Thank you for your question! Timing for breast reduction surgery is really up to the patient, before or after menopause. Timing is really not an issue, but certainly, surgical outcomes will be optimized by an ideal BMI (body mass index). A board certified plastic surgeon should be consulted during the planning phase, so that if there is a weight loss issue, this can be addressed with help. Best wishes to you!
Timing for Breast Reduction
Patients decide the timing for their breast reductions for a variety of reasons, some prefer to wait until they have reached a goal weight, sometimes the patient's schedule determines the timing. There is no set answer as to whether doing it before menopause or waiting until after is better, it all depends on your situation. Hope this helps!
