Breast Reduction Information

I am looking and hoping for some information on getting breast reduction surgery. Any Dr's office I call wants $50 for a consult and I just don't have that kind of money.
I am 32 years old and was recently measured as a 40 LL. The years of dealing with my chest are really starting to not only ware on me physically, but emotionally. All I ever want to do is cover my self up, so the "Daaang your boobs are HUGE" comments stop. Complete strangers feel the need to comment and sometimes even touch my breasts. Makes me feel like some kind of side show. Not to mention the physical activities I'm not able to do with out being in terrible pain. I've started to get headaches from the tension in my shoulders and neck. Is there anyone out there that might be able to suggest what to do? I'm currently in limbo with insurance and do not make enough money to pay out of pocket. Thank you so much.

Re: Breast Reduction Information

HI there. I havent needed a breast reduction, but my sister just went through it...first of all, a reputable cosmetic surgeon does not charge for keep looking. Someone out there will tell you what they can do for you and give you a price for free...
Secondly, if this is really causing you pain (and Im not doubting it is) hold off on the consult. Wait until you can get insurance. Insurance will pay for this if it can be proven that it is causing you physical difficulty or neck damage. My sister's insurance paid for the whole thing minus the deductible. BUT- if you are already "diagnosed" then it becomes a pre existing condition and it looks as if you only got insurance to cover your problem. Dont put the "problem" on paper until you have insurance, then find someone to work with your insurance company to get it approved.
Just my two cents...
Good luck.

Re: Breast Reduction Information

For someone like you insurance would probably cover it as it's not cosmetic. Wait till you get health insurance.

Best of luck to you.
