Deal or No Deal?
Everyone loves a deal. The success of Groupon validates this phrase. When it comes to Cosmetic Surgery, getting a “deal” may end up being a bad deal. Dr. Michael Devlin has 18 years experience in Facial Cosmetic Surgery. He launched his private practice, Devlin Cosmetic Surgery, in 2010. Superior results and high patient satisfaction, reflected by his reviews on RateMds.com have positioned Dr. Devlin as a top Cosmetic Surgeon in Arkansas.
So what’s the deal with cost? I would say that most people do a fair amount of “price shopping” when selecting a surgeon for their cosmetic needs. Patients will often tell us they have had several consultations before making their final choice. Price often becomes a deciding factor.
The best explanation for the cost of his surgical procedures comes from Dr. Devlin himself in the following quote:
“People seek out my services because of my experience in the Cosmetic Surgery field. When you look at costs, I may not be the cheapest in town, but what I can offer, money cannot buy. I offer a very aesthetic, individualized, well thought out treatment plan. I hand selected my Christian staff members who go above and beyond to make sure your experience is a positive one. I have a reputation for consistent quality results as reflected in by before and after photos. I will not take shortcuts, nor do I tolerate substandard work. I set the bar high for myself.”
Cosmetic Surgery is highly individualized – Meaning the same surgical plan should not be a “blue plate special. First and foremost it should be about what bothers YOU the most. In Cosmetic Surgery, like in many fields, you get what you pay for. Don’t just look at price... take into account the surgeon’s education, before and after photos AND how he or she listens to you and explains your individualized care plan. You may pay a little more, but it turns into a very good deal when your results are priceless.
