Breast Reduction Revision - Previously had anchor reduction, what are my options?

I'm 2 months post-op and unhappy with my size. Before I was a 32DD/E and am now a full D. I wish to go down to a B or small C (I know cups vary, but this is so that you know around how much I still want taken off). How soon could I have a revision safely and what are my options other than breast liposuction or redoing the surgery entirely with new incisions (under general anesthesia). Is it possible to just reopen part of my incisions (i.e. not cutting around the areola again)?

I am sorry to hear that you are not happy with your size. I hope that you do, however, have good relief of any neck and shoulder pain. Two month post surgery is fairly soon to consider any revisions. The breasts will change in shape and form over the next several months. Revision can then be considered and could involve either liposuction only (which generally does not give one a significant reduction unless there is a good deal of fat in the breast) to completely re-opening the incisions. I would recommend you return to your surgeon, but be patient for your breasts to heal a bit more.

If you want to be a full size smaller you will most likely need a repeat surgery with the same incisions. You could try liposuction if you have a good amount of fat component to your breast but they will sag. You may want to go back to your surgeon to discuss your options. Good Luck.
