Do health insurance companies cover breast lift surgery?

ANSWER

Most breast lifts are considered cosmetic surgeries, so health insurance companies usually don't cover them unless they're done as part of a mastectomy reconstruction.

Check with your health insurance company in advance so you're clear on what costs you'll need to pay.
