Plastic surgeon warned on aftercare

The health care discipline board has given a formal warning to plastic surgeon Martin J. for failing to provide adequate aftercare to a patient who underwent a ‘body lift’.

The 37-year-old woman died from an infection two days after surgery following complaints of very severe pains. The surgeon, who was on holiday, told her the pains were normal.
