Understanding Out-of-Network Coverage

Out-of-network insurance coverage for plastic surgery varies widely and typically depends on the nature of the procedure. Cosmetic surgeries, primarily for aesthetic enhancement, are generally not covered. Reconstructive surgeries—deemed medically necessary—are more likely to receive coverage. This includes procedures like breast reconstructions post-mastectomy or surgeries to correct congenital abnormalities or repair damaged tissues after a traumatic event. While out-of-network services can be partially covered, they often involve higher deductibles and out-of-pocket costs. Pre-authorization is usually required to establish medical necessity and secure coverage. Patients should verify specific policy details and potential coverage with their insurer and surgeon’s office beforehand.

Navigating Your Insurance

In-Network Providers

When a healthcare provider is in-network, it means they have a contract with your insurance company. This agreement allows patients to receive services at discounted rates established in the contract. As a result, patients usually pay less when they visit an in-network doctor. Dr. Aydin is not considered an in-network provider.

Out-of-Network Providers

Dr. Aydin is considered an out-of-network provider for medical procedures, meaning he has not agreed to a contract with your insurance provider. While he still accepts PPO insurance, coverage and costs may vary because no contract is in place. While you may pay higher costs, choosing an out-of-network provider like Dr. Aydin can offer benefits not available with in-network options.

Why Consider an Out-of-Network Provider?

Due to their complexity, certain cosmetic and reconstructive procedures warrant considering an out-of-network provider. These include breast reconstruction post-mastectomy, rhinoplasty for functional improvements, intricate hand surgeries, lipoma removal, and facial reconstructions after trauma or disease. In each of these cases, expertise matters because it can reduce scarring and improve aesthetic and functional outcomes. Out-of-network options allow patients to prioritize the surgeon's expertise over cost, ensuring access to top specialists whose outcomes do more than just correct the issue. They create beautiful results that also improve your overall quality of life.

Choosing a Surgeon You Trust

No matter what insurance you have, we recommend choosing a surgeon you trust to give you the highest quality of care. Rather than focusing solely on whether your surgeon is in-network or out-of-network, some things to consider when choosing a medical provider include the following.


If you've previously seen a surgeon and built a rapport, it might make you feel more secure or comfortable. If they're in-network, that's a bonus. If not, opting for them as an out-of-network provider lets you maintain this important relationship, which can be a strong reason to go out-of-network if necessary.


Consider whether a physician offers the specific treatments or procedures you need now or might need in the future. This is crucial for both immediate and long-term healthcare planning and should be considered when choosing between in-network and out-of-network providers.


Seek the highest quality care available. Having more options among providers might lead to accessing a better facility or a more seasoned surgeon. These aspects are significant when contemplating any surgical procedures, regardless of the network status.


Choose a surgeon whose location and office hours accommodate your lifestyle. Consider the facility's proximity to your home or work and its size and condition. These factors are important whether you are considering in-network or out-of-network options.
