Am I a good candidate for breast reduction?

Q:

Currently I am 5'2 158 lbs. I have recently lost about 30 lbs hoping my breasts would reduce in size but they did not. I am a 36HH and have severe back and neck pain along with migraine at least 5 days a week. Do you think I would be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery and have my insurance pay for it?

A:

Jessica,

 

 Yes, you sound like a great candidate for a breast reduction. Check with your insurance plan/ carrier to see if breast reductions are a covered service. Remember insurance carriers dictate health care coverage not doctors. Insurance plans are like cars. Some are Neons others Yukons and rarely will you find a Cadillac. If your insurance plan does not cover breast reductions consider changing plans or have a breast reduction as a cosmetic procedure. Many ASAPS members offer package pricing for such procedures. Best,
