Thank you for asking about your panniculectomy.
  • Congratulations on your weight loss!
  • To find out if insurance will cover your surgery, you need to review your insurance policy and then see one of the plastic surgeons who is in your insurance network.
  • S/he will write a letter to your insurer to determine if insurance will pay for the surgery.
