Thank you for your question. In my practice, I do not perform a breast reduction on seriously ill patients, smokers and those with a BMI over 35. As with any concerning medical condition, a medical clearance would be required. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
Breast reduction is not performed on seriously ill patients. In general, if one is healthy and has medical clearance from their doctor, then they can likely undergo a breast reduction if indicated.
A high cholesterol is not a contraindication to breast reduction. Not certain what your other health issues are but if you are otherwise stable there's no problem undergoing is operation.
Thank you for the question. Breast reduction surgery is considered elective breast surgery and should not be performed on patients with "undiagnosed health problems" or who are "seriously ill". Based on your description, I think you will benefit from medical workup and treatment of any concerns prior to seeking consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. Obtaining "medical clearance" from your family practitioner or internist will be helpful to everyone involved. Best wishes as you work towards your goals.
