Ask A Doctor Question:
I am a small woman with large breasts. 44 DD. They sag and are different sized. I also have back neck and shoulder pain. I have some breast cancer history in my family. I would like at least 1/2 removed or removed entirely. What do you think?
Thank you for your question. How much one can remove will depend on your anatomy. There are anatomical limitations to how much we can safely remove. Those limitations have to be considered when deciding if a breast reduction is right for you. Most all of the time we can remove enough to make a difference.
