London cosmetic breast specialist, Mr Kelvin Ramsey writes an article for Top Doctors, entitled ‘Am I eligible for breast reduction surgery?’.
Plastic surgeon Mr Ramsey covers the factors that he takes into account when assessing breast reduction patients and what you should know before you make the decision.
“Any woman who has issues with the size of her breasts can be eligible for breast reduction surgery. If the size of their breasts is affecting their everyday life, then reduction surgery may be an option.”
He then discusses the timing of the breast reduction surgery, particularly in relation to whether you should lose weight prior to the operation. “If a patient is planning to lose weight,” Mr Ramsey explains, “it’s recommended that they get to their ideal weight before the surgery. This is because if a patient loses weight after a breast reduction, it will cause the breasts to droop more quickly.”
