I don't believe that the term "elective surgery" is ever used to describe a non-essential procedure done for purely cosmetic reasons.

The term elective surgery is what is used to describe non-essential procedures done for purely cosmetic reasons although it is also used for any surgery that is not immediately needed.
Do a Google search on "elective surgery" and you will see how prevalent the use of the term is for cosmetic surgery.

Responding to the original post, I've had clients that expressly stated in their medical plan that it wouldn't cover any costs that arose from having cosmetic surgery done simply for esthetic purposes (including any complications caused by that surgery). I realize that the original post related to STD, but this is an example of an extension of that policy decision.
