Since Laura asked, I figure there are more people out there who may want to know what I had to do to get insurance to approve it. Well, Benjamin's insurance approved it with no problem. My new insurance required 3 months of documentation of my breasts bothering me. I had nasty skin stuff under my breasts, so for the past 3 years, I have gotten prescribed yeast medication to get rid of it. That never worked at all and I gave up on medication all together cuz it was impossible to keep moisture away! So, I had a little documentation from my OB since she was basically the only doctor I had seen in a year. Luckily, I started seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis as well. Even more lucky, I had seen them for over 3 months!

Every insurance requirements are different. The insurance lady at the plastic surgeon's office really helped me. She knew exactly what the insurance company required without even talking to the company. My OB did refer me to the plastic surgeon, so that may be all that is needed. I went in uneducated about the insurance side of things, but I knew a lot about the surgery itself. You can actually Google what specific insurances require for a breast reduction (technically called a reduction mammoplasty). Hope that helps!
