How To Afford Plastic Surgery Cosmetic

Published at 02/04/2012 05:48:48


In almost every situation, plastic surgery cosmetic processes are considered as an elective operation which means that people have to volunteer to have the job done. It is also one of the most expensive procedures in medical practice depending on the reputation of the plastic surgeon, the institution and the job to be done. If you wish to undergo plastic surgery cosmetic operation but have limited budget, you have to do more research to get the best results.

Step 1

Do your research. Begin by sourcing out some of the best plastic surgery cosmetic doctors in your area or in neighboring states. Start looking from your very own city by listing down the top three surgeons, then move on to neighboring cities, also listing down the top three names in plastic surgery cosmetic jobs in these areas. Take time to call or visit the office then indicate the particular procedure you want to undergo. Get the estimated prices and have yourself assessed to determine if you're qualified for the procedure. It will also help a lot to know the particular methods that will be done and the advanced equipment that will be used. In some cases, the type of equipment and tools used will affect the price.

Step 2

Consider overseas privileges. Some people find plastic surgery cosmetic procedures in the United States, Canada or Europe very expensive. There are now several plastic surgery spas and packages offered in many other parts of the world at a relatively cheaper price. Countries like Thailand, Singapore, Hongkong, India and the Philippines are investing a lot in medical tourism and offer full packages for the procedure. These packages usually include the doctor fees, transportation and plane tickets, hotel and resort accommodations and meals.

Step 3

Ask for discounts. Some plastic surgery cosmetic providers will provide you with large discounts if you opt for more than one procedure at a time. For example, a clinic might offer liposuction for $5,000 and a tummy tuck for $3,000 separately. If you opt to have these two jobs done at the same time, the surgeon might be able to offer a package costing only $6,000 to $7,000. These all depends on the clinic and available packages. The discounts usually apply for procedures that are done on the same area, such as having a nose job and lip job at the same time or undergoing tummy liposuction and buttock liposuction at the same time.

Step 4

Get financing. There are special medical financing groups that offer loans and financing for individuals who wish to undergo plastic surgery cosmetic procedures. You will have to gather the requirements such as your birth certificate, medical history, physical assessment, payslips and evidence of income. This is very much similar to a bank loan, except that the groups focus on medical procedure loans. The financing company will provide you with a lump sum of money to afford the surgery and you will be provided with a repayment plan that you pay off every month with interest. Whatever you do, never rush into plastic surgery cosmetic activities. Do not compromise your health or seek help from an inexperienced professional to avoid risks.
