Seeking at least $200,000 in damages, a Tarrant County mother is suing the doctor who performed liposuction on her last year, according to WFAA News. 31-year-old Tracy Burton, a mother of three, went to Dr. Pramesh Dave in hopes of slimming down her thighs. Despite specializing in internal medicine, Burton alleges Dave assured her that he could perform liposuction to achieve the desired results. After the $2,000 procedure, Burton’s legs became misshaped and lumpy. She sought the opinion of a plastic surgeon, who claimed that the liposuction performed was extremely aggressive, and the damage to Burton’s legs could not be repaired. Burton has also filed a formal complaint with the Texas Medical Board.
