Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery accepts most health insurance plans, including Medicare, for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. We do not accept nor does insurance pay for Cosmetic Surgery.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services along with other health insurance companies consider surgery that is intended to improve appearance or boost self esteem as cosmetic surgery.  This type of surgery is elective and self pay.
