A breast lift (mastopexy) is considered a cosmetic procedure. It is never covered by insurance. All breast reductions result in a breast lift. In order for insurance to cover a breast reduction, the companies have strict requirements about the minimum amount of tissue that must be removed. This identifies women whose breasts are disproportionately large for their body size.
For many ladies who are uncomfortable, removing this amount would leave the breasts unacceptably small. Through All Beautiful Concerns, Dr. Abraham can perform a breast lift, with or without a reduction in size. A breast lift simply tightens the skin envelope around the breast tissue. The nipples are moved back up above the breast fold, improving the appearance of the breast.
