Dr. Wigoda Shares Plastic Surgery Pricing Report

Plastic surgery pricing can be deceiving.” says Dr. Paul Wigoda. The cheapest plastic surgery is never the best and the most expensive plastic surgery might not be worth it. When it comes to picking a qualified plastic surgeon, Dr. Wigoda recommends not focusing solely on price. Do your research to make sure your provider has an outstanding safety record and that former patients have had positive experiences and outcomes at your chosen clinic. “Patients who make the mistake of choosing solely based on price, have found out the hard way that they may have to either live with a lousy result, or end up spending significantly more to get fixed. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to get as good a result the second time around compared to doing it right the first time. In addition, the patient has to deal with another recovery period and more time off of work, which means more money lost. One other thing to consider, is that with a quick recovery such as with my painless breast implant procedure, getting back to work sooner is a way of saving more money and should be considered when comparing prices”.

If you’ve tried to research plastic surgery pricing information you know it can be challenging Google reports that of the millions of searches regarding plastic surgery each year more than 10% seek pricing and cost information. Many physician’s website’s can be deceiving and not contain all the facts. Calling a plastic surgeon’s office is generally not much more helpful.  Without a live consultation, many doctors refuse to disclose even ballpark estimates.

“It is our goal is to offer the best service available and give our patients the best value in South Florida,” says Dr. Wigoda. “Although our prices are very competitive, we do not try to compete with plastic surgery “factories” that advertise deceptively low prices and offer gimmicks to lure innocent patients into their centers. Our intent is not to be the cheapest. Our priority is first and foremost patient safety, followed by the best possible cosmetic result and the patient experience including using revolutionary techniques to minimize pain and discomfort.”

[UPDATED] All I want for Christmas is … plastic surgery from Dr. Wigoda

‘Tis the season for giving, and this holiday season men and women are stuffing their stockings with gift certificates for plastic surgery procedures and cosmetic treatments. This new trend in gift-giving makes Botox and Juvederm injections, breast implants and tummy tucks hot numbers on 2016’s holiday wish list. Therefore, we are upon a busy time not just for Old Saint Nick, but also for plastic surgeons like Fort Lauderdale-based Dr. Paul Wigoda.

Here’s a stocking full of Santa’s Checklist:

For Her

  • O-Shot: Enhance sexual satisfaction and get a rejuvenated look around the skin on the vulva (lips of the vagina)
  • Breast Augmentation: Boost your chest to look your best. Did we mention it’s painless?
  • Face Lifts: Look and feel young as another year goes by
  • Tummy Tuck: Flat and firm frame following childbirth or weight gain
  • Fillers: Wrinkle-free New Year’s Resolution

 

For Him

People are more willing to make large purchases on gifts during the holidays rather than a birthday or Mother’s or Father’s Day, according to doctors and gift-givers. Plastic surgery procedures are ideal during the holidays because many people have time off of work to undergo treatments and recuperate.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery strongly suggests that people who accept cosmetic procedures as generous holiday presents are having them done for themselves and not because they were given as a gift from a loved one or friend. It pays to look and feel young and refreshed, so the holidays are perfect for spouses to rejuvenate their look and their love for one another. However, this gift shouldn’t come as a surprise out of the blue – spouses should discuss and be on the same page, so it doesn’t send a wrong message.

“The gift has to be self-motivated and not because the partner is interested,” said Dr. Paul Wigoda, a plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, who contributed to a Sun Sentinel article.

So Dr. Wigoda might not see lines at midnight on Black Friday or husbands and wives scooping up treatments on Cyber Monday, but the holidays are upon us, and plastic surgery can only help impact some action under the mistletoe.
