Can I ask the clinic to stop payments after advice given causing a snowball effect of complications? (Photos)

Post Op Complications
I'm sorry to hear about your difficulty. The consent documents you would have signed outlining risks and considerations for your procedures, as well as your Plastic Surgeon's financial policies will have to be reviewed. Each practice and each patient is different.
All the best
Unfortunately post-op complications can happen and should have been discussed and reviewed as part of the informed consent process. Typically revision surgery costs are also discussed up front by most surgeon(who will be responsible for what costs). Always best to start with your surgeon(s), then if they are not willing to help you consulting with additional surgeons for future work needed would be your choice.

I would suggest a second opinion might be a worthwhile undertaking at this stage. It doesn't make much sense to me that the girdle could have caused this.
