Am I a good candidate for a breast reduction?

I'm 29 years old and I'm a 46DD, also about 170 lbs. The majority of that weight comes from my breasts. It may not sound large but they are extremely heavy and have been this size since I was 13 years old. I stand all day at work and have to take Motrin for excruciating back and shoulder pain. In high school I had to quit the track team because they were so heavy. I am an avid runner so I just want to be able to keep up with my body comfortably. Please help.

Yes, you sound like a good candidate for a Breast Reduction. First, check with your insurance carrier to determine if Breast Reductions are a covered service and what qualifications they require you to meet to qualify for the procedure. If you do not have insurance most ASAPS Members offer package deals for surgery. Consider seeking out a member of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in Breast Surgery.
