Are plastics covered by OHIP

I'm just wondered, if after the weight loss, are plastic surgeries covered by OHIP?
I'm in Ontario ... OHIP ... ya, I figured you would guess that.
If medically necessary, a panniculectomy (removal of overhanging skin commonly referred to as an apron below your abdomen) is covered by OHIP. Under certain requirements a breast lift, reduction can also be covered in some cases.

My panni is approved through OHIP and I am upgrading to a full tummy tuck with mons repair and lipo on my flanks.
The wait is long for approval and if denied you can appeal.

I'm just over 2 months and I would love to know prices too. A goal to reward myself with and and know what to approx save for.
I went to several consults with different plastic surgeons. Incredible how costs varied!
One was $12,995 for the upgraded panni with mons repair, another was $5000. I am going with the $5k one. Even if I had alot of money, I wouldn't spend $12,995.

In less than 2 weeks I will be getting a fleur de lis tummy tuck with muscle repair. Panni is paid by Ohip. I'm paying $4080 out of pocket.
