Dr. Shim Ching works to keep his prices competitive with other plastic surgeons in Honolulu and throughout Hawaii. Cost is a major consideration for nearly all prospective plastic surgery patients, and we believe it should be discussed openly and honestly prior to moving forward with surgery. Here, learn more about the costs associated with plastic surgery as well as your options for paying for it.
What Determines the Cost of Your Surgery?
Many different factors go into determining the final figure you’ll pay for your surgery. Like any other service, the cost of plastic surgery can vary depending on where in the world you have it performed. For example, users on plastic surgery resource RealSelf.com report paying between $6,400 and $11,000 for breast augmentation in Honolulu, with an average of $8,575. This is just a bit higher than the average price paid by mainland patients.
At the end of your initial consultation, we provide you with a written quote that reflects the details you discussed with Dr. Ching. The final cost of your surgery factors in several variables, including:
- The cost of any medical devices and supplies, such as breast implants
- Fees charged by the anesthesiologist and surgical facility
- The significance or technical challenge of your surgery
- Costs associated with preoperative and postoperative visits
Your Payment Options
In addition to the option to pay for your surgery outright, we also offer financing through these third-party organizations:
CareCredit® works like a credit card, but it’s specifically for purchases related to health and beauty. They offer generous lines of credit to qualified applicants as well as several repayment options. You can easily apply online.
ALPHAEON® CREDIT offers no interest financing options, so if the amount financed is $4,000, the estimated monthly payment for 6 months is $667. They also have a 14.9% APR Budget Pay Plan, which is available for as low as $99/month when you finance $1,000 (11-month plan) or $149/month when you finance $4,000 (33-month plan). Apply online or by phone at (855) 497-8176.
United Medical Credit is ideal for those who do not qualify for standard subprime loans. They charge a higher interest rate, which varies and is based on each individual person’s credit history/score. Learn more on their FAQ Page. You can apply online or by phone at (855) 503-1800.
