A 27-year old woman underwent plastic surgical scar revision and liposuction, and was left with contour deformity.  Two years later, a plastic surgeon recommended she undergo suction-assisted liposuction and fat grafting, however, two days following that procedure she was admitted to the hospital complaining of severe abdominal pain.  A CT scan showed that her bowel was perforated in three places.  After a lengthy hospitalization and several subsequent surgical procedures, she has significant abdominal wall defect.  Hodes Milman Liebeck obtained a $500,000 settlement on behalf of the woman.
