Financing Plans for Body Lift and Breast Augmentation?

If I don't qualify for any type of financing plan, would the office have one? I am wanting to get a Body Lift and Breast Implants.

I have been wanting this for 9 years. And I need to know if I'm unable to get financing, the office will have financing plans of their own plans where I can make monthly payments with putting some downpayment?

I want to get this done for me, to make me feel better about my self and have the self confidence to get undressed in front of my husband.

Financing for Body Lift and Breast Augmentation

Dear Christie:

There are several financing options for a body lift and breast augmentation.  The first option would be using a company like CareCredit.  If your credit is good, a loan can be established.  If not, then I would suggest finding a credit card through the Internet with zero-percent (0%) interest rate for the first year.  Pay for your surgery on credit and pay the surgery off within a year to avoid paying interest. (Be sure that you pay the entire amount before the interest free period ends or the charges can really add up). Another option would be to contact your plastic surgeon’s office to see what financing plans they may offer.

I have financing plans available in my office where monthly payments can be arranged after a deposit is placed for the surgery.  These monthly installments can be established depending on your bank’s practice structure.


Thank you,

Financing for Surgery

Thank you for your question.

There are financing companies out there that will take patients with bad credit (unfortunately, they may charge you more in interest).  Also, I agree that sometimes a co-signer on the application may help you get the loan.

In regards to a surgeon having  "in house" financing, they MAY... it doesn't hurt to ask.

Most plastic surgeon's offices have multiple financing options including but not limited to Care Credit and Chase.  If you do not qualify for a certain amount for a large combined procedure, perhaps doing a smaller procedure may help.  Or as my colleagues have stated, obtaining a co-signer/co-applicant to your financing may help. Talk to your plastic surgeon's office staff to explore your options.

Financing body lift and breast augmetnation

We offer several finance companies to our patients.  With perfect credit you can obtain a 12 months interest free loan. if your credit history is not perfect there are companies which will offer financing. The interest rate charged varies according to your credit history and should be compared to what your interest rate charged for a credit card to see which is the better deal. You may consider asking a relative to be a co-signature which may lower the interst rate for the loan. We do offer an option to make pre-payments to save up for  your procedure which has been helpful to some of our patients.

I would recommend consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

In my practice, several companies are available for financing. It is not uncommon to have a family member sign as a co-applicant. There is no in house financing per say but we have allowed some patients to divide their payments before to allow them to get the surgery done.

Financing for body lift and breast augmentation in Atlanta

We offer two outside loan companies. These companies are designed to deal with patients with less than perfect credit. However if needed co-applicants are allowed by most loan companies. Check with family members or friends to see if they would be willing to co-sign for your loan if needed. Not only do our loan companies help patients with less than perfect credit, they reward patients that do have perfect credit. With perfect credit we can offer 12 months interest free, as determined by the finance company.

Co-applicant for financing plastic surgery

+1

There are options for patients who do not initially qualify for financing. If you are not approved individually many companies will allow co-applicants to strengthen your application. These co-applicants can be family members, members of the household, or friends. Try a co-applicant it may make the difference.
