Have my breasts been reduced enough? 300 grams were removed from each side. (Photo)

Enough was removed
Is 300g per side "enough" of a breast reduction?
But that proportion doesn't have to satisfy my eye or wishes; it's your goal that is either being met . . . or not.
Bra manufacturers size their bras in different ways, so I would first question whose bras fit your pre-operative appearance with 34 FF? But I've always said that bras either fit or don't fit, and if they fit well and look nice, then whatever letters are on the label are OK by me--just don't take those letters as any sort of "absolute" size determination, any more than you should take the 36D you are wearing now as indicative of size.
I think you have definitely achieved a "noticeable reduction." But if that's not small enough for your goals, and not achievable with weight loss, then more can be removed. BTW, that's much easier that "too small" and now what do you do? (Implants)
For now, relax and be thankful for your surgeon's good work. Honest! I think you'll be just fine when all is said and done and your healing is much further down the line. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen

This is because several measurements—not to mention breast characteristics such as density—are needed to determine how much and where to remove breast tissue to meet your goals. Without knowing your existing breast shape, dimensions, and the density of your breast tissue, it would be difficult to make this determination. For example, the same volume of breast tissue will weigh different amounts (measured in ounces or grams) in different people depending on its density. The existing base width of your breast and what you will ultimately want to look like will determine, in many cases, the maximal volume and weight that will need to be removed for the best result.

I hope this helps in your understanding of final breast size.
