You may be able to do so if you can prove that the doctor's care was "below the standard of care" for doctors in the same specialty in the similar geographic area. This is the "negligence" standard in a Colorado medical malpractice case. You will require an "expert" (another plastic surgeon) to render an opinion (and testify if necessary) that the treating doctor's work fell below the standard of care, and was negligent, and that the negligence "caused" your injuries.
