So, you think you can’t afford Plastic Surgery?Posted on June 5, 2017
Plastic surgery in most circles is considered a luxury purchase. If you were to ask patients who have had cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed , if they believe it was worth it; overwhelmingly patients would say that they are satisfied with their decision. The affordability of cosmetic plastic surgery is an extremely personal decision. For many, it is not a question of whether they can afford plastic surgery, the real determining factor is based on their desires to have certain procedures performed. For some patients, a face that looks markedly older then their counterparts in the workplace, can be not only emotionally devastating ,but could also have a financial impact on their future earnings. For other patients who may have recently been divorced, a sagging midsection and sagging breasts could be of the deterrent that will prevent them from beginning a new life and possibly finding a new relationship. Dr. Kim shares during the initial consultation with the patient that plastic surgery will not solve personal problems or emotional problems. However, procedures like breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, and facelift can increase a patients self-esteem and self-confidence. This could help them to make better, more beneficial lifestyle choices. The affordability of cosmetic plastic surgery is better now than ever before. For some patients financing through Dr. Kims office using an outside agency can be very beneficial. For other patients, using a combination of savings and credit cards is better solution for their budget. As the holidays approach some patients find it beneficial to ask for gift cards for donations toward the cosmetic procedures that they desire. It is also feasible for some patients to set up a fund specifically for the cosmetic surgery procedure they are considering. While it may not be the first choice for most patients since the money has to be saved completely in order to have the surgery, it is better than not having the surgery at all. Dr. Kim’s staff is very helpful in assisting patients with creative and traditional approaches for ways to afford the investment necessary for plastic surgery. Patients who are considering plastic surgery should contact Dr. Kims office and schedule a consultation to see which procedures are best for them.
