BOOBIES LOOKING GOOD !!! - Maryland

Hey everybody I'm getting breast reduction...

Hey everybody I'm getting breast reduction surgery next Monday (10/24/11) . Words cannot describe how I'm feeling.

I'm 18 years old, and I started growing boobs when I was 9. Now I'm a fully 38DD and I'm only 5'3 and my weight is 120. I've always hated my self for having large breast. I feel so insecure and have very low self esteem . My dad felt my pains but couldn't do anything because he has no money and also bad credit for loans. I thought I would never get rid of my large breast.

To make a long story short, I decided to try my insurance but many people told me that the insurance hardly pay for this procedure. I was discouraged. But I still went ahead and talked to my primary care provider. He told me flat out that the insurance would not pay for it and that I was wasting my time. I was discouraged again . But still I asked him for a referral to go see a surgeon . He gave it to me and there I went.

I explained to the surgeon my situation and she perfectly understood me. I told her I'm also interested in joining the military right after high school. So she file a claim to the insurance she also included my symptoms, me wanting to join the military . She did tell me that I might not get approve because I don't have any documentation from physical therapy , or chiropractor . Anyways she did file, and exactly three days later , I was Approved.

I was mad excited. My insurance ends in two months so I schedule the surgery right away. Insurance paying for it 100% I'm lucky. I'm on Medicare ( priority partners ) .

I just have one question. What can I do to reduce swelling , and recover quickly so that I can return to school because I'm taking two weeks off . Thanks for reading.

Aww thanks so much. Ive been getting alot of rest. My chest feels so tight and my breast, wow looks so small and perky. Pain is bearable. I think the surgery is definately worth it. Just buy alot of soft pillows it helps to keep your back, head and neck in a comfy position. I'm takin one day at a time. Again thanks for your wishes. I will be thinking of you too on the day of your surgery.

Thanks. Im feelin great. Pain was nothing I expected. there is hardly no pain. If I feel any pains, just pop in a pain meds. Works great. I think the worst part is waking up from the anesthesia. Feeling confused, very very tired and sore throat. And also vomiting. But the whole thing wears off hours later. I will post pics in about two weeks when most of the swelling has gone down. Swelling is not that bad because I took arnica montana pills a week before surgery. and im goin to continue taking it for another two weeks . it helps alot too. If youre wondering where I bought the arnica pills, since you live in maryland I bought it in Rockville ( vitamins store)
Anyways your big day is coming up soon. I will definately keep you in my prayers. Stayed blessed.

Hey everyone,
. Last time I posted was more than a year ago. Well I'm almost two years post surgery. And I'm so fortunate because I never had any complications. I never even went back for my post surgery appointments. That's how successful my surgery has been. Best decision I've ever made in my life. I love my breast.
I have been back and forth on your page for about a year. I'm glad that you have had success with your reduction. I have just started my mission to get mines. Like you I have priority partners. I saw my doctor yesterday, and before I even took my bra off he said "Yea, you need a reduction" LOL! He examined me and said it felt like I was carrying 10lbs on my chest. And it surely feel like it. Anyway he wrote my referral and gave me a prescription for some strong Motrin. I contacted PP as soon as I got home, and they told me he need to call in to let them know that this is definitely needed. So he told me to come back tomorrow, so we can do this together. They also said that they needed pictures to show. I figured once they see the pics and how my breast are close to my belly button at the age of 30, they will approve. I also have grooves in my shoulders. I'm pretty anxious, my appt with a plastic surgeon who takes the insurance is about 3 weeks. So I hope things go well. I would like to get mines done ASAP, because I just got into running and my breast have hindered me so much. Not only that I'm a parent, so the sooner the better. Mines is definitely medically necessary. I have a small paper trail of discussing the issue when I was 17 with a dr.. Getting xrays in my 20's for my back and then now. So fingers crossed!!! I'm determined!

Oh my goodness I wish you all the luck in the world. You will get approved. Please have faith and everything will be fine. Ask the surgeon when you go in for your appointment to put in all the symptoms and how the breast is tormenting you. reading your post you gonna get approved because it seems like your breasts are bigger than mine before my surgery. Wishing you luck. Keep me posted

Hi, when I met my surgeon two years ago, for an initial consultation, I didn't have anything. You have your chiropractic. I called the insurance and asked if they cover breast reduction. They answered yes if is "medically necessary" so they referred me to a surgeon. My surgeon was skeptical because she said I might not get approved because I have nothing to prove like physical therapy to at least ease the pain. She wanted me to wait and go see a PT so the insurance can see that I tried other method before resulting to breast reduction. Anyways long story short, I didn't listen to her. I told her to file. She took pictures of my breast and send it to the insurance. Three days later I myself called priority partners to find out and bang I was approved. So in my case my breast size was all they needed to see to see that it is medically necessary. If you wanna have some backup before you apply then is fine. It increases your chances. But my advice is call the insurance to locate you a surgeon, and reason with the surgeon to put it good words for you so they can see that is really medically necessary. The cost was about $11, 200 and it was covered 100% at holy Cross hospital. Have faith and good luck!

Dr. Fayazi Behnaz

SHE ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS AND KEPT ASKING IF I HAD ANY MORE QUESTIONS. SHE IS PREGNANT SO SHE DIDN'T REALLY SPENT SO MUCH TIME. SHE WAS KINDA TIRED FREQUENTLY I UNDERSTOOD THAT BECAUSE SHE IS ALMOST 8 MONTHS PREGNANT. THE OFFICE STAFF WAS GREAT I ONLY HAD TO WAIT LIKE 5 MINUTES DURING MY APPOINTMENTS. OVERALL I WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO ANYBODY WHO LIVES IN MARYLAND BECAUSE SHE IS A SKILLED SURGEON.
