Generally speaking, unsatisfactory results of a surgery or another medical procedure do not, in and of themselves, constitute malpractice. Also,if an injury is considered to have resulted from the ordinary risk associated with the procedure you have chose to undergo, it will not be considered medical negligence.
However, before you give informed consent in writing to any medical procedure, your physician should have disclosed the risks involved, as well as the relative chances of success or failure.
