Q: Due to the size of my breasts (40g) I sweat a lot under my breasts, because of this they have become very painful from the soreness. They have begun to blister and the sweat glands have begun to block and swell. I would love to have my breasts reduced but have heard many stories of the operation going wrong.

A: Breast reduction surgery has been performed safely with excellent results for decades. In fact, it is generally acknowledged that breast reduction patients are the happiest patients in plastic surgery!! I think breast reduction patients are so satisfied as not only do they look better, but they feel so much better with the instant relief of the constant neck, shoulder and back pain from the gravitational pull of the breasts on the chest wall. It is always important to find a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who makes breast reduction surgery a focus of their practice. A surgeon who has performed many breast reductions will be able to create lovely breasts with minimal post-operative complications.
