THE DANGERS OF BARGAIN BASEMENT PLASTIC SURGERYPublished on February 26, 2013 by George Moynihan
Everybody loves a bargain, and the garage sale industry is booming. Second-hand shops and dollar stores can be found everywhere, and we all flock to them to see what bargains we can find. Sometimes we come out with a gem. Not so with plastic surgery!
Cheap Plastic Surgery is No Bargain
In recent years, and in particular as the economy has suffered, more and more doctors who are not board certified in plastic surgery have begun to offer and perform lucrative cosmetic surgery procedures. This can be a dangerous practice. Furthermore, spas and beauty salons are now offering many non-invasive procedures like chemical peels, dermabrasion and laser resurfacing, that really are best left to the experts. When it is your face that is getting worked on, it is essential that you find a highly qualified and experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon to do your procedure, even if it costs a bit more.
Fine Wine and Gourmet Meals
Many of us are more than willing to shell out a bit more for a fancy dinner, a fine wine or a nice cashmere throw, so why bargain when it comes to your face and your health? It’s true, the best often comes with a higher price tag, but many physicians offer payment plans and financing to make it easier. A bad meal might stay with you for a night, but bad facial plastic surgery lasts a lifetime.
Dangers of Cheap Plastic Surgery
There are many dangers of choosing bargain-basement plastic surgery. You risk dissatisfaction, scarring, disfigurement, your health and even your life. Furthermore, the additional cost of having to revise poor results will likely add up to be more expensive in the long run.
Don’t be a victim of low-cost surgery centers. Do your homework and find a highly qualified and experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon to perform your procedure. To learn more, contact Dr. George Moynihan of Chicago’s Gold Coast Plastic Surgery for a consultation at 312-988-9300.
