An important part of deciding to undergo a breast reduction is first understanding the price such a surgery entails and how best to pay for it.
In this article, we will go into more detail about the different methods used to finance a breast reduction.
How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?
Understanding how much your breast reduction will cost is a vital part of the planning process.
At the CREO clinic in London, breast reduction surgery begins at £8,900.
Every surgery is tailored to the specific needs of the patient; as a result, the final cost breakdown will only be available after a consultation.
Your final cost will cover your surgeries and all postoperative care, including your compression bra and consultations with your surgeon throughout your recovery.
Is Breast Reduction Covered By Health Insurance?
In general, you are unlikely to be able to use your health insurance to cover a breast reduction.
However, as breast reduction can resolve a medical need, such as back pain, some insurers may consider covering the surgery if a specialist confirms that it is a necessary treatment.
Can I Get Breast Reduction on the NHS?
It is unusual for breast reduction to be covered on the NHS.
However, it can be covered in certain circumstances depending on the requirements of your regional NHS trust. If you are suffering from acute medical issues as a result of very large breasts, you may meet the necessary eligibility criteria for coverage.
How to Finance a Breast Reduction
It is crucial to feel comfortable with the financial side of your surgery in order to allow you to begin the planning process with a sense of calm and confidence.
Some breast reduction candidates see fit to look to a third party for help with funds.
Plastic Surgery Loan
Whether to fully or just partly cover the cost of your breast reduction, a cosmetic surgery loan can be a way to bridge a gap in your finances.
Different lenders offer a variety of amounts and interest rates, so be sure to consider these factors before making a final decision.
Work with a Medical Finance Provider
A specialised medical finance provider can be a solution that allows a cosmetic procedure to be paid in installments.
The CREO Clinic partners with Chrysalis Finance, which provides our patients with 0% interest finance over 12 months (subject to change – check with CREO representatives before applying).
Longer financing periods are available with APR.
