With Further Weight Loss
Panniculectomy is usually for people who have lost 100 lbs or more relatively quickly and when you have a BMI of less than 30.
Qualify for a panniculectomy?
I believe that based on the information you have provided in your excerpt, you would definitely qualify for a panniculectomy. Whether the insurance company will pay for the procedure is something that has to be submitted probably including physician notes as well as photographs. The more weight you the lose now the better the outcome of the surgery will be.
I had Lap Band and lost 120 lbs. Would I qualify for a Panniculectomy?
Only your insurance company can answer this for you. It has been my experience that patients that lose over 100Lbs often qualify under most insurance plans. Best of luck.
