Complications with pregnancy after a breast reduction

Just like my grandmother, I have very large breasts. Unfortunately, also like my grandmother I suffered from neck and back pain due to my large breasts. I'm considering having a breast reduction but but my husband and I are considering having a child. Should I have a breast reduction before or after my child? If I choose to have a breast reduction before becoming pregnant, could my breast augmentation cause complications with my pregnancy?

If you can handle the back and neck pain, I would suggest waiting

during pregnancy, your breasts will enlarge and "stretch" skin. Your best cosmetic outcome would be to wait

best of luck
