USA Plastic Surgery, Dallas Fort Worth, Texas TX

If you are looking for a cosmetic plastic surgeon in America who has free consultations and low prices, then they are likely focused on high volume, which means fast surgery.  Can anyone do their best work in a hurry?  Are you comfortable taking the added risks of having surgery in a doctor’s office with a nurse doing your anesthesia?

Dr. Steven J White MD believes you’re worth it.  Don’t you?

Cost is the price you pay.

Should you choose your plastic surgeon based on costs?

USA Plastic Surgery, Dallas Fort Worth, Texas TX

Everyone knows how to shop for a car.  First, you look for the quality you want to invest in.  Then, decide on the car manufacturer and model you prefer … with a full understanding that luxury cars are more expensive than basic compact cars.  It is obvious to everyone that not all cars are the same.  The best cars costs more … for good reasons … they have the best quality, best design, best safety, and best amenities.

Strangely, when patients are looking for a cosmetic plastic surgeon, many tend to focus on finding the cheapest surgeon … with the mistaken idea that all plastic surgeons deliver the same results.  For some reason, many don’t realize that there can be a HUGE difference in results among different plastic surgeons for the ‘same’ procedure.

If one is purchasing a dishwasher, once you decide on the brand and model number, then the goal is to find the same dishwasher for the best price (including dishwasher, delivery, and installation).  This makes sense … because a given model is made exactly the same way … since it is a manufactured item. 

Plastic surgery is obviously completely different … yet for some strange reason many patients approach their selection of a plastic surgeon … as though they were shopping for a dishwasher.

The most common questions asked when someone contacts a plastic surgeon’s office are: 

  1. Is there a free consultation?
  2. How much does the procedure cost?

Clearly, this approach fails to recognize the difference in quality between different plastic surgeons.  Perhaps this is because many potential cosmetic surgery patients … assume they are getting the same procedure … from any given board-certified plastic surgeon.  This is clearly NOT the case … otherwise there would be little interest in revision plastic surgery to correct ‘botched’ results from prior operations.

Cosmetic plastic surgery patients who are interested in revision plastic surgery … approach their search for a cosmetic surgeon in a very different way.  They clearly understand there can be a tremendous difference among different plastic surgeons. They tend to be hyper-focused on finding … the best plastic surgeon … to somehow miraculously get the result they hoped to achieve initially. 

Revision plastic surgery patients do extensive due diligence (research) and are much more interested in the expertise and experience of the cosmetic plastic surgeon … with a full understanding that the best plastic surgeons will cost more … not less. 

Would anyone … ever … look for a ‘discount’ heart surgeon or brain surgeon?  Of course not.  Why then would anyone want a ‘discount’ plastic surgeon?

Unfortunately, ‘the cheapest option is often the most expensive’ … since 2 operations will clearly cost more:  first the ‘bargain’ procedure, then the ‘expensive’ revision procedure to fix the suboptimal result from the initial ‘inexpensive’ plastic surgeon.

It is far better to … do it right the first time.  Investing in quality is always wise … particularly when it is your body.  Choosing which plastic surgeon to sculpt your face or body should be a … thoroughly researched and thoughtful decision … to find the best plastic surgeon who can consistently deliver … the best results … with an easier recovery and … less chance of complications.

When contacting a plastic surgeon’s office for the first time, perhaps the better questions to ask are:

1) What procedure(s) do I need to achieve the look I desire?

2) Am I a good candidate for elective cosmetic surgery?

3) What does this surgeon do differently than other surgeons … to achieve superior results?

Performance … determines outcome.

– Steven J White MD

The best plastic surgeons … create the best results.  Study their plastic surgery Before/After Pictures.  Read their cosmetic surgery Reviews/Testimonials.  Thoroughly explore their website.

First, decide which plastic surgeon would be able to create the best result. 

Then, decide whether you want to … make the investment in yourself … to get the best.

Why do some plastic surgeons charge more for the ‘same’ procedure?

USA Plastic Surgery, Dallas Fort Worth, Texas TX

Simple. It’s probably not truly the ‘same’ procedure … since it is likely performed in a different and better way … by the more exceptional, more experienced, and more expensive plastic surgeon. 

Is a car … just a car? Not if one is a Mercedes … and the other a Chevy.  Both may work well … but if you could only drive one car for the rest of your life, which would you choose? 

Is a painting … just a painting? Not if one is the Mona Lisa (Leonardo de Vinci) … or the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel (Michelangelo).

Have you considered how much difference there can be … in how a plastic surgery procedure is performed by different surgeons?

Everyone knows not all nose jobs or facelifts are the same.  Why? Because bad facial plastic surgery results cannot be covered up or hidden.  Almost everyone who is contemplating a rhinoplasty or facelift is scared (whether they admit it or not).  Why? Because everyone has seen examples of terrible nose jobs with ‘over-resected, done’ noses … and bad facelifts with ‘pulled, wind-swept’ faces.  Some older famous examples of bad plastic surgery include Michael Jackson, Joan Rivers, and Kenny Rogers. 

Obviously, bad plastic surgery is not limited to facial plastic surgery.  There are countless examples of ‘botched’ breast implants, breast lifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks, and liposuction.  Bad plastic surgery results capture your attention … because they look abnormal.    Exceptional plastic surgery results, on the other hand, look so natural … that no one even knows they had plastic surgery!

Of course, the goal is not to simply avoid bad plastic surgery.  Instead, the goal should be to … find the best plastic surgeon for the procedure you are interested in. 

Doing one thing well … is not that hard.

Doing everything well … is extremely difficult

How do you pick a plastic surgeon?

USA Plastic Surgery, Dallas Fort Worth, Texas TX

Choosing the right plastic surgeon … is not as easy as it seems. 

Step 1: Start by ensuring the surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to perform surgery of the face … as well as the breasts and body. 

Step 2: Then, look at their work.  See their before-and-after photos. Do you like their plastic surgery results? Do they look natural … or fake? Be sure you see multiple views of every patient for a complete picture. Don’t just look at the procedure you are interested in. Instead, go a step further and look at before/after pictures for ALL the cosmetic plastic surgery procedures they perform. 

Step 3: Next, go beyond the surgical results. Study the before/after photos to analyze the quality and consistency of the actual photographs.  Do the Before & After Pictures look like they were taken by a professional photographer? Or … are they inconsistent … with poor lighting … and hard to compare the ‘before’ and the ‘after’ due to poor photography?

Plastic surgeons are judged by the quality of their surgical results … as seen in their Before & After Pictures.  If a plastic surgeon doesn’t make the effort to learn how to take exceptional photographs to showcase their results … that may suggest a lack of commitment and attention to detail … both in surgery as well as patient care … before and after surgery.  Why would anyone choose a plastic surgeon with lousy photos and mediocre results?

Step 4: Equally important in choosing a plastic surgeon, read patient reviews/testimonials … to see what their patients say … about the quality of their results … and the care they received. Although a picture is worth a thousand words, the stories patients tell … can give you greater insight into what makes a cosmetic plastic surgeon truly extraordinary.

It all comes down to Performance:  Show me a picture … Tell me a story. 

Step 5: If you are impressed with the before/after pictures and reviews, next learn more about the plastic surgeon … to understand how they consistently achieve the best plastic surgery results.  Only then … should you consider the costs … as you consider your choice of plastic surgeons
