I am guessing you are asking if there are places you can get cosmetic procedures done at less expense because the procedures are still being studied. If I am right, consider this answer: most university medical centers have plastic surgery resident clinics where senior residents perform procedures inexpensively under the supervision of faculty plastic surgeons.

Many residency programs have ongoing studies.
Procedure rates might be reduced, but not free.

Most high volume academic surgeons have some kind of retrospective study to evaluate different tecniques used in cosmetic surgery and ways to improve their long term result.

Occasionally studies are done which includes the delivery of care for the volunteers.
Best examples deal with liposuction studies dealing with stem cells. Patients have volume of fat removed, and the fat studied in a laboratory. The patient does get either reimbursement or no cost surgery treatments.
