I Am a 32G/H, What Size Would I Be if 500 Grams Was Taken? (photo)

I am 24 years old, mother of two kids, done breast feeding and done having children. I have struggled with large breasts my entire life since puberty. I am 140lbs, 5'8 with 32G/H's for breast. I have gone to the chiropractor and have documentation, all I need to do is jump through the "hoops" of my insurance company. I need to know what size I would be if they require the 500 grams (that you all say they might require) to be taken out of each breast. Thank you.

You either do not understand the requirements of your health insurance company or your surgeon did not explain to your understanding. It is a minim of 500 grams per side that needs to be removed for coverage. In your case if you are a size H than ONLY the removal of 500 gms per side would reduction you a very small amount maybe to an F size. Pleaase see your surgeon in person to discuss.

Size after breast reduction

If you are a G/H cup, 500 grams will not make you too small and probably would leave you with a D cup. Anything less will be insufficient. In your age group, I recommend aiming for a C cup so that subsequent weight gain will not leave you with symptomatic problems of neck, shoulder and back pain.

Cup size after 500 gm removal


It is difficult to predict what your exact cup size would be or whether in fact you will have a decent size breast remaining without an exam.  Cup size is hard to predict, because each bra manufacturer creates different bra cups differently.

500 grams for breast reduction


    Some insurance companies require 350 g, some 500 g, some based upon weight and height.  The density of your breast tissue is a factor in how much the specimen weighs.  Also, cup size is so inexact for this.  In general, at a 32 G, you should be able to get at least 500 g from each breast and still be a D.
