Any cosmetic surgery can be financially costly and many different payment methods have transpired since surgery became more popular and widely available.
Breast implants (or augmentation) are no exception and can cost between £3,000 and £5,000. there are few patients who can comfortably finance and pay for surgery outright. However many of the UK's top breast augmentation clinics now offer a wide variety of easily manageable repayment options to help patients finance surgery and spread their payment over a number of months.
Generally, finance packages and loans are available for repayments over 12, 24 and 36 months and require a minimum deposit. This is dependent on which loan company or cosmetic surgery business is used and deposits start from around £250 upwards.
Due to this, coupled with the disastrous economic climate that we find ourselves in, more and more clinics, as well as other third party companies, are offering varying breast implant finance options to help make your dream of surgery a reality.
Many people thinking of undergoing breast augmentation will feel secure in the knowledge that financial packages and loans are available with various easy payment options.

In the event that the applicant is not eligible, some companies offer prepay monthly installments before the booked procedure.

After this time you can choose to either pay off the balance for your treatment in full or choose to pay over an extended period of time with a fixed interest rate. Transform, for example, offers patients the chance to pay the balance off over 36 months at 15.9% APR.
For example this would make a an initial loan of £2900 for a breast enhancement come to an overall cost of around £3867 after 3 yearly payments at 15.9% APR.
Another breast implant finance option involves paying a substantial amount of the full balance in a one off payment, which is followed up by monthly payments. Companies that offer low monthly payment plans do not generally add any interest to the monthly payments so the price remains the same as if it were paid in full initially. Typical deals involve paying around 65% of the balance in one payment and completing the payment plan in either 10 months, 1, 3 or even 5 years. The cosmetic surgery clinic MYA, for example, allows the remaining balance to be paid off over the duration of 12 months, with no added interest.
Nowadays, most clinics understand that many patients are simply unable to afford cosmetic surgery of any kind. As a result a number of surgeries are offering their own loans and flexible breast implant finance options to help patients fund their cosmetic surgery.
Many cosmetic surgery clinics offer 0% finance options for your breast enlargement and are willing to lend anything from £500 to £15000, which can be paid back, interest free, over the space of 10 months.
Not only are there certain clinics that offer loans, but there are also many third party companies that can help with financing your breast augmentation surgery. Loans can be agreed in a matter of hours, depending on the borrowers’ credit rating, and if all the relevant documentation is readily available.

The majority of loan companies understand the private healthcare market and treat all applicants with complete discretion and sensitivity.
Loans are typically agreed on a case by case basis. In many cases you need not worry about your credit rating and history as unsecured loans are also offered to help those with bad credit rating secure funding for their breast enlargement procedure despite it most likely having a higher rate of interest attached.
The repayment costs depend on whether an APR is applied to the loan, how much is being borrowed, the time repayable and duration of loan.
If the procedure was costing £5,000:
With 0% APR and a £1,000 deposit, this will cost £358.33 per month in 12 monthly payments.
For a £4,000 procedure:
With 19.9% APR and a £250 deposit, this will cost around £180.00 per month in 24 monthly payments.
