I am a 38-year old single mother of two children, one child is 14-yrs old and the other is 4-yrs old.
Background: I have wanted a tummy tuck, after the birth of my 4-year old daughter, but since my credit wasn’t in good standing to get a loan, I had to wait and build my credit and/or save the amount needed to get the procedure done. In November 2010, I choose Dr. Shamhram Salemy, M.D, a plastic surgeon, in Seattle, Washington. When I met with Dr. Salemy, he was very professional, and polite. He also answered all 49 of my questions, had great reviews and references. Dr. Salemy was the perfect person to do my surgery. In June 2011, I was able to get a loan through “Medical Loan or Surgery Loans” (they are both the same company). First, I secured the loan for the surgery, and then contacted Dr. Salemy’s office to schedule the surgery. Unfortunately, Dr. Salemy’s office said they did not accept Surgery Loans, they only accepted CareCredit. Man, I was pissed; but to make a long story short, in order to get to receive CareCredit your credit score has to be 700 or higher, and mine was between 679 and 681.
After searching of months trying to find a doctor the fit my criteria, I located Dr. Sean Younai, in Encino, California. Dr. Younai, had great reviews and references, was very professional and polite, and his office took the Surgery Loans. My surgery is scheduled for March 15, 2012. I am very nervous and excited at the same time. I financed the entire amount, minus the $1,000 deposit to hold the surgery date. The reason why I financed the entire amount was because of the cost for an out of state procedure. The air fare, taxi’s, hotel, ect.
Procedure: High Tension Abdominoplasty with Liposuction of your Flanks, lower Back, Lateral/Outer Chest, and Inner Thighs
Cost: $11,700(procedure) + $2,000 (air fare, taxi’s, hotel, ect) Dr. Sean Younai's office, match the quote I received from Dr. Salemy’s office. I was really thankful they did or I would be unable to get this procedure. Dr. Sean Younai's office staff went beyond the call of duty to help me.
