For many Americans looking to make the most of this tough economy, the right choice has ultimately become the most affordable choice. In most cases, it’s a solid line of thinking – generic bread over name brand, discount groups to save on dining, and other ways to get by with a smaller budget. However, there are some places where cutting cost should not be a factor, such as plastic surgery. If your low-cost plastic surgery goes awry, then the emotional and financial cost to repair it may exceed any amount of “expensive” plastic surgery you would have chosen. [Videos after the Break] Miami Beach resident Elsie Soto was tired of watching beautifully tone women strut their stuff around her popular beach town. The 32-year-old went to three plastic surgeons before choosing one based solely on cost. Strax Rejuvenation and Aesthetics Institutes charged $5,000 where other surgery centers quoted anywhere between $10,000 to $12,000. After her liposuction and fat transfer surgery, Soto was unable to move her legs. Instead of sending her to a hospital, a nurse took Soto to her own home. Soto says she has no memory of being taken to the hospital two days later — on her mother's insistence — and needed two blood transfusions when she got there. That was just the beginning. After almost $50,000 in medical bills (including nearly $40,000 for her hospital stay) that insurance won't cover because the procedure was elective, three months out of work and continued pain down her left leg, Soto now says low-cost, high-volume cosmetic surgery clinics are not the way to go.
