Who is a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
Women with chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain due to overly large breasts may find immense relief after breast reduction surgery. Other reasons you might consider breast reduction include chronic skin irritation under the breasts, nerve pain, and low self-esteem due to the size of your breasts.
You also might consider how your breasts are affecting your activities. Maybe you stopped exercising because it was uncomfortable or painful. Or maybe you simply cannot find any bras or clothing that fit you properly.
Women who are not candidates for breast reduction have persistent health problems such as heart disease or diabetes. If you are obese, much of what makes your breasts appear larger is fatty tissue, surgery is not advised until some of the weight has been lost.
Smokers are also advised against any plastic surgery procedure as it will interfere with the anesthesia and the risk of issues during and after the procedure will be greater.
Individual consultation with Dr. Baker will determine if a breast reduction is the correct procedure to help you meet your aesthetic goals. During the consultation, Dr. Baker will ask about your medical history and review any specific goals or expectations that you have for the procedure.
Your surgeon will also evaluate the placement, shape, and size of your breasts. They may also take measurements and photos. The consultation is the perfect time to address any questions or concerns you might have about the procedure and results.

Preparation for Breast Reduction Surgery
Since breast reduction is a plastic surgery that uses general anesthesia, your surgeon will recommend certain steps to prepare for your procedure. You will be asked to provide a list of your current medications to ensure that none of them will react poorly with the anesthesia or affect recovery.
Your surgeon may also want to conduct lab testing or a medical evaluation to ensure that your procedure goes as smoothly as possible. If you have any preparation questions, feel free to contact your surgeon to ask!
