Insurance & Financing

As a convenience to our patients, we accept as many insurance plans as possible as an out-of-network provider. We are happy to work with you and your insurance plan. Insurance plans and coverage vary dramatically depending on your plan and the state where plans are based. We are happy to determine your insurance benefits and also determine your coverage for specific procedures. Some of the common insurance plans that we accept as an out of network provider are as follows:

And Most PPO Insurance

 

If your insurance plan is not listed above, we are happy to work with you to determine your plan benefits and get your procedure authorized by your insurance company.

Avant Aesthetics accepts care credit, credit card, cash and debit.

Many reconstructive procedures are covered by insurance policies. However, every insurance company has a different set of criteria distinguishing between reconstructive versus cosmetic procedures. Sometimes, apparent cosmetic procedures may also fall under the reconstruction category. For example, procedures such as breast reductions and blepharoplasty are often covered, but each insurance company has different criteria that have to be met before coverage is allowed. This may simply involve a letter from your physician that properly documents your ailments. Insurance policies also vary with regards to the amount of coverage provided. Due to the complexities of insurance contracts, the best way for you to figure these things out is to come in for a complimentary consultation and let us do the work to maximize your insurance benefits.

No deposit is required for insurance-based procedures, unless you have California Blue Shield or Blue Cross. Deposit will depend on the type of surgery you will be receiving. 

For cosmetic surgery not covered by insurance, deposit is 10% at time of scheduling for cosmetic procedures. If you require cosmetic financing, our experienced medical staff will work with you on obtaining financing if necessary. Once the necessary arrangements are made, we will work out a mutually agreeable date for surgery and schedule your surgery. Payment of the remaining balance is expected 2 weeks prior to your planned surgery. Please understand that this policy ensures that the operating room time is not wasted and that all our patients have the greatest flexibility in scheduling their surgeries.

 

As a service to our patients, we are able to offer financing from several reputable companies. Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining the care you deserve. It is also an easy way to spread out the out-of-pocket cost for cosmetic procedures. If there is a need, please contact us and we’ll help you make the necessary arrangements with the appropriate cosmetic surgery financing companies.

Pre & Post-Op Instructions

For any type of surgery, you are required to have your blood tested with results delivered to us 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Unfortunately, Avant Aesthetics does not perform bloodwork.

There are two ways you can get your bloodwork done:
1. With your primary care physician.

Surgical Aftercare

While having plastic surgery is exciting, it is important to have someone be able to care for you immediately after surgery. Friends and family members should be available to assist you. If you are staying at a private hotel without friends or family available to assist you during the post-operative recovery period, our patient care coordinators can arrange for private duty caregivers to assist you.

Or alternatively, our patient care coordinator can arrange for you to stay at a nearby aftercare facility.

Rest assured, your surgeon Dr. Liu will be by to check on you regardless of where you stay. They will also be available for any post-operative issues and/or questions.
