Breast Size After a Reduction surgery of 500cc?

I'm getting a breast reduction surgery and the doctor is taking 500cc out of each breast. I am currently a 38DD, what will be my new size?


Size after breast reduction

Thanks for the question - As you've heard (read) by many of the other plastic surgeons. It is difficult to predict final breast size after any breast procedure, especially when talking in terms of cup sizes. Part of this is because "cup size" is an inaccurate measurement. Bra manufacturers are all over the map. You may have noticed this yourself. A "C" cup in one manufacturer may be a "D" cup in others. Breast reductions are designed to reduce the weight of your breasts to relieve symptoms (the point of insurance covering the procedure). Discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon. Good luck!
