Financing the Operation

The fees for plastic surgery can be obtained at the consultation in Lafayette or Brentwood with Dr. Barbara Persons. Insurance typically will not cover any of the cost when a procedure is purely cosmetic. Reconstructive surgery, however, is often reimbursed in part or completely. Procedures that are part cosmetic and part reconstructive will generally have a portion of the cost reimbursed. We are happy to help our plastic surgery patients from Walnut Creek and throughout the Bay Area with claim forms.

All cosmetic surgery is paid in advance. A scheduling fee is collected at the time the patient schedules surgery, with the balance due one to two weeks prior to surgery, at the time of the pre-operative physical examination.

Insurance Accepted

When an insurance company is paying part or all of the fee, full payment is still the responsibility of the patient given that the insurance policy is with the patient and not with the surgery center. We will be glad to assist you with the insurance forms.
