Dr. Godat’s approachable team is experienced in what insurance is looking for to be marked as eligible for coverage. Breast reduction isn’t solely for aesthetic purposes, which is why we may be able to help you have your insurance provider approve the breast reduction surgery.
After examination with Dr. Godat, we will provide you with a decision regarding medical eligibility.
Each insurance provider has its timeline to approve specific procedures. This entire approval process can take about 1-6 weeks. After consulting with us, we submit your preliminary details to your insurance company within three business days. We will notify you of the decision immediately.In cases where your insurance provider didn’t approve your surgery, we offer you a flexible payment plan.
Yes! We work with CareCredit to provide you with convenient, low-interest financing for any of our plastic surgery procedures.
CareCredit like a credit card that is used exclusively for healthcare and cosmetic surgery services.
In addition to using CareCredit financing for surgery, you can use your card for follow-up appointments or additional procedures so that you can schedule appointments to fit your lifestyle.
Dr. Godat’s 25 years of experience helping patients get to the correct size of their breasts has enabled him to use techniques to preserve your ability to breastfeed even after the breast reduction procedure.
Although breast reduction is an invasive procedure, Dr. Godat will prescribe you aftercare instructions to avoid scarring and forming keloids from the procedure area. You will also be scheduled for follow-up checkups to ensure that your healing stage goes smoothly to achieve the best results.
You will notice results immediately upon completion of the procedure. However, it may take three to six months for the swelling to subside, which means size will still decrease after your breasts have naturally adapted their new size and contour.
Breast reduction is permanent. Many factors can affect your breast sizes, such as hormonal changes, weight gain, aging, diet, and gravity.
This is why we conduct thorough examinations to ensure that we achieve long-lasting results. Be sure to consult with Dr. Godat on how best you could maintain the results of your breast reduction surgery.
