Know your Face:

For several years, it was believed that our face is a single piece of mass which in due course of time gets weighed down by gravity, creating sagging skin. However a recent study shows that our face is made up of 16 different compartments of fat, which age at different levels and at different times. This indicates that as your cheeks begin to sag, the area around your eyes may remain juvenile and spry looking. This has also enabled plastic surgeons to understand that the face stores fat which could lead to more effective anti-aging strategies, better facial reconstruction techniques.This discovery is changing preceding postulations about the face's composition, and its implications may reach to better face-lifts & to a new understanding of obesity.

Financing options:

Nowadays, various financing options are available even before the plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is most of the time not covered under Health Insurance so Plastic Surgery Financing is considered to be a good option for the more costly surgeries.

Plastic surgery financing is usually available regardless of the type of procedure performed. Monthly payments vary based on the cost of the procedure, the length of time needed to repay the loan, and your credit rating.

Many financing alternatives are available, from installment plans arranged through your surgeon's in-house finance program, to credit obtained from outside finance companies that have partnered with your surgeon

If your plastic surgeon does not offer a medical financing option, you can contact a medical finance company directly. Finance companies can provide a list of surgeons who participate in their network. This list does not endorse or reference the qualifications of each surgeon, so you need to carefully research the capabilities of each surgeon independently of the financing information. Many plastic surgery financing programs will only work with certain physicians, although a growing number of finance companies allow you to choose your own surgeon.

Plastic surgery Institute of California offers their patients financing through both CareCredit and MediCredit. Care credit leads in P.S.F. while Medi credit has been in it since 1992.
