Can't afford breast surgery.

Thanks for your question.  Some patients will finance their operation over several years, but others prefer to delay surgery then pay for the operation outright, to avoid interest charges.

I can't afford a boob job. What can I do?

Breast augmentation is considered cosmetic surgery.  There may be a medical school near you that has a residency training program and you might be able to have a resident do your surgery. You would still have to pay for the implants, the OR and the anesthesia.

Affordability of breast augmentation

Thank you for your question.
I understand your reason and desire.

You have several options:
1)Join a credit union and start putting some money away on a monthly basis just like a 
 "lay away plan". Before you know it using this mechanism and combining with below
  you will reach your goal!
2)Several financing options are available (Carecredit.com, Alphaeon.com,
   credit union,  etc)
   If your credit score is less than optimal, you can often get a co-signer.
3)Loma Linda University Plastic Surgery Dept has Plastic Surgeons in training and offer 
   reduced  fees to let the trainee perform your surgery. (909) 824-0800 ask for Plastic
   Surgery Training Office.
4)heard of but never known personally..... to start a "office fund" for your surgery where
   your Associates donate money to help offset the surgical fees

My best wishes,

Breast Augmentation I can't afford it what can I do?

Financing is the most popular way to pay for Breast Augmentation for those who can't afford the up front cost.  Care Credit is the most popular of these for financing your surgery.

Low-cost surgery

You may consider contacting the USC cosmetic surgery resident clinic. This is where a plastic surgery resident who is supervised by a board-certified plastic surgeon can perform your surgery. The surgery is often far more affordable. You would have to pay for the cost of implants, anesthesia, and a small fee for the operating room.  There is no fee for the surgeon.  Saline implants are also more affordable than silicone implants.

Breast augmentation - affordable

Thank you for your question. Most offices offer financing options for patients undergoing elective plastic surgery. Additionally, some training programs offer lower cost procedures to patients understanding you would be operated on by surgeons in the training program.  also you will find clinical studies in which participants will be reimbursed for the activity in the study. Our center is involved in one such study right now.  Please see the link below.

Self conscious about breast size

Beauty comes from within, regardless of breast size and shape.  There are "tricks" however, to use to help create the look you want.  Certain bras, such as the push up bra,  and clothing cuts will give the illusion of a fuller bust.

Save some money

Just delay and save. Almost all plastic surgery patients are not wealthy but they are motivated and save and save until they can afford it.
