I was about a 36 G/H and had 762 grams removed from my right and 556 grams removed from the left. I am 3 weeks post-op and tried on a 36 DDD bra I wore before surgery and it still fits. I was aiming for a D cup. Will they shrink more? They look great, but still seem very large. I included a picture from before surgery, 2-days post op & 3 weeks post op.

Breast Reduction and Results of Surgery?
Thank you for the question and pictures.
Congratulations on your successful breast reduction surgery; I think your plastic surgeon has done an excellent job for you. I suggest that you wait to evaluate the final result/size of the surgery when you are about 6 months to a year out.
I would also suggest that you do not base your satisfaction with the results of surgery on a specific cup size, given that this is somewhat arbitrary and dependent on who makes the bra.
Hopefully you will enjoy the physical, functional, and psychological benefits of the breast reduction procedure you have undergone.
Post op size
Your surgeon has done an excellent job! You are symmetric and proportionate. It is still much too early to judge the size. You are still in the healing phase and there still is swelling present. Give it some time, at least 6-8 weeks. When you go bra shopping you may want to try 36s and 38s in a variety of cup sizes and styles to see what looks and feels the best. Enjoy your new figure!
