Can I sue a cosmetic surgeon for failing to follow standard surgical practices resulting in severe functional impairment?
I have almost entirely lost my sense of smell, and therefore taste, as well as lost about 85% of the ability to breathe through my nose. I sneeze on average 30 times a day and am constantly congested. It's honestly ridiculous and impacts my day to day life, including work. There are also numerous cosmetic concerns, but my biggest concern is the functional issues as they impact quality of life.
The surgeon has suggested another operation with them; however, they want to put it through my insurance. They've even said that the insurance "won't know". It all just seems incredibly fishy to me and I'm curious if I have any legal recourse here.
