Seven malpractice suits for cosmetic surgeries
An Omaha doctor and his cosmetic surgery clinic face malpractice lawsuits filed by seven patients.
Doctor Gerard Stanley Jr. and Sculpt Contemporary Cosmetic Surgery LLC are named in the suits.
Seven women claim they suffered painful scarring and disfigurement after procedures, including breast augmentation, tummy tucks and eye lifts.
Omaha attorney James Martin Davis filed the suits claiming the patients suffered physical and emotional pain. Davis said, "It was an emotional event to go in and see the doctor to begin with, to share and say 'I have these problems and I want you to correct them.' They're alleging that he not just failed to correct them, he made the problems worse."
The lawsuits filed by the following patients and one spouse:
Michelle West & Ricky West
Mary J. Caughlin-Smaus
A representative for Doctor Stanley said, "We believe Dr. Stanley and Sculpt Cosmetic Surgery provided excellent care to these patients. Through the court system everyone at Sculpt Cosmetic Surgery will be vindicated.”
