The government of alberta paid for my sons hypospadisis to be repaired. For those not familiar he had his penis repaired. A hypospadisis is a birth defect of the penis But it was still all cosmetic not medically nessessary. His penis still worked but the government pays for it cause it can cause depression as an adult man as it doesnt look like every guys penis. So we still live in times that if it pertains to a penis its ok that taxpayers pay for it? Didnt realize that women are still of lower class. I also need not just want a tummy tuck. When your partner says its definitely not pretty...it causes pyschologically damage. Since which has been five years i refuse to get naked in front of anyone. I always sleep in a shirt have sex in a shirt. I dont get naked in front of the mirror and i went to a public pool and went to have a shower and i was baked thinking othe women would be compassionate. 3 women stared at me pointing laughing and talking loudly about it in front of me. Now i shower with my swim suit and t shirt on. Its damaging but hey if i had a penis that gave me as much depression the government would pay for it. Sick really sick.

For those who have had multiples, such as quads and had emergency c sections that have left them with huge scarring, mass excess skin, a huge abdominal mesh from muscle wall being ripped apart and the c section (old style of pubic bone to belly button) cut through the muscle wall not healing (Surgical Hernia), And, also the fact of the sides by the hip bones where the skin folds over is too thin and can rip open as the fat/skin is no longer attached to the muscle wall, due to abdominal muscular repair... I believe it should be covered, being a single mother with no child support, no father at all in the picture and a college student with no outside help.. Should have this covered for by the government.. Would make more sense in preventative medicine then to allow things to escalate.. Especially if this person loses and maintains weight loss!

Believe it or not, in other countries tummy tucks are covered by their country's insurance programs at no cost. I believe women who give birth should have tummy tucks covered by their insurance for free. The leftover skin after childbirth is a hindrance during physical activity. This is why many weight loss patients get skin removal surgeries covered after surgery so they can be more mobile and free.

What I mean is that the patient doesn't have to pay. The insurance company, of course, would have to pay.

It is DEF not covered in the US that's for sure. Not unless you had a surgery to lose weight and then they will ONLY take off the extra skin, no muscle repair. No lipo.

I actually do know what I'm talking about, they cut through the Fascia above the abdominal muscles and the muscles are pushed aside to move on to the other layers of tissue that need to be cut. While there is skin and tissue damage during a c section, there is no muscle damage by the actual procedure.

Actually in all routine c-sections the actual abdominal muscles are not cut!

Not sure what your talking about, but I think you should do some research. I'm sure you will find that you are not correct and the only way you might recover 100% from a c section is if you have a cosmetic surgeon deliver your baby and you stay under their care. Most doctors out here in the west are just over paid veterinarians (though I just had my dog in the other day and I think vets are catching up) and I guarantee there is damage in every surgery. I have been married to two different women with c section damage. My wife now is a marathon runner and she is beautiful, but the damage left from birth is depressing to her. Nothing on her bothers me, but I think it is a woman thing and I would support after care for these women under an insurance plan.

I think they would say they would rather pay for that then drug treatment for abusers. How do you not comprehend that having your stomach muscles cut leaving you with excess skin on your front is not a medical issue? If nothing else, it causes depression because you normally can't fix it without surgery. I think disfigurement caused by a surgical procedure should be followed up until that body is as close to original condition as possible. I believe C-section operations are left grossly mismanaged by care takers.

There is no such thing as "free surgery". Someone ultimately has to compensate the surgeon, anesthetist and nursing staff for their time and also pay for the materials and equipment used during surgery. Since a tummy tuck is not necessary surgery (a loose, flabby tummy may not look nice but is not a health risk)that "someone" should be the patient. In Canada, where I practice, government health plans pay for all necessary medical care but NEVER for cosmetic surgery. When my patients ask me why the government doesn't pay for cosmetic surgery, I tell them that government money is taxpayer money, i.e. it is like asking your friends and neighbors, through their taxes, to pay for your tummy-tuck. What do you think they would say?
