I was wondering if anyone would be able to share their experiences with getting their procedures financed. How much did you pay a month? Is it better to pay all at once or in increments over a certain period of time? Is this something I can bring up once I get to Korea or should I talk to someone sooner? Thank you guys!

A month? I think it will only last for 14 days or something? But yeah, I hope someone will respond to your post :) When are you planning to have a surgery in Korea?Smile

By a "month" I meant if you got it financed how much would it cost a month since financing is usually a monthly payment. And I'm planning on going to Korea in July 2015. By then I should have at least 90% of the money to pay for it, I was just wondering if there is another payment option rather than paying all at once. :) Thanks for your reply!

I was wondering the same thing! But I have a feeling that clinics in Korea look for the full payment.

I think you should find any company in keorea which deals in financing service.

Financing a surgery might not be the greatest idea . . . I understand the appeal, but you never know what might change in the aftermath of the surgery and you don't want to be stuck with that. However to answer your question, clinics do look for full-payment - and offer discounts if you are able to pay in full before the surgery. You might be able to find one that is willing to do monthly payments but it's just a better idea to do it all at once. If the quoted price is higher than your budget, try bargaining down; clinics do not quote their lowest price automatically. (Bargaining is especially effective if you are going with a group of people all getting their surgeries done at the same clinic, and/or if you are having a lot of procedures done.)

Clinics wants full payment but I know some clinics accepts paying in installments especially if they know the medical tourism company you are with. So, just ask seoul touchup

Also, recently found out that if you pay in cash you won't have to pay the Korean cosmetic surgery tax (which is like 10%)

I'd feel really nervous carrying that amount of money but it is better than paying more than I have to.

No problem! But yes, I'm also reluctant to carry around that much cash.

If you don't want to pay more, you will have to carry it but secure your luggage

Omg. I carried cash in my luggage, and I was so nervous that it was going to get lost the entire time... It's quite scary actually :| Esp bc you have to declare any amount over 10k USD, so people will knowww if you have money on you... :|

 Hi Mitchie, 

I would be very grateful if you could tell which hospital you mean exactly? I need plastic surgery but I can not afford it. CryFrown

Hard cash? You can't have a cashier's check or any other equivalent?

I think I've read somewhere that if you use a cashier's check abroad, the check must be sent back to the original bank for verification (as there have been counterfeiting cases abroad). That being said, the money might not be as readily available unless the bank has an international branch that can make verification easier.
