Plastic Surgery Loan

It’s estimated that almost 2 million cosmetic surgery procedures were undertaken in 2017 in the U.S alone. This is a large increase when compared to the previous year and it shows that more people are interested in having plastic surgery.

The trouble is that plastic surgery isn’t covered by your health insurance which means you have to pay out of your own pocket. Unless you have a lot of money saved up you might have to consider applying for a loan. The good news is you can potentially apply for the best plastic surgery loan Phoenix has and have your application approved.

The Top Plastic Surgery Procedures

Some of the most common plastic surgery procedures are:

  • Breast augmentation with almost 300,400 procedures carried out in 2017
  • Liposuction with almost 247,000 procedures carried out in 2017
  • Rhinoplasty (Nose reshaping) with just under 220,000 procedures carried out in 2017
  • Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) with almost 219,000 procedures carried out in 2017
