Second Breast Reduction because of neck and shoulder pain

I had a breast reduction over 20 years ago but they have returned and bigger. I gained a little weight over the years but I'm contemplating having another one. They are very large 38 DDD/F and I am experiencing the same issue with neck and shoulder pain.

A second breast reduction would likely be a good treatment option for you.  Your surgeon will need to take note of what was done previously, as the blood supply patterns will likely have changed as a result of your first breast reduction.  It is important that you consult with an experienced plastic surgeon who does many breast reduction procedures.

Yes, a second breast reduction is completely reasonable. I would recommend you getting the operative reports from the first surgery to help identify what blood supply remains to the nipple. Good luck!
