Southern Plastic Surgery Patients Help Raise $5600 for Breast Cancer Treatment and Awareness

Without the amazing support from my Atlanta plastic surgery patients and colleagues, I could not do what I do. For that reason, I would like to take this blog to thank the patients (and their families) who purchased tickets for this year’s Pink in the Rink event.  Thanks to the Gwinnett Gladiators and your help, over $5600 was raised for The Sport of Giving 501(c)(3).

Thanks to your assistance, our locally founded, now nationally known, Sport of Giving can continue their mission of raising awareness and funds for women’s cancer treatment centers and prevention initiatives.  In the event you didn’t get to participate in this year’s festivities, make sure you keep an eye on the Southern Plastic Surgery blog to find out about upcoming Sport of Giving events.  If you haven’t already, make sure you connect with me on Facebook and Twitter for the latest breast reconstruction and plastic surgery news.

Thank you again!

Why does pricing for Botox® and Dysport® vary so much from provider to provider?

Botox® and Dysport® have become wildly popular wrinkle treatments for patients wishing to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and wrinkles between the eyes.  The active ingredient within these dermal injectables is a purified form of botulinum toxin A– a substance that works to temporarily relax the wrinkle causing muscles into which it’s injected.  Most Botox® and Dysport® patients report noticeable reduction of their wrinkles for two to four months following the cosmetic skin treatment.

Why does pricing for Botox® and Dysport® vary so much from provider to provider?Given the temporary nature of the treatment, facial rejuvenation patients regularly search for the best Botox® and Dysport® discounts to try and minimize the size of their ongoing investment.  Although, it’s important to understand that, just as the case with the cost of plastic surgery, there are many components involved in Botox® and Dysport® pricing.  Injectable providers purchase their products from manufacturer representatives in various quantities and varying solution dilution percentages (based on patient demand, practice budget, relationship with representative, etc.)   The providers (i.e.- board certified plastic surgeon or certified nurse injector) then charges for the product by the number of areas being treated, the number of units being used, or the number of syringes.

The best deal on Botox® and Dysport® treatment depends on the patient’s individual needs.  If a patient has deep set lines and extensive wrinkles, they may want to explore a provider who offers injectables priced per area as pricing by the unit will be higher (more wrinkle relaxing product is required for more expansive wrinkles).  If you’re looking to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles in numerous areas, price per area would not be the best option.  At Southern Plastic Surgery, our Atlanta Botox® and Dysport® pricing is simple: we charge a flat fee for unlimited treatment areas with one injectable.  With all of the media attention surrounding the treatment, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all of the different offers.  One thing to always remember before pursuing facial injectables or any facial plastic surgery procedure is to thoroughly research your plastic surgeon.  A wonderful price cannot replace medical training and procedure experience.
