Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction?

A good candidate for breast reduction surgery is someone who:

  • Experiences physical symptoms caused by large and heavy breasts, such as back and neck pain, shoulder grooving, rashes or infection, and difficulty finding clothes that fit properly.
  • Has realistic expectations about the results of the surgery and understands the risks and potential complications.
  • Is in good overall health, with no medical conditions that would increase the risk of complications during or after the surgery.
  • Is at a stable weight and does not plan on losing a significant amount of weight in the future, as this can affect the final result of the surgery.
  • Is done having children as pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the shape and size of the breast.

Overall, breast reduction surgery is a highly individualized procedure and the best candidates are those who have specific physical symptoms caused by the size and weight of their breasts, have realistic expectations and understand the risks and potential complications, and are in good overall health. It is important that the patient and the surgeon have a good communication and the surgeon will take into account the patient's symptoms, overall health, and goals to determine if the surgery is appropriate.
