5'9" 150lbs and 34E breasts. For years I've had back pain and horrible rashes under my breasts. Nothing helps. Would I be a candidate for reduction?

Possibly: Most insurance companies base coverage on the Schnur Nomogram that uses Body Surface Area to calculate grams of tissue to be removed. You are 1.82 sq M BSA, so to qualify you would need to have 441 or more grams removed from each breast. Only a board-certified Plastic Surgeon can assess whether or not this would provide an acceptable result. Suggest you schedule a consult. Thanks. ...Read more

I have underArm bruises with on and off rashes, size 36K breasts and try to wear fitting bras and most times I do not wear a bra at home, causes?

Allergy?: Perhaps the rashes are due to an allergy? I would try a different deodorant.
Liquid washing products and clothes drying additives can also be a source of allergic sources.
The bruises might be due to small size bra. Google bra fitting and they tell you how to measure and calculate fit. If bra pinches it could possibly bruise the skin.
Hope these ideas help. ...Read more
