Though the economy has shown signs of recovery since the Great Recession of 2008, many families in Tennessee are still paying close attention to their finances and looking for bargains wherever they can find them. However, if you're interested in a few touch-ups, whether it's a complex procedure like a breast augmentation or something less invasive like Botox injections, this is one area where the price tag should never take total precedent.

"Cost is always a factor, but it should never be the deciding factor in cosmetic surgery. Safety and quality are always the key issues,"  said American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) Dr. Jack Fisher in a recent press release from the group. 

Plastic surgery as a whole has gotten much more mainstream in recent years, which has its dangers as well as its benefits. While it is fantastic that so many women feel comfortable expressing and addressing their physical concerns, the prevalence of these treatments can make some forget that even minor nips and tucks are still medical procedures. With that in mind, the ASAPS recommends conducting ample research before committing to a plastic surgery clinic or medi-spa.

If you are going to a medi-spa for dermal fillers or Botox, among other treatments, the ASAPS suggests selecting a location that has a physician on-hand to address any complications. Though such instances are rare, it is in your best interest to make sure a clinic is well-equipped to handle them.
