Can I sue for the cost of a breast augmentation following a faulty reduction?

Question Details: About 2 months ago, I received a breast reduction through my insurance company. Following healing of the surgery, I reported to my surgeon multiple times something was wrong with my right breast. It didn't feel right and didn't look right; it was with much more swollen. She ignored all of my requests to get treatment besides giving me an antibiotic which she took me off of early. She refused to help me in anyway. I had to go to the doctor on my own volition and get an ultrasound and found a hematoma. I had it drained at a specialist's office, 100 ml of blood. It has a deformed my breast and it is now very odd shaped. I'm wondering if I can sue for money for a breast augmentation to fix my breast because my surgeon was ignoring all of my requests for treatment and I had to seek medical help on my own.
