The vast majority of Plastic surgeons offer their patients various ways to finance Mommy Make-Over and other Cosmetic Surgery procedures. Understandably, some sources of finance may be better than others. If you have a good credit score you MAY be able to get reasonable credit terms as a loan if you did not borrow it on your credit card. If you have a poor credit history you really should consider if looking better is worth going deeper in debt.

Philosophically, we would all differ on what is or is not worth borrowing for. I think that an education, a home to live in and surgery to improve your appearance are MUCH better ways to spend your money than clothes, sports events or vacations. But - you decide.

Financing for mommy makeover

+1
Patients in our practice can pay cash, charge the surgery on their credit card or they can use a company called Care Credit to obtain a loan for the surgery.  If a loan is obtained, the payments are set up with the credit company.   They offer six months with no interest or 24 or 36 month options with interest.  Most surgical offices offer some type of financing but not necessarily all offices.

Best of luck,

The Majority of Plastic Surgeons Offer Some Type of Financing Program for Cosmetic Patients

+1

For many patients, cosmetic surgery would not be possible without some type of financing. For this reason, the vast majority of plastic surgeons offer some type of financing program. With the availability of this type of program, plastic surgeons don’t typically take installment payments. They usually require full payment before surgery is performed.
In our practice, we almost exclusively utilize Care Credit. This is currently the most commonly used source of plastic surgery financing in the United States. The company is run by GE capital financing. It’s reputable and you can apply for a loan online. It takes approximately thirty minutes to get a response. In some cases, you may be able to get a twelve month interest free loan.
Financing is not for everyone; make sure you understand the fine print in your contract. Don’t take on more than you can handle. At some point, you will have to repay the loan. It’s important to have all your financing questions answered before proceeding with cosmetic surgery. In our office, we have financial consultants who can help you with this very important issue.

Thank you for your question.

Each office differs with how they work with financing companies and exactly what they do in regards to "financing through the office".  You would need to visit with some board certified plastic surgeons and see exactly what their process is...

There are many financing companies that you can apply with online who will pay the surgeon prior to surgery and then you will have monthly payments to them.  

Best Wishes!

Financing Options for Mommy Makeovers

+1

Most plastic surgeons offer financing options.  CareCredit is commonly used as well as Chase and Med Loans.  You can apply on line before your consultation to see whether you can be approved.  Depending on the terms, the interest rate will vary.  Talk to your plastic surgeon and see which plan she/he accepts.  Mommy makeover is expensive; but if you are a good candidate for it, I think the procedure will be worth it.  Good luck to you.
