What cup size will I be after a breast reduction?

I am 5'7" weighting 282 lbs and I am a 36 H. I just want to know what bra size I might wear after a breast reduction.

It is impossible to tell you exactly what bra cup size you will be after breast reduction surgery. First of all, all bras fit different, and there is no standardization of bra sizes among bra manufacturers. In addition, many large breasted women fit their larger breasts into smaller bra sizes which may offer more support and concealment of their breasts. If you are broad and wide, you will still fit into large bra sizes as your chest circumference and breast width do not change after breast reduction. Also, we must preserve a certain amount of tissue during surgery so that the overlying breast skin and nipple heal properly with enough blood supply. Breast reduction surgery has a very high satisfaction rate; results are dramatic and you will be smaller. You cannot judge the success of the operation on your final bra cup size.

These are questions best addressed by your breast surgeon. Most patients like to think of being proportional to height & weight or smaller than their height & weight.

Your cup size after breast reduction depends on how much breast tissue it to be removed. This is a discussion between you and your plastic surgeon. This is a joint decision but your goals and satisfaction is most important. Realistic expectations are important as well. Good luck.
