With the job market shrinking and the economy in crisis, should people be considering plastic surgery to enhance their appearance?
Interestingly enough, there has never been a better time to find a bargain for plastic surgery. For the first time ever, patients are negotiating deals, comparison shopping and price matching their surgical procedures. At the same time, doctors are slashing their prices, and open schedules and competitive rates are allowing patients flexibility and savings. Surgeons aren’t the only ones offering great deals. Juvederm© and Botox® are offering promotions, anesthesiologists are bringing prices down and operating room costs are decreasing.
With discounted services, however, comes a higher need to research a surgeon’s quality and expertise. Now more than ever, patients must be careful when searching for the most qualified surgeon at the best price. As with any medical procedure, trust, compassion and expertise are more important than price when finding the right doctor.
Keeping the importance of a board certified and expert surgeon in mind, patients have the opportunity to take advantage of great deals during these tough times that can enhance their appearance and boost self confidence.
