LOS ANGELES, May 17, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A May 1 article on USA Today detailed Florida's new law regulating discount plastic surgery and cosmetic treatment clinics that was pushed through the state's legislature in the wake of a fatalities at a number of centers allegedly owned by the same unscrupulous individual. Beverly Hills Physicians, a health and beauty medical group with offerings ranging from Botox injections to bariatric weight loss procedures, says that strong regulation of medical clinics is helpful not only on behalf of patients but also for reputable medical groups in terms of preserving their field's reputation.
The weight loss and plastic surgery center says that research conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons indicates that the rate of fatalities at discount surgeries is more than 16 times higher than at clinics overall. Moreover, this statistic does not take into account the number of botched operations resulting in injuries and disfigurement that may be occurring at cut-rate medical and cosmetic offices. Beverly Hills Physicians notes, however, that plastic surgery as we know it today has existed for over a century and has been perfected both in terms of effectiveness as well as safety. In an era of rapidly improving medical science and technology, procedures conducted by respected physicians and qualified medical personnel can be considered exceptionally safe.
On the other hand, the clinic says, it's completely understandable that many prospective patients worry about the cost of procedures; money is always a finite resource. Nevertheless, going to a cut-rate surgery center, even in a relatively well-regulated environment, is at best a false-economy and at worst a danger to an individual's health and life, says Beverly Hills Physicians. Many dubious clinics may follow the letter of the law but they are fairly likely to exercise relaxed standards which are nothing to be relaxed about. The medical group adds the patients that who patronize less than completely reputable doctors or practitioners risk not only potential harm and a great deal of heartache, but also spending vastly more time and money on costly revision procedures than they would have had they simply visited an experienced plastic surgeon and had a successful operation the first time around. In the end, the medical group says that going to a skilled physician with a track record and a strong reputation is always the best bargain.
Beverly Hills Physicians notes that, for prospective patients who may be concerned about finances, its consultants can often help them to work out payment plans that can fit comfortably in most budgets.
