Many women suffer for years from problems associated with large breasts. This patient is one such example.
She came to see Dr. Lepore for Breast Reduction surgery. Because of her active and athletic lifestyle, she was having even more severe problems due to the size and weight of her breasts. These problems included bra strap pain, shoulder and upper back pain. She was even experiencing numbness radiating down her arms.
On her petite frame, her breasts were a 40 F to a 40 I-cup size, with the right breast substantially larger than the left. After extensive discussion, she decided to proceed with the Breast Reduction surgery.
In this case, where the patient is experiencing medical problems due to the size of her breasts, this type of surgery is indeed covered by medical insurance. Our staff is very experienced in working with insurance companies, to see that our patients can receive benefits.
This woman noticed almost immediate relief from the type of pain and other symptoms she was having. She is thilled to move on with her life, and activities in more comfort. And, she's very pleased with the new appearance of her breasts.
