What Are the Chances That my Breast Will Grown After Surgery?

I am 20yrs old have always had large breasts. I recently had my daughter 7 months ago, and my breasts are just continually growing. I have always considered breast reduction for the fear that I will continue getting larger. As of right now I an 38G and I want to go back down to a DD. My question is if I decide to get the surgery, what are the chances that my breast will once again grow??

Breast growth after reduction

At 20, your breast size sholdl be fairly stable if your weight is stable. If you gain weight after a reduction surgery, the breasts may indeed enlarge.

Recurrent breast growth after breast reduction

Recurrent breast growth after breast reduction will depend on weight gain, hormone status (endogenous or exogenous), pregnancy, nursing, menopause, etc.
