How long do I need health insurance before getting a breast reduction?

Breast Reduction - Insurance
Thank you for your inquiry. Each insurance company has their own criteria and guidelines. I would first consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you're a candidate for the breast reduction procedure. Your surgeon will do a breast examine and discuss your options. Most insurance companies look at your height, weight and BSA to determine the required amount of grams to be removed for an approval. Once you meet with your surgeon, then you can check to see which insurance company and plan will work best for you. There are many financing options available to you as well, if you'd rather not go the insurance route. Best of luck!
