When the economy lightens your bank account, it is common to look for good deals on many of the products you consume. This is a logical idea that will help you save money so that you will not have to eliminate too many luxuries from your lifestyle.
Frequently, bargain prices on facial fillers and injectables are an indication that you are either receiving a counterfeit or illegally imported product, or you are going to a surgeon who does not have the appropriate experience to perform your procedure.
There are no lower priced, generic alternatives to cosmetic fillers and injectables. Cosmetic surgeons do not receive bulk discounts for purchasing large quantities of these products, and it is almost impossible to purchase these products from a reputable distributor at a discount price. Therefore, cosmetic surgeons have very little room to pass a discount on to patients for injectable procedures.
By getting your filler treatment from a surgeon offering you a bargain rate, you run the following risks:
- Counterfeit or illegally imported fillers can cause serious health risks
- Diluted or poorly administered fillers can reduce the effectiveness of your treatment
- Unqualified surgeons performing your procedure may result in poor results and possibly increase your risk of health complications
Whenever you opt for cosmetic surgery, no matter how minor the procedure may be, it is important to go to a board certified plastic surgeon to ensure the greatest likelihood of successful results. You may pay a little more money, but in the end, it will be worth it. Your health is too important to risk on subpar doctors or treatments.
