Patients who want their health insurance companies to pay for their surgery will need to keep documentation on their skin infections and rashes in areas where they have excess skin. This often occurs on the abdomen and inner thighs. The plastic surgeon you speak with can talk about what health insurance companies often require for their fees to be covered. Skin infections, rashes, and other conditions will need to be present for at least six months with careful documentation from a primary care physician.
In the past, it was easier for patients to have their full body lift surgeries covered by their insurance. Unfortunately, as popularity for bariatric surgery has increased, body lift surgeries are more in demand making health insurance companies much more stringent about what they pay for. In the end, if you are able to prove that the excess skin is causing skin problems for an extended period of time, your chances at having health insurance cover the surgery become higher.
