Does Insurance Cover Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast surgery is a popular, growing surgery for millions of people across the United States. The results are typically quite satisfactory to patients. Occasionally, breast revision surgery is requested by a patient. Breast revision surgery is often requested after breast augmentation, to reduce, enlarge or restructure the shape of the breast.
Infection from implants, childbirth, breastfeeding, aging and other factors can influence a woman’s decision to undergo breast revision surgery. Many patients ask us if insurance will cover breast revision surgery. The answer to this is not always a yes or no; each case is different.
Some insurance companies do provide coverage for breast revision surgery, while others do not. The reasons for the breast revision surgery are often the determining factor for many insurance companies. If the reason for the surgery is related to dissatisfaction with implants, it is unlikely that insurance will cover breast revision surgery.
