Shape of Breasts

Congratulations on deciding to proceed with breast reduction surgery.

This is one of the most patient pleasing operations we do.

Please choose your Plastic Surgeon carefully by evaluating results of previously performed surgery - so that you are comfortable that your plastic surgeon can achieve the shape of breasts that you find appealing.

Visit with well experienced, board certified plastic surgeons and ask to speak with other patients who have undergone the same procedure.

Best wishes.

Breast shape after surgery

Thank you for your question. Breast shape varies significantly between women. Even in the same person the shape and size varies. If you are having a bilateral breast reduction, you need to communicate your expectations to your plastic surgeon before surgery. There are different types of breast reduction surgery. You need to see before and after photos patient who have similar or close breast shape and body frame to you.
