In brief: Primary

Your primary physician can refer but if you don't have a primary physician and you have knowlege of a ruputable plastic surgeon you could go directly.

many patients mistakenly think getting many recommendations from an orthopedic or neurosurgeon will help their chances of getting the surgery approved- your insurance company will either approve or deny it

In brief: Internist or GP

Your internist or general practitioner should be able to refer you.
Your gynecologist can also refer you.

In brief: Primary care

Best to get a referral by your primary care doctor for an evaluation by a plastic surgeon.
The primary care doctor will verify the presence of the indication for a breast reduction and strengthen your claim for insurance coverage.
