There : There are many ways to finance facelifting and rejuvenation. Conventional credit cards are accepted by most physicians offices. There is also carecredit which offers financing options for patients seeking surgery. In general, however, you should think long and hard about what you will be sacrificing for yourself and your family if you have the procedure done. Cosmetic surgery should not be undertaken if it will cause unnecessary hardship.. Hope this helps -bwc.

Consider University: In addition to various financing options, consider a local university training program where your surgery can be performed by a plastic surgery resident under the supervision of plastic surgery instructors.

Facelift finance: There are a couple of ways to afford a facelift. One is to talk with the office manager at your plastic surgeon's office. They may have financing plans. Another option is to see a resident clinic. They have them at most university plastic surgery programs. They are typically overseen by board certified faculty.

Consider counseling: Although there are options for less expensive rejuvenation options than a facelift, it is very important that you understand that a facelift is not a treatment for depression. You would be much better served by having some counseling sessions to understand why you are feeling down. Once your mood is improved, then and only then would cosmetic surgery be appropriate.

Facelift: A facelift will not cure depression. Before seeking am evaluation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon, perhaps you should contact a therapist to understand the root of these feelings.

Depression: Studies have shown that patients who do cosmetic surgery for the wrong reasons (depression) are not happy with the results. Surgeons shy away from patients who expect cosmetic surgery to help with depression.
