I've always been a ddd cup, My surgeon doesn't want to do a implant just a lift, but can't tell me if i will be a c or d....this would be traumatic for me as I've always been dd or ddd since I was 14. I have no idea what to do, can you please help....Thanks

You should not be to samll after a lumpectomy!
Typically a lumpectomy can be performed on a larger breast without noticable differences. If the breast surgeon feels like there is going to be a deformity then you should be reffered to a Plastic surgeon for review of all options regrading partial breast reconstruction including a reduction and or lift versus other forms of partial breast reconstruction.
