Breast reduction while pregnant

Friday, August 24, 2007
While pregnant, it is advisable to avoid all elective procedures, including breast reduction.

Question:
Is it safe to have a breast reduction while being pregnant?

Answer:

While pregnant, it is advisable to avoid all elective procedures, including breast reduction. There is no proven risk of a surgical procedure to the baby, but there are always risks with surgery such as bleeding, and if this was extensive enough to lower your blood pressure, that could be bad for the baby. The safest option is to wait until the baby is born.
