By now, most people are familiar with daily deal sites for meals, events, fitness classes, and even skydiving. Perusing these sites can be a great way to try out a new restaurant or hobby, but there are some offerings on these sites that can be a little more controversial.

Cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening with a dentist, are routinely offered as are treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and laser hair removal.

While the wisdom of choosing these treatments without first meeting the healthcare provider may be ill-advised, some cut-rate services are even more concerning, such as laser liposuction treatments.

While the price markdown on these treatments may seem like a steal, there are a number of problems with choosing a treatment like SmartlipoTM laser liposuction from a daily deals site.

Safety Concerns

One of the major problems with choosing a clinic and surgeon through a temporary deal is that you will likely not have time to meet the surgeon beforehand and scope out the facilities that will be used for the procedure.

Smartlipo is a surgical procedure, though a minimally-invasive one, and a consultation with potential surgeons is essential for making an informed decision about your procedure. You don’t want to risk your safety just to save some money.

Your Results

Smartlipo requires a high level of skill on the surgeon’s part in order to produce satisfactory results for the patient. Though many doctors offer the procedure, few specialize in it, and it’s easy to end up with a poor result due to inexperience or other issues.

If you’re really interested in Smartlipo, then you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the best results for your time, money, and effort.

Are You a Candidate?

One of the major downsides of choosing laser liposuction from a daily deal site is the impulsive nature of the purchase. You will not have time to make an informed decision about whether Smartlipo is right for you, and you may not even be a candidate.

Laser liposuction is ideal for isolated pockets of fat, but not for weight loss. In addition, only a plastic or cosmetic surgeon can assess your individual candidacy and make the call on whether you are healthy enough for the procedure.
