Learn more about breast reductions and when it may be covered by your insurance!


Dr. Ramanadham:

Hi, so I want to talk to you all today about breast reductions. Women certainly can get this procedure for cosmetic reasons. However, some women do require it for medical reasons. Some of these can be extreme neck and back pain, it can be your bra strap digging into your shoulders, causing grooves. Patients can actually get rashes under their breasts as well and none of these symptoms improve with medications or physical therapy. And that's really when a breast reduction can help a patient optimize their quality of life.
