  • Insurance can cover it if it is causing you health problems. I knew a lady who had her breast reduction all payed for by her insurance company. If you're paying out of pocket, we're talking at least $5,000. More if it's a better Dr. You'll have to research Dr.'s in your area to find the best one for you.

  • No idea. You should start to do research about surgeons where you live. Also, you should talk to your insurance company; a lot of insurance companies refuse to pay for breast reduction surgery. They may also be able to help you find a good surgeon that they are willing to pay for.

  • I second checking with your insurance. They might cover it. Talk to your regular doc and see if they can refer you to someone.

  • Doesn't it depend on where you live? I know a couple people that had this done and were thrilled after they had the surgery. I know they were so unhappy before.
