How bad is it in Detroit? Even plastic surgeons and dermatologists are advertising special deals to spark more business. The Skin and Vein Center is advertising a March Madness Sale: 50% off any cosmetic face work. The outfit, which has three Detroit-area sites that were all closed the afternoon of March 13, is promoting the sale on its website in a banner ad with the headline "The Dow has dropped -- your face doesn't have to."
Meanwhile, Star Plastic Surgery in tony suburban Novi recently ran an ad on local TV offering the first 25 patients who called a two-for-one deal for procedures along with a free overnight hospital visit. Reached at the office today, the office manager, who would identify herself only as Peggy, said the deal was extended because it was so popular. Neither Dr. Dwight Galloway nor Dr. Diana Lamdie was available, but you can check out the deal at the website.
