Does insurance cover a breast reduction?
Your health insurance may cover your breast reduction surgery if you meet their criteria (height, weight, body surface area, body mass index), and they consider your surgery a medical necessity. Your board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon will be able to provide the necessary documentation on insurance coverage. Each insurance company has their own specific criteria and the criteria can change based on the plan you have with them.
How much does a breast reduction cost?
Breast reduction costs vary by surgeon, geographic area, and surgical technique. Be sure to ask your surgeon what your approximate costs will be based on your specific breast reduction surgery during your consultation.
The average cost for a breast reduction is $5,806*.
*The above statistic comes from the 2021 Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Databank Statistics, which were compiled using Aesthetic Neural Network (ANN) data from 294 participating plastic surgery practices across the US. This number only reflects standard procedure costs (surgeon and facility fees) and may not include other fees for anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, or other miscellaneous costs related to your procedure.
What should I consider when evaluating the cost of a breast reduction?
Choose your surgeon based on quality, training, and experience—not cost.
