I found this article interesting on how the demand for cosmetic surgery has consumers searching for bargains. Millions go under the knife each year to enhance their faces and bodies. In fact, 14.6 million cosmetic procedures were performed in 2012, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The cost of cosmetic procedures can vary widely. The cost tend to be higher when doctors are board-certified in plastic surgery. By the way, it is ideal to go to a surgeon who is board certified. So, what are the going rates; how can you safely save; and when is a bargain not really a bargain? This article gives you 5 tips to go by: 1. Get Ball park prices, by using “Healthcare Blue Book” 2.
