While one third of the American population are obese, just five percent are in fact candidates for bariatric surgery. According to the American Society of Bariatric Surgery (ASBS), 200,000 Americans will undergo massive weight loss surgery this year, and 75% of them will later seek a plastic surgeon for body contouring.
Following Bariatric Surgery, modern insurance inclusion criteria for a ‘covered benefit’ for plastic surgery includes: greater than one year after Bariatric Surgery, greater than 90 pound weight loss, and a symptomatic pannus of the lower abdomen which extends beneath the lowest pubic hair line. Most insurance carriers will authorize a surgery called a ‘panniculectomy’ (the resection of a pannus).
