I wear a 40 DD. I am 5'3", I weigh 230 lbs, and I'm looking to get a breast reduction. Does boon-chapman pay for reduction?

Thanks for the question. At your height and weight your BMI is 40 and it puts you at high risk for elective surgery. We would not want to do your surgery until you were under a BMI of 35 and few insurance companies cover breast reduction if you are overweight.
