I am 5'6 and wear between a 36DD-36DDD in a bra. I'd love to be a C cup or even just a single D. Am I a candidate for reduction surgery?

Hi Candy and welcome to the board. If I were you, I'd start with my OB/GYN to get some information and go from there.

I think you can get anything you want if you are willing to pay for it. If you are wanting to get your insurance company to pay, you may want to call your representative to find out what they require.

Hello, I am similar to your size but a bit larger (that all depends on the person so its hard to say...) My reduction surgery was just approved, no questions asked. I fully expected that the insurance would make me jump through hoops, but it was as easy as #1 going to my primary care physician and getting a referral, #2 one meeting with a plastic surgeon. I was really surprised that I was approved so easily. Good luck!
