Baylor was a trauma center and we saw a lot of trauma, including gunshot and knife wounds. My first night on call a guy had been shot through the heart. We did open heart surgery on him right in the ER and saved his life. Now that was pretty cool!
I’ve given this entire groupie thing a long, hard look and thought very deeply about it (perhaps I need to get a life of my own and stop living vicariously!). If you read my previous article on another infamous groupie, Kat Stacks, you will see that these young ladies often come from very humble or difficult beginnings and at a very young age they got bitten by the bug of materialism.

But, there are even most costs for your procedure that you may not be aware of. These are small things like medications and post surgical dressings and garments. But, even medications can cost you up to $500. And, you cannot overlook the fact that, you will most likely need some tests before the surgery can take place, and these tests are not typically included in the aforementioned costs. And, it is worth mentioning that your procedure can cost less if there is less reconstruction to be done. And, conversely will cost much more if the work is more extensive. This means, if a DO. has to remove much more fat to achieve the desired results, then the price tag is higher.
Yourself! knowledge is power only when you use it. The more information you know about your surgeon and surgery, the more likely your chances of having a successful operation. If a company claims to have the best plastic surgeons “database,” find out everything you can about the company. Does the company specialize in researching only the best doctors ? Remember, there are many web sites: anyone can have a doctor database. The question is, do doctors pay to be listed in their database? Do they actually research every single doctor? Is the company a credible source ?
