Dr. Motykie strongly recommends people to exercise careful judgment and discretion when opting for any aesthetic procedures from injectables to plastic surgery.

Your Body is Precious
Any procedure that is designed to treat the body or physical appearance is ultimately only medicine. Therefore, choosing a salon or another non-medical facility for such procedures is fraught with obvious risks. Such procedures may sometimes appear to be minor in the beginning, or clever marketing tactics may make patients believe them to be minor, but they can pose risk for the patient’s health as well as looks if they are performed by an individual who is not adequately trained for it.
Dr. Motykie suggests that any procedure that involves the body needs to be performed only by a certified expert with sufficient experience in that particular procedure. Human skin and other body organs are very delicate, and even the slightest mistake can prove to be costly. Sometimes the damage can be long-term or permanent. In many cases, if the procedure goes wrong, the physical and emotional scars can last a lifetime.
Cost of Revision Procedures
If a procedure performed by an unqualified person results in undesirable results, it can cost a lot more money to fix it. Multiple revision procedures may be required, and typically a revision surgery will cost more than the primary surgery because of the complexities involved. In any case, revision surgeries are no guarantee of full recovery from the damage caused in the first place. Therefore, patients ought to consider the risk of adverse consequences carefully before they choose to opt for alluring bargain deals in aesthetic procedures.
Risk with Botox Bargains
Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the U.S., and clearly, bargain offers abound to cash upon the opportunity in this area. However, patients should be aware that Botox is made from botulinum neurotoxin, which is the most powerful biological substance known to man. It is designed to temporarily paralyze the targeted nerve that is causing a wrinkle. If this potent medication is delivered wrongly or used in wrong dosage, it can cause severe damage to the face.
Only certified and experienced Botox providers at a medical office facility should provide this treatment. Another challenge is that some marketers use Botox bargains just to get the patient into the door in order to sell them more invasive and complicated aesthetic procedures. It is up to the people to apply their own judgment, and not get attracted by the lure of cheap prices.
Science and Art of Cosmetic Procedures
Plastic surgery and lesser invasive procedures are scientific treatments that should ideally be performed in a medical environment where the risk of infection, bio-sanitary risks, and pre- and post-procedure risks are adequately addressed. Secondly, aesthetic procedures are an art, and not just a technical skill. Cheaper deals in such procedures can prove to be a lot more expensive in the end.
