Cheap plastic surgery comes with a high price

Everyone loves a bargain. But when it comes to investing in your appearance, you get what you pay for. Discounted surgery may seem too good to be true because it often is: What you save in dollars you lose in safety. To minimize your risk of complications, keep these pointers in mind:

  • Focus on quality, not cost. Good results and the boost of confidence that follow a successful surgery are priceless. Prioritizing surgeons based on their skills, expertise, and training will help ensure that you select a qualified doctor who can deliver the results you are looking for. Remember: Paying for revision surgery will negate any money you may have saved by going the bargain route.
  • Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon. Not all doctors are qualified to perform plastic surgery; however, any licensed general physician is legally allowed to do so. A board-certified plastic surgeon, on the other hand, has undergone extensive training in plastic surgery. Make sure he or she is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery before scheduling your consultation.
  • Scout your location. Where your surgery is performed is as important as who is performing it. Choose a surgeon who works in an accredited hospital or surgical suite. This ensures he or she operates under strict codes regarding sanitation, surgical equipment, and operating room safety. A surgeon with hospital privileges also has access to much needed medical equipment in the case of an emergency.
