If you are considering plastic surgery, cost is always an important consideration. While surgery must be affordable you must also consider the final results and the effect they will have in the long term. It is often tempting to have your procedure done by the least expensive surgeon and, while cost is important, perhaps the most expensive surgery is the one that needs to be done twice. It is smart to evaluate cost together with experience and other recommendations to have the best chance of achieving your goals.
Dr. Scott E. Newman provides various financing options through the Advanced Plastic Surgery Center in New York City, New York, Long Island and Westchester, and can provide information to prospective patients during a consultation or through this website.
Does Insurance Cover Plastic Surgery?
Most reconstructive plastic surgery procedures are considered medically necessary and are covered by insurance. Cosmetic procedures are not typically covered by insurance. There are some procedures that fall into a ‘grey-area’ and may be covered by insurance in certain situations. If you have a question bout insurance coverage then Dr. Newman’s staff can typically give you more information.
Options to Pay for Cosmetic Surgery
If plastic surgery cost is not covered by insurance, which is usually the case, you still have several options to consider. One of these is a standard credit card. Although interest rates on credit cards tend to be rather high, this can still provide you with a flexible payment option that you can include in your ongoing budget. Sometimes, if you have a special card with a low interest rate, the interest might even be less than with other financing options.
In addition, Dr. Newman works with private financing companies that, though not directly affiliated with the Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, may provide financing of cosmetic surgery costs for Dr. Newman’s patients. The Advanced Plastic Surgery Center staff can supply application forms to help get you started on your financing request. Some requests can be managed completely online.

We would be happy to answer any questions you may have or to schedule a complimentary initial plastic surgery consultation.
