Q: Can I pay for elective plastic surgery with the funds from a Health Savings Account?
A: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you cannot pay for elective plastic surgery using a Health Savings Account (HSA).
You can pay for cosmetic surgery if is prescribed by a doctor and is medically necessary.
You can get more HSA guidelines here (see #23).
