Blepharoplasty is, generally, considered a cosmetic surgery. During the process, excess skin, muscle, or tissue is removed from above and/or below the eye. The eyelid may also undergo surgery to reduce drooping eyelids and reduce lazy eye effects. When conducted properly, Blepharoplasty can increase a person’s confidence, appearance, and self-worth. However, when not conducted properly, the results can be catastrophic.
Risks vs. Negligence
Surgery around the eyes is an extremely risky procedure (as is any surgery). Most doctors and practitioners will convey the risks to you prior to surgery. Yet, some of these risks should be avoided by a professional eye surgeon. So how can you determine if your injury is a result of the risk taken with the surgery or if it is negligence.
Risks involved in surgery are those developments which are outside of the surgeons and your control. Typically, these risks include swelling, infection of the site, and scaring. The swelling and other common post-surgery symptoms may cause temporary blurred vision.
Negligence is when you have proof that the eye surgeon did not perform the surgery to the standard of the medical profession and that through the negligence of the surgeon injury was sustained. Basically, negligence is injury which occurs to you which could have been avoided if the medical staff, practitioners, or doctors had done their jobs properly.
Do I have grounds for a Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) claim?
If you have undergone Blepharoplasty surgery and have suffered any injury you may be entitled to compensation. Eye surgeons must be licensed in the optometry field in order to conduct surgery. If you have had surgery from a surgeon who is not specifically licensed for optometry, you have grounds for a claim.
If you have undergone Blepharoplasty surgery on the upper and/or the lower eyelid to reduce drooping of the eyelid but have seen no progress in your condition or if your condition has worsened you may have grounds for a claim.
Persons who have suffered from diminished vision or from a loss of vision after the eyelid surgery was performed may have grounds for a claim. You definitively have grounds for a claim if the surgery has resulted in the loss of the eye.
Those which have had to undergo multiple surgeries in order to “fix” a result of a prior blepharoplasty surgery may have grounds for a claim if the follow-up surgery is a result from negligence of the medical staff, practitioner, or doctor.
If the risks were not addressed prior to surgery, or if the risks were minimized and you find that you have developed conditions which go beyond the common results of the surgery, you may have grounds for a claim.
Surgeries are risky procedures which, generally, have accepted conditions which may form after the surgery. These conditions are usually temporary, but can be permanent (such as minor scarring). If you have any post-surgery conditions occur, you are encouraged to seek the professional advice of a medical staff, doctor, or practitioner. If you do not feel comfortable with returning to the medical staff, practitioner, or doctor who performed the surgery you are advised to seek another licensed professional who can assist you with your medical concerns. Do not stop any treatments, medications, or other advice given to you by one medical staff, practitioner, or doctor unless instructed to do so by a licensed medical professional.
When filing a Blepharoplasty claim it is essential to do so as quickly as possible. Many claims have a limitation on the timeframe in which to file, procedures and forms which must be submitted within a selected amount of days, and other practices which must be handled quickly and professionally. By filing your claim as quickly as possible, our professional staff can start on ensuring that all documentation is submitted within the time constraints allotted.
Claims filed against a medical staff, practitioner, or doctor need to have the name of not only the medical facility which conducted the surgery but also the individual who conducted the actual surgery. The reason for this is that many hospitals and medical facilities hire private practices to conduct surgeries. These are independent contractors with the hospitals and medical facilities and may or may not be currently associated with the place where you got your surgery. Ensure that you know who performed your surgery so that the correct person/ practice can be held accountable.
