Plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery is considered an elective procedure that is typically not covered by insurance companies. Some cosmetic surgeries may be considered medically necessary. Check with your health insurance provider to see the complete list of surgeries that are covered.
A consultation in-office or virtual will depend on your doctor’s recommendation and visiting options. Check with the medical office to learn more about their consultation options.
Most medical practices will allow one person to join you for your consultation for support. However, due to COVID-19, some offices may limit the number of visitors. Please contact the doctor's office to learn about their visitor policy and protocols.
Consultation fees will vary from office to office, but you should expect to pay a consultation fee with most plastic/cosmetic surgery offices. Typically, the consultation fees are applied to the procedure.
