Lawton
Plastic
Surgery
in
San
Antonio,
Texas

is
the
latest
business

to
say
“yes”
to
cryptocurrency
payments.
Owned
by
Dr.
Gary
Lawton,
the
facility
is
supporting
assets
like
bitcoin,
Ethereum,
and
several
other
altcoins,
and
has
agreed
to
accept
these
assets
as
methods
of
payment.

Plastic
Surgery
Will
Accept
BTC
for
Procedures

In
an
interview,
Dr.
Lawton
said:

Cryptocurrency
not
only
serves
as
an
alternative
payment
method
but
can
very
well
be
the
currency
of
the
future.
Cryptocurrency
is
dominating
the
news
at
the
end
of
2021,
with
big-name
celebrities
such
as
Matt
Damon
plugging
digital
currency,
and
LA’s
iconic
Staples
Center
being
rebranded
as
the
Crypto.com
Arena.

Patients
will
be
able
to
pay
with
whatever
wallet
system
they
choose.
Layton
is
working
with
several
different
bitcoin
and
crypto
payment
processors
as
a
means
of
allowing
customers
to
pay
with
a
wide
array
of
different
cryptocurrencies.
Among
the
procedures
that
are
available
to
clients
are
breast
cosmetic
procedures,
liposuction,
facelifts,
rhinoplasty,
chin
liposuction,
and
tummy
tucks.

Veronica
Gonzalez

who
has
served
as
the
practice
manager
for
more
than
20
years

stated:

Accepting
cryptocurrency
is
a
logical
step
for
the
practice
and
gives
our
patients
more
options.

Aside
from
having
his
practice,
Dr.
Lawton
is
also
the
founder
of
FullyBookedDoctors.com,
a
tech
startup
that
specializes
in
helping
plastic
surgeons
remain
busy
all
the
time.
He
says:

We
are
accepting
patients
from
all
over
the
world,
many
who
realize
crypto
is
the
currency
of
the
future.
Could
Elon
Musk,
Jack
Dorsey,
and
the
founders
of
YouTube
be
wrong?
I
think
not.

The
news
is
exciting
because
it
means
crypto
is
being
pushed
closer
towards
its
initial
goal
of
serving
as
a
payment
method.
Bitcoin
and
many
of
its
altcoin
cousins
were
initially
created
as
a
means
of
knocking
fiat
currencies,
credit
cards,
and
checks
to
the
side.
They
would
become
the
ultimate
and
primary
payment
methods
for
individuals
looking
to
purchase
everyday
goods
and
services.

However,
this
has
been
a
slow
journey
given
how
volatile
many
of
these
assets
have
been.
They
are
extremely
vulnerable
to
price
swings,
and
as
a
result,
many
stores,
retailers,
and
businesses
have
rejected
the
idea
of
accepting
crypto
payments,
and
to
be
fair,
we
can’t
fully
blame
them.

Why
So
Many
Have
Said
“No”

If
a
customer
walks
into
a
store
and
buys
$50
worth
of
merchandise
with
BTC,
for
example,
that
store
is
at
risk
if
it
does
not
exchange
the
digital
money
into
fiat
currency
right
away.
The
next
day,
the
price
of
BTC
could
fall
and
that
$50
will
turn
into
$40.
While
the
customer
gets
to
keep
all
they
bought,
the
store
has
lost
profit.

Lawton
is
not
the
first
plastic
surgeon
to
accept
crypto
for
procedures.
Georgia
Plastic
Reconstructive

announced
that
it
would
be

accepting
crypto
in
October
of
last
year
for
similar
cosmetic
work.
