any surgeons provide discounted facial procedures
Apr 12, 2013

are there any Drs that offer discounted or free surgery for removal of excess fat and skin around the neck. This issue for me is so stressful and keeps me inside all the time.

Response from Dr. Henry

In some cases insurance will pay for treatment/surgery for HIV-related lipodystrophy. Suggest discussing with your HIV provider and seeking a least a consultation with recommended local plastic surgeon to assess costs and insurance payment options. KH
