1. Breast lift&Brachioplasty done on December 13, 2013: a. Based on Claimantu2019s witness, Strax did not inform Claimant of failed surgeries& continuing sagging breasts after breast lift surgery. Strax did not allow Claimant to read consent forms. Strax still has not provided following medical records to Claimant: 1. Dr. Zeichneru2019s dictated MEDICAL INFORMATION/ measurements needed in PATIENTu2019S CHART to Daniella Ramirez (non-medical financial counselor/SALESMAN) proving STRAX did not keep accurate medical records. 2. Medical record from March 20, 2014, when Dr. Zeichner injecting entire syringe of steroids in Claimantu2019s Right upper arm. b. Strax Rejuvenation care of Dr. Erogul measurements/prescriptions from December 5, 2013-Dec 12, 2013. Dr. Erogulu2019s measurements were 26cm on right breast &27cm left breast which means that left breast needed to be lifted more than right breast. Claimantu2019s alleges that from Dec 5-Dec 13, Dr. Zeichner did not review Dr. Erogulu2019s measurements or review Dr. Zeichneru2019s own MEDICAL INFORMATION/ measurements dictated to Daniella Ramirez (non-medical financial counselor/SALESMAN). (count 1) c. Strax Rejuvenation care of Dr. Zeichner from December 13, 2103-steroid injections on March 20, 2014 d. Claimant purposefully SCHEDULED TO HAVE SURGERY AT 9am at Surgery Center of Broward December 13, 2013 but it was from 11:30am-5pm e. Dr. Zeichner did not mark back of left arm straight across causing Claimant to have deformed left arm. Only fat grafting can be performed by 2 plastic surgeons. (count 4) f. Dr. Zeichner marked right breast with a higher mark for higher areola but did not mark left breast with a small higher mark so areola would be same as higher right breast. (count 2) If Dr. Erogulu2019s measurments & Dr. Zeichneru2019s dictated measurements to Daniella Ramirez not a REGISTERED NURSE(which HAVE BEEN LOST OT PROVIDED BY STRAX)( show that left breast was larger, then Dr. Zeichner should have taken more skin from below left breast than right breast. Dr. Zeichner did not use the skill&diligence a plastic surgeon with his experience should have used in surgery on Claimant. DR. ZEICHNERu2019S MISSING STITCHES LEAVING 2 HUGE HOLES IN Claimantu2019s LEFT BREAST. Surgical records state that Dr. Zeichner started on right arm/breast &did left arm/breast. Claimant alleges that he used less care on left side than right. (count 7) g. Strax did not allow ADEQUATE patient-surgeon communication. Dr. Zeichner asked Claimant RIGHT IN PREOP CURTAINED CUBICAL (WHICH SHOWS THAT CLAIMANT & DR. had not discussed anything before the breast lift surgery) if she wanted a breast reduction. Claimant said no because: she didnu2019t know if Strax Rejuvenation would charge me extra for breast reduction, she didnu2019t know how much the breast would be reduced, she HAD NEVER DISCUSSED A BREAST REDUCTION AT ALL BEFORE SURGERY or if Dr. Zeichner would have done it as part of breast lift surgery. h. Dr. Ziechner CUT ARM PITS WHEN CLAIMANT SPECIFICALLY TOLD DR. ZEICHNER NOT TO CUT ARM PITS When Dr. Zeichner did not answer, Claimant assumed that he would not cut into her arm pits. Dr. Ziechner left 2 LARGE TUCKS OF SKIN tucks under right arm. Claimant has (seen by Dermatologist) INGROWN SKIN IN RIGHT ARM PIT. (count 5) i. u201cWhen performing Liposuction on a patientu2019s arms, several items should have been considered. Postoperative anti-inflammatory drugs such as Cox 2 Inhibiters may be given for 5-7 days; specialized compression garments, binders, and tape help to reduce bruising, hematomas, seromas, &pain. Generally, compression is recommended for 2 weeks.u201d (count 6) j. Dr. Zeichner injected only right arm with entire syringe of steroids on March 20, 2014. Claimantu2019s 1/8u201d thin red scar widened to u00bd u201c&atrophy of skin& muscle BECAUSE TOO MUCH steroid was injected in Claimantu2019s right arm. u201cInitial steroid dosage should be .1 mL is injected per sq cm of involved skinu201d. u201cWide scars need to be surgically revised, Raised scars I recommend topical silicone gel strips, Red Scars can be lightened using IPL or bleaching creamsu201d. (count 8) k. Based on Claimantu2019s review of medical records&her witness of Dr. Zeichneru2019s care, it is Claimantu2019s opinion within a reasonable degree of medical probability, reasonable grounds exist to initiate a medical negligence claim against Dr. Zeichner &Strax Rejuvenation for breach of standard of care CAUSING patient to have to undergo all risks associated with breast revision surgery/scar revision/fat grafting to left arm.
