Canadian socialized health insurance does not cover any cosmetic surgery. So best to save up your $$s and obtain additional weight loss. Also see a few boarded PSs in person in your city//

Insurance does not cover "cosmetic procedures"

Hello Shell,

Thank you for the question and the photos.  Insurance companies do not cover cosmetic plastic surgery procedures.  They may cover certain plastic surgery procedures that are deemed necessary for health reasons such as panniculectomy (over hang), breast reduction, abdominal hernia, etc.  There are certain requirements that each insurance company have to meet before they will cover these types of procedures.  I would start with a few plastic surgery consultations and go from there.

All the best,

Dr. Remus Repta
