“Discounted Plastic Surgery Prices = Discounted Plastic Surgeon….Really?”
How many times have you seen the above statement (minus the question)? In addition, you may have heard friends or read something along the lines of “you get what you pay for”.
Over the past 20 years, Dr. Baker has been asked how and why he offers lower than average fees ($3300-$4400) for primary breast augmentation surgery.
The “how” is a simple economic principle. His practice is located in a small city (population 65,000+) with a low cost of living index resulting in smaller overhead expenses. Most income and sales taxes, utilities, building and business expenses are relatively modest (in comparison to larger cities) for many professionals in our city of Dothan. These savings can be passed along to “patients/customers”.
The “why” his fees are lower than most is his belief that cosmetic surgery by and far will improve a psychologically healthy person’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Dr. Baker gains tremendous personal satisfaction touching the lives of patients in this way.
Although Dr. Baker tries to make plastic surgery affordable for everyone, rest assured our patients are not receiving a “discounted” plastic surgeon. Dr. Baker has been board-certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery for almost 20 years. In that time, he’s performed over 6,000 breast procedures. In addition to being known for beautiful breast enhancement results, he’s developed a great reputation for breast revision surgeries.
Additionally, his office staff is second to none! They are caring, helpful, well-educated and knowledgeable about all areas of cosmetic surgery. Each patient receives individualized attention and treated with respect. (You can read reviews from patients at http://www.realpatientratings.com/Dwight-Baker/.) We want all of our patients to be very confident and comfortable when deciding to have elective surgery.
Nothing is ever compromised in treating his patients! Dr. Baker performs all of his cases in the accredited out-patient surgery facility of Flowers Hospital with a complete, specialty trained staff including board-certified Anesthesiologists, CRNAs, RNs, LPNs, etc. Should anything emergently occur, there are additional hospital personnel and equipment available for immediate attention.
So simply summarized, Dr. Baker offers lower than average fees for primary breast augmentations because of reduced overhead, and his desire to improve the self-esteem and self-confidence of individuals seeking these changes.
