What Size Breasts Qualify For A Reduction

A breast reduction can be a life-changing procedure that brings relief to many patients. It can relieve back pain and create a newfound sense of confidence and comfort. However, many unanswered questions exist, especially what size breasts qualify for a reduction.


Most cosmetic surgeons do not require breast size qualifications for a patient to undergo a breast reduction. If your breasts pose physical and mental challenges, you may be a candidate for the surgery. A breast reduction can alleviate symptoms such as:

  • Poor posture 
  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain 
  • Bras that are constantly too tight 
  • Ill-fitting clothes 
  • Asymmetrical or disproportionate breasts 
  • Issues with sleeping or exercising due to breast size 
  • Drooping breasts 
  • Low confidence because of breasts 


A breast reduction can help fix many issues and bring every patient a sense of relief and comfort. At Northwest Face & Body, incredible cosmetic surgeons can help determine if a breast reduction is suitable for you.
