How long will my breast reduction results last?
Your breasts should remain a consistent size, assuming you use a board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon, and you don't have significant weight fluctuations or go through pregnancy. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually cause your breasts to loosen and sag over time, especially if you still have fairly large breasts after your reduction.
Your results will also depend on the type of incisions and technique used (see detailed procedure information). If you get a breast reduction in combination with a breast lift, your results may last longer.
While results are individual to each patient, breast reduction before and after photos can help you assess what a successful mammaplasty result will look like.
What do I need to consider after my breast reduction?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
