Insurance requires 880 grams
Several Doctors have suggested a breast reduction for me due to several back surgeries, including spinal fusion; I am currently a 40 G/H cup. I am 51 and always, even a college athlete, 5'8" and 150 pounds had a size DDD cup. Now. In order to get the breast reduction covered, my insurance is demanding a minimum of a 880 gram reduction; my doctor suggested 440g.
Is 880 safe for my blood supply and to prevent nipple loss? I don't want to be OMG you just are small now when I am big boned and a big gal now (228#). I have enough body image issues with loss of ability to do much physically! I would like no more than 3 cup sizes down. PLEASE respond!
