Staff & Facilities
As you plan for plastic surgery, you will probably learn a great deal about what will happen in the operating room and discuss how you will look and feel afterward. However, another important part of being an informed patient is knowing about the costs associated with surgery, and how these costs will be paid.
Coverage will vary depending on your insurance policy or what type of surgery you are having. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve function, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient's appearance and self esteem. In most cases, insurance will only cover reconstructive surgery. Our highly trained staff will work with you and your insurance company to provide coverage for medically necessary procedures. Please contact us with your questions regarding any health insurance issues.
