View Full Version : Choosing a Plastic Surgeon

Did anyone struggle when weighing costs vs your favorite plastic surgeon?

My favorite so far (still at least a few consultations to go) is by far the most expensive. I can pay cash, but that's money that would go to pay for a down payment on a house someday.

My husband doesn't see the cost as a problem and of course I'm dealing with my body, so I want the best. But at what price?

I haven't had any surgery but in my opinion, you should choose the one you feel most comfortable with, even if it's more expensive. Peace of mind is important and your husband is so sweet to be so supportive. Houses come and go but you only get one body. That said, more expensive doesn't always mean better quality.

What are you having done?

What are you having done?

Probably tummy tuck and breast lift to start. Maybe arms too down the road.

I haven't had plastic surgery but with all things medical I think it's important to go with who you feel most comfortable with. More money can be saved over time but you won't want to go through another plastic surgery if something isn't right the first time. Good luck! Those are the same procedures that I've thought about too..

The most expensive is not always the best, but whichever doctor YOU think is best, I'd go with that one.
I had a breast augmentation after my weightloss. Interviewed docs and asked to friends who also had it done. Ended up going with the most expensive based upon recommendations, record, interview, etc. Totally worth it!

Just look at the extra cost as more of "insurance" against getting a botched surgery and having to do it again!!
