I weight 189 and want to go from J Cup to a D or DD. When I have the surgery will it make a big difference in my weight?

Weight loss with breast reduction
Thank you for your question.Typically significant weight loss is not seen by excision of the breast tissue itself but by being more comfortable to be more active with smaller breasts. For an average breast reduction of 700-800 grams per side this equates to about 3.5 lbs of weight loss from the excision of breast tissue. There are of course exceptions where 10+ lbs of breast tissue is removed but this is not typical.One must be careful not to lose too much weight after breast reduction as the breasts can decrease in size unpredictably and lead to dissatisfaction. Thus it is best to achieve your desired weight if possible prior to having surgery.Best Dr. L
