People considering a facelift
have been warned not to fall for special offers and cut-rate procedures that
could mean they do not get the result they were hoping for.
Dr James Romanelli and Dr Dana Khuthaila, from Romanelli
Cosmetic Surgery in Long Island, New York, have advised individuals to ensure
they always choose the best plastic surgeon they can afford, rather than going
for the cheapest option.
The experts claimed many surgery chains offer discounts to
attract people who may have otherwise been unsure about cosmetic procedures
because of the cost.
However, these kinds of offers should “raise a red flag”
among consumers, Dr Romanelli noted, as it can mean operations are done too
quickly, resulting in infections or complications.
“Do your research when selecting a surgeon. Look for someone
who is board-certified, who has consistently positive reviews and who is
focused on the safety of the procedure as well as the quality of your results,”
the expert continued.
Dr Khuthaila added that patients are trusting cosmetic
surgeons with their health as well as their appearance, so it is vital they
choose the right person.
