Prices for plastic surgery have increased in Russia, a prominent Russian plastic surgeon, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Natalya Manturova said in an interview with NEWS.ru


Doctor Manturova noted the increase in consumables' cost, which is due to changes in the exchange rate. Thus, imported products have risen in price more than domestic ones - by 50% compared to 30% for domestic ones.

Of course, the rise in prices for consumables affected the increase in the cost of plastic surgeries because their prime cost increased. If we consider only consumables, then prices for operations, such as blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, mammoplasty, and face lifting, have risen by 14% in general, much less than the increase in consumables' prices, the doctor explained.

Brittleness, changes in the texture and color of nails may indicate serious diseases. Their yellow color may be a sign of type 2 diabetes, NEWS.ru reported earlier.
