I have a deformed stomach after two unsuccessful abdominal hernia operations. I cannot afford to pay for plastic surgery. Under what conditions does health insurance cover abdominoplasty?
I have had a c-section and the scar is still painful and has caused my stomach to sag. Am i a candidate for free abdominoplasty?
In Germany insurance companies usually cover those costs for abdominoplasty/ tommy tuck if the scar is indeed painful and itching, besides being hypertrophic. Furthermore there must be enough skin to be stretched like in an tommy tuck. In other cases a conventional scar revision will do.

hi, hola, as we say in mexico, since abdominoplasty is an aesthetic procedure, it isnt covered in any way posible. You maybe a candidate for another abdominal wall repair in which tha abdominoplasty can be performed. In my prectice this procedure is common. Excellente results are achieved, if u come to mexico sometime dont hesitate to contact me. Good luck

if ur c-section scar is painfull the surgery u need, and the one that can be covered by health insurance is a scar revision, not an abdominoplasty. (bummer). Usually there are no insurance companies (as far as i know) that cover this kind of procedures, othewise every single person would get on the list.

Only in case abdominal hernia operation.
I have had three c-section and then I had to have a wound vake place inside my stomach.I had inguinal hernia. Now i have a recurrence of this. So would I be a candiate for this tommy tuck.
You would be a candidate for tummy tuck. The procedure is really straightforward that it takes around 2 hours and you need to stay overnight. Iy you interested in the procedure please let us know to forward more details on you surgery and and how we can contact and plan schedule for it.
Have a nice day!

I have had four C-sections and a abdominal hysterectomy. Due to gaining and losing weight with each pregnancy and throughout adult-hood, now I have an "abdominal flap". For years I've been having lowing back pain that starts in my back and radiates around my abdomen like a belt. Do you think health insurance would cover a abdominoplasty
I have a lot of fat and extra skin around my belly. I recently found out that I have a fatty liver and the only way to reverse it is to loose the weight around my belly. I've been trying for awhile and even went on a diet. I seem to be loosing it everywhere but there. I'm scared if I don't get rid of it my liver wont get better! Am I a good candidate for my insurance to cover the surgery? Oh by the way I'm on acchhs insurance
