Woman Seeks $300,000 for Wrong Implants

Published March 18, 2010 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

The Associated Press reports an Ohio woman is suing her Pennsylvania plastic surgeon for $300,000 after she used the wrong breast implants.

According to the patient, even though she had chosen silicone implants on her doctor’s advice, saline implants were used instead because they were the only kind the surgeon’s office had in stock at the time of the surgery. After realizing the mistake, the doctor consulted the patient’s fiance and he told her to continue with the surgery even though he did not have the power to make the decision.

The lawsuit claims the doctor committed medical battery, medical malpractice, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment for keeping her under anesthesia longer than necessary while trying to correct the mistake.
