Do I need to lose 50 pounds before a breast reduction?

Q:

My weight is 250 and I need a breast reduction. My breast cup is 46DD and my Primary Care Physician recommends I lose 50 pounds.

A:

 Carla, 

 You failed to list your height so, I could determine your BMI but, your primary Care Physician is most likely correct. Patients who lose weight before this surgery often fair better. Best,
