German court rules big breasts are not a medical problem

November 28, 2008

A German court sided with insurance companies, saying they do not need to cover the cost of breast reduction surgery. The case was brought by a 38-year-old woman who suffered orthopaedic and physical problems due to the weight of her bossoms, bild.com reports. She had been advised by doctors to have breast reduction surgery.  Her insurance company claimed she was suffering from back problems because she was overweight, therefore refused to cover the costs of the operation. The court ruled that having a large bust is not a medical problem and as such insurers will only have to pay to correct breasts which are deformed.

Two and a half years ago, the same court rejected the case of a woman who thought her breasts were too small.
She wanted her medical insurance to cover a breast enlargement operation and claimed that she was physically harassed for her small boobs. The court declared then that small breasts are not an illness.
