This case involves a female who underwent bilateral breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. While recovering from surgery in the hospital, the patient began to experience calf tenderness, fever, and chest pain. The patient underwent testing which confirmed the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism. The patient required lifelong anti-coagulation with warfarin and aspirin. The patient indicated that the surgical complication was never discussed with her. However, she does recall hearing some of the complications just prior to surgery but was unable to remember specifically because anesthesia was already being administered to her. She claimed that she would not have went through with the procedure if she was aware of the complication.
