Paying for Buccal Fat Removal

Although cosmetic surgery is becoming increasingly popular and more openly available, this is not necessarily a reflection on how much money many of us have lying around to spend on elective surgery, which can also incur further expense if anything goes wrong.

The fact remains that cosmetic surgery, in terms of cost, is not necessarily something that some of us can step into lightly. However there is light at the end of the tunnel. Nowadays there are multiple options open to you financially if you wish to have surgery but can’t necessarily afford to pay for it up front.

Get a Loan

In 2007 an estimated £1.4 billion of loans given out in Britain were used to finance plastic surgery, so this option is becoming pretty common. That said taking on any kind of debt is not something to be taken lightly, particularly if you’re putting any of your assets at risk by doing this. If you are going to put yourself into debt, make sure it’s for something you really want. 

Use a Payment Plan

Most surgeries now offer some kind of payment plan to make cosmetic procedures more affordable. The way this usually works is that you pay back a predetermined amount of money that you can afford, each month.  Most reputable clinics in the UK now offer this kind of payment deal.

With this method it is worth shopping round to find a good interest deal; especially as some clinics charge 0% for a set period of time, which is worth considering.

Go Abroad

As with loans, this is becoming an increasingly popular method of paying, or cheapening, the cost of cosmetic surgery. Some people will even travel as far as the US or India to do this. It seems that increasingly often the cost of a two week get-a-way with surgery is cheaper than the surgery alone in the UK.

One of the biggest downsides to surgery abroad, as a cheaper alternative, is that you will probably be unable to see your surgeon or clinic before you go. This is a risk, which can be limited by going with a surgeon you have had personally recommended to you or about whom you are able to find a lot of information over the internet, including personal accounts.

It pays to be cautious with any cosmetic surgery, but particularly if you are going abroad. Remember your top priority should be finding someone reputable, qualified and dedicated to doing a good job. Also note that to be able to undercut other surgeries, some clinics do cut corners, most often in the after-care package. If you are going for a cheaper clinic you need to ensure you fully understand what your quote does and does not cover.

Above everything else do not go with any surgeon who you can not see is fully qualified. This can be confusing as there are many different surgical qualifications; however an easy way to select a good quality surgeon is by looking only at those who are members of The General Medical Council  (GMC), The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) or The British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS). These surgeons are always completely qualified and are often reputable and work in safe and professionally managed clinics.

Save up

This may sound obvious, but this really is the easiest and best way to pay for your surgery. Over going abroad it is less risky, over taking a loan you avoid becoming in debt and over paying through a payment plan you only pay for the surgery and care you receive, and not any interest.
