Plastic surgeons make enough money, right, so surely they can afford to take on a pro bono case here and there, eh? Err, not so much. When you factor in the costs of any surgery, plus their time, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reputable plastic surgeon who’d be willing to hand out a free mommy makeover. No free lunch, ya dig?
But instead of searching for a free or even low-cost mommy makeover, give these solid finance tips a try to help make your procedure as affordable as possible.
Space ‘Em Out
Whoever said your mommy makeover had to happen in a single surgery? Sure, there are a plenty of pros to knocking ‘em all out at once, but if you’re having trouble coming up with the money for all four procedures on your wish list, start with one or two.
Pick the area(s) that are bugging you the most, and then add on the other procedures down the road as you can save.
Ask about Financing
Many plastic surgeons will offer financing solutions to help you pay off your mommy makeover in monthly installments. Ask about your options at your consultation and plan from there.
The average cost of a mommy makeover is $12,400.
Squirrel away Savings
Saving up for a mommy makeover might take longer than settling for a cheap mommy makeover done by a questionable surgeon, but believe me, it’ll be well worth the wait in the long run.
Set savings goals for yourself and try to hit your target every month. Before you know it, you’ll be closer and closer to getting the beach bod of your dreams.
