So how do you know if you’re a good candidate? NYC Plastic Surgeon and RealSelf Contributor, Dr. Lara Devgan told us, “You are a good candidate for breast reduction if you feel that your breasts are too large or too heavy for your frame. Patients often complain of breast pain, back pain, rashes under the breasts, and difficulty with normal activities like exercise and sports.”

Usually, one surgery is all that is required to get the breasts to your desired size. “The degree of reduction will depend on your goals as well as your unique anatomic characteristics. Typically, patients can reduce their breast size by 1-3 cup sizes or more,” Dr. Devgan says.
