Consumers looking to cut costs during the economic downturn cannot afford to cut corners on quality of care, warns the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). While it's one thing to temporarily substitute fillers for facelifts, Dr Speron says the worst thing patients can do is to put price before professional training.

The search for the cheapest prices may impact safety, and patients should proceed carefully before putting their body in the hands of just anyone

Consumers looking to cut costs during the economic downturn cannot afford to cut corners on quality of care, warns the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). While it's one thing to temporarily substitute fillers for facelifts, Dr Speron says the worst thing patients can do is to put price before professional training.

"The search for the cheapest prices may impact safety, and patients should proceed carefully before putting their body in the hands of just anyone", says Dr. Sam Speron, plastic surgery expert and consumer advocate. "Patients need to be armed with the right questions to ask rather than being influenced by marketing campaigns when making important health decisions. No one is more qualified than ASPS and ASAPS Member Surgeons to perform the full range of cosmetic breast procedures, and patients can avoid costly mistakes by doing their homework."

Some questions to ask your Chicago Breast Augmentation plastic surgeon:

  •     Are you an ASPS Member Surgeon?
  •     Are you an ASAPS Member Surgeon?
  •     Where and how will my procedure be done?
  •     Who will be performing the procedure?
  •     What are the qualifications of any other medical personnel involved?
  •     How many of the procedures have you (they) done?
  •     What can I expect from the procedure?
  •     Can I see before-and-after photos that illustrate the procedure?
  •     What are the risks and complications?
  •     What is the recovery time?
  •     How long can I expect the results to last?
  •     Are there alternative procedures I could consider?

Some questions to ask yourself about Chicago Breast Augmentation :

  •     Am I basing my decision on credentials of the medical professional and not the price?
  •     Does this sound too good to be true (if so, it probably is)?
  •     What do I expect from my procedure?
  •     Are my expectations for results actually realistic?
  •     Have all my questions been answered?
  •     Do I feel comfortable with the whole situation?

Dr Speron says you can still save money by having non-invasive procedures, but you should never swap quality care for cost. ASPS and ASAPS Member Surgeons put safety and outcome satisfaction first.

Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of the Park Ridge Center for Plastic Surgery. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).
