Are there any companies that offer assistance to get a tummy tuck or like a mommy make over. I had gastric bypass in 04 I was 350 and currently 179 but I have severe excess hanging skin and cant afford it to have it removed . I am a mother of 3 kids that would like to see if there is any help out there.

We do offer low cost financing and even in house financing if patient doesn't qualify.

Thank you for sharing your question. The amount of skin excess that develops after MWL can be significant and I am sorry to hear of your difficulties. There are available finance companies like CareCredit and Alphaeon that may allow you to space payments out over months to years to better afford the procedure or you may inquire as to local plastic surgery training programs for residents clinics to get discounted pricing.

Thanks for your excellent question! Also congrats on the weight loss! Losing that much weight is an amazing accomplishment! You will need to be examined by a board-certified plastic surgeon first, to see if you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Based on what you are describing, Insurance may cover what is called a panniculectomy. With this, excess skin is removed, however Insurance will not pay for rectus abdominis plication which is part of a tummy tuck. Sometimes, this can be combined with insurance so part of the operation is considered cosmetic and part of it is considered insurance. In addition, to help defray the cost of surgery, you may want to look into being operated on buy a resident cosmetic surgery clinic at an Academic institution where they have a plastic surgery residency program. In addition, normally with this amount of weight loss, you may need several procedures to reach your goals
