After having 3 children and losing the weight before even leaving the hospital, my breasts are very deformed and I am unable to find a bra or bathing suit to even fit properly. I weighed about 160 pounds per child then returning to 100-110 pounds. There is just no way to keep them in a bra. Is it possible to get breast implants and breast lift through insurance coverage for this?

Insurance coverage for breast surgery
Usually insurance doesn't cover breast lifts

Insurance Usually Does Not Cover Breast Lift With Implants
Unfortunately, breast augmentation and mastopexy are both considered to be cosmetic procedures by insurance companies. Under these circumstances, coverage would be denied and payment would be the patient’s responsibility.
Cost and insurance for breast lift
Cost is geography dependent. In Florida it runs $8000-10000. More important than price is safety and experience. Also, as an aside, breast lift, has never been a covered procedure with any insurance carrier unless it is to match a breast reconstruction for breast cancer.
Implants and insurance coverage
In my experience, insurance covers only procedures that are medically necessary. Breast implants and lifts are usually elective procedures and not covered by insurance.
Breast Augmentation/Mastopexy and Insurance?
The breast augmentation/mastopexy procedure is considered a medically unnecessary/cosmetic procedure regardless of the causes of the breast hypoplasia/ptosis. Therefore, the procedure will not be covered by health insurances.
