I recommend an in-office examination as well as a detailed discussion with a surgeon who you are comfortable with and who is a board-certified Plastic Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Best wishes! Dr. Desai

Congrats on losing your weight!   Medicare and other insurance companies do not cover cosmetic surgery.
