A year after he launched the first-ever plastic surgery clinic in the U.S., anesthesiologist Chris Lutz says he’s ready to take over.
He started the operation in San Francisco’s Mission District in 2014 and now has an office in Santa Monica, California.
“There is no other industry that can provide the same quality of care as plastic surgery,” Lutz told Recode.
“We’re able to do this because we’ve built an environment where we have the highest level of ethical standards, and I think it’s also a place where we can be the first to take care of patients.”
Lutz, a surgeon and former medical student at Harvard Medical School, is currently running the first plastic surgery practice in California, which opened in January.
Lutz is not alone.
More than 400,000 Americans are currently insured through the Affordable Care Act.
And, for a lot of them, the cost of a plastic surgery procedure could be much cheaper than a new car or a house.
Plastic surgery is one of the top three areas of care covered by private insurers.
In 2014, there were more than 1.2 million procedures performed in the United States, according to the National Association of Receptive Health Professionals, and nearly 80% of those were for cosmetic procedures.
Lutzes operation is a case study in why cosmetic surgery is such a risky business.
LUTZ says the reason it is expensive is because cosmetic surgeons are not trained to perform cosmetic surgery on the body.
The only thing they can do is to fix it and replace the plastic.
That is the cost that the patients pay.
And that’s just to fix something that was broken.
Lutsa says there is no way for cosmetic surgeons to keep their jobs if they don’t have enough money in the bank.
That’s because of the high price of plastic surgery.
“The cost is a total non-negotiable part of it,” Lutts said.
I’ll take care care of you and you don`t have to pay.’ “
You can’t be a doctor and say, ‘I’ll fix it for free.
Luttis operation is not the first one to open in the Bay Area. “
So, we need to be able to take on these high-risk patients who are willing to pay a lot for it and make it affordable for them,” he said.
Luttis operation is not the first one to open in the Bay Area.
Earlier this year, a plastic surgeon in the Los Angeles area, John Stavrou, opened his first practice in the heart of the city.
It’s called the Plastic Surgery Clinic, but it’s not the only one.
Luti-Saranda is also working on his own business, which aims to help people in the area who are looking for cosmetic surgery.
He is also looking to expand into the Bay area and beyond.
Luta-Saraan says his first business in the region will be a plastic shop.
It will be in a residential building on West Alameda Avenue in Santa Rosa.
Lota-Sarias first patient will be an 18-year-old girl with Down syndrome.
“She’s going to need a procedure done that will make her body more like that of a girl,” Luttas said.
This will not only fix her breasts and hips, but her face, neck, ears, and nose.
He said it will also allow her to look her best and get the attention she needs.
Luto-Saronas hope that one day his business will have a franchise in Santa Barbara.
“I think I have an idea of what I’m going to do, I have a plan for it,” he told Recio.
He hopes to open his first shop by the end of 2020.
Luteras hope his experience as a surgeon can help other people who are struggling to make ends meet.
“If I can teach other people, I hope I can help them out,” he explained.
“Maybe I can open a business that can help somebody else who is just like me.
And if that happens, I will definitely be back.”
