The question is, does this condition cause you intense pain? (either emotional or physical) Do you find it very difficult to function psychologically due to this condition? Is this condition contributing to neurotic syndromes? Is it acting as a handicap to your normal life functioning? Is this the prognosis of a medical doctor (a psychiatrist)? If so, then clearly, your insurance should cover liposuction to correct it.
It won’t of course, but this is not right. I am perfectly open minded to the notion that fat on the back can in theory cause psychological pain that is equal in magnitude to the physical pain that necessitates breast reduction. But a qualified representative of the medical community needs to clear this. I would tend though to believe that “fat backs” would in all likelihood not be considered a sufficient problem to be classed as medical, based on my experience with our current culture.
I can imagine exceptions, or even an alternative culture where this is considered so *important* that it *would* cause trauma and disability. My guess would be that small breastedness is not sufficient to entail a medical diagnosis on the basis of psychological condition, but flatchestedness is. Perhaps the fault lies in our culture. But how does this cure the individual who is susceptable to this pain? Surgery, it would seem, would be the most direct and reliable method of treating it.
And it works. Surgeons, and other observers, report a tremendous, immediate, and apparent relief of this type of burden in some breast augmentation recipients. A powerful transformation in attitude is really quite common. This has all the earmarks of a lifting of a great burden from the womans life, a burden that has tormented her since early adolescence.
