Breast Reduction

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m 18 years old at height 5’4 and weigh 125lbs. I have breasts the size of 32DDD. I know I want to have a breast reduction sometime in life, and my question is if it’s worth having one before I have children?

A: When one undergoes breast reduction depends on how symptomatic one is from their large breasts. If they are heavy and painful and are interfering with your lifestyle then you do the procedure before children since you can get the benefits sooner rather than later. If they are large and not that uncomfortable then you wait and see what effect having children as on their sizes and the symptoms that are causing.
