Breast reduction surgery is commonly performed to help relieve back pain and any psychical limitations caused by large, heavy breasts.
About Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction surgery is an excellent option for patients who are bothered by the size of their breasts. Common complaints that lead women to pursue breast reduction include chronic back and neck pain, grooving from their bras, inability to exercise, rashes around the breasts and general difficulty and interference with their daily activities.
Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery often achieve relief of back and neck symptoms, have improved body image and are able to exercise more vigorously. Overall, the surgery is well tolerated and has a very high satisfaction rate.
The goal of the surgical procedure is to reduce the size of the breasts and tighten the skin envelope in order to make the breasts a more appropriate fit for the patient’s body shape while also bringing the nipples up to a higher position when performed in conjunction with a breast lift or mastopexy.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery Covered by Insurance?
Many insurance plans cover the costs of breast reduction surgery in the appropriate patient. Patients who have a history of prior treatment of neck and back symptoms have a higher chance of approval. The patient’s height, weight, bra size, and prior symptoms are submitted for review prior to approval.
