Am I qualified to get a breast reduction and have my insurance cover it?

I am 17. Im 5’3 and my bra size is 32G (DDDD). I have horrible back pain all the time and it interferes with my life. I have difficulties with my sport that I play (wrestling) because of the back pain. It weighs down my chest & I can't work out like I need to. I cant see my feet nor can i see when i shave my legs. I am tired of endless back pain 24/7.

This is a common issue for many women with larger breasts. See your local board certified plastic surgeon who can advise you on how to proceed. Some insurances exclude breast reduction coverage, but most require a mandatory amount of breast reduction that a patient and surgeon must follow. Symptoms should be documented by your primary doctor. Your local doctors can help. Best wishes!
