Does OHIP cover breast implants for tuberous breast deformity? And how much would it be without insurance?
Doctor Answers 2
Unfortunately, though Tuberous breast constriction is considered a deformity and many women seek surgery to correct it, OHIP does not consider this a necessary surgery and doesn't cover the cost. There are degrees and characteristics for this condition and you may fall somewhere on the spectrum. Often a lift procedure is combined with breast implants in order to reshape, release constriction and round out the breasts. The best way to determine what your needs and options are is to meet with a board certified Plastic Surgeon in person for consultation.
