This lady chose to undergo a breast reduction to decrease her symptoms of neck pain, shoulder pain and discomfort of the excess weight. Breast reduction can not only improve these symptoms but can also help to improve the aesthetic shape. This lady has healed well at 6 weeks and the scars will continue to improve. This lady was at university and has not thought about starting her family. It is important to consider the timing of this operation and the pros and cons. The sensation and the chances of breast feeding can be affected by this surgery although certain techniques can be employed to decrease the chance of sensory loss and damage to the ductal system.

In this scenario, the main issue was related to the functional issues associated with excess weight and breast implants and fat transfer were not a priority.
