Elective plastic surgery procedures have a reputation as being difficult cases but understand this - a patient never elects or consents to a surgeon's malpractice. If that is what happened to you (and ideally you have a second opinion to back this up), the statute of limitations is 2 1/2 years from the date of surgery. You really ought to remove your personal information from here. All you can do is try to find a NY lawyer to look at the case - you will need your surgery records and photos. I wish you the best of luck.
