United Medical Credit Lends Support to 30th Cosmetic Surgery Conference

California-based medical loans provider United Medical Credit is set to participate in the 30th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

Medical loans provider United Medical Credit (UMC) is set to lend full support to the 30th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS). The conference will be held on January 14 to 19, 2014 at the Westin Diplomat Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Annual Scientific Meeting of the AACS is "the premier gathering of cosmetic surgery professionals in the world." The five-day affair will consist of various sessions—symposia, live patient demonstrations and lecture from keynote speakers—on the latest technologies and best practices in the field of cosmetic surgery. More than 1,000 practitioners, practice managers, exhibitors, researchers and health specialists are expected to attend the event.

The 30th anniversary of the gathering will focus on and celebrate cosmetic surgery's "heritage of evidence-based inquiry, multispecialty collaboration and outstanding patient care." The upcoming conference will also tackle "patient safety through excellence." Keynote speakers include renowned industry experts like David Sarwer, director of clinical services at the Center for Weight and Eating Disorders at the University of Pennsylvania; Ole-PetterRiksfjordHamnvik, endocrinologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital; Devon M. Herrick, senior fellow for the National Center for Policy Analysis; and Sean Rice, prominent plastic and cosmetic surgeon and founder of The Rice Cosmetic Surgery Clinic.

As an established provider of loans for plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures, UMC will lend expert insights during the conference.

"We are excited to be part of this event," Matthew Libman, president said. "This is a great opportunity for us to keep abreast with the latest trends in cosmetic surgery. As a medical loans provider, it is vital for us to fully understand the ins and outs of the industry so we can provide loans that truly address the needs of our clients."

According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 55 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are predicted to be performed by 2015. This growth will be fueled by increasing consumer awareness, direct marketing and advertising, and technological advancements in non-surgical procedures. As the demand for cosmetic surgery rises, so will its cost.

Libman added, "For some, cosmetic surgery is an option but for others, it is a need. Plastic surgery is also part of basic healthcare and the reality is that a lot of people cannot afford it because of restrictive costs. That's why we're here, to help deserving people get legitimate and reliable financing for cosmetic surgery."

UMC offers cosmetic surgery credit for procedures including, but not limited to, body lift, face lift, scar removal, nose surgery, breast augmentation, liposuction and hair restoration, among others. The company also caters to clients who require medical financing for bariatric surgery, fertility procedures, dental surgery, Lasik and eye surgery, hearing aids and devices, and other general healthcare requirements.

UMC sets itself apart from other medical loan providers by focusing specifically on patients with less than perfect credit.

"It's part of our commitment to make cosmetic surgery accessible to more people who need it," Libman said. "Some people take risks by choosing to go under the knife under cheaper and yet unprofessional circumstances. We believe it's important for people to know that there are professionals, like us, who can help them obtain financing for cosmetic surgery without risking their lives".

For clients with a bad credit score, UMC may require a co-signer to get loan approval. In some cases when the loan amount is too high, a down payment may be also be required. Medical loans range from $500 to $20,000. UMC offers Same-as-Cash financing programs ranging from six to 24 months on approved credit and with provider participation.
