Before and After: Breast Reduction in Bethesda Maryland

If you have been suffering through the residual back and shoulder pain caused by oversized, and disproportional breasts, breast reduction surgery could be a solution to your aches and pains. Breast reduction surgery is a specialty of Dr. Roger J. Oldham, Bethesda board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of breast reduction surgery experience. If you’re considering breast reduction surgery, it is likely that you have heard the benefits from those who have undergone the surgery before. Patients often refer to breast reduction surgery as the best decision they’ve ever made due to the positive effects of reducing the size of overly large breasts.

Breast reduction surgery is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures among women, and the first question they ask is, “Will my health insurance cover the cost of breast reduction surgery?” Despite the overwhelming evidence of personal experience of hundreds of thousands of patients over the past decades, healthcare providers may still consider breast reduction surgery as a “cosmetic” procedure. However, some providers and plans will consider a claim for breast reduction if significant documentation of chronic pain/discomfort and whether the patient has sought alternative non-surgical treatments (physical therapy, chiropractics, etc.). One patient spoke of her experience: “I had a government employee health insurance plan and was surprised to find that they did not cover the cost of breast reduction surgery. But, all said and done, it was the best investment I’ve ever made. I was a 46 DDD/E and now I’m a 42 D. I was afraid the reduction would reduce my breasts by multiple cup sizes, but the doctor discussed my body’s proportions and we found a cup size I was happy with. A one-time cost has allowed me a lifetime of comfort in my clothing and with my self image.” To see pictures of patients like her before and after breast reduction surgery, visit Dr. Oldham’s photo gallery.
