When it comes to your appearance, is bargaining really an option? Of course, buying makeup at the drugstore rather than at a makeup counter is not what I'm referring to. When it comes to your health and well being, bargaining is not an option I recommend. Many of my clients ask me for plastic surgeon referrals, filler and injection locations and more. My list includes world-renowned doctors - but in this economy some clients feel that price is more important than certifications, licenses and credibility.
I always tell my clients that they shouldn't compromise quality for a lower price when it comes to their face and body. It is very important they go to someone they've searched. They should like their preferred doctor's work, read referrals and testimonials - and should hesitate to ask about pre and post-surgery, recovery, possibly problems, benefits and alternatives.
Cosmetic and corrective tattooing, surgery, fillers and injectables are serious. We all desire to look our best; some of us prefer to accompany the process of agin with a little help from a great surgeon. Looking for the cheapest price isn't always the smartest option because you'll typically spend more trying to correct the unsatisfactory results of discounted fees. Researching the best option might take extra time, but in the end it can only help. When it comes to your face, body or heath there is no room for compromise.
