Do prior health factors weigh in for breast reductions?


I have CHF and I know going under anesthesia can be risky. But will that stop me from having breast reduction surgery?




 Thanks for the question. It would be very advisable for you to seek out pre operative Cardio-Pulmonary Clearance from your Cardiologist for a General Anesthetic. They can assist you in determining if your CHF is a contraindication to your desired Breast Reduction Surgery. Best,
