Tummy tuck

I suggest waiting and saving up.  Plan on saving more than the cost of the surgery.  Aways plan for possible complications.

"Lay Away" Plan for Cosmetic Surgery

If financing is not an option you could discuss with your surgeon a "lay away plan".  Our office has done this once or twice in past years.  You pay the doctor's office a monthly sum, and when you have prepaid the fees fully, your surgical procedure will be performed.  It gives you an incentive to save the money and removes the temptation to use the funds for other purposes.

Financing tummy tuck with $3000 down payment

Due to the high rate of patients being badly behind on credit payments, surgeons are reluctant to fund these financing options. There are many companies available for credit. Many surgeons will make these available to you at the time of the consultation or may even have it listed on their websites under financing.

Financing cosmetic surgery

If you have tried to borrow the money through a financing company and not had good luck with that, one way is to open an account and put aside money month by month till you save enough for the procedure.

Tummy Tuck With Financing

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 wish

Tummy tuck payment options

Most surgeons will have a finance company that will do payment options for surgical procedures, I don't know any surgeon that caries his own financing.  You will need to qualify for this loan as you would for any other loan.  The better risk you are for a loan the lower the interest rate.  You have a good start for the cost of the procedure so you will need to wait and save up the money or ask your surgeon what finance companies might be available to do a payment plan.

Best Wishes
