Tummy tuck surgery is typically considered an elective, cosmetic procedure by insurance companies. Unless it is deemed medically necessary for you to have this surgery, it is unlikely that your insurance will provide coverage. During your consultation, your surgeon’s patient coordinator will discuss what payment options, financing, and insurances they may accept. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides tummy tuck to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Tummy Tuck vs Panniculectomy
Tummy tuck surgery is a body contouring procedure in which excess fat and skin are removed, and the underlying abdominal muscles are repaired and tightened. This procedure is more of a cosmetic treatment to create a tight, flat appearance of the tummy. On the other hand, a procedure called panniculectomy is performed solely to remove excess, sagging skin.
Cosmetic procedures will not be covered by insurance companies. If you have loose, excess skin that is causing you rashes or infections, you may be able to have your doctor deem your surgery as medically necessary. If your insurance does offer coverage, it may only be for a panniculectomy or the skin removal portion of your tummy tuck. You would then be responsible for paying the difference out of pocket or financing it.
Talk to Your Patient Coordinator
When calling to make your consultation, it is important to tell your surgeon’s office that you are seeking to use insurance towards your procedure. Some offices do not accept insurance as payment, regardless if your insurance provider is offering coverage. If your surgeon’s office is willing to accept insurance, you will receive a breakdown of your costs during your consultation.
