Contrary to popular belief, not all plastic surgery is cosmetic. A portion of the plastic surgery field is required to live and function at a normal capacity.
For example, certain traumatic incidents can adversely affect the body’s ability to perform basic functions, such as talking, smiling, or eating. Plastic surgery can often improve these functional impairments.
Will Workers Compensation cover plastic surgery?
If plastic surgery is required due to an on-the-job injury, it is quite possible that the carrier may pay for the surgery. For example, if you have scarring after burns, had previous cosmetic surgery, which was compromised because of the trauma, experienced a deep laceration, there is the distinct possibility that Workers Compensation will cover.
The following work related injuries may require the treatment, surgery, or expert medical opinion by a plastic surgeon experienced with workers’ compensation cases:
Dr. Zaydon has been affiliated with Workers Compensation patients for well over 20 years. Most procedures are performed in our in-office surgical suite and the patient is returned to work as soon as possible.
