People are always looking for a good deal. However, when patients seek out discounted plastic surgery procedures, the results can be disastrous—potentially causing further health issues. The field of cosmetic and plastic surgery has competition that does not exist in the medical health care field due to a diverse price range and varying degrees of surgeon experience.
To ensure that you're getting what you're paying for, Dr. Garcia and his practice located in Las Vegas have gathered the information you need to know before opting for that low-price procedure.
Cheaper Doesn't Always Mean Better
Surgery, whether required, elective or cosmetic, is still surgery. The same goes for injectable fillers (Juvederm, Restylane), neurotoxins (BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport) as well as other minimally invasive procedures. The processes involved in these treatments are meticulous, and require years to properly train and build experience. However, by choosing the cheaper treatment option, you may be losing the desired experience from the surgical team performing the procedure. Be aware that some practices will reduce the price because they lack the proper knowledge, training or experience to deliver the results you want—always choose a board-certified surgeon for your procedure.
Patient Experience May Suffer
With every surgery, there is pre and post-operative care that must be followed to allow the patient to heal properly. To decrease the price, some part of the patient experience may be short-changed. The expenses that are usually included in a plastic surgery procedure such as post-operative garments, pre-operative blood work and even the choice of the best implant might be waived by the surgeon in order to offer that lower price. By seeking these cheaper treatments, you are ultimately sacrificing your personal patient experience, as well as putting your health and safety at risk. Be sure to always ask what's included in your treatment plan.
As appealing as it may be to find a lower price for your cosmetic procedure, our experienced team urges you to seek the right surgeon before seeking the "right price." Dr. Garcia, a board-certified plastic surgeon, wants to work with you and your budget to deliver the results you want to achieve. Conveniently located in Las Vegas, Dr. Garcia has years of experience with a variety of plastic and cosmetic procedures.
