Achieving Specific Cup Size after Breast Reduction?

+1

Congratulations on having undergone the breast reduction procedure; it is one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.

At this point, it is too early to evaluate the end results of surgery. You will find that the breasts will change significantly over the course of the next several months. At this point, patience and time are important.

I am hopeful that you will be please with results of surgery,  and not base your satisfaction with the outcome of surgery on achieving a specific cup size.

Best wishes.
