Cosmetic surgery can be an excellent investment in an individual’s well being. We understand though, that financial considerations can sometimes be an obstacle to achieving this goal. Being sensitive to the fact that different patients may have different needs, we provide the following payment options:

Financing is also available through American HealthCare Lending, a premier financing company in the cosmetic surgery industry. Click here for more information.


Cash/Check: If you like, you may pay with a personal check. Payment in full is due two weeks prior to surgery.


Credit Cards: We also accept payment two weeks prior to surgery with the following credit cards — Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express.

The distinction between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is important for our patients to understand because they impact on many insurance company reimbursement policies. Most insurance carriers cover reconstructive procedures for functional restoration. Most do not cover procedures performed purely for cosmetic reasons. How a particular surgical procedure is classified (i.e, cosmetic or reconstructive) depends upon the reason the surgery is being performed. Rhinoplasty performed to change the shape of the nose is considered cosmetic. Rhinoplasty performed to change the shape of the nose following traumatic deformity is reconstructive.


Corrective surgery performed to remove or minimize the effects of scarring usually provides cosmetic improvement. Insurance carriers, however, may recognize these procedures as reconstructive in nature because scars are abnormal formations that develop on the body as a result of injury or illness.
