...if you were experiencing health problems as a result? I know a lot of people always talk about getting BIGGER ones but what about the other side? Sometimes insurance covers if your doctor gets involved and shows medical necessity so the cost isn't so prohibitive. Would you do it? Have you done it?

If you have any kind of health coverage, you should look into it, the surgery may be covered since you are in pain from your size. I believe even medicaid and medicare will cover it if it is proven that having the surgery would be medically helpful to you.

I have considered it though unfortunately mine arent quite large enough to cause serious health problems so my doc wouldnt even consider submitting it to insurance I guess chronic back pain isnt considered a good enough reason

Mine aren't so big as to cause problems for me, but if they were and getting them smallenated would make me feel better, I totally would. I would get a tummy tuck if I could, the babies kind of wrecked up the place and hernia surgery didn't help either.

I do have a friend that had it done. It was creating health problems for her for quite some time. She had it done in January and although there were a few minor complications she says that it really was worth. Insurance did cover it , in her case. Personally I guess I would do it as well if it was a health problem for me.
