We understand that price is important to most individuals opting to have liposuction or other cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Lind trained in and around Miami, Florida and he is very well-educated on the plastic surgery market in this area. There are many high-volume “chop shops” in Miami that charge a fraction of the price for what you might pay for a cosmetic surgical procedure here in Houston, Texas. However, it is in these centers in Miami where most of the cosmetic surgery deaths in the United States occur due to poor training on the behalf of the surgeons.
Also, in our practice, Dr. Lind will be performing your Brazilian butt lift himself, with only an assistant, on occasion, who might help close incisions. However, in Miami, it is very common for the surgeon to also have another surgeon or physician’s assistant, who is typically only licensed in another country doing a portion of your case. That is to say, the surgeon you signed up with does the left side, while another surgeon—without an actual Florida license—does the right side. This often times leads to very bad, disastrous, and uneven results. In these centers, it is really an assembly line and they do your procedure as fast as possible so they can move to the adjoining operating room to start the next one. They have to make their income on doing a high volume of cases, so less time and attention is spent on your case and a portion is oftentimes delegated to a non-qualified, unlicensed practitioner.
