We’re getting more and more personal on the blog this week! After this post, in which I shared my hesitation about trying fillers (still thinking about it!), I would like to discuss a topic that is taboo for a lot of women: plastic surgery.
Cosmetic surgery can be a very positive, life-changing experience for those who don’t feel comfortable with themselves. Most people look down on it, but I feel like we are very lucky to live in a time where science and medicine allow us to control our appearance (if it makes us unhappy). Sure, living in LA, I see A LOT of abuse of plastic surgery, but not everyone ends up looking like one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! To tell you the truth, right now I don’t feel the need to use plastic surgery. But I know that I will totally consider it in a few years to fight the signs of age.
When you decide to go for it, you need to know that the key to a successful surgery procedure is to find the right qualified surgeon. However, finding a good surgeon that will match your budget and with whom you feel comfortable can be oh so confusing on the internet – getting prices and information can be a difficult task.
That’s why I want to introduce you to BodyBid, a new platform which connects patients with over 6,000 American Board of Plastic Surgery certified surgeons and allows you to request and compare their prices.
How it works:
This platform is very simple to use! After you enter your location you request a “bid” on the surgery you are seeking. Certified surgeons in the search radius will respond with a quote. Once they respond you can compare their offers and select the surgeon of your choice at a price that you can afford.
Why it is so convenient:
– It’s a private process: with BodyBid, there’s no need to go to different doctor’s offices or drive to consultations to get prices and information! You can easily request plastic surgery procedure quotes from the privacy of your home via your computer.
– It’s safe: the surgeons on the platform are reputable experts that are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (basically “la crème de la crème” of America’s surgeons).
– You get to decide: once you accept a bid, you are not committed to follow-through with surgery or even a consultation. However, if you choose to, and the surgeon agrees that you would be a good candidate for the procedure, he or she must honor the quote you received.
– Cherry on top: this service is absolutely free!
BodyBid’s platform is also a great source of information about your procedure, as well as the average price of each procedure (which can vary according to your location).
What do you think of this new platform? If you were thinking of trying plastic surgery, but were still hesitating, would it help you decide to go for it?
