Will Insurance Cover my Breast Reduction?
- Asked by maple2012

I am 19, 5'4", 125 pounds, wear a 32G and am considering breast reduction. My neck and shoulders are always tight, my posture is bad, I have indents in my shoulders from my bra straps, and have terrible self confidence because of it. I also have trouble finding clothes that fit. Do you think my breast reduction could be covered by insurance?
Breast Reduction and Insurance Coverage?
I'm sorry to hear about the problems your breasts have caused, starting at an early age. Based on your description you may be an excelent candidate for breast reduction surgery.
Unfortunately, online consultants will not be able to definitively state whether any specific “insurance” will cover your procedure. You will need to consult with board-certified plastic surgeons in your area and check with your insurance company regarding your specific policy.
Undoubtably there will be some some “hoops” to jump through. The more documentation you have (for example, from your primary care doctor, physical therapist, chiropractor etc.) the better when it comes to obtaining insurance “authorization” for the procedure. This documentation and letter/pictures from your plastic surgeon will help you obtain authorization.
Good luck with your goals; breast reduction surgery tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.
