In an ideal world, we’d all be wearing designer labels, driving luxury cars, and getting our facelifts from top-rated NYC plastic surgeons like Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich. The reality, however, is that most of us ride the subway, we only buy designer clothes from thrift stores, and we have mortgages to pay, retirement savings to worry about, and many other bills that keep us from “living the dream,” so to speak. The average person is far more concerned with rent and groceries than they are with plastic surgery, but that doesn’t stop people from wanting to experience things they can’t easily afford. That’s why, when it comes to cosmetic procedures, there’s nothing wrong with finding the cheapest possible option, as long as it’s done responsibly.
Beware of Online Deals
The trend these days is for most people to scour sites like Groupon for anything that might offer a discount. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with Groupon if you’re using it for goods and services where a little disappointment might not be that big of an issue. By that we mean, if you buy something like dinner or a mani/pedi, and it doesn’t go as planned, at least it’s just one bad dinner, and your nails will grow back.
But if you buy something like a facelift, and the results aren’t exactly as you hoped for, it doesn’t matter how much money you just saved, because you are just not going to be happy. Then on top of that, if you decide to get the result that you want and have a second procedure done by another surgeon, you’ve now more than doubled your original cost. There’s a lot of good uses for discount aggregators, but high profile cosmetic procedures may not be the best example of it.
How do you find a facelift that fits your budget?
Now you might be thinking, “So what other options are there?” And we’re so glad you asked. According to Dr. Konstantin, the best approach to finding a price that fits your budget is to look for the cheapest of the best, not the best of the cheapest. This goes for basically all cosmetic procedures but especially something as important as a facelift. We’ve already written extensively on the benefits of finding a specialist when it comes to facial procedures.
Choose a Qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon
Most people would agree that an expert facial plastic surgeon is the only practitioner you want operating on you. But those doctors are expensive, and it makes sense that anyone would want to save as much as they reasonably can, so our advice here is to choose from a pool of the most qualified physicians available. That is, as opposed to choosing the most qualified from a pool of the cheapest physicians you could find. Both methods might yield similar price ranges, but the latter is a frequent cause for disappointment while the former ensures you’re receiving the highest quality service available for the most reasonable price.
So in conclusion, when looking to save money on cosmetic procedures, and facial rejuvenation especially
- Start by looking for the best, the most acclaimed and experienced specialists
- Then narrow your search down until you find a price that works for you.
The results of your facial rejuvenation procedure aren’t something to take a chance with. And it doesn’t matter how cheap it is, because if you’re unhappy with the results, it won’t be worth it.
That being said, finding the right plastic surgeon can make all the difference not just for your wallet, but for how you look for the next 10-15 years. We do believe in saving money; we just don’t believe savings should come at the expense of your looks!
