Elective Payment Options
Wake Plastic Surgery accepts cash, checks, and credit cards (Mastercard, Visa, and Discover). Checks are acceptable when provided two weeks prior to a surgical procedure. We also have partnered with both CareCredit and Allegacy Federal Credit Union to provide financing options for our patients.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed for your health and wellness needs that can be used by you and your family. CareCredit offers a variety of payment plans for health related expenditures. They have both no-interest and low-interest options that may be right for your situation. The credit application is similar to that of a credit card. If you decide that you may wish to finance another procedure in the future, you will not be required to reapply. You can click on the icon to start your application or get more information. Our team can also assist you at your consultation or pre-op appointment if needed.
Allegacy is a credit union that offers a Lifestyle Lending option for our patients.
