3 weeks post implant revision/mastopexy. Will they settle down to B/C-cup? Will areolas look better? (Photo)

Size change after mastopexy plus implant exchange.
The above calculation totally removes the "swelling" component of "previous size to present size," and 100cc is significantly short of a 3 cup size decrease. So unless a significant amount of tissue was removed, once swelling is resolved and healing complete, you may still be bigger than you desire.
Or . . . your bra sizing is off. Cup sizes differ so much by manufacturer, trying to estimate breast sizes by bra cup sizes is often fraught with inconsistency. Better to show photos of desired size and leave the rest to your surgeon, who should have his or her own personal guidelines as to what amount of tissue removal will leave a certain amount of breast volume.
On a good note, being (still) too large is better than being too small, since more tissue can always be removed, or even implants can be removed and your own breast tissue remaining may be "enough," at least until you lose weight. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
