Insurance approval for breast lift?

Wow, it's been 12 years since my DS. My life has changed so much and for the better in many ways. Finally I've decide I need to have some body modifying procedures. Truly I wanted to avoid it at all costs but my breast drive me crazy. They are so uncomfortable and give me so much grief with pain and rashes and sore shoulders from straps. I have a referral for a plastic surgeon and I am very nervous. Has anyone had luck getting their insurance to cover breast lifts or any of the contouring procedures? I am hopeful but realistic, my mother recommended I start one of those gofundme pages. I'm not great with the social sites and stuff. I'm not so sure how that will go or what to expect but I won't know if I don't try. Any advice or experience with a similar situation will be appreciated.

they might - I know a few people (not bariatric patients) who've had breast reduction surgeries covered because they were having lots of physical problems because of the weight of their breasts. Is any of this (pain and rashes) documented by your PCP? That kind of documentation might help your case...
