Can my breasts change size after breast reduction?

Posted on May 25, 2011 Breast Reduction

If a patient is younger and has not achieved complete breast size, it is possible that the breasts could get larger after a breast reduction. This would only affect patients that get the procedure in the teen age years. Otherwise the only way for breasts to get either larger or smaller after a reduction would be from large fluctuations in weight, as the breast is composed of a large amount of fatty tissue, more in some patients than others.
