Price Procedures On Your Iphone Or Ipad

Want to find a cosmetic surgeon, plan and price a procedure, and make an appointment straight from your iPhone or iPad? You know what's coming-there's an app for that.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, almost 10 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2009, costing more than $13 billion. Ever called a plastic surgeon's office to find out the price of something? Chances are they told you they needed to see you first. That's not because they want to charge you for a consultation. That usually comes at no cost. Most likely, it's because the cost of a cosmetic procedure takes several aspects into account besides the doctor's fee like: cost of the operating room, anesthesia, implants, etc. But still, some of us are just curious and don't have the time.

That's where the BuildMyBod app comes in. This app, developed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, can help you find a doctor in your area and will send you an automated e-mail of the approximate cost for the procedure of your interest. That means, you can look at prices from different doctors, without saying a word or moving an inch. Technology can be pretty cool, huh? Don't worry Android users-your version is in the works.
