During these tough economic times, many people are trying to save money, but Dr. Michael Chiaramonte wants to remind them that their health should come first. So he's matching advertised prices for breast augmentation in the DC area this spring.
National Harbor, Maryland (May 2010)—Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Chiaramonte performs breast augmentation for Maryland and Washington, DC, women and is offering to match advertised prices for breast enlargement in the DC area this spring. Providing exceptional value and protecting patient health are the guiding reasons Dr. Chiaramonte cites for this special offer.
“For me it's about increased affordability, but also patient safety,” Dr. Chiaramonte explains. “In this tough economy, a lot of people are taking to heart the idea of getting more for less. But when it comes to cosmetic surgery, when you pay less, you may be putting your health at risk. I want to help women make a smart choice by providing an affordable breast augmentation fee from a highly trained and experienced doctor.”
Dr. Chiaramonte’s efforts come as part of a larger trend toward educating patients about the importance of board certification in plastic surgery. In a recent study, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that as many of 40% of doctors performing liposuction in one area of the United States lacked appropriate surgical training, and warned that procedures by poorly trained surgeons pose a “serious threat” to the health of patients. Maryland plastic surgeon Dr. Chiaramonte believes better patient education is needed so that more women and men make a smart choice for their health and surgical results.
“I want to help patients choose a doctor based on what’s best for their health and well being—not just on which doctor is offering the lowest price,” he explains. “This is why my practice is matching advertised prices for breast augmentation. When patients come to see me, we can have a more detailed consultation, and I can share the benefits of my board certification and my commitment to surgical excellence.”
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the local market and, as such, is one of the most commonly advertised procedures as well. At this time, Dr. Chiramonte’s practice, Bella Cosmetic Surgery, is only offering the price match special for breast enlargement performed by a board certified plastic surgeon in the Suburban Maryland, DC, or Northern Virginia area. The offer is available for procedures scheduled by Memorial Day. In the future, the offer may be extended beyond breast augmentation.
“Whether I perform a tummy tuck, eyelid surgery, or liposuction in Maryland, the principle is the same: only a doctor with the right qualifications and extensive experience is worth trusting with your health,” says Dr. Chiaramonte. “I think many women who are considering breast augmentation will realize that now is a perfect time to take the next step, saving money while still receiving first-rate care.”
