Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. Don't shoot the messenger here, but cosmetic surgeries and/or procedures must be medically necessary and usually prescribed by a doctor to be tax deductible or covered by any insurance company. If the cosmetic procedure is not medically necessary, it is considered personal expense and therefore non deductible or covered by insurance.
