Many patients who are dissatisfied with some aspects of their nipples or areolas may not be aware of the cosmetic procedures designed to improve their appearance.
It is very important for patients to do their homework regarding their insurance coverage for breast reduction surgery.
Many women find disproportionately large breasts to be a nuisance – they can cause back and neck pain, interfere with sports and other activities or simply draw too much attention to one's appearance.
I am often asked, "What operation has the happiest post-op patients?" The answer is easy – breast reduction.
As I explained in my previous post, large breasts (macromastia) can cause physical problems that interfere with a woman’s daily functioning. If you are considering breast reduction surgery, first read your insurance policy. If your insurer lists reduction mammaplasty as a policy exclusion, you may not even get coverage for a consultation to discuss whether surgery is appropriate for your symptoms.
One of the most commonly requested and most predictably successful plastic surgery procedures is female breast reduction. Many women suffer from symptoms caused by the weight of their breasts. Unfortunately, nonsurgical treatments often provide little or no relief.
