Financing for Rhinoplasty

I'm so sorry to hear you've been bullied over this!  Obviously, the first step is to meet with a rhinoplasty specialist to see if you are, indeed, a candidate for surgery.  Get the important medical steps out of the way first and then see if there is a need for financing.  Many practices work with third-party companies to help patients who need it.  The important thing will be to find a surgeon who you trust. Everything else can be worked out as needed. Good luck!

Rhinoplasty Financing

I am very sorry to hear that you have been bullied and that you feel that you have a self-confidence issues as a result. I hope that you have taken advantage of the many services that are available to help you overcome some of your issues. Cosmetic surgery for your nose may help but it is never the only answer by itself.
If you chose to follow the surgery path, the first step is to see a rhinoplasty surgeon and see if you are a candidate for this surgery. A couple of consultations is also usually helpful. Almost all surgery offices will have financing options available for you and there are also a couple of on line options as well.
I hope that helps.
Best regards.

Financing a rhinoplasty procedure

 There are many options regarding financing a rhinoplasty procedure. Many practices allow the patient to make the payments, and then have their surgery. There are many third-party financing companies available to make personal loans to patients to help them with their financing needs. Each office usually has relationships with these different companies.
 The cost of a rhinoplasty is driven by 3 fees, which include time in the operating room, time under anesthesia, and the surgeon's fee for performing the rhinoplasty procedure. There will be differences in geography and experience of the surgeon. Shop quality, not price since this is your nose.

Rhinoplasty

Hello.  I think the first step is to consult with a surgeon in your area.  Candidacy for rhinoplasty is based on multiple factors.  After a thorough evaluation, you may discuss with your surgeon and his staff the logistics, such as scheduling and financing.  Hope this is helpful.  Best wishes.
