The Dangers of Choosing "Quick" and "Cheap" Plastic Surgery
For many Americans looking to make the most of this tough economy, the right choice has ultimately become the most affordable choice. In most cases, it’s a solid line of thinking – generic bread over name brand, discount groups to save on dining, and other ways to get by with a smaller budget. However, there are some places where cutting cost should not be a factor, such as plastic surgery. If your low-cost plastic surgery goes awry, then the emotional and financial cost to repair it may exceed any amount of “expensive” plastic surgery you would have chosen. [Videos after the Break] Miami Beach resident Elsie Soto was tired of watching beautifully tone women strut their stuff around her popular beach town. The 32-year-old went to three plastic surgeons before choosing one based solely on cost. Strax Rejuvenation and Aesthetics Institutes charged $5,000 where other surgery centers quoted anywhere between $10,000 to $12,000. After her liposuction and fat transfer surgery, Soto was unable to move her legs. Instead of sending her to a hospital, a nurse took Soto to her own home. Soto says she has no memory of being taken to the hospital two days later — on her mother's insistence — and needed two blood transfusions when she got there. That was just the beginning. After almost $50,000 in medical bills (including nearly $40,000 for her hospital stay) that insurance won't cover because the procedure was elective, three months out of work and continued pain down her left leg, Soto now says low-cost, high-volume cosmetic surgery clinics are not the way to go.
