Most health insurance does not cover tummy tuck surgery or its complications, but if you are having a hernia then that part of the procedure is covered under insurance.
When choosing a board certified plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
You may be a Good Tummy tuck candidate if:
- You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
- You have realistic expectations
- You are a non-smoker
- You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen
