    Plastic Surgery Payment: Financing Your Next Procedure

    Last updated 2 years ago

    As cosmetic plastic surgery continues to grow in popularity among a diverse population of Americans, some plastic surgeons are making procedures easier to afford through a variety of payment and plastic surgery financing options. If you are considering plastic surgery and are interested in learning more about how to pay for it, talk to your plastic surgeon about the practice's payment policies and options available to patients.               

    • Out of Pocket: For patients considering plastic surgery, payment is usually made out-of-pocket or through a financing plan. If you know you are interested in a particular procedure, you can begin setting aside the funds to pay for it in full before the procedure. Doing so can help you avoid making interest payments afterwards.
    • Insurance Policies: In general, insurance companies consider cosmetic surgical procedures like tummy tucks and face lifts to be elective procedures, which are not covered by insurance. There are a few procedures, however, that may qualify as medical necessities under your insurance policy. Rhinoplasty for broken noses and a deviated septum may be covered by insurance, as may breast reduction surgery. Your plastic surgeon can write letters of support to your insurance provider to help secure coverage if necessary.  
    • Financing Programs: Ask your plastic surgeon if his or her practice participates in or offers financing plans for a procedure. Medical financing programs generally have lower interest rates than credit cards, and interest may be waived if the balance is paid in full within a certain time period. Houston’s Dr. Scott Yarish, for example, offers medical financing on both surgical and medical spa services to help his patients afford and achieve their desired results.

    3 Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Regardless of age or gender, many people desire to feel comfortable in their own bodies and to look as young as they feel, leading some to consider cosmetic surgery. While plastic surgery is a cosmetic option commonly associated with women, more men are also choosing surgical alternatives to achieve a certain appearance. In fact, reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that men underwent over one million cosmetic procedures in 2010. If you are interested in plastic surgery for males, talk to your plastic surgeon and read more about these popular procedures for men.

    1. Liposuction: Although a healthy lifestyle can help you lose weight and tone up, diet and exercise alone may not be enough to eliminate stubborn fat deposits in some. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes excess fat from under the skin and can be targeted to particular problem areas for males. Men, for example, deposit excess fat in different areas than do women, most commonly in the abdomen and back, also known as the “spare tire” region.
    2. Facelift: As we age, men and women alike begin to develop wrinkles and sagging skin. A common cosmetic surgical procedure to create the impression of youth, a facelift tightens the skin for a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Eyelid surgery is a popular supplementary treatment to a facelift that removes excess eyelid skin and bags, leaving men looking more alert and energetic.
    3. Rhinoplasty: On the face’s center and often one of the first things others notice about you, the nose can often draw unwanted attention to its shape or proportion. If you have a prominent nose or are looking to adjust its shape to better fit your features, talk to your plastic surgeon about rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty, or nose job, can address broken noses, unwanted bumps and an unflattering shape while maintaining a masculine facial appearance.
