Question

I am 43, over the past 14 years I have slowly gained 45 pounds. I am a 38 DD to a 38 F. I want to get a breast reduction down to a C cup but I am not sure if I should loose the weight first. I am afraid that if I don’t loose the weight before I get a reduction, when I loose the weight my breast will shrink and sag. Is this possible?

Answer

That would depend on how much of your breast is fat and how much is breast tissue. You need to be evaluated, but losing weight is always healthy.
