When patients in Bethesda seek a plastic surgeon for their breast surgery, they want a doctor who is board certified, experienced, and well-known around the Washington D.C. area. Dr. Roger J. Oldham has more than 25 years of experience and has been board certified for nearly the same amount of time. Breast reduction surgery is among these and is common for women who are dissatisfied with the large size of their breasts. They desire smaller breasts that more nicely fit the proportions of their body, as seen in these pictures of patients before and after breast reduction surgery with Dr. Oldham.
If you’re considering Breast reduction surgery and want to know if insurance will cover it, Dr. Oldham is here to help. Within the last decade, health insurance providers have been tightening their wallets when it comes to breast reductions. Though doctors can recommend a patient to have a breast reduction because it will relieve lower back pain and improve overall quality of life, insurance companies require significantly more documentation of the problem and a paper trail of the history of solutions including weight loss, chiropractic alternatives, physical therapy, etc. So, if you’re interested in having your insurance cover your procedure, you should contact them to inquire about their eligibility requirements. Doing your homework could end up saving you money.
If you have more questions about breast reduction surgery including when you could be scheduled, price estimates, and other procedure details, feel free to call Dr. Oldham to schedule your consultation and speak to Janet, our patient counselor.
