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.
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.
