5 Ways to Get the Plastic Surgery That You Want
Date:4/7/2008

For the Price You are Willing to Pay

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Cosmetic plastic surgery is a luxury in the best or worst of times. "Make no mistake about it people will always want to improve their appearance with cosmetic surgery "says Angela Segal, independent patient consultant for individuals seeking cosmetic surgery. "People need to know how to cut through the fluff and get the best value for the investment they are making in themselves."

As an independent consultant, Ms. Segal works exclusively for the patient. Her popular website http://www.AngelaSegal.com helps patients navigate the plastic surgeon selection process. Segal, a former 12 year veteran patient consultant and administrator, provides a unique approach from the "inside" on how to determine the best procedures for the best prices.

Ms. Segal contends there are 5 basic ways to help patients reach their plastic surgery goals:

1. Don't fall in love with the surgeon. The personality of the surgeon is of slight importance but remember you are paying the surgeon for surgery. You will be asleep when the surgeon performs the service that you are paying for. Obviously if the surgeon is rude or arrogant that is unacceptable. The best indicator is the longevity and attitude of the staff. Remember, the surgeon pays them to be there. If they are not happy you probably will not be happy either.

2. Be honest about what you bring to the table. It's a hard truth; but price negotiation in elective plastic surgery always comes down to the risk for complications and how long the surgery takes to perform. Time is money.

3. Be firm but likable. Forcing the surgeon into accepting your price can backfire, especially if the practice dreads your every contact. The goal is to be fair and get the best value. Never forget that the relationship should be a partnership.

4. Learn to compare fees by procedure, surgery time, facility and supplies used. This can be tricky because sometimes these points are not clearly written on the quote. A shifting of fees can leave a patient believing they have a better deal than they really have. Don't be afraid to ask for the information that you need to compare fees if it is not present on the quote.

5. Pay for your consultation. Paying for your consultation with the surgeon proves to the surgeon that you are serious. A veterinarian does not give free consultations. It is ridiculous to expect a medical doctor with surgical experience to perform a medical evaluation for free. Ask questions specifically related to you and what the recommendations are. You are making a decision based on your desires, what the surgeon can achieve, and the best value.

Ms. Segal offers her consulting services on line, by phone, or in person.
