Part insurance part cash payment

If I get breast reduction covered by insurance can I do a mommy makeover or whatever else is needed by paying cash to cut costs?

Women will not infrequently have multiple procedure done at the same time. As long as you have reviewed the procedures, goals and risks with your surgeon and found to be a good candidate. In terms of how a facility handles the combination of insured procedures with cosmetic procedure varies from institution to institution. Your surgeon or their staff should be able to review those with you.

Insurance will not cover anything else but the breast reduction. Generally what most hospitals do is charge a cosmetic rate for the anesthesia and OR, according to time in surgery after the breast reduction. The additional mommy makeover surgeon fee is determined by the surgeon. Every hospital or surgicenter has its own policy.

Combining an insured procedure and a cosmetic one is common. Discuss this with your plastic surgeon and make sure that the hospital, or surgery center where he/she operates can accommodate you.
