Financing for Tummy Tuck
There are a few companies which will finance aesthetic surgical procedures, including tummy tucks. The best known is CareCredit which is owned by GE. You can check on the web site to see if they will accept you and the particulars regarding finance rate, etc.

Tummy Tuck with No Money Upfront
Many plastic surgeons (including myself) work with 3rd party financing companies such as Care Credit that can provide payment plans including interest free programs. Some centers provide internal financing; however, the quality and safety of these centers widely vary.
Financing plastic surgery
You should go through a company like Care Credit which can help you finance the surgery. No good plastic surgeon will do the surgery without payment in full up front.
Financing Cosmetic Surgery
There is no one who will do surgery like a tummy tuck without up-front payment. You, however, do not have to come up with the money out of your own funds. There are specific companies that lend money for such procedures. CareCredit (at CareCredit.com)is one such company that works with many Plastic Surgery offices and is very reliable. With them, you can pay for the procedure after the surgery. Many Plastic Surgery offices can also qualify you at the time of the consult. Another option is to create a savings account and treat it like a loan, meaning you religiously put a certain amount in it each month until you have enough for the surgery. This delays the procedure but saves you the finance charge.
Financing A Good Option
Another factor that should be considered is if liposuction is performed as well. If yes, this may be more or integrated into the price.
Tummy Tuck Financing?
I always suggest to my patients that they avoid debt as much as possible when undergoing elective plastic surgical procedures.
Costs of surgery will vary from region to region and from surgeon to surgeon; please don't make this the primary factor in choosing your plastic surgeon. Experience, safety record, and quality of work will matter most. it would be much better to save up have the procedure done correctly; revisionary surgery can be more costly (in many ways).
Financing options for tummy tuck
Unfortunately, history is the reason why surgeons request money up front. Too many patients in the past, have good intentions but do not follow up with their plans on payment, leaving the surgeon high and dry despite delivering the goods. Contact a surgeon with whom you would prefer to have a surgery and have him/her discuss financing options.
