Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery can alleviate the symptoms of back and neck pain, shoulder strap grooving, skin irritation, and overall discomfort associated with disproportionately large breasts. Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size more proportionate to your body.
After breast reduction, the breast is reduced in size, as well as lifted and reshaped. Breast reduction may be covered by your health insurance when it is performed to relieve medical symptoms. Carefully review your policy to determine if this is a covered benefit under your insurance plan. Pre-authorization is required for reimbursement or coverage.
