URGENTLY Need Breast Reduction Surgery, Can't Afford Procedure, Can Anyone Help?

I am a 33 year old woman from South Africa. When I was 14 I was already a size 34DD, and now I am a size 40H. I am in pain all the time, and even though I have lost weight, my breasts don't get smaller. I cannot afford the surgery, and I am not getting any joy from surgeons in my country. I AM DESPERATE!! The pain in my back, neck and shoulders are excrutiating, and I cry myself to sleep most nights, as it is even uncomfortable to sleep because my breasts are always in the way.

Need Help with Breast Reduction Surgery…


I'm sorry to hear about the distress you are experiencing secondary to disproportionately large breasts. Although it probably will not be easy, I think your best bet is to reach out to all well trained/experienced board-certified plastic surgeons in your area.  Having surgery outside of your area is probably not a good idea for many reasons.

Hopefully, you will find a plastic surgeon who will be able to help you;  many plastic surgeons will find time to do some amount of “charity” work…

Best wishes.
