Scoliosis and Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question.

I would agree that insurance coverage in your situation is extremely unlikely. I would suggest that you gradually save  for the procedure and have the procedure done when you are in a financially stable place.

Best wishes.

Forget insurance. It is an exercise in futility. Get a piggy bank and start saving. Breast implants are only $4400 at Lake Tahoe Plastic Surgery. We have many patients that start their saving plan with us. Send $50-$100 every week and you'll have it in less than a year. We also have had quite a few patients with scoliosis who have had unequal augmentation and look perfectly normal now.  Dr Foster

Breast asymmetry from scoliosis

Breast and chest asymmetry is common with scoliosis and implants can help. Maybe, just maybe, your insurance might allow the procedure due to a congenital anomaly of the chest and breast. An insurance predetermination can sort things out.
