New York medical malpractice lawyers want to remind people considering a plastic surgery procedure that there are always risks involved with any type of surgery.

Jennifer Esposito, 39, a New York City high-society hostess claims to have been "seriously injured" by a cosmetic procedure because a laser treatment designed to even her skin tone permanently burned red stripes on her face, gaining the attention of medical malpractice lawyers.

Esposito believes that these marks will permanently diminish her social standing and her success in New York, as reported in the New York Post.

New York medical malpractice lawyers define cosmetic surgery as any surgical procedure performed for the purpose of changing appearance. When most people think of cosmetic surgery, they imagine Hollywood glamour. However, cosmetic surgery is true to its name.

"Cosmetic surgery is surgery and there exists a very serious, dangerous side to these cosmetic procedures. In a percentage of cosmetic surgeries, mistakes and negligence does occur," said David Perecman, a New York medical malpractice lawyer.

If you experience a cosmetic surgery error in New York, a medical malpractice lawyer is your best bet to help you receive the compensation you deserve," added Perecman.
