Buyer Beware: The High Cost of a Cheap Treatment

RPS-_blog_photo_injectableEveryone likes a good deal. From flash-sales to online offerings, a low price can be tempting. While most of the time, a deal proves itself a great steal, when it comes to plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures, these so-called “deals” should be avoided. As the saying says, if it seems too good to be true, it most likely is.

Who is providing the service?

Nothing is more paramount to the success of your results than your choice of surgeon. It is unwise to choose your surgeon based on price alone. Experience, training, and certification have a cost—and, quality costs more. You don’t want the lowest price; you want the highest level of skill.

Physician & Patient: A Mutual Relationship Your initial consultation is an important step. The consultation gives you and your surgeon a time to establish a relationship as well.  Describing a typical consult, Dr. Mills says, “When I first meet with a patient, I review their medical history to be sure that they are a candidate for surgery. This includes prior surgeries, medical issues, medications, allergies to medications, smoking history, history of breast cancer in the patient or their family members, etc. We then talk at great length about the procedure and different options.”

The consultation gives you time to establish an understanding of your forthcoming procedure. In an attempt to cut costs, clinics will forgo the consultation. When purchasing a deal online, it is common for you to not meet the surgeon prior to your procedure.


How are they able to cut the cost?

Consider how the practice is able to cut costs. Where or how are they cutting costs to provide you with such a great deal? Running a clean, safe, and certified practice is often reflected in the price of your procedure, as is the experience of your surgeon and the necessary surgical team.

Take for instance injectable treatments. To reduce their costs, a practitioner may further dilute a product like Botox by adding extra saline. Improperly mixed, it is more likely the Botox will spread to neighboring areas. Your results are compromised and can make your face appear droopy and asymmetrical for the four to six months that Botox lasts.

Did You Know? The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) prohibits its members from giving plastic surgery away as a prize.

Low Cost, High Risk

Correcting unsatisfactory results proves not only tedious but also expensive. The inherent risks extend far beyond the wallet. Plastic surgery is surgery. When choosing a surgeon based on price alone, you risk infection, prolonged swelling, and scarring.

We want to make your plastic surgery dream possible. At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we understand that plastic surgery can be expensive. In hopes of helping you, we offer financing. Many of our patients find that financing is a feasible way to get the highest quality of surgery available. A good deal is not worth jeopardizing the success of your surgery.
