A: You Question about suing for medical negligence or malpractice as you call it depend upon an opinion from a similar physician in same specialty who can conclude that the physician performing the lipo suction was negligent meaning his treatment frll below the piper standard of care.

As to the hospital not contacting your daughter there’s no harm or damage tissue for and I do not think that’s a matter of medical negligence
