Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

I am seeing a growing number of (young and middle-aged) women with grossly oversized breasts.  Often times these women are so large, they present with neck and back pain, shoulder discomfort, associated skin conditions,and often have difficulty exercising because of the weight of this over sized breast tissue. While breast reduction surgery can improve the appearance of these patients, it is primarily a functional operation to reduce the strain that has been put on surrounding body parts by these oversized glands. Breast reduction can have a dramatic change on a person’s overall well-being and ability to exercise. It is often a life-changing procedure.  Many wonder if this operation will be covered by insurance or if breast reduction a cosmetic operation. If you are considering breast reduction, you should check with your insurance carrier for their list of coverage criteria.
