Dr. Jen Armstrong Faced a Lawsuit
One of the common things plastic surgeons share is the consequence of letting down a patient. And, Jennifer Armstrong wasn’t an exception, when a former patient named Judy Hecht filed a civil lawsuit against the doctor and her medical center.
The legal document states that Jennifer misdiagnosed Judy Hecht’s condition leading to the accusations of “medical negligence, battery, and failure to obtain informed consent.”
Jennifer and Judy initially met in 2019 when Judy wanted to get filler treatment for her cheeks.
“Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that as a result of the manner and method by which Defendants performed the Exilis treatment, her previously infected fillers below the surface of her skin melted, causing issues that needed correction and deformity in her face.” - Statement from the lawsuit
Judy didn’t obtain the results she wanted even after several visits to Jennifer, so she went to another doctor who fixed the issue. That was when Judy filed the lawsuit to get her money back. Reports say that the case is still ongoing.
