WA state... looking into getting panni and br



Recommended Posts

Anyone in WA with Regence Uniform (state employee insurance), get a panniculectomy and/or breast reduction after weight loss? I am 1 year post op from RNY and down from highest of 268.8 to 156.8. My insurance appears to cover a panniculectomy after 18 months. Sounds like a breast reduction might be covered as well? Some have suggested doing that and paying for implant etc (i want to even them out as well).

Any surgeons in the Olympia area you suggest?

I'm hoping for a breast reduction as well. Do you think insurance will cover it after wls?

Just a quick note that I had a breast reduction done in 2014 (surgery was 2011). My breasts were very uneven but I did not want implants. The surgeon basically told me “I had enough material to work with!” It was the best decision ever. I love my breasts; I am a 36 B and they feel and look very natural, even and I still have sensation in my nipples. So before you go an implant route, consider what they can do with what you have. And no, I was self pay for everything.

Thanks for the info. I'm was a DD, now I'm a D. I wouldn't want to be smaller than a large C, so not sure it would work with implant, but I will definitely find out.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
