does anyone ever question things? so here i am excited to finally see the plastic surgeon but was exhausted from lack of sleep, i had a long wait, & when i looked around i saw slim folks compared to the "fat" me even though i have lost 148 lbs in 9 months. it was like "Dear God what have i gotten myself into anyways"? but that feeling was short lived. my surgeon who i knew from 19 yrs ago was the kindest man ever! i kept telling him that all i saw was fat & he said but no i see loose skin & this is something that i can correct. he wanted to know all about my weight loss journey. i am on medicare and they rarely cover plastic surgery but the doctor i went to in my opinion is the best in the state and if anyone can get the insurance to cover it he can. what i like about this doctor the most is his sense of humor. he kept me laughing, something i rarely find in a doctor. i should know something back from insurance in 4-6 wks so wish me luck everyone
Medicare or other insurances don't cover plastic, ever. But they are knownt to cover a reconstructive. surgery .
Have faith, who knows. But for now call it reconstructive surgery.
