses are experienced in various cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Certain situations can lead to grounds for potential lawsuits, such as medical malpractice, failure to properly inform a patient prior to a procedure, adverse reactions to surgery, negligence in caring for the patient, or other such incidents of inadequate medical care.
