Plastic surgery encompasses
both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
is performed to reshape normal structures of the body
in order to improve the patient's appearance
and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not
covered by health insurance because it is elective.
Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures
of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental
abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease.
It is generally performed to improve functions, but
may also be done to approximate a normal appearance.
Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most
health insurance policies, although coverage for specific
procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
There are a number of "gray areas" in coverage
for plastic surgery that sometimes require special consideration
by an insurance carrier. These areas usually involve
surgical operations which may be reconstructive or cosmetic,
depending on each patient's situation. For example,
eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) - a procedure normally
performed to achieve cosmetic improvement - may be covered
if the eyelids are drooping severely and obscuring a
patient's vision. To learn more about procedures click
