Cosmetic surgery costs money and the price can vary greatly depending on the procedure and who performs it. It can be an investment in yourself, as long as you get the results that you want. On the other hand, you can’t afford to put your health and safety at risk trying to get a deal. Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between saving money and safety. Here are 4 ways you can save on your next cosmetic surgery procedures without sacrificing comfort or safety.
Ask About Specials
Don’t try to save money by going to a second-rate surgeon. This is a sure recipe for disaster and you might end up having the procedure corrected by another doctor. In some cases, the damage could be irreversible, so don’t risk it.
Instead, try to take advantage of special offers. Many great cosmetic surgeons offer discounts and specials. They may do this to attract new clients or allow those with financial constraints access to their services. Or, they may offer discounts during the summer since this is their slow season.
On the flip side, the busiest time in the cosmetic surgeon’s office is the winter holidays. Some people may want to hide their bandages under winter clothes and take advantage of their accumulated leave. This is why you should try to avoid this time at all costs if possible.
If the surgeon you want to use isn’t advertising specials, sign up for their newsletter to find out when they are offering discounts on certain procedures. You should also try to sign up for deal sites as many surgeons use them to attract clientele. Another option would be to look at their social media pages. Many will offer deals to their followers, and some might be time-limited. So, it would be wise to stay updated and follow them so you don’t miss deals.
Another thing you could do is attend special events at cosmetic surgery practices. They may let you try out their new skin treatment for free, give away coupons for free services to attendees or let you pick up free samples. This is also an opportunity to have a free or discounted consultation with an expert.
If you’re a regular customer, research the rewards programs offered by various aesthetic product manufacturers. For example, you could earn points or see rebates for every injection. Many will have some sort of loyalty program, so don’t be afraid to ask. Either way, always know that you can negotiate, even more so with someone you’re familiar with.
If liposuction UK is too expensive, you can always look at medical tourism. There are many places where they have doctors just as good as at home, but for a fraction of the cost. You don’t have to travel to the other end of the world either; you have destinations right next door that have great facilities and world-class doctors.
Countries like Turkey, for instance, are a great option. They offer world-class facilities and welcome more than 100,000 medical tourists a year. They attract medical tourists mainly because their dentists and cosmetic surgeons cost much less than medical services would cost in their home countries, but are just as good, if not better, in many cases.
Not to mention that it’s only a 4-hour flight from the UK and you could find a doctor that will meet you back home to brief you and get you prepared, like Baris Yigit for instance. This liposuction provider has offices in both Fethiye, Turkey, and London, UK. He will be able to prepare you on what you can expect and his website is a great place to learn more about the procedure.
After all, why get a liposuction UK when “you can have your surgery in Fethiye where the sun and the sea are dancing as if they are in heaven?” Medical tourism is a perfect chance to transform your procedure into a holiday, and countries like Turkey also offer the opportunity to stay at a low cost while recovering.
Bundling procedures means that several different cosmetic procedures are performed at the same time in the operating room. This will allow you to save money on the procedure since you only have to pay the anaesthesiologist and operating room fee once. It also has the benefit of reducing your overall recovery time.
For example, some clinics will offer ‘mummy makeovers’ that combine a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast enhancement in a single operation. You’ll recover from the entire makeover in two weeks. If you have these procedures done separately, you will have to pay the operating room fees three times. You’d also need around 4 weeks to recover.
Ask About Financing Options
Always enquire about free consultations and complementary treatments before you assume you have to pay for it. Many cosmetic surgeons offer finance options. If you bring up concerns about cost, they may be able to recommend similar, affordable procedures to achieve the same result. If you’re buying beauty products, ask if you can save money by buying them in bulk.
Whether you want liposuction or a tummy tuck, there are several ways to save money from the initial consultation to cosmetic surgery. Then the ‘new you’ you’ve always wanted is within reach.
