There is no question the economy changed the game for just about every single one of us out there. Most of us have cut back and reevaluated our spending habits. So, it comes as no surprise that patients want what they feel is the best “deal” on cosmetic surgery. While cosmetic surgery is fun and exciting, it is still surgery. Surgery must be treated with respect and taken with the utmost seriousness. Surgical fees aren’t just pulled out of the air and can be wheedled down in manner of a new car. For example, breast augmentation surgery uses implants. Implants cost us money, they aren’t free to surgeons. Implants can cost hundreds to even thousands of dollars. There are many more expenses that go into procedures that may not occur to the average patient. For example, many disposable items are used, surgical equipment, multiple staff members and a board certified physician to take care of you every step of the way. Dr. Hartog takes great care to be mindful of costs from our Orlando patients to our international patients. We have our own ACHA surgery center attached to The Bougainvillea Clinique that helps eliminate the costs associated with large hospital surgery centers. And we closely monitor inventories to help eliminate shortages which aide in keeping costs down.
You deserve the best and safest when it comes to your cosmetic surgery procedure. Sometimes in life you get what you pay for and when it comes to your body and well-being, it should be considered priceless.
