Can I Afford Plastic Surgery?
Many of us would love to get a surgical cosmetic makeover, but hold back from even considering it, because we may be conditioned to believe that plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments are luxuries reserved only for the very wealthy. But the reality is, regular people from all walks of life are now finding it easier and easier to get the surgical procedures and cosmetic improvements that they seek by finding creative ways to finance or pay for their surgical treatments.
At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we strive to keep our services affordable to all interested patients by offering a special membership with discount pricing as well as specially-priced package offers that provide cost-saving options by combining selected procedures.
At your complimentary initial consultation with Dr. Bachilo, our team will design a treatment plan for you, discuss the cost of your treatment plan, and explain all of your payment options.
Below, we cover the gamut of options that our office provides to keep payment terms flexible and affordable for all of our patients.
Cash is king, and we definitely accept cash payments whenever our patients can afford it. Particularly for lower-priced procedures, this is the most worry-free form of payment, as it eliminates any potential interest payments in the future.
You will also be rewarded for choosing cash as your payment method: our facility provides a 5% discount on the surgeon’s fee for procedures that are paid in cash!
We accept all major credit cards in our office, such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Some patients prefer to use credit cards for the down payment to get points, miles, cash back, and etc. and the rest either pay in cash or finance.
If paying in cash is beyond your possibilities right now, there are still ways that you can get that desired procedure while keeping your budget balanced. In particular, there are several financing companies that provide special credit plans to cover health and wellness treatments and help you pay for these procedures via affordable monthly payments.
At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, you can finance your procedure using any of the following payment plan options.
· Alphaeon Credit
The Alphaeon Credit card is designed to cover medical procedures and is widely accepted by medical professionals such as dentists, dermatologists, ophthalmologists, and plastic surgeons. Alphaeon offers a wide variety of monthly payment plans to help you pay for those procedures that you want when you want them.
With Alphaeon, you can select your preferred payment option from the following payment plans:
- Budget plans with monthly payments as low as $99
- Zero interest if you pay for your procedure in full within a period of 6 or 12 months
- 24, 36, 48, and 60-month plans with low finance charges
Alphaeon offers special financing options on purchases over $250, and you may qualify for a credit line of up to $25,000, allowing you to use and reuse your card as often as you need it.
CareCredit is one of the original and most established medical creditors in the business, with over 250,000 enrolled health and wellness providers across the United States.
The CareCredit Card is different from a regular credit card in two ways:
- The CareCredit Card is only usable to pay for medical expenses not covered by health insurance; and
- CareCredit offers special financing options and promotional offers that are not available with other credit cards.
Once you’ve been approved for credit, you can use your CareCredit Card to pay for medical, dental, vision, or veterinary procedures at any facility that accepts CareCredit.
Care Credit offers various payment terms:
- On purchases of $200 or more, you may take advantage of promotional 6, 12, 18 or 24-month payment plans with no-interest. As long as you make minimum monthly payments on time, and pay off the full amount by the promotional expiration date, no interest will accrue on your balance.
- You may also opt for longer-term financing for periods of 24, 36, 48 or 60-months with Reduced APR as long as you pay an established, fixed monthly payment on time until the balance is paid in full.
