After a mastectomy removes one or both breasts, reconstructive surgery involves a series of procedures to rebuild the breast and reconstruct nipples. Some women choose to have additional procedures months or years later to improve the symmetry of their breasts, fill in areas with fat grafts, or refine their nipples. The Federal Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act stipulates that insurance plans providing mastectomy coverage must provide coverage for surgery done to improve symmetry between a reconstructed breast and the opposite breast (even a revision) and for nipple reconstruction. (To verify your coverage, pre-certify the procedure with your insurance carrier and request a predetermination of benefits.)
