be careful with this. my insurance covers a panni..and breast reduction.. but after my consult with my dr and she showed me what the ins will cover vs what could be done.. i am not going to go through the insurance. the panni only covers the skin below the belly button.. i have a lot more skin than that to be taken care of. and for the breast reduction there needs to be the amount of tissue there to remove. you also have to have medical issues that require the panni and breast reduction with all of the issues documented through the dr.. rashes, infections, in ability to move.. for the breast reduction, soreness. indents in shoulders, cup size has to be larger than a ddd.. marks left on upper abdomen from them constantly rubbing against it.. i used to have all that, but since the weight loss i dont.

I went to a plastics DR and told him what I wanted and then he submitted everything to the insurance. I had wanted a Tt, a boob lift and my legs done. My insurance only covered the Tummy Tuck

How did you get them to cover it? What kind of documentation did you need?

He put it in as having skin issues under my hanging belly. Even though I didn't 🙂

You can try to keep in contact with your dr to see if he can refer you to surgery for medical reasons

Talk to your dr about a surgery referral for the back pain from your loose skin apron
