Are there any surgeons who do pro bono breast reductions or the surgery at a reduced cost?

Q:

I am a 31 year old female from OH. I wear a 42 E bra, maybe even bigger. I am in extreme pain from by back, neck and shoulders, and I get head aches everyday. I cannot exercise because of them. I am in desperate need of a breast reduction but cannot afford it and my insurance will not cover the cost. I also suffer emotionally because of them and would like some help. Are there any surgeons who do pro bono breast reductions or the surgery at a reduced cost?
 

A:

There are some resident plastic surgeon clinics that are done through university settings that will sometimes do surgery for markedly decreased cost.  Check with the university plastic surgery residency close to where you are located and see if they have a resident clinic.  These are training plastic surgeons.  Hope this is helpful.  Good luck
