Do I have to request a loan for the full amount of my plastic surgery purchase?
No, patient financing companies will usually lend you all or a portion of your plastic surgery costs if you so desire. It might be wise to put a portion of your procedure costs on your credit card and the balance through a loan, depending upon your credit card interest rate.

The rates you will be able to obtain from a patient finance company depend upon several factors, including: your application, occupation, employment term, and credit report. Sometimes, the rates you can obtain from a patient finance company are better than your credit cards. For example, there are special programs, such as, 90 days same as cash. Typically, interest rates range from 5.99% to 27.99%.
Can I obtain patient financing online?

Can I obtain credit if I have a low credit rating?
There are plastic surgery finance companies that will approve people with low credit ratings. People who have had short sales, have filed bankruptcy or simply have a poor credit rating can investigate patient finance companies online. Before completing an application, ask the company if they finance people with low credit ratings. Some may fulfill your request and others may not.

This is not a requirement, but it’s a good idea to select your plastic surgeon first. Remember that your safety and security in having the procedure comes first.
