Am I a good candidate for a breast reduction?
You are indeed a candidate for breast reduction and depending on how small you want to be, you might qualify for insurance reimbursement. You need to be carefully evaluated in the office. The scars are around the areola and vertically to the fold and possibly in the fold under the breast. The scarless option means liposuction only with droopiness and minimal reduction. This is not a good option in my opinion.
You are a great candidate for breast reduction surgery. It is specifically for women who are limited by the large size of their breasts and would be healthier with smaller ones. If you have a reduction and then lose additional weight, your breasts may droop some from the initial result, but at 22 I suspect your skin is elastic enough for this not to be a problem. At 22 I would also suspect that your breasts are very dense and glandular - making a liposuction reduction difficult (sorry to disagree Dr. Baxt). Find a Board Certified Surgeon who you trust and can talk to and learn more! Best of luck!
