Consultations & Financing
Our Consultation and Financing Options
We offer a unique Comprehensive Consultation, which is designed to maximize patient education on the procedures we offer. We also offer several financing options at our Birmingham plastic surgery office.
Consultations are provided in various comfortable settings to assure a relaxed, pleasant experience. Our consultations are efficiently designed to minimize waiting time. The consultation consists of a multimedia presentation, which includes an extensive and lengthy visit with Alabama plastic surgeon Michael S. Beckenstein, M.D. He will thoroughly discuss all the options you might have while addressing your unique situation.
During the same visit, additional time will be spent with our staff members who will further educate you on the aesthetic and reconstructive procedures and our methods of care. You will then speak with our financial consultant who will discuss the various fees involved and alternative methods of financing. Our Patient Services Specialist is also available to coordinate accommodations for our out of town patients. The initial consultation is followed up with additional information provided to you through personalized communications. If our patients are not well educated about their procedures and the events surrounding their surgery, we have not done our job!
Dr. Beckenstein accepts major credit cards and they are used by many patients to finance part or all of their procedures. We work with several financing companies that specialize in aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery, and they have various fee structures and payment options.
We are always seeking other options that are easy for patients to apply for, with good rates, no extra fees, hassles, etc. Our goal is for you, the patient, to find a good, easy way to finance your surgery. Our patient services specialists will assist you with finding a convenient way for you to accomplish this!
We are pleased to offer financing with CareCredit, the nation's leading medical finance program. With CareCredit you can finance the entire cost of your procedure, or even a portion of it that's right for you. With convenient payment plans, CareCredit provides financing to fit your budget.

I give all my aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery patients an insurance policy that covers any untoward events that may occur within thirty days of the procedure. If you require additional surgery or medical treatment in this time frame, you may be liable for additional fees not covered by your health insurance. This policy will cover you for these events.
