Why Choose A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon and be confident you are in the care of a highly-trained surgeon you can trust.
Breast reconstruction costs can vary. A surgeon's cost for breast reconstruction may vary based on his or her experience as well as geographic location.
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for breast reconstruction, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
The Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act is a federal law passed in 1998 that requires all group health plans that cover mastectomies to also provide coverage for reconstructive surgery as well as other post-mastectomy benefits (such as an external breast prosthesis or lymphedema treatment). Breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer is considered a reconstructive procedure and should be covered by health insurance. However, your coverage may only provide a portion of the total fee.
