Breast Implant Revision Financing
An experienced surgeon can help you return to your natural look, maintain the appearance your breast augmentation, or drop or add a size with breast implant removal or replacement. In order to reach their aesthetic goals, many patients seeking breast implant revision apply for a financing plan that allows them to pay for their breast implant revision surgery over time.
Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss breast implant revision financing with you in detail during your personal consultation. Some doctors offer in-house financing options designed to make your experience as convenient as possible, while others accept common third-party methods of payment such as CareCredit®.
While you do not need to know the precise cost of your procedure in order to be approved for financing, you will likely be asked to provide a rough estimation of the price of surgery at the time of your credit application. The cost of breast implant revision surgery depends on a number of variables, including:
- The geographic location of the practice
- The cosmetic surgeon's fees
- How complicated the procedure will be
In order to provide the most accurate information on your application, it is recommended that you choose your cosmetic surgeon prior to seeking financing.
In most cases, costs for breast implant revision surgery will not be covered by your insurance provider. However, exceptions may be made when the surgery is necessary for health reasons. For example, if your breast implants have caused complications such as capsular contraction, or have ruptured in a manner that poses a health risk, your insurance provider may be more likely to assist with the expenses.
Some cosmetic surgery practices have staff on hand who are experienced with filling out and submitting insurance claims; contact your cosmetic surgeon's office to learn more about these services. In addition, your doctor may be able to give you important advice about whether your case is eligible for coverage.
Endorsed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, CareCredit® offers flexible financing plans and features multiple payment options, including no-interest financing or low minimum monthly payments.
To make the financing process even more convenient, CareCredit® does not charge up-front costs, pre-payment penalties, or fees. However, the plastic surgery practice you choose for your breast implant revision must accept CareCredit® financing in order for you to be able to use this plan. First, ask the cosmetic surgery practice you have chosen if they will accept CareCredit® as a breast implant revision financing option. Then, fill out CareCredit®'s online application, which will let you know if you qualify within minutes.
Applying for Financing
Many financing plans now allow you to apply over the internet, greatly reducing the amount of time necessary to determine eligibility. In most cases, you will need to state the estimated cost of your breast implant revision procedure and provide some information about yourself. Although you can apply even if you have not yet chosen a plastic surgeon, accurate financing is more easily attainable once you have discussed the cost of breast implant revision surgery with your doctor. Within minutes of submitting your online application, you will know if you qualify for breast implant revision financing with the plan for which you applied.
