Breast reduction

I’m 5 .00 feet 129 pounds 40 years old.

32 DDD

If the doctor removes 445 grams from my right breast and 473 grams from the left breast,.

How many cups I’m going down?


Thank you for sharing your question! The volume removed from a patient’s breasts during a breast reduction procedure is difficult to correlate to a cup size. For example, a shorter and more petite patient receiving a breast reduction that removed around 200-300 g from each breast would have a more noticeable reduction in cup size than a patient who is larger and heavier in weight since the heavier patient may have more body fat, a wider back, and a different distribution of fat in the breasts giving the breasts a different appearance or contour. I suggest making an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the procedure in greater detail.
