When patients are considering plastic surgery, it is normal for them to compare the prices at a number of different practices. It can be hard to obtain this information when many practices will only provide ballpark figures when a consultation is booked. This does not always help patients come to a decision. Although cost should not be the only factor when choosing a plastic surgeon, it unequivocally plays a role. To help patients obtain this information easily, “there is an app for that”.
A doctor recognized that there was a real need for an application that would allow individuals to explore plastic surgery prices on their own. Build My Bod is just getting started, but it intends to launch on a global scale. It would allow doctors to determine which information they’d like to make public on the application. It would allow patients to get the information they need easily so that once the knowledge of price is out of the way they can focus on looking at a doctor’s qualifications to make their choice.

Heidi Montag is best known for her extensive plastic surgery. The reality star famously had ten procedures in one day, but has now announced she is done with plastic surgery for good…almost. In an interview with Us Weekly, she added that she may change her mind as she gets older and go under the knife once again. If you have forgotten, so far, Montag has had the following procedures:
Montag says she is done with cosmetic procedures in her youth as she has admitted that having such extensive surgery does have its drawbacks. She can no longer partake in intense physical exercise because of her breast size and she feels her body is more fragile due to her many procedures. Many of the procedures that Montag opted for are those that women choose to have once they have aged further, so it will be interesting to see what her choices are later in life.
Though surgery to this extent in one day is not recommended in most cases, Dr. Fiorillo can assist you with your cosmetic procedure needs and discuss safe ways of reaching your aesthetic goals if you make an appointment.
