Financing & Travel

Financing Options

Dr. Breitbart and his staff are committed to making every aspect of your plastic surgical experience as comfortable as possible. Every patient has different requirements for surgery and hence it can be difficult to provide an exact quote over the phone or by e-mail. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Breitbart’s staff will discuss exact fees based upon a thorough analysis of the procedures that you desire, and also provide you financing information if you are interested. Financing is offered through these finance companies: Care Credit and Alphaeon Credit.
