How small can a breast reduction go?

I have a DD chest and am heavily considering breast reduction surgery. How small can it make my chest? I don’t care about them looking proportional to the rest of my body, just as small as possible. Also, are there any more health risks than normal if I were to do this? Thank you!

Procedure: Breast Reduction
Location: Orlando, FL

There are several procedures that can be done for reduction mammoplasty. As for the size you wish, that has to be discussed with a Board Certified Plastic surgeon. Then the procedure and size can be discussed. Surgery is based on patient evaluation , the desired outcome and suitability for surgery.

Thanks for your question.

This is a hard question to answer without an evaluation person. Please meet with a board certified plastic surgeon in order to figure what would be the best procedure for you

An A cup on some patients. Since you are a DD I would recommend no smaller than a B cup. There are not more health benefits to going smaller, but it may not be possible based on your measurements. I suggest you meet in person with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!

Breast reduction surgery can make your breast smaller for sure but for the size you need to consult with your surgeon in person for discussed about the treatment plan.
