There has been a considerable increase in the amount of procedures such as Botox, Fillers, Rhinoplasty, and breast augmentation provided by companies such as Groupon and other discounted venues. I have always felt that you get what you pay for and although these offers may seem alluring and affordable, as a patient, you must be discerning in obtaining your cosmetic care. It’s important to know who will be providing your care when purchasing these discounted rates and their background.
Patients should insist on assuring their treatment will be carried out by someone certified in that specialty and in the proper setting. Board certified facial plastic or plastic surgeons should be performing your plastic surgery and injectors with plenty of experience can administer these treatments.
