Will medicare or health insurance pay for lipo and fat transfer

These procedures are cosmetic surgery and no insurance payor will cover this type of surgery. The government or medicare does not cover this either.

Medicare does not pay for cosmetic surgery

Medicare does not pay for cosmetic surgery. Fat transfer to the buttock is an elective cosmetic procedure and not medically necessary. Medicare - or any other insurance - does not and should not pay for these procedures.

In any part of the world any aesthetic surgery is covered by any insurance cy./la cirugia estetica no la cubre los seguros

unless be by an accident it should be covered by your insurance cy other wise is rejected spetially by aesthetic reasons.

Health Insurance and Medicare does not pay for cosmetic procedures

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.
