Breast appearance after reduction mammoplasty
The appearance of the breast after reduction mammooplasty depends on the skill of the surgeon and the size of the patient. The closer a patient is to their ideal weight the better and more natural the end result. Quite often I will be asked to make a C cup for a woman who is over 190 pounds and under 5'5". For this large a woman it is impossible to give a beautiful breast. The chest is to wide and there is to much body fat. This same woman at 130 to 150 could achieve a very desirable breast eventhough her ideal weight is 115 pounds.
C-Cup Is a Great Size For Most Women
The C-cup size is most popular because the sense of proportionality, full feminine figure, but still fitting clothing well (without tugging on the buttons).
Explore sizing options with your plastic surgeon to find what size will fit you best.

High satisfaction, less complaints from breast reduction
There is a reason you are considering a breast reduction. Large heavy breasts could cause marked discomfort and difficulty in clothing, etc.
Following surgery, you will be happier as your breast volume will fit the rest of your body. The transition from a DDD to a C is very significant and a D size breast might be more realistic. It would be very helpful to get review pictures from previous reduction procedures performed.
Hope that helps!

With a C cup, you will blend right in.
The body image requires some adjustment after you have been quite large, but big outcome studies show that 98.7% of patients are either Very Glad or Glad that they had a breast reduction.
Predicting outcomes in breast reduction
The outcome of breast reduction has so many factors it is difficult to predict your exact result. There are significant variations when you consider your own traits: weight, current breast size, skin quality, other health issues. Based on the above, your surgeon should be able to recommend best options for surgical techniques to accomplish your breast reduction surgery. There is wide variation in surgical technique and incision patterns. Regardless, all of these things should be discussed with your plastic surgeon and they will be able to educate you about the risks, benefits and expectations that come along with breast reduction surgery.
