Because a Mommy Makeover is an elective cosmetic procedure, it is rarely covered by insurance. There are, however, conditions that may be considered medically necessary that may be covered by insurance. These are:
A condition in which a portion of the intra-abdominal contents pokes through a hole in the abdominal muscles near the belly button. This is quite common after giving birth, as the muscles are weakened from the pregnancy.
This is different than rectus diastasis. Rectus diastasis is characterized by a separation of the abdominal muscles. There is no hole in rectus diastasis and it is often not covered by insurance. Most women in need of a tummy tuck have rectus diastasis.
Also known as macromastia, causing back and neck pain or rashes under the breasts. In such a case, breast reduction may be covered by insurance. This is different than a breast lift, in which no breast tissue is removed.
This is a condition in which there is excessive loose skin on the lower abdomen. The skin has become excessive enough where it folds over itself significantly, almost like an apron. Pannus can cause significant symptoms, such as a rash, irritation or infection. The treatment is a panniculectomy or excision of the pannus, which may be covered by your insurance.
