Breast reduction


Actually, you are one of the few cases I have seen where you are a good candidate for breast reduction by lipo.  That is because your breasts are not too saggy and your skin looks like it will shrink down pretty well after lipo.

Candidate for Breast Reduction?


It sounds like you would be a good candidate for breast reduction.The best candidates for liposuction breast reduction are younger women with normal skin elasticity, minimal to moderate breast enlargement, and with minimal ptosis or sagging. The breasts should have an adequate amount of fat-to-breast tissue content to achieve a good reduction. See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to determine which procedure would work best for you Good luck!
