No insurance company will pay for a cosmetic procedure, however some procedures are not considered cosmetic if there is medical necessity. Cosmetic surgery is usually considered a surgery that is preformed strictly to improve the way a person feels about their physical appearance and self-esteem. If you are curious if a procedure is considered medically necessary or would be covered by insurance, you can always call our office.
We have two financing options: Care Credit and Prosper. You will need to qualify, which can be easily done in the office.
Yes, there are discounts if multiple procedures are done, 2nd and 3rd procedures are discounted. Discounts are given based on what types of procedures are combined.

The more people you refer the more you earn towards a procedure. Call us to see what promotions we are currently running as well!

You will get prescription medication electronically within a week prior to your surgery date.
