Financing surgery

Hello and thank you for your question. Many surgeons offices offer finance options.  More important than that is finding a surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  Make sure you specifically look at before and after pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon and evaluate their results.   The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.

There are lots of options for financing surgery

Even though there are a number of different options for financing surgery, if you have your heart set on iCare Financial, then you should visit their website.  Most vendors like that have a provider locator function, and they can help you locate a provider in your area that is on their roster.  Be sure that you look specifically for board certified plastic surgeons, as there may be a number of other types of surgeons, all of whom may claim to be "board certified," that offer breast augmentation.  The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only recognized board which certifies surgeons to perform cosmetic surgery of the breast.  In addition to being certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only generally recognized organization which certifies true plastic surgeons and has the term “Plastic Surgery” in its title, your surgeon should also participate in the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program administered by that board. This program requires that surgeons who participate continue to update their credentials and professional standing regularly, as opposed to practicing on a single lifetime certificate like those plastic surgeons who elect not to participate. To find further information about this program and any surgeons you might consider for your surgery, I suggest visiting these sites: abplsurg.org and abms.org. Good luck.

Looking for cosmetic surgeons that offer icare financial?

Thank you for the question. I would advise you against selecting your plastic surgeon primarily on the type of financing offered.   In other words, careful selection of plastic surgeon will be the most important decision you make; exactly what type of financing is offered should be extremely low on the list of criteria you should evaluate.

 

 Also, generally speaking, it is always in patients' best interests to achieve a certain degree of financial stability prior to undergoing elective surgery of any type. Patients should also keep in mind that additional surgery may be necessary in the short or long term, following the primary procedure that is being performed;  this additional surgery may be associated  out-of-pocket expenses. Again, best to achieve a physical, emotional, and financial “stable state” prior to considering elective plastic surgery. 



 When it comes to selection of plastic surgeon, I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. 

***Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Again, I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery or type of financing offered; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways.

Best wishes.

 

Breast Augmentation - Finding A Surgeon

Thank you for your question. More important than finding a surgeon who accepts icare financial, is finding a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who specializes in cosmetic breast procedures. The ASPS website will provide a list of properly trained surgeons in your area. You should go on several consultations and see who you like best. Ask to see a lot of before and after pictures of their work. Hope this helps.

Surgeons that offer iCare financial?

With a multitude of patient financing programs available, you will find that not every office offers every financing solution, and this is a new one to me.  Rather than waiting for a response from the community on realself, assuming that someone in your stated geographic area will offer iCare and will respond, you may have more luck contacting iCare directly as they should be able to point you in the right direction.  Best of luck!
