Aesthetic Society News – Fall 2017
by Karen Zupko, President
To charge or not to charge? That is the question many aesthetic surgeons and their staff ask about paid consultation fees.
Some are concerned that if they charge, patients will schedule with a free “cosmetic surgeon” across town. Others use the excuse, “Everyone else is free–so how can I charge?” Younger surgeons worry they won’t build a patient base if they don’t offer free consults. And, then there are the confident, self assured surgeons who see their consultation as a real service for which they’ve earned compensation.
