Patient :Hi, I'm a 19 year old woman and I am desperate for breast reduction / removal. The problem is that I just can't afford it, and I was wondering what criteria I had to meet to get this on the NHS. I'm a C / D cup, and I realise that it is usually reserved for bigger, but I read that they take psychological problems into account. Frankly I'm terrified of breasts, and I've been uncomfortable since puberty. This has absolutely nothing to do with appearances, and I've even had a few suicidal turns. Please help!
