Many plastic surgery patients finance their procedures and we have access to many finance options. Plastic surgery is an expensive investment, but you have to compare it relative to some other major purchases you make in your life. A very common purchase most people don’t bat an eye at is the purchasing of a new car – which may cost at least $20,000. Consider the amount of time you are able to enjoy your car on a day-to-day basis and compare that to the amount of time you are able to enjoy the results of your operation. Perhaps you should consider postponing the purchase of a new car for another half year to a year so you can afford your plastic surgery. Remember, $5,000 financed over three years represents a monthly payment of $142 while $20,000 financed over the same amount of time represents a monthly payment of $500. If you’re able to handle both payments in the same month, you can afford a new car and your operation. But if that monthly obligation becomes too much, perhaps you should consider postponing the purchase of a new car so you can enjoy the results of your plastic surgery procedure. Carefully consider your overall financial picture and make a smart decision.
