When having cosmetic surgery, I know the surgeons fees have to be paid in FULL before surgery, but can the facility fees and anesthesia be paid by monthly payments?

Cosmetic Surgery Fees
Cosmetic Surgery Fees like all discretionary spending (IE Movies, Airlines, Cruises cars) are pre-paid either by the patient or by a credit card, bank or finance company. Most Plastic surgeons work with and can direct you to finance companies that can help you achieve your goals.
All fees for your surgery will need to be paid in advance, but many financing options exist
Typically you will need to have all fees for your surgery taken care of in advance of your surgery date.
The many excellent financing options that are now available may appeal to you, however. Many of these programs allow payment over time, with low interest rates (some even offer "same as cash" programs).
Ask your chosen surgeon which programs he/she works with and offers.
