The expression “shooting the messenger” took on new meaning when Strax Rejuvenation the high volume South Florida plastic surgery center we are suing on behalf of a number of patients and their families claiming to be victims of plastic surgery malpractice; filed its own lawsuit against NBC News and its famed reporter Williard Sheppard for libel.

Our Broward plastic and cosmetic surgery lawyers represent victims of botched procedures. One our our goals is to communicate the potential risks of plastic surgery while educating and empowering consumers to make informed decisions about the doctors and facilities they entrust their lives to. As a Florida hospital patent’s rights advocate I hope that this law suit does not deter the media from reporting cases like Lidvian Zelaya’s.
