When is breast reduction medically necessary?


Breast reduction is deemed medically necessary when it causes pain or prevents that patient from living a normal life. Certain insurance providers may require specific criteria to be met to fund a breast reduction. Criteria can include overly large breasts causing pain to these areas: neck, shoulder, upper and lower back areas. Deeming a breast reduction medically necessary can require looking into the patient's history of doctor's visits.
