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.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
