Mark A. Schusterman will discuss your payment method if you have any questions regarding how you will pay for your surgery. Unfortunately, cosmetic surgery is less likely to be covered by your insurance plan since it is a type of elective surgery. There are some cases where our procedures are completely or partially covered by a health insurance policy but this needs to be sorted out before you have surgery so you know how much you will be expected to pay.
Examples of elective surgeries are breast implants, laser hair removal, butt lifts, and facelifts. This is because we are correcting flaws that are not causing any difficulties in your life. They are simply something you want to have done to enhance your looks so you feel better about the way you look. Elective surgeries are those that will not be covered by your insurance policy but we can discuss financing for your surgery.
Health insurance will pay for some types of plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty, breast reconstruction, and breast reduction Houston are a few examples that may be covered. You will have to have some type of medical history that shows you are having trouble breathing through your nose or your large breasts are causing chronic pain in order for the insurance to help pay. These types of surgeries are generally scheduled after other methods of relief have been considered and tried but have not been successful.
To know if your plastic surgery will be covered, you can call your insurance company and discuss your policy with them. If they will not, that does not mean your wishes of getting plastic surgery end. Instead, we can discuss what other options you have to be able to financially pay for your surgery.
