Removing 482 grams from each breast?
I am 5' 6 1/2 inches tall. I weigh 175 pounds and am a size 10/12. My bra size is a 38 DD or DDD depending upon the bra. My insurance company just approved a breast reduction requiring to take out more tissue (482 grams) than what my surgeon suggested (300 grams). I am nervous that if he takes out the amount the insurance is requiring I will have little or no breast. I do want and need a reduction, but I do not feel that 482 grams each is necessary. From what I am reading on the internet that equates to about a pound from each. I have been told that I have dense breast, which is why I have to have breast sono's done in addition to my yearly mamos. What size cup will I be? If the surgeon does not take out exactly what the insurance company wants, will they absolutely not cover the cost? Also, when they way the tissue, does that include any excess skin or fat from the sides? Thanks!
