I feel like I am brand new 🙂 Dr. Blechman the absolute best breast reduction plastic surgeon; he is truly talented and has been blessed with a gift. His bedside manner is stellar. He has a humble confidence which instills a great sense of comfortability in his patients. I believe he is the best plastic surgeon in New York. The practice director, Alina, is lovely, organized and attentive; great team! They helped me fill out all my insurance and made the entire process from consultation to surgery (and post surgery) so easy! He did a bi-lateral breast reduction for me; it has been life changing.

If you are wondering “will insurance cover my breast reduction surgery?” a consultation at the Breast Reduction Center of NYC located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, NY with the best in class board certified plastic surgeon is a great first step. Your initial consultation will include a conversation with you about what aspects of your life you feel are being negatively affected by having large breasts. Generally, insurance will not cover breast reduction plastic surgery if your reasons are purely cosmetic. While we are happy to perform a breast reduction for cosmetic reasons this is considered a self-pay surgical procedure by insurance companies. If you feel the size of your breasts is causing you discomfort and interfering with your life – insurance companies may deem you an appropriate candidate to cover your breast reduction surgery. The clinical term for large breasts that cause pain or interfere with everyday life is “symptomatic macromastia”, and this is what an insurance company will be looking for to decide whether your requested breast reduction is medically necessary. If after your consultation at our Upper East Side plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NY we agree you are a candidate for insurance coverage for your breast reduction surgery our best in class team will help you with all the necessary paperwork.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery? Typically, breast reduction surgery may be considered reconstructive and medically necessary when one or more of the following criteria are met:
- Your breasts are creating medical problems such as shoulder, back, or neck pain.
- Your bra straps are causing significant grooving in your shoulders.
- Your breasts are causing bad posture characterized by hunched over shoulders and a curved back.
- You have limitations on physical activity impacting your ability to perform household chores, work duties, or exercise due to your breast size.
- You experience headaches or nerve compression syndromes due to the weight of your breasts.
- You develop rashes and/or infections on the trapped skin under your breasts.
Oftentimes, insurance companies will require a certain amount of weight to be removed from your breast. At the Breast Reduction Center of NYC, we generally recommend a reduction of 50% of the breast volume in order to reasonably expect to treat the signs / symptoms our patients experience from macromastia. Our extensive experience using this approach has allowed us to treat hundreds of women this way in a safe, expedient, effective, and relatively pain-free manner with quick recovery times and minimal complication rates.
Breast reduction surgery can be performed at any age but it is usually recommended to wait until breast development is complete. Dr. Keith Blechman, our top rated breast reduction specialist, will spend as much time as necessary to make you feel completely comfortable about your breast reduction surgery and will answer all of your questions. You will also be examined and your measurements will be taken. The size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin, and the placement of the nipples and areolas will be carefully evaluated and the expectations from the surgery will be fully explained.
