Lower Priced Surgeries Might Not Give Quality Results
Liposuction is one of the most popular surgical beauty treatments with more than a quarter of a million procedures performed annually on both women and men. It is the only long term proven way to re-sculpt the body in just one procedure; it can eliminate unwanted body fat and give you shape and curves you may have lost with weight gain or never had before because they were hiding underneath fat. The technique is considered permanent because the fat cells that are removed can never re-grow. However, good results you’ll be happy with are contingent on the experience of your aesthetic physician. You cannot replace the experience of the surgeon who has done thousands of these types of procedures with great results. To be truly confident in your surgeon’s ability to give you a great result, that surgeon should have completed at least 100 Liposuction cases to really be comfortable with this skill-driven procedure.
The cost of Liposuction is an important factor when considering liposuction surgery. However the QUALITY of liposuction is more important than the liposuction cost. If the ultimate goal of liposuction is to have a happy patient, then the surgeon’s expertise and experience are probably more important than the liposuction surgery price. Liposuction prices are important, but it is not the most important factor to considering lipo surgery. Be careful not to put your body on the “Discount / Special Rate Rack”. Sometimes a lower priced surgery might end up costing more if the initial low cost results are so bad that they require another surgeon to repair the work of the first surgeon.
How to Choose A Surgeon
Choosing a medical professional qualified in the particular surgery or procedure you desire can be overwhelming. Before making your decision, consider the following:
Experience – Ask how much experience the doctor has in performing the procedure you are seeking. Also, ask to review “before and after” photos (from procedures he or she has actually performed).
Social Proof– Does the physical have several patient video and written testimonials? Has the physician been been featured in news-worthy media segments because of their expertise?
Communication– Ask questions of your physician and se how he or she responds. If they ignore or dismiss your questions, that’s a red flag that they are not listening to you or don’t want to respond. It’s crucial you communicate your expectations to the doctor so you get the results you’re expecting and paying for.
Preparation – Does your physician offer a pre-operative appointment where you have a chance to review pre-op forms and receive appropriate procedural instructions? Be sure you fully understand what is involved.
Location – Is the physician’s surgical suite updated, clean and organized with the latest equipment and does it offer you privacy so you can enter and leave discreetly if desired?
Credentials: Is the physician recognized by the Medical Board of California? Is their medical license current? Are they in good standing?
