At Total Lipedema Care, we understand the decision to undergo surgical intervention to treat your lipedema can be scary – and costly.  From questions, concerns, apprehension, and a mix of other emotions, the last thing on your mind should be “What about money?”  Let our knowledgeable team guide you through the entire financing process, eliminating all the nerve-inducing noise, so you can arrive on surgery day relaxed and reassured.

While every patient is completely unique, the cost for full-leg (thighs, knees, calves, and ankles) lipedema surgery using any of the most up-to-the-minute liposuction techniques can run upwards of $20,000 or more.  Because liposuction surgery is involved in the process of treating lipedema, it’s no surprise most insurance providers will not cover the steep costs of lipedema surgery since liposuction is deemed a “cosmetic” procedure – even if your lipedema progression is life-threatening.  Have hope. At Total Lipedema Care, we are proud to offer a number of independent financing options with customized payment plan options to those who qualify.  Lipedema surgery can get quite pricey, especially if multiple surgeries are required to yield desired aesthetic and health-related results.

Here are three of our most popular financing options currently available:

Known for their financing of the most popularly performed cosmetic procedures, flexible CareCredit® financing plans include 0% interest options and no down payment, contingent on a patient’s credit score.  CareCredit® allows patients to pay the partial or full amount of surgery without additional fees, exclusions, or conditions, plus patients can pay their agreed loan amount interest free over a six-month period.

The premier credit provider of choice at leading, board-certified dermatologists, plastic surgeons, dentists, and ophthalmologists, Alphaeon® offers a wide variety of monthly payment options, including lower APR for 24, 36, and 60 months.  Alphaeon® also offers qualified customers unlimited credit card access to finance additional cosmetic procedures, making it a viable choice for those lipedema patients who may require multiple surgeries.

LendingUSA® leads the charge in providing flexible financing plans with the highest approval rates in the industry.  Some of their brag-worthy features include:

  • Inclusive – personalized plans for a wide range of credit scores
