Will insurance pay for male nipple reduction surgery
I'm a young dude in college and I have the most wicked nipples that stick out too far. You can see them when I wear a t-shirt or any shirt for that matter. I really need to get these nips fixed. They did not even get like this til like I was a junior or senior in high school. It's not weight gain either i'm well underweight it's just my nipples that stick out. Does anyone know if insurance will pay for this procedures?? And what plastic surgeons do male breast reduction surgery just for the nipples? I'm in Key West so any Florida based doctors would be awesome I want to make sure I got to the best because I don't want my nipples messed up more.

sorry mister but i don't think insurance will cover diddley squat. they really only cover something if it's causing a medical problem and even then they try and be cheap on ya. i would guess the cost of nipple reduction surgery isn't that much though because it's a pretty simple thing.

Yes insurance will pay for male nipple reduction surgery {or any nipple reduction procedure} as soon the war on terrorism is over and hell freezes over.

Insurance will not pay for nipple reduction surgery or any other surgery which is purely cosmetic. THe only circumstance in which your health insurance may partially cover plastic surgery are reconstructive cases or where the problem intereferes with your health, such as excessive scar tissue which prohibits normal muscle movement.
