Have a few consultations to learn more about your options

Either the insurance company or the patient will have to pay for the cost associated with breast reduction surgery.  If you do not have medical insurance you can have a few consultations with board certified plastic surgeons and learn more about your options, limitations, recovery, incisions, and of course cost.  You can also find out more about the general guidelines that insurance companies have for approving breast reduction surgery.

Breast Reduction is available to you

Hi there-

It sounds like breast reduction would be worthwhile for you to consider, and could be performed for you on a fee for service basis (you would pay your surgeon for the care).

Breast reduction is associated with a very high level of patient satisfaction because it is so uniformly effective in improving the problems patients like yourself have from their large and heavy breasts.

Visit a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation.

Yes, a 20 year old can have a breast reduction without insurance. You would have to pay for the surgery yourself.

Self pay breast reduction

You can have any operation on a fee for service basis. Breast reduction is a wonderful procedure with a very high patient satisfaction rate. It is, however, expensive, based on the length of the procedure and the anesthesia and facility fees which accompany a longer case.

Breast Reduction with No Insurance?

Yes, it is possible to have breast reduction surgery without going through an insurance company. Either you will have to save up for the procedure, have the operation financed, or seek consultation at a Plastic Surgery  teaching institution.  Probably the best place to start would be in person consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons in your area.  educate yourself about the benefits of the procedure  as well as the potential risks/complications associated with the procedure.

Best wishes.
