As patients contemplate surgery, they frequently need information about the various payment options and have questions about their potential insurance benefits. We hope the following information will be helpful. Our financial coordinators are readily available to meet with you personally to provide the specific information you desire. Please discuss all arrangements regarding payment of your account with us prior to scheduling your surgery.
Payment for cosmetic plastic surgery is due in full two weeks prior to your surgery. A 10% downpayment may be required the day you schedule your surgery. Non-surgical treatments, such as Ultherapy and injectables, are paid for in full at the time of service. We provide a number of payment options which may be used individually or combined according to your wishes.

The benefits paid by insurance companies for surgery vary greatly from carrier to carrier and plan to plan. Our knowledge and experience in dealing with insurance companies can be an important factor in assisting you to obtain the maximum benefits allowed under your insurance policy. We make every effort to determine in advance if insurance coverage for your surgical prodecure exists. We ascertain the projected insurance payment and the required patient responsibility, including deductible and co-payment. We do this because we believe you need to be as informed as possible regarding your insurance coverage prior to surgery. We request that payment be made for required any deductible and/or co-payment at the time of your initial consultation office visit. We also want you to be aware that you are ultimately responsible for the full payment any charges your insurance carrier applies to patient responsibility.
