Q:

I am a 37-year-old female and have always had large breasts. My pre-pregnancy size was 38D. Since my pregnancy, my breasts are very saggy and are getting more so as I lose weight. Right now I am a size 38DD. I was wondering whether a breast lift or a breast reduction would be more appropriate in my situation. I have 11 month-old twins at home, so I would like to minimize recovery time if possible.

A:

There are several types of breast lifts or small reductions that would work well for you. During the consultation with your surgeon, a discussion of which technique would work best for you will take place. My personal preference is to use a new minimal scar lift that produces superb results in properly selected patients.
