Mayo Clinic's approach

At Mayo Clinic, doctors who perform cosmetic procedures draw upon their vast experience to help provide exactly the treatment and care you need.


Mayo Clinic can address other medical needs at the same time. And most medical services you might need — doctor visits, testing, surgery, hospital care — are available under one roof. Your health care team will coordinate these services in a way that's convenient and efficient for you.

The clinic also offers a regenerative cosmetic service that brings together facial plastic surgeons, dermatologists, vascular surgeons and aestheticists to deliver services grounded in scientific evidence and the latest regenerative technologies.

Advanced technology

Cosmetic surgery patients have access to the same world-class medical professionals, facilities and technology and the same level of service available to every Mayo patient. Mayo is among the very few medical centers that's advancing standard treatments with regenerative medicine to provide new options for addressing people's needs.

Costs and insurance

Please contact your insurance company to verify medical coverage and to obtain any needed authorization prior to your visit. Often, your insurer's customer service number is printed on the back of your insurance card.

Facial-filler procedures are considered a cosmetic procedure and aren't usually covered by insurance. Exceptions might be made for people with HIV who need the procedure to manage side effects of HIV medication.
