By your description, sounds like you need a breast reduction. The criteria are based on height/weight, bra cup size, posture, shoulder grooving and side/front views of pictures which demonstrate your problem. Also approval based on amount of tissue to be removed. To ease your discomfort you could begin with Vitamin E 400 iu daily and reduce caffeine intake to max of 1 cup per day.
