When a plastic surgery procedure is being performed for cosmetic reasons, insurance will not be involved. However, insurance may partially or fully cover a surgery when it is necessary for reconstructive purposes.
Some procedures which are often covered by insurance are:
- Breast reconstructive – after a masectomy
- Rhinoplasty – for breathing problems
- Tummy tuck – for gastric bypass patients
- Eyelid surgery – to correct vision problems
If you are considering a plastic surgery procedure, you should contact your insurance company to find out if your procedure will be covered first. If not, most surgeons will work out payment plans to allow you to get your procedure.
