Fancy a new facelift? What about a tummy tuck or a butt lift? The possibilities are endless given that crypto fans can now pay for plastic surgery with digital assets thanks to the open mind of Georgia Plastic and Reconstructive.
Georgia Plastic Is Okay with Accepting Bitcoin
The company is the latest to say “yes” to crypto payments and push the bitcoin agenda forward. Initially, digital currencies were designed to serve as payment currencies and push things like checks, credit cards and fiat into oblivion. Unfortunately, this has been a slow journey given that digital currencies are very prone to volatility and price swings.
This has made many retailers, stores and other businesses look upon the idea of crypto payments with disgust. They are not interested in potentially losing profit as the result of an unexpected or last-minute swing and to a degree, we can’t really blame them.
Consider this example. Say you walk into a store and buy $50 worth of merchandise with bitcoin. For one reason or another, the store does not transfer that money into fiat right away and a full 24 hours go by. The next day, the price of bitcoin drops and that $50 you paid is now worth $40. You still get to walk away with everything you bought, but the store has lost roughly ten dollars in profit. Is that a fair scenario? Some people don’t think so.
Bitcoin and its digital counterparts are not always looked at the way they should be, but thanks to the innovation of firms like Georgia Plastic, things can potentially get moving in the right direction. Plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Okoro explained in a recent interview:
Over the last few years, we’ve seen how much power cryptocurrency has, and we expect this to continue to grow. We have a diverse patient population that resides around the world. We are excited to offer this new method of payment to meet their needs and continue to trailblaze innovation in patient care in the aesthetic industry.
Fix Your Face with Crypto
The company has joined hands with bitcoin payment processor Bit Pay to accept crypto payments. Digital assets are now accepted for both surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures at both Georgia Plastic and Amachi Med Spa, a division of the former. Both companies have stated that users can pay with their wallets of choice, while assets such as bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (Doge), bitcoin cash, (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), and assorted stable currencies are accepted.
Georgia Plastic was first established in the year 2010 and offers a wide array of surgical treatments offered by board certified plastic surgeons and physician assistants. Among the cosmetic procedures the firm provides are liposuction, tummy tucks, fat transfers, and hair transplants. The company also offers age-defying procedures such as cellulite reduction, Coolsculpting, and laser hair removal.
