Cosmetic Surgery and Financing
Did you know… that you could finance any type of cosmetic surgery? Through flexible payment plan options provided by companies like CareCredit, those who qualify can also take advantage of their zero or low interests rates as well. Upon discussing cosmetic surgery options, CareCredit understands that “it’s something you’ve always wanted to do, but something else was always there to hold you back.” Now, however, “CareCredit can help you move forward with getting the procedure you’ve always wanted.”
Now that you know you can finance the types of surgeries you want, you can start thinking about which procedures are right for you. As the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery notes, “Cosmetic surgery is a serious decision. Whether you are considering a full face lift or Botox, liposuction or breast implants, cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly.” They also mention that “plastic surgery is intended to correct dysfunctional areas of the body and is reconstructive in nature” and “can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body. Because treated areas function properly but lack aesthetic appeal, cosmetic surgery is elective.”
When seriously considering plastic surgery, however, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that “plastic surgery involves many choices. The first and most important is selecting a surgeon you can trust.” About breast augmentation, they explain that this procedure “involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.” In relation to rhinoplasty, however, they note that “surgery of the nose improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.”
