Before Cosmetic Procedures: Decision Making

It’s  tempting to buy a Groupon or Daily Deal for Botox, Laser Treatment or Fillers.

So you book an appointment, only to either have a bad experience or spend more money than you planned.

Now, I’m not saying that all Groupons and Daily Deals are misleading or that the doctor is inexperienced  in the field of aesthetic medicine.

However, keep in mind that a busy practice or medical spa does not need  to advertise in Groupon and Daily Deals.

Buyer Beware.

With the continued explosion of cosmetic treatments and surgery plus the declining rate of insurance reimbursements for medical doctors, more non-core specialty doctors will decide enter this very lucrative business. Before you consider cosmetic procedures answer these questions first.

1.What are my expectations? My aesthetic goals?
2.What is my budget for consultations and the procedure?
3.Do I have the time to do the research on doctors or do I need more guidance ?
4.How many consultations will I go to?

6.Does the procedure fit into my lifestyle?
7.Can I take the time I need to recover?
