Financing Plastic Surgery Costs By on September 08, 2012

Plastic Surgery Costs MinneapolisFor many people, plastic surgery represents an investment in themselves and in their happiness that simply cannot be measured by dollars and cents. This is why the team of professionals at our plastic surgery practice in Minneapolis, Mesna Plastic Surgery, tries to make plastic surgery of an exceptional standard as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. We understand that, now more than ever, people are having to watch their finances and work within a certain budget. We want our patients to make informed, confident decisions regarding plastic surgery based more on their personal needs and goals than on their financial circumstances.

Of course, plastic surgery is not cheap. At our practice in Minneapolis, plastic surgery costs are competitive, but also reflective of the high standards of service, safety, and technology we hold ourselves to. Before deciding that plastic surgery is an expense you cannot possibly afford, we urge you to contact our practice to learn about your financing options. You may be surprised by what we can do to accommodate you, regardless of your budget.

Will Insurance Cover My Procedure?

Many of our patients ask us whether their medical insurance policy will cover any or all of their plastic surgery. Generally speaking, elective surgical procedures - those procedures that are not considered medically necessary - are not covered by most insurance plans. However, certain plastic surgery procedures may be interpreted as being medically necessary, even though their benefits are also aesthetic. Take, for instance, eyelid surgery. If a patient’s vision is being impaired by sagging skin above the eyes, then eyelid surgery may be covered by that patient’s insurance plan. Likewise, rhinoplasty may be covered if it is performed primarily to correct a breathing problem, even though the patient may emerge with a nose more suitable to his or her face. For the most part, however, patients wishing to undergo surgery for primarily cosmetic reasons should expect to be responsible for the entire cost of their procedures.


CareCredit® is a program offered by General Electric to cover the costs of elective surgical procedures and other procedures not covered by insurance. By securing a loan through CareCredit®, it is possible to pay for your surgery up front and then make monthly payments to the lender. At our plastic surgery practice in Minneapolis, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, face lift, breast lift, tummy tuck, and other cosmetic procedures can be financed through CareCredit®. Procedures can also be paid for with any major credit card.

Remember that plastic surgery has the potential to make your life immeasurably better if you achieve the results you desire. The best way to ensure that you achieve those results is to entrust your plastic surgery to a skilled, experienced surgeon such as Dr. Gregory Mesna. It is important to select the right surgeon the first time around, as opposed to selecting the surgeon that offers the lowest price for a certain procedure. It is far more cost-effective to have your desired surgery performed correctly the first time than to have less-than-satisfactory results that require further surgeries to repair.
