The insurance of cosmetic surgeries is suitable for every adult person with German or Austrian residence who undergoes an aesthetic treatment and doesn´t want to be stuck with the costs incurred in case of complications.
Plastic and aesthetic surgery procedures are only rarely covered by health insurance. If the treatment is paid for privately, any follow-up costs that may arise are only partially covered by health insurance, or not even at all. If serious complications occur and, for example, an emergency treatment or emergency surgery are necessary, the health insurance company can claim these costs back from you. The costs for this can be very high and financially ruin those affected.
However, medically necessary corrective surgery in your beauty clinic is also covered up to 10,000 euros. This can be, for example, a breast implant exchange in case of capsular fibrosis, which is not an emergency operation, but is also very expensive and must be paid for privately by those who do not have cosmetic surgery insurance.
A cosmetic surgery insurance protects you from any costs that may arise in the event of complications during or after a planned cosmetic procedure. Follow-up costs of cosmetic surgeries are usually not covered by health insurance and can place a heavy financial burden on patients afterwards. A insurance helps to mitigate these financial risks.
