Desmoid tumor removed from back. The doc told me I'd need a plastic surgeon to repair scar. Medicare/Medicare pay for it?

Scar Removal Takes a Combination Solution--Lasers, Microneedling/prp, subcision

Scar removal takes a combination approach: lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), Microneedling/PRP, Subcision, Fillers, and Tattooing. I can't speak to insurance coverage, but you'll want to see an expert in scarring. Best, Dr. Emer

Coverage for scar revision

Some scars are inflamed and are covered by insurance. Check with your local surgeon.
