What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction is a surgery to remove excess tissue and fat from a woman’s breasts. Although it’s usually considered an elective surgery, there are some cases when it may be necessary to improve function and reduce chronic pain due to overly large breasts.

How is Breast Reduction Performed?                        

Before surgery, you will be given anesthesia to keep you from feeling pain during the procedure. Your surgeon will recommend either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will begin breast reconstruction.

Is Breast Reduction Surgery Covered by Insurance?

Breast reduction surgery may be considered medically necessary if overly large breasts are negatively affecting a woman’s health. For example, some women experience back pain and problems because of the weight of their breasts. In this case, some insurance companies may cover the procedure. But, sometimes, breast reduction is considered an elective procedure and, in that case, most insurance companies will not cover it. Talk with your surgeon and your insurance company to find out what likely will be covered for you.
