Down Payment Applicable to the Augmentation Cost

The total cost of surgery will depend upon the type of anesthesia, skill found and experience of the surgeon. There’ll be regional differences. Approximate costs can be found on realself.com, and other websites such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Payment plans can be offered through Care Credit, local banks, credit cards, and other companies such as Prosper.  Some plans have 12-18 months interest free.

The valuable down payment that would be best accepted by your surgeon in order to setup your payment plan would likely best be determined with the surgeon's office that you choose for the procedure and their specific billing methods. Good luck

Surgery and booking

Each office is a bit different when it comes to putting down a deposit for booking the surgery. Best of luck with your scheduling.  We usually require a $1000 deposit and full payment at least 2-3 weeks prior to surgery.

Financing breast augmentation surgery…

Thank you for the question. I think that you will find that the answer will vary from one patient to another (mainly depending on each patient's financial situation).



 Generally speaking, it is always in patient's best interest 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.   


 Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.

Down payment for surgery.

This varies from practice to practice.  Many practices will request a partial payment to place you on the operating schedule.  The payment would be fully refundable if you cancel more than 3 weeks before surgery but only partial refundable if 2 weeks before surgery and not refundable if 1 week before surgery or is held in an account should you reschedule for the future.  It is usual to have the surgery fully paid for at least 2 weeks before the surgery date.

Thank you for your question. Remember, it is best to be seen in person by a double-board-certified plastic surgeon for precise diagnosis and treatment.
