Everyone deserves to feel confident in their skin, and for many people, plastic surgery plays a role in making that possible. Because cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance in most cases, it can take some planning to comfortably afford the procedure you’ve been thinking about. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can save without cutting corners.
In this post, I’ll share a few money-saving tips for anyone considering cosmetic plastic surgery here in Idaho Falls.
Invest in a surgeon who gets it right the first time.
A surefire way to overspend on surgery is having multiple revisions done because your first result was not satisfactory. It’s common for less experienced surgeons to offer deep discounts on procedures because they do not have the skill or history of patient satisfaction to justify a higher price.
While these lower rates may be tempting, keep in mind that plastic surgery is not something you should shop for by price. Shopping by expertise will be much more worth your investment in the long run.
Take advantage of financing.
Healthcare lending companies like CareCredit® and GreenSky® offer affordable financing plans so you can pay for your surgery in installments. These programs work like credit cards specifically for cosmetic procedures, and Freeman Plastic Surgery happily works alongside them to make your procedure more attainable.

Watch for specials or loyalty programs.
Find a practice you trust and follow their social media accounts or sign up for their newsletters so you can be the first to learn about specials. Many practices offer seasonal discounts or rewards programs as a thank you for your loyalty. All you need to do is sign up or click “follow” and keep an eye out for exclusive deals.

Resist the urge to practice plastic surgery tourism.
You may have heard tales of people traveling to other countries to get lower prices on surgeries, but this is not a risk worth taking. Many countries do not have the same regulations or certifications as the U.S. These varying quality standards put you more at risk for complications or unsatisfactory results that you ultimately will have to pay more to fix. That’s not to mention the long-term effects on your body that may not be reversible at any price.
Choose a practice with integrity.
Choose a surgeon or med spa team who will recommend only treatments that will benefit you, rather than upselling you on services you do not need or do not feel sure about. Before you schedule an appointment, read reviews of potential practices to learn what real patients have to say about how they were treated during their visits.
