When Plastic Surgery Makes You a Millionaire

The idea of plastic surgery sounds like it should be a fun thing to do, but it’s not without its dangers.

A few months ago, plastic surgeon and self-proclaimed entrepreneur Scott McLean released a new documentary called Plastic Surgery: A Millionaire, which tells the story of a man who became one of the world’s most successful plastic surgeons after being diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder.

When he was a young man, McLean had a plastic surgery procedure done at his local hospital.

Now he has a job in New York City that pays him $50,000 per year, and he has been on the road for the past few years selling his services. 

“I’m the best surgeon in the world, so if I’m in a place where I’m doing something that’s dangerous, I’m gonna do it,” McLean told IGN. 

The documentary’s premise is pretty obvious.

In the early days of plastic surgeons working in hospitals, they would perform some type of procedure on the patients that they knew would be a great way to get a big paycheck.

It didn’t take long for them to start doing it in a more risky and dangerous way. 

In the documentary, McElwaine tells the stories of patients who had their eyesight, noses, and ears damaged due to a genetic mutation.

“They have to spend hours, days, months, sometimes years just working to repair what’s gone wrong, because it can be very costly,” he said.

The cost of plastic surgeries has increased since then, with the average price of plastic surgeon surgeries at around $80,000, according to the National Institutes of Health. 

McElwane also talks about the challenges faced by patients who need to get the surgery done, especially in rural areas where they don’t have much money to buy equipment or transportation. 

And McElWaine also talks to the surgeons about the people who don’t understand the importance of getting the surgery and have it done at a safe and clean location. 

With the introduction of the new film, McLaverty hopes to provide some closure for those who still feel the need to undergo surgery.

“I think we have to stop the cycle of saying, ‘Hey, I can’t afford it,'” McLaury told IGN in an interview.

“The truth is that you need to pay a little bit more money than you think you do, and it takes a lot of people doing it to get it done.”
