Breast reduction?

How do you qualify for OHIP to pay for a breast reduction?  Is there a certain size you need to be?  I know my husband would be sad, but I like people looking at my eyes...

i had the girls lopped off in 1999. back then, the criteria was that you had to be a DD or bigger, that's it.  go to your family doc and get a referal to a plastics guy who specializes in tits.  he should take care of the rest.

I wonder if, when a child is growing up and deciding what to do, the say to themselves "When I grow up, I want to be a guy who specializes in tits"!!

oh i've known plenty of men who have had the life-long dream of tit-specialist! most of them weren't doctors, though.

I thought the criteria was so many cm's from shoulder to nipple as well as shoulder indents and pain.  .. hmm... gee.. think I qualify now lol..  I've got from a 54H to a 42D... sigh...  but it's all good.

I had it done by Dr. Wayne Carmen in Scarborough (he was "the" breast man back then) in 1996.  I was a DD, pushing on an E cup, but my problem was also that, since the "birth" of my breasties, they had NEVER been perky. I used to call them "goat tits" b/c they literally pointed DIWN, and it hugely affected my self-esteem. He took one look and said, OHIP will cover this, no worries. And they did :)

I went to C cup (which had progressed to a D a whiel back), but am back to a C again, now. Yea!

Good luck!

A friend of mine not a WLS person, was a 38D and she complained of back pain and had it covered.  In the end she only went to a 38 C.  but everything is back where it needs to be; once she had approval he did not care if they stayed the same he said , he did'nt even ask her how small until she was on the table she replied a half size smaller and alot higher LOL.
