Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

Let’s Make a Deal!

Let’s Make a Deal is great entertainment but has no place in a doctor’s office.

Plastic surgery deals

Not in my office, please!

I used to love watching Let’s Make a Deal as a kid when I was home sick from school.  It was just so fun to see the contestants win something really cool like a car and so funny to see the look on their face when their chosen door opened to reveal a donkey or some other outrageous booby prize.

Despite my fond memories of Let’s Make a Deal, I don’t play this game with my pricing of goods and services.  I recently had an inquiry about discounting my price for Juvederm, one of the hyaluronic acid fillers, for a woman and her 4 sisters.  I didn’t see the logic in discounting my price.  I spend the same care and time with each patient and the same amount of Juvederm and sometimes seeing a group of patients can turn into a bit of a three ring circus or a game show.

So I like to keep it professional, my services and my prices.  Otherwise I am crossing the line from doctor to used care salesman or a game show host.

Thanks for reading!  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
