People who are interested in undergoing plastic surgery are often so concerned about the cost that they put off a consultation with a surgeon for years, or even decide not to go through with it at all. What many prospective patients don't realize is that there are several financing options available to help bring plastic surgery within reach financially. To help with managing the cost, the San Diego Plastic Surgery Office of Dr. John Smoot, and Dr. Wendell Smoot offers 100 percent financing and advice on how to work with your insurance company to help pay for eligible procedures.
In most cases, medical insurance will not cover plastic surgery that is for cosmetic purposes only. Some surgeries that might be eligible for full or partial insurance coverage include:
To help each of our prospective patients afford plastic surgery, we offer a number of financing options at our San Diego Plastic Surgery Office. By partnering with a local credit union, we are able to offer 100 percent financing, not including the price of anesthesia. For your convenience, we also accept Visa®, Mastercard® and CareCredit®.
If you choose to pay for your plastic surgery through our financing plan, you'll appreciate that we've made every effort to simplify the process with as little paperwork as possible. After you complete the application, it is faxed to the financing company for processing. Then, when you come in for your pre-operative appointment, all the loan paperwork will be waiting for you there in the office.
We work with multiple lenders and offer a number of patient financing options. Before you apply, we encourage you to speak to one of our Patient Care Coordinators.

In nearly every beauty and health magazine, one can find advertisements of surgeons offering plastic surgery at a very low cost. Our San Diego patients should be aware that these seemingly low prices are often misleading, as the doctor is failing to include hidden fees for consultations or supplies. Sometimes, a surgeon will offer plastic surgery at a lower cost because he or she is trying to build up experience.
It is essential that you choose an experienced surgeon with the latest technology over a less-qualified doctor who will save you a few hundred dollars. You only have one face and only one body. High-quality plastic surgery, even at a slightly greater cost than discount surgeons, is what keeps our San Diego clientele returning to us for treatment.
