Breast Reduction

My current size is a 30-I, and I would like to get to a D or a DD if possible. My question pertains to how much tissue can safely be taken out?

You can achieve your desires with a reduction with the guarantee being smaller. Achieving a specific cup size is more challenging and tissue removal is generally safe. BUT nipple issues doe arise the farther and farther the nipple has to be elevated but this can be minimized by using specific techniques or even nipple grafts in extreme situations. So ask your surgeon what kind of pedicle is being used and what strategies will be employed to minimize nipple loss.
