Breast reduction is often covered by insurance companies on the basis of the very symptoms you are experiencing.  Criteria for overage is based on your height, weight, photos, the estimated amount of breast tissue to be removed and a letter from your plastic surgeon justifiying that the surgery is not cosmetic

You would want to discuss the volume of tissue removed and your ultimate size with your surgeon.
