Breast reduction coverage


It sounds like you are inquiring about having a breast reduction covered by the NHS.   It is sometimes covered by health insurance plans in the United States.  It can be a long and difficult process though.  I can't speak to the NHS policies.

You sound like you have your hands full with the baby. If you have help at home I would investigate the surgery a little further
