Looking through my local OC Weekly newspaper, it is again obvious why I do not advertise.
The ads I see are those of obvious “chop shops” in which speed and “cutting corners” are undoubtedly centers of focus. I would wager anesthesia services to be little or none and operating facilities to be sparsely outfitted. An emergency in such a place could end you up on Hard Copy.
I never really wanted to be the bargain basement guy. I never liked the idea of having to be done quickly to make a profit. At the prices advertised, quality cannot be the main goal of these outfits. Quality is always high on my list.
I would be very cautious of finding a plastic surgeon via such an advertisement.
