In brief: Many

An “ideal” patient for breast reduction surgery is one who presents with relatively large breasts in proportion to the remainder of her torso.
These patients often present with neck, back, shoulder discomfort, bra strap grooving, postural changes, and occasionally with rashes/infections. This operation tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.

In brief: Your feeling ienough

If you are uncomfortable with the breasts being too big, it's enough to ask for reduction.
Symptoms usually include upper back tension or pain, bra strap grooving, rash under the breast and of course visually breasts are too large.
