Breast Reduction and Breast Size Afterwards?

Thank you for the question and pictures.

Congratulations on your decision to proceed with breast reduction surgery. It is one of the most patient pleasing operations we performed.

I think your stated goals are perfectly reasonable. Many patients have the same goals: reduce the breasts enough to achieve some symptom relief while maintaining enough breast tissue to remain “proportionate".

Before undergoing the breast reduction procedure it is very important to communicate your size goals with your surgeon.  In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or “C cup” or "fake looking" means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.‚Ä®Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup  size may also be inaccurate.

Best wishes.

Breast reduction surgery

Large breasts can restrict your lifestyle and cause a variety of medical problems. Even drastic weight loss won't result in more than negligible shrinkage. Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue and reshapes the contour of the breasts so that they are smaller and perkier. I commonly use a minimal incision technique (Le Jour), eliminating the need for large scars while providing a pleasing breast contour and shape that is proportionate to the patients body.

Your surgeon knows exactly how much tissue he or she is taking out, because it is weighed after removal. And breast reduction comes with an added bonus: the extracted breast tissue is always sent to the lab and examined by a pathologist for signs of cysts or cancer. Having smaller breasts can take years off your appearance!

Breasts too big!

This is a complaint I hear all the time, from young women as well as older ones.  The treatment is called a breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty.  There are many different techniques available and some of the cost may be covered by your insurance.  My advice would be to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who can review your options and go over the risks and complications associated with breast reduction surgery.  Good luck.

A breast reduction is an operation that makes women with large breast extremely happy

A well done breast reduction should make your breast match your body size and frame. Not only will your breast be smaller but should be much perkier and a better rounded shape. The biggest complaint I hear from patients after a reduction mamoplasty, "I wish I had done this sooner." Ask your surgeon to show you some photos of their results. If your breast are too big for your body the a breast reduction is just the ticket.

Breast reduction surgery makes overly large breasts more proportionate to a petit body

Breast reduction surgery is a fabulous way to make uncomfortably large breasts smaller and nicely shaped. There are things to consider if you are young and expect to have children. Pregnancy and nursing will again change the size and shape of your breasts. All of the options should be discussed during your consultation with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
