How dangerous is a low cost tummy tuck?

My friend wants to have a tummy tuck and she is look for a surgeon that will give her the best deal and that worries me. I keep trying to tell her that when it comes to your body and surgery you should choose a surgeon that has the best credentials as this is your health. Would you mind sharing some of your thoughts on this and I can share it with my friend? I told her if she is worried about the cost of the surgery there is financing available...

You are completely correct - your friend should ONLY have her surgery done by someone who is qualified. For a tummy tuck, that would be someone who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. While being budget conscious is very reasonable, cosmetic surgery is not something you want to do based only on price. Most cosmetic surgeons do offer some kind of financing. So I would strongly urge your friend to do her research and not simply sing on to have her procedure with a cosmetic surgeon just based on who is the cheapest. Zwivel is an excellent platform for your friend to start a private and secure virtual consultation online to get multiple opinions and estimated fees before deciding which surgeon to go see for a full consultation.
