I suffer from horriable neck and upper back pain and unsightly rashes that occurr under them. Please can a reduction make them closer to the same size I am tired of special ordering bras. I am 5'3" and 294 lbs.

Breast Reduction to Improve Breast Symmetry?
Thank you for the question.
Yes, it sounds like breast reduction surgery may be very helpful in improving the symmetry of your breasts. You will be best off (for many reasons) having this operation when you have achieved a long-term stable weight.
When the time is right, seek consultation with board certified plastic surgeons. Ask to see lots of examples their work.
Breast Reductions for Asymmetry
Breast reductions are performed all the time for volume and shape asymmetries. With proper documentation, insurance companies usually cover some or all of the costs for surgery. It's best to undergo an evaluation by a plastic surgeon to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
Thank you for your question and best of luck!
