What is the procedure for breast lift. Is this surgery is possible post 45 and can we claim the insurance for that?

You can get a major introduction to just Breast Lift Surgery in Women (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/breast_lift_mastopexy/index.html) by starting at this link and then following arrows to read the entire encyclopedic discussion. Scars For Breast Lift (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/breast_lift_mastopexy/skin_scars_breast_lift.htm) as well as internal scars depend on method used and surgeons skills.

Insurance and Breast Reduction (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/breast_red_crit.html) was very difficult and varied so much while I was in practice. Breast lift alone was often considerd cosmetic and not covered by insurance, but is may be something that may have happened with patients After Weight Loss (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/a/after_weight_loss/index.html)

From your earlier posts Female Breast Reduction Insurance Issue (http://www.abodybeautiful.com/forum/index.php/topic,811.msg1565.html#msg1565) are you referring to pure Breast Lift alone or Breast Reduction (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/breast_reduction/index.html) where the breasts are both reduced in size and lifted? If that is the case, the better place to learn the methods would be in that last large part of my site.

Hope this helps,
