Financing Your Plastic Surgery

by

So you’ve made the decision to have plastic surgery. You’ve interviewed surgeons. You’ve researched the procedures that you are contemplating. Maybe the only thing that is holding you back is money.

Consider this­: Know up front that cosmetic surgery will need to be paid in full prior to the procedure. If a lump sum is not an option – and for most people, it isn’t – there are two other financing options to look at.

Layaway – Not just for Kmart. All kidding aside, some of our most financially savvy patients, who are eager to get going, plan ahead. He or she picks a date in the future (within 6 months) and we work individually to take payment bi-weekly or monthly until the procedure is paid in full. Then, come surgery time, all that is left to think about is how to relax after surgery and take care of yourself so that you heal quickly.

Another financing option is called Care Credit, offered through GE Capital Retail Bank and applying is quick, easy and secure. Plus you’ll know within minutes if you qualify. Care Credit allows you to pay over time, instead of a lump sum prior to surgery. They even have a no-interest option if paid off in six months. You can finance all of your procedure, or if you have some cash saved that you’d like to use, Care Credit can cover the remainder. Care Credit offers a payment calculator on their website so that you can see right away what your monthly payments would be.

“We know not everyone can handle the cost up front for cosmetic surgery, so we have options for you. My goal is to make it possible for you to achieve the goals you have set out for yourself. My staff will help you with the multiple financing options we have available, and you can then focus on your procedure and recovery.”
