Breast reduction

I did my breast reduction a week now. My best size was 34HH. Yes I have a small body naturally. My bread size appear smaller than I wanted. During the consultation I said I wanted about DDD. I'm reading the surgeons' responses and I'm terrified. I feel like I lost all of my beauty. I do not like small breasts. You said to wait 6 months to see if I like my new breast. I'll do that but I'm scared.

Bra size is not accurate. The bra size differ from one manufacturer to another and even from one bra style to another.

The sudden change in breast size after breast surgery may patients some anxiety regarding the actual size and shape the patient has in mind. Wait 6months to a year then decide on the new body image. If patients still think the size is small, can always have surgery to get the desired size.

Thank you for your question. Feeling terrified is not as uncommon as you think after a breast reduction. Bra size unfortunately varies by bra manufacturer. I would wait approximately 6 months until you get re-measured for a bra.

I agree with the other comments in that bra size can vary widely. In 6 months when your size has stabilized, if you are still unhappy with the size, there are a couple of options you can consider: fat transfer to the breasts or an implant. Good luck!
