Insurance does not cover Brazilian Butt Lift
Health Insurance does not pay for cosmetic procedures and this includes Brazilian Butt Lifts.
The short answer is that no Health Insurance Policy or Medicare will pay for cosmetic procedures - this includes a butt lift, augmentation, etc. They will only cover medically necessary conditions, not simply to approve ones appearance. For the record, although your description indicates you have pain from your appearance there is no medical basis for this and some other reason is responsible.

Here is the long answer about what insurance dose cover.  It used to be that just about all "lumps and bumps" were covered by insurance as it was considered reconstructive rather than cosmetic surgery.  The defiintion of this distinction is pretty straight forward - Reconstructive surgery means improvement of a condition that goes from abnormal towards the normal, whereas "Cosmetic" refers to improvement of a normal condition. Unfortunately, this does make a lot of difference to many insurance companies today. Instead they are more interested in correction of functional problems. That is something that interferes with your vision, irritates the eye, causes recurrent infection or dry eyes, or is a cancer (malignancy),etc.
