Deborah Longtin v. Plastic Surgeon
In March, 2014 Karen Butler obtained a defense verdict before an Albany County jury. Ms. Butler successfully defended a plastic surgeon who had used a filler, Sculptra, in the malar areas. The patient developed granulomas. Another physician attempted to remove the granulomas. The patient thereafter developed an infection which progressed to osteomyelitis. The plaintiff claimed to be permanently disabled due to vision problems, headaches and other issues.
