While nearly half of all tax refund recipients plan to save their money, another 13 percent will spend their checks on plastic surgery procedures they’ve been desiring, according to the National Retail Federation. Other uses include buying necessities like groceries and gas, going on vacation, or making a major purchase for the home.

What plastic surgery procedures can you get with tax refund money?

With an average refund of $2,798, there are many procedures that can be fully funded with a tax return.

Subsidize the most popular plastic surgery procedures

Interested in procedures that typically exceed a $3,000 price tag? You can use your tax refund money as a downpayment for plastic surgery financing.

  1. Breast augmentation (286,254 procedures)
  2. Nose reshaping (217,124 procedures)
  3. Liposuction (210,552 procedures)
  4. Eyelid surgery (206,509 procedures)
  5. Facelift (128,266 procedures)

Spring is the ideal time for plastic surgery

“When cost is a factor, a tax refund can provide a little extra push toward indulging in a life-changing purchase,” says Dr. Thomas W. Loeb MD. “For less than the cost of a new vehicle or furniture set, you can have a new look that could possibly increase your confidence, earning potential, love life, and happiness greatly. If you have the desire and can afford the recovery time, spring is the ideal time for a fresh start.”
