    I’m thinking about getting a breast reduction myself. The thought of having scars is the only thing deterring me from wanting to I am a black woman and I know that can often make scarring a bit trickier when healing. I guess my question is would the reduction still be worth it even if your scars never went away?

      I just had the surgery and I am post op day 3. Doing great so far. I wanted to chime in on your question. For me, age 49, I had a scare with a mammogram and with covid and hearing the term non essential a billion times, I said you know whats not essential and I booked the appt for a consultation. Being black you have a higher risk of developing keloid scars, however with your darker skin, it may not be as obvious. Make a list of pros and cons and see which side wins. Best to you on your journey.
