Are my breasts likely to get any smaller after 7 weeks? (photos)

Final size after a breast reduction
There are two factors in evaluating the final size after a breast reduction. The first is swelling. Generally swelling is improved within a few weeks and at least 50% of the swelling is gone by 6 weeks or less. the second factor is shape. The lower incision will stretch over the first 6 months. So, I usually ask patients to wait 6 months before evaluating the final size. If the woman feels that her breasts are still too large at that time, it may be possible to perform a little liposuction to reduce them a bit further with essentially no more scars.
