Pro-Bono Tummy Tuck?

Are there any surgeons who do probono surgerys for mothers who really need them. But cannot afford them.

Pro-Bono Tummy Tuck?

Thank you for the question. What patients may not realize is how much “overhead” is associated with performing good quality and safe elective plastic surgery. In other words, there are significant expenses, outside of surgeons fees, associated with these types of operations. Therefore, it will be unlikely that “pro bono” elective plastic surgery will be available to you.



Plastic surgeons offices can point you in the right correction when it comes to “credit” companies that work with patients seeking surgery. Although I understand your desire to have the procedure performed  soon, it is always in patients' 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. Again, best to achieve a physical, emotional and financial “stable state” prior to considering elective plastic surgery.
