Reader Question – Breast Reduction and Post-op Fullness


I am going to have a breast reduction soon but have always loved my breast fullness. Is there a way that they can be reduced and remain full?

Young women with particularly large breasts retain some of that fullness after breast reduction, but it does vary with the technique and target size. This is something to discuss with your surgeon before surgery and to confirm with some images of patients he or she has previously operated.

Take into account that larger reduction results have more of a tendency to become droopy as well. Gravity has a tendency to win if things are left too large.

This one like many thing in plastic surgery is relative….relative to how
small you go and how exactly it is done.

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD
