Insurance coverage of procedures
Almost all health insurance policies in the US have a clause precluding coverage of cosmetic surgery and complications arising from cosmetic surgery, like removing infected facial or breast implants placed for cosmetic reasons.
My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.
In general insurance companies may refuse to pay for any problem that results from a cosmetic surgery. Good luck!
