Financing for Plastic Surgery?

I'm a college student and I'm looking for ways to finance my surgery. I wasnt to go with Dr. Jimmerson since he is closer to me. I stay in N.C. Can I get a personal loan from a bank? Can I get a credit card? What ways other than credit care and medicalfinance can I use to pay for this surgery? The price is $8,800. I plan to pay for half myself but the other half I'm going to need help with

Financing for Plastic Surgery?

Thank you for the question.

In our practice, we use Care Credit as well as other companies; they have been used by our patients with no problems.  They do have different rates so please make sure you get all of the information you need prior to signing up with any financing company.

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, psychosocial, and financial “stable state” prior to considering elective plastic surgery. Best wishes.
