How Many Sizes Can You Go Down With Breast Reduction?

For many women, overly-large breasts can cause a multitude of physical issues, including neck and back pain, breathing problems, nerve pain, irritation and rashes beneath the breasts, and posture issues. Excessively large breasts can also restrict a woman’s individual lifestyle and make it difficult to exercise comfortably. Finding clothing that fits properly can also be a challenge, and many women are self-conscious or even embarrassed about their large breasts.

Breast reduction surgery can offer significant relief to these common problems. Medically referred to as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction surgery can reduce the size of your breasts and improve the overall proportions of your physique.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Raymond Jean has helped many women improve their figures, confidence, and quality of life through breast surgery. He will customize your procedure to meet your unique goals. When discussing desired outcomes of breast reduction surgery, women often ask how much of a reduction is possible. Simply put, the answer is: it depends.

How Many Sizes Down Can You Go With Breast Reduction?

The degree to which breasts can be reduced with reduction mammoplasty depends on a number of factors, such as the volume of the breasts before treatment, their makeup, the type of incision being made, and the unique goals of the patient. Typically, most women drop one or two cup sizes with breast reduction surgery. This is usually sufficient to alleviate the many problems associated with overly-large breasts, while still maintaining an attractive and proportionate body shape.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Jean, He will assess your physical condition, review your medical history, and determine your candidacy for breast reduction surgery. Together, you will develop a customized treatment plan that reflects your individual goals and desired outcome.
