Exclusive partnership with LendingUSA provides members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery with an important new patient financing resource.
LendingUSA – a leader in patient financing solutions specifically designed for medical providers such as cosmetic surgeons – today announced an exclusive partnership with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS). The AACS is the leader in continuing medical education for all specialties of cosmetic surgery, providing fellowship training programs, live surgery workshops, medical symposiums and an annual scientific meeting to over 1,600 members.
”Our partnership with LendingUSA provides a critical new benefit for the Academy,” says AACS President Robert A. Shumway, MD. “Above all else, our members value quality patient care, which includes offering patients reliable financing options for the treatments they seek.”
LendingUSA’s unique patient financing solution enables up to 30% more approvals than leading competitors, with no charges or fees for promotional financing options on all prime loans. This allows doctors to save thousands of dollars per year on financing costs while also helping to grow their customer base.

Being able to work closely with a respected organization such as the AACS represents a significant validation of our unique business model, and we look forward to working with them for years to come.”
