Q&A: Am I too young to have breast reduction surgery?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

I am 18 years old and I am a 36F. I have horrible back pain to where I don't want to get out of bed. Do you think I am to young to get the procedure done. Would it be safe for me to get them done.


James Hoyt, MD -

Breast reduction surgery sounds like the procedure you are looking for.  Most insurance companies will pre-approve this surgery.  However, they do sometimes require the patient have some sort of conservative treatment first, such as chiropractic or physical therapy.  Please give our office a call and we can go over what options we have for you.

Yes it is a safe procedure. I have done many patients that feel the same way.
