Is Finance available for Liposuction?

Cosmetic Surgery Enquiry

Liposuction is an expensive treatment and as a result, it is imperative that you have your finance sorted before deciding that it is a treatment option. The best way to finance any surgery is to pay for it upfront, however this is not always possible and there are other options available to pay for your liposuction.

Getting an Accurate Cost

The first step to financing you liposuction is to get an accurate quotation for the cost. This will allow you to set a reasonable financial goal. The best way to get an accurate cost is to visit a few experienced surgeons for a consultation and ask for a quote. Many surgeons offer free consultations and doing this will allow you to have an accurate figure in mind. You should also ask about any extra costs and ensure that you will be able to fund these should you need to.

Saving for Liposuction

If it is possible, you should try to save up in advance of your treatment. In order to decide how much you can afford to save you should look at a bank statement from an average month. This will allow you to see your monthly income and your outgoings. You should highlight any outgoings that can be limited but should not be too restrictive with your budget. Once you have done this you will be able to see how much you can afford to set aside for liposuction each month. You should open a savings account and set up a direct debit to ensure that the money is separated from your normal account.

Liposuction on Credit Cards

If you are unable to save for your liposuction, or do not want to wait for your liposuction whilst you save you can pay for treatment on a credit card. If you are unable to save, you should be weary of this, as you will need to pay the card off quickly to avoid paying large amounts of interest. Many credit cards offer a period of 0 % interest, which gives you breathing space to pay for your liposuction without adding large amounts of interest. If you have a poor credit rating, you can get some credit cards but should avoid this as the high interest rates can lead you to pay much more for your surgery than the original cost.

Liposuction Finance Plans

Some clinics offer payment plans, which allow you to pay for your treatment over a set period of time. You can borrow enough to cover part of, or all of your surgery depending on your circumstances. This option gives you some flexibility as you can choose the length of the repayment schedule. However, the longer you take to pay for your treatment the more you will pay. With interest rates of up to 50 % APR the amount that you pay can soon become a lot more than the initial cost of surgery. Therefore, it is important that you work out how much you can afford to pay each month, and how long this will take.
