Should I get BR before weight loss or bear it? For someone with as large breasts as mine, what would be my price range? (Photo)

Weight loss before cosmetic surgery
I understand the difficulty in loosing weight with large breasts. Please understand that being overweight is not only your issue. It becomes our issue when your ability to heal is compromised or you have problems with anesthesia. At your present weight your risk for fat necrosis, wound infection, and deep vein thrombosis are much higher than normal weight patients. You may move forward with breast reduction surgery, but at greater risk of complications. I hope this helps.
Best wishes and kind regards,

Breast Reduction Candidate. Some advices:
After having analyzed all the information provided to us, i can realize that you have very large breasts for your height and weight, and can be responsible for head, back, neck and shoulder pain.
In the future may cause permanent osteo-articular damage in the back and shoulders and skin problems (mainly under the breasts). For for this reasons, certainly you need a breast reduction surgery.

Thank you for the question and picture.
Based on your picture and description you may be an excellent candidate for breast reduction surgery at some point; it tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform. By removing “excess” breast tissue, adipose tissue, and breast skin this operation reduces and lifts the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. By doing so, patients often find improvement in neck, back, and shoulder discomfort and find it easier to form their activities of daily living and exercise.
Timing of the operation will depend on the patient's life circumstances. In general, it is best to do this procedure ( like all other elective body contouring the stages, when patients have reached their long-term stable weights. Losing weight prior to the procedure will improve the safety of the procedure and minimize the need for further surgery ( in the event of weight gain/loss after the breast reduction procedure). Keep in mind, that some of the complications that may occur when patients undergo surgery while overweight, can be very serious.
I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.
