Patient Comments (6)

I had a breast reduction done because of back and neck pain my insurance covered most of the cost. When I had my consult, Dr. Fleming flipped through his book quickly.

When a breast reduction is performed for medical reasons, the insurance companies will require that a certain amount of weight be removed from each breast proportionate to the patients BMI. Overweight patients typically require more weight to be removed from each breast compared to normal weight patients. This means that sometimes a patient will have to accept a smaller cup size than they want if they want insurance to cover the cost. In these cases a cosmetic option is always offered.

I would recommend Dr. Fleming to anyone who is looking for a cosmetic surgeon. He did my breast reconstruction after I had a double mastectomy and he was so caring and compassionate, words cannot express how important this was to me at the time. I am forever grateful for him.
