How Do You Choose Your Price
Patients make their decision in four different ways.
1. The best doctor that I can afford
2. The lowest price that is still a safe/credible doctor to go with
3. I want the most expensive doctor out there, because that means they’re one of the best
4. I like this doctor most, let me see if I can afford his/her prices
The way a patient makes one of these decisions is really just a personal preference.
In option 4, “I like this doctor most, let me see if I can afford it,” price is not the main issue but a secondary thing. This is the option I recommend going with. The reason is that you should consult with a few doctors and see which one you are comfortable with. Too many factors influence price that have nothing to do with the patient-doctor relationship or even with results.
And now, with the existence of financing for cosmetic procedures, this also helps patients go with a certain surgeon that may be outside of their initial budget. Thanks to financing, most fees are accessible to patients, giving them more power to choose their doctor.
