  • I had this done about two years ago. My insurance did pay for it but I did see the bill and it was just over $5000. The docs automatically do a lift with the reduction.

    Good luck!

  • I had it done this past May, and it cost $9300, also covered by insurance because I had back problems from such large breasts.

  • Talk to your doctor he/she may see you as a good candidate for the reduction, if that's the case check with your insueance comapny and see if they will cover it with your doctors referral. I say this because I did this and because my dr. recommended it I only had to paya $100 co-pay.

    It's worth a try!!
    Good Luck...you'll be amazed at how much better you'll feel.

  • Maybe a good option for you would be to get some insurance no matter how insignificant an amount it may seem to pay because any little bit will help. I totally wish my insurance company would pay for cosmetic surgery that will improve the life of the candidate...it isn't always for improvment of the persons life, sometimes it's just vanity, I can totally understand that your issue isn't vanity.
