If they’re being honest, most people would admit they’re not completely happy with what they see in the mirror and would like to nip and tuck a few imperfections. However, cosmetic surgery can be pricey and depending on where you are in the socioeconomic scheme of things, elective procedures may not be in the budget. So, how far would you go to get the body you want?
This Mom Did WHAT?
The New York Times recently published a story about a Queens woman charged with stealing money from her daughter to pay for plastic surgery. The story states that the mom stole over $65,000 from her 11-year-old daughter’s medical malpractice settlement which was supposed to be held for the girl until she reached the age of 18.
According to authorities, the mom created fake documents claiming she needed to money from her daughter’s account so her daughter could have operations that never happened. Instead, the mother allegedly used the money to pay for vacations and plastic surgery, including liposuction and a tummy tuck.
Explore Financing Options
There’s no reason to steal and risk eternal damnation to pay for plastic surgery. There are financing options available that allow you to divide the cost of your surgery into convenient and affordable monthly payments. Find the right surgeon for you and ask what payment options may be available.
Get Creative with Crowdfunding
Have you taken a gander at the bizarre things people throw money at on crowdfunding sites such as GoFundMe.com? From Vegas trips to tattoo money to buying a bottle of booze, crowdfunding campaigns are being created for everything under the sun, making plastic surgery procedures seem mild in comparison. So, create a campaign and plead to the interwebs for help funding your cosmetic procedure before you go stealing for it.
