Pro bono work?

I am a 42 years old I had a baby 16 months ago my breasts are incredibly huge and heavy and no longer are as firm and I need a revision. My back and my and upper body is sore due to this. I am taking prescribed medication for the pain. Pro bono work?

I would encourage you to see board certified plastic surgeons in person for evaluation and recommendations. If your breasts are DD cup size or larger and you have the symptoms mentioned, you likely qualify for breast reduction surgery. This would typically be covered by most health insurance plans. Surgeons generally can provide you with a quote for office based surgery on a self-pay or financed basis, which can be much more reasonable than the same procedures when done at a hospital facility (due to high hospital fees). It is unlikely that you will find surgeons that will do free surgery, though a residency training program typically has a sliding scale based on income. Finally, breast reduction surgery is one of the most satisfying procedures for patients. You will almost certainly be really pleased you chose to have it done. Best Wishes

You first should consider if you qualify for your insurance to cover a breast reduction. Your second option would be to look into financing options (companies like CareCredit or Prosper Healthcare Lending). Third, you could check with local plastic surgery residency programs if they have reduced rates for resident training clinics. Best of luck.
