Breast Implants, Get the Facts!
Just last week, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved a new line of silicone breast implants for use in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Interestingly, the FDA is approving the same substance that created the need for mass removal of hundreds of thousands of leaking implants causing a variety of health problems not to mention additional corrective surgery(s).
It is crucial that patients educate themselves on the facts and risks of the different type of implants. Additionally, and every bit as important, is the selection of a qualified plastic surgeon. Make sure that the surgeon has the education, experience, and reputation to give you the best chance at a good outcome.
Sadly, patients/clients have sometimes based their decision on price and in the process have been swayed by photo albums showing the physicians alleged “results.” Unfortunately, the “results” in pictures can be far different in reality.
What constitutes a personal injury?
The most common personal injury is an auto accident, but the broad definition encompasses any situation where a person suffers harm due to the negligence of another person or entity. Early identification of a personal injury is important to the legal process. Many serious injuries occur each year involving:
– Auto accidents
– Premises liability accidents such as injuries caused by a slip and fall
– Medical malpractice/nursing home injuries
– Wrongful death
– Work-related accidents
– Animal attacks
– Faulty or malfunctioning products (product liability)
