It sounds like you are best suited to have a breast reduction which can also lift the breasts at the same time.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. You may be a candidate for a breast reduction to improve your symptoms and breasts' aesthetic appearance. I would recommend seeking out consultations in your area to discuss.

Hello and thank you for your question. A breast reduction includes making the breasts smaller by removing breast tissue as well as lifting and reshaping the breast. A breast lift reshapes and lifts the breast but removes very little tissue (usually just skin). It sounds like you are a candidate for a reduction. I recommend that you seek consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Additionally, your primary care physician may be able to refer you if the reduction is large enough to be covered by insurance. Good luck!

Hello. Thanks for your question. Without a personal or online evaluation is difficult to give you a proper surgical plan. But from what you said you may be a good candidate for a Breast Lift and Reduction, with or without implants (not to give you more volume but to achieve a better shape an avoid them to fall again).

Hello and thank you for the question.

You may be a candidate for a breast reduction procedure. As others has stated, a breast reduction procedure can lift and shape the breasts. I would recommend finding a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to schedule a consultation appointment with. They should be able to answer all of your questions. Best of luck.
