Cosmetic surgery is primarily out of pocket and not covered by health insurance. However, breast reconstruction after breast cancer is usually covered. Eyelid surgery is sometimes covered if the patient can prove their eyelids are impairing their vision. Hand-related cases are usually covered.
Please check with your provider for health insurance coverage prior to your procedure.
