Many people who want to improve their appearance, self-esteem and confidence turn to cosmetic surgery to help them reach their goals. At Christopher Craft Cosmetic Surgery, we applaud anyone who makes an investment in looking and feeling their best! Unfortunately, in an attempt to save money, some people decide to trust their looks, health and lives to those who are not licensed to perform surgical procedures. You may be surprised to learn that these “cheap” operations often end up costing the most money in the long run.
Poorly performed procedures can cause severe physical irregularities and deformities, requiring extensive additional plastic surgery, which may not even be able to fully fix the damage. Some reputable cosmetic surgeons are reporting a dramatic spike in the number of patients who are seeking corrective operations for botched jobs from unlicensed operations. One such patient reportedly received “cheap” liposuction in the Dominican Republic, and the results were so bad that lumps and bumps were visible through her clothes.
If you are considering getting cosmetic surgery, you should only work with a reputable, experienced plastic surgeon who is certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Other physicians may be “board certified” in another specialty, such as dermatology or gynecology, but that does not mean that they have the appropriate qualifications to perform cosmetic operations. You can check to see if a particular doctor is ABPS certified here.
