PAYMENT BEFORE YOUR SURGERY

Surgery Savings Plans

A special-purpose savings fund may be a good option for patients who want to save up the funds to pay for their surgery before having their operation. To save on mortgage interest, you can also choose to pay your mortgage ‘down’ in advance; then redraw funds from your early payments when you’re ready to have your surgery.

Payment Plans, Medical Credit and Finance Options

Quality Plastic Surgery can be costly. Our Plastic Surgeons don’t cut corners when it comes to patient safety and we strive to provide optimal results. There are a number of reputable external independent finance companies that may be able to help some surgery patients who do not have the money to pay for their surgery up-front.

  4. Withdrawing from your Super Fund to pay for Surgery.
