Payment Options

Health Insurance Coverage
Most cosmetic surgery procedures are not covered by health insurances. There are some instances where exceptions may apply although coverage is usually offered under very strict guidelines and conditions being met. Some examples of procedures that have been covered under such strict guidelines are: breast reduction and panniculectomy surgeries. Since each case is different we have an insurance specialist that will assist you in answering any questions you may have regarding insurance coverage for your procedure.

Patient Financing
Patient financing programs are available! There are many different patient financing options available through our financing program. We encourage you to call our offices at 321-951-2639 or contact us for details and information on how you can have your surgery covered through financing.
