Every year more than 100,000 women throughout the U.S. grow tired of coping with this burdensome condition and choose to undergo surgical breast reduction — also known as reduction mammoplasty.

Women commonly contact the Breast Reduction Center Los Angeles complaining of back, neck and shoulder pain, sleeping problems and severe discomfort when lying down, deep bra strap grooving, skin rashes and other conditions.

For those who do not qualify for breast reduction surgery, a breast lift may be advisable. If you have drooping, sagging, or flattened-out breasts, a breast lift (mastopexy) can give your breasts a more youthful appearance. The procedure can be performed with or without the use of implants, depending on your individual needs and desired results.
Will my insurance cover my breast reduction surgery?
When breast reduction is considered medically necessary, it may be covered in full or in part by a patient's insurance provider. Determining whether reduction is medically necessary can be tricky because insurance companies each tend to have slightly different guidelines for how this is determined, and sometimes the same insurance company's guidelines will vary from state to state or plan to plan. The only way to determine if breast reduction is medically necessary is through a consult and examination with a doctor. We can also help check to see if your insurance company provides insurance coverage for breast reduction with our free insurance verification.
In some cases, breast reduction surgery may be covered in part by your insurance company. However, if your Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 35, breast reduction surgery will not be covered by insurance, and it is not safe to perform. Furthermore, the procedure will only be performed on patients who want to reduce their breasts by a minimum of 2 cup sizes.
