Hello I had a hysterectomy 2 yrs ago and I lost some weight and where they cut me my stomach is not going down but on the other side is. Is there any way that my insurance (HAP hmo) will cover a tummy tuck to correct my stomach?

    It sounds like you are describing a cosmetic issue, which would not be covered by your insurance company.

    In general, this is considered cosmetic surgery which is not covered by insurance.

    Unfortunately, insurance will not cover correction of this type of body change after surgery unless there is a hernia in the muscle. Even then, they will cover only part of the surgery related to the hernia but not the tummy tuck part. I hope this information answers your concerns. Regards, Dr. Stefani
