Thank you for your question.
Most of my patients undergoing breast reduction surgery wish to achieve a enough of a reduction to help with their symptoms while remaining proportionate with the remainder of their torso.
It is important to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon. In my practice I find the use of goal pictures helpful during this communication process. I encourage patients not to base their communication about goals or their satisfaction of the outcome of surgery based on cup size.
Best wishes; breast reduction surgery is one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.
