Breast Reduction Candidate?

Yes, you may still have a breast reduction if you are a C or D cup.  As always, you will need to weigh the pros/cons of the procedure and consider the potential risks/complications  on the procedure to determine whether to proceed or not.

At this breast cup size,  the procedure may not be covered by health insurances.

Consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will be helpful.

Best wishes.

Breast Reduction for C or D Cup

You certainly can have a breast reduction performed if you wear a C/D cup bra.  I think the rules in Germany are a bit more flexible, but the procedure in the US likely would not be covered by insurance.

Depends on what you want to achieve...

Breast reduction is very effective in reducing the discomfort associated with heavy breasts. A small reduction in a C size breast may not give you symptomatic relief but will achieve a better shape. It is difficult to be more specific without seeing pictures and knowing what the procedure is for, symptom relief or cosmetic improvement. Please have a Board Certified plastic surgeon evaluate thes issues.
