Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
After having analyzed all the information provided to us, i can realize that you have very large breasts for your height and weight, and can be responsible for head, back, neck and shoulder pain.
In the future may cause permanent osteo-articular damage in the back and shoulders and skin problems (mainly under the breasts). For for this reasons, certainly you need a breast reduction surgery.
You may be able to have a breast reduction covered by insurance in light of your physical symptoms.
I recommend an in-office examination as well as a detailed discussion with a surgeon who you are comfortable with and who is a Double-Board Certified Plastic Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

You may or may not have enough tissue to be removed that fits the criteria for your insurance company. You can check with them for criteria and then go for consultation.

Breast reduction approval
The photos do not demonstrate the degree of ptosis and bra strap grooving that insurers like to see. That said, the preauthorization letter will assume greater importance. Keep in mind that each carrier has a minimum amount of gram weight which must be removed. In a petite woman, this may leave your breasts smaller than you might prefer.
