People pay for plastic surgery, and if you are planning to get it, be reminded that you are as much as a doctor’s patient as you are a consumer. As a customer you are empowered to get your money’s worth and this is true with surgery too. You wouldn’t hesitate to ask a waiter to give you what you ordered if he delivers the wrong item to your table and you would ask a contractor to redo something if a repair job is done sloppily.
However, when something goes wrong with an operation, it is your health that is put at risk and in the case of plastic surgery, your physical attributes are also at stake. While it’s true that you are most likely not satisfied with your appearance in the first place, a botched plastic surgery will most likely make you look unsightly.
This is why many Americans opt to have procedures done in Mexico, where they can get the services of top plastic surgeons whose U.S.-based counterparts charge for double the price or even more. Some Americans might have reservations about the expertise of surgeons across the border, but the truth is that there are just as many reliable surgeons there are as there are here.
To ensure that your Mexico-based surgeon is the real deal, do some research prior to crossing San Diego or San Antonio for an appointment.
