My breasts are about two cup sizes different.

Question: My breasts are about two cup sizes different. Is it possible to get a breast reduction in just the larger breast? Will health insurance cover this?

Answer: I really do not know if health insurance would cover it. I would say that they probably would in a younger patient because they would consider it a deformity, but I have never run into this situation for only reducing one breast. I certainly have done this in the case of breast cancer reconstructions doing a reduction of one side for symmetry and I would say most reductions or lifts take off a different amount on both sides, but I am afraid I just cannot answer your insurance question. The best thing is to ask your insurance company. It certainly is possible to do the surgery on one side technically, but the insurance question is really a question for the insurance company. Sorry, I cannot be of more help on this one.
