Hello Grandma,

Thanks for your question.

Every insurance company is different regarding coverage for reconstructive surgery after weight loss.  This is also highly variable depending on location on the body.

I recommend you seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can discuss your surgical options with you and then submit to your insurance company to see which procedures, if any, they would cover.

Good luck!
