Is a Breast Reduction the best option for me since my excessively large breasts are causing me severe back pain?

Q:

I have excessively large breasts and cannot find a bra that fits and supports me.  This is causing me to have a lot of back pain.  Is a breast reduction the best option for me?

A:

A breast reduction is designed for someone with excessively large breasts that cause back pain, especially if you cannot find a bra that fits and supports. There is no other procedure that will solve your problems. Therefore, consult a plastic surgeon and discuss your needs.
