Hi Erica, The best way to find out about "coverage" for a breast reduction is to setup an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon. The insurance company is looking for overall size of reduction in combination with medical symptoms of back and neck pain or shoulder pain, rashes under the breasts and difficulty with activities. At times conservative treatments including physical therapy and medical creams can resolve the issues, and other times they do not. We as most plastic surgeons have plenty of experience dealing with the process. Most women are extremely satisfied with this surgery.
