What Does a Reduced Breast Look Like?
Breast appearance after reduction mammoplasty
The appearance of the breast after reduction mammooplasty depends on the skill of the surgeon and the size of the patient. The closer a patient is to their ideal weight the better and more natural the end result. Quite often I will be asked to make a C cup for a woman who is over 190 pounds and under 5'5". For this large a woman it is impossible to give a beautiful breast. The chest is to wide and there is to much body fat. This same woman at 130 to 150 could achieve a very desirable breast eventhough her ideal weight is 115 pounds.
C is the most common size I build.
You will look GRAEAT! Most of my patients want to be a C cup. Clothes fit better, you will feel better, you will look better and you will be able to do things thay you pass up on now............. It is the BEST!

High satisfaction, less complaints from breast reduction
There is a reason you are considering a breast reduction. Large heavy breasts could cause marked discomfort and difficulty in clothing, etc.
Following surgery, you will be happier as your breast volume will fit the rest of your body. The transition from a DDD to a C is very significant and a D size breast might be more realistic. It would be very helpful to get review pictures from previous reduction procedures performed.
Hope that helps!

You’ll have higher, firmer C Cups if you include a lift at the same time.
Ending up with a full C cup is a very common goal for women considering breast reduction. If you want a high, firm C cup as well, definitely ask your plastic surgeon about performing a breast lift at the same time as reduction. Many surgeons will perform this as a matter of aesthetics but some others won’t, so it’s good to ask. A breast lift will reshape and lift the breast so you have youthful, perky C cups after surgery. For the best results, be sure to do your homework and find a board certified plastic surgeon who has plenty of experience combining breast reduction with a breast lift.
