Do I need to lose 50 pounds before a breast reduction?

My weight is 250 and I need a breast reduction. My breast cup is 46DD and my Primary Care Physician recommends I lose 50 pounds.

You failed to list your height so I could not determine your BMI, but your primary Care Physician is most likely correct. Patients who lose weight before this surgery often fair better.
