When is the Best Time for a Breast Reduction?

Many women are dissatisfied with having disproportionally large breasts. From spending more money on clothes, especially on bras, to experiencing physical stress daily, women are turning to breast reductions to alleviate the physical, emotional, and financial burden.


A breast reduction is a popular procedure for patients whose lives are impacted by their breasts, including pain in the back, neck, and shoulder regions and general discomfort. This treatment reduces and reshapes the breasts by removing excess fat from them to best suit the patient’s wants and body aesthetic.


As a result of having a breast reduction, many women note an improvement in their quality of life. Noted benefits of having a breast reduction include:

  • Increased range of motion
  • Greater flexibility with clothing options
  • Easier ability to exercise comfortably
  • Reduced pain in the back, neck, and shoulders
  • Less risk of developing rashes under your breasts


The general recovery period following a breast reduction is several weeks. You will need to limit the physical activities you engage in during this period and schedule time off work and your regular routine.


The ideal breast reduction candidate is someone who is:

  • Physically healthy
  • A nonsmoker
  • Experiencing pain in their back, neck, and shoulders
  • Plagued with rashes under or around the breasts
  • Doing it for themself
  • And has realistic expectations
