Breast reconstruction revision covered by my insurance? (photos)

10 yrs ago I had reconstruction surgery on my breasts after mastectomy. My right nipple has sunken in on the top and no nipple on the left. Im wanting to get this corrected, can it be corrected and would it be covered?

Revision to breast reconstruction

Yes, reconstruction revision should be covered by your insurance. I would recommend either going back to your original plastic surgeon or calling your insurance company and asking which plastic surgeons are in your covered network. From your photos it appears that your revisions should be decently straightforward.
