My seventeen year old daughter had the Pectus Excavation surgery using a bar seven years ago. The outcome of the surgery was great, however, she was left with deformed breasts. Being a seventeen year old and very self conscious, she is becoming more and more withdrawn due to her appearance. Would yiou be able to give me some idea of whether cosmetic surgery would be something that our insurance would cover or would they say it is cosmetic..live with it. She is becoming more and more depressed each day, her school work is slipping as she doesn't want to go to school.
