If your abdominal dehiscence is originally from failure of healing of the anterior approach lumbar surgery, I would assume that you should be covered to repair the dehiscence. However, with what I know of insurance companies, they would take the hysterectomy into account and possibly use that as an excuse to not pay for the procedure. I would not call it a “tummy tuck” but call it what it really is, a repair of a rectus diastasis.
