I am not the only one who is struggling to make ends meet.
The National Institutes of Health estimates that, for every $1 spent on plastic surgery at a hospital, the patient costs about $2,400 in lost wages.
That is why there is a growing demand for the surgical procedure, which has become a lucrative specialty of many doctors.
The cost of the procedure has dropped by as much as 40 percent over the last two decades.
According to an article on CBSNews.com, the average cost of a breast augmentation is $2.6 million and for the procedure to fix a facial mole, $6.2 million.
That is an increase of more than 80 percent over four decades, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
It is estimated that in 2020, more than 60 percent of all cosmetic surgeries will be cosmetic, according the organization.
But, in the meantime, some people are paying higher prices than others, especially those who need a nose job, liposuction, implants, face lifts and nose jobs.
One man who is paying more than $6,000 a month for plastic surgeries, is John Baez, an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Louisville, Kentucky.
He says his monthly costs of $619,000 have doubled since he started the procedure four years ago.
He said he had been living in poverty for years and he knew that if he didn’t get surgery, he would be out of money.
“I was in debt,” he said.
“The money is just there.
I have a house, a car, and a mortgage, but it’s not enough.”
Baez said he is now paying more for the surgeries than he has for the previous three years combined.
He says he will eventually have to get a second opinion to determine if he is healthy enough to have a second surgery, but he is making it happen.
“We’re going to pay a price for the plastic surgery,” he explained.
I’m going to be able to make a living, so I’m going ahead and pay for it, he added.
