NJ woman awarded $115K in eyelid malpractice suit



A jury awarded a Bloomingdale, NJ woman $115,000 Wednesday in her medical malpractice suit against a Paramus, NJ plastic surgeon who performed cosmetic surgery that left her unable to shut her eyes or blink. It was a mixed decision, as jurors found that Paul Parker, MD, did deviate from the accepted standard of care in performing the surgery to correct droopiness in the eyelids—called a blepharoplasty—on Marilyn Leisz and that this caused her injury. The panel, however, rejected Leisz?s other civil allegation that she was not fully advised as to the risk of incomplete eye closure as a possible consequence that comes with undergoing a blepharoplasty.
