A woman with overly large breasts has discomfort few can appreciate if they don't share the problem.
If you have this problem, you know that overly large breasts can do more than limit your wardrobe choices or affect your self-image. The condition can result in physical pain and discomfort. Breast reduction, leading to breasts of more proportionate size, can give you the ability to have a more comfortable and more active life.

In the video below, Dr. Brueck appears on American Health Journal to discuss breast reduction and the possibility that it may be covered by health insurance."
Breast reduction is a highly personal choice, one you should make only to fulfill your specific personal goals. It can be performed on a single breast or on both breasts. It may be considered a reconstructive procedure qualifying for coverage under health insurance when it is done to relieve medical symptoms. Pre-certification usually is required for coverage and reimbursement.
Breast reduction is best performed on breasts that are fully developed prior to surgery. Due to the removal of significant quantity of breast tissue, the ability to breast feed may be impaired. In addition, weight fluctuations and breast changes during pregnancy can affect the results of prior breast reduction procedures.
If you are considering breast reduction, the best place to start is with a consultation with a plastic surgeon who can discuss your specific, personal goals and evaluate your individual case. Consultations with Dr. Brueck take place in his office at 3700 Central Avenue,Fort Myers, a world-class facility for plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, incorporating the most advanced technologies and treatment therapies for the very best in surgical and non-surgical patient results.

Thank you so much! It has been 7 weeks since my tummy tuck, arm lift and implants and the results are incredible. Scarring is minimal and I was able to return to work after 2 weeks! After having a prior breast reduction and then losing 140lbs, my body was left with so much extra skin,it destroyed myself esteem. Since the surgery, I have more self esteem now than I have had in my entire life!
I was comforted by the 3 consultation sessions to ease my anxiety prior to surgery. Your calming demeanor and patience with the endless questions I had made it so I never once felt pressured or rushed. Your staff is top notch; especially Shy!
Thank you for making my dream affordable! Thanks Again, - LP
