I'm 26, 5'4'' and 112 pounds and I was a 32DD, and wanted a reduction. I had surgery 6 days ago; my doctor called it a 'lift,' and said he removed a lot of skin and 100 mgs of tissue. They are still HUGE. I would have traded all these scars, recovery time, and pain, for the small breasts that I've wanted for a decade, but not for nothing! Is it possible that this is just swelling, or is 100 mgs per breast really nothing and did he decide himself that I only needed a lift? After reading about grams, this seems like nothing. I'm devastated. I'm one week post-op and still feel lots of weight there. It it possible he's right and the skin was to blame? I'm about to lose my mind with that fear.
A: 100gm is not a reduction
100gm of tissue removal does not qualify as a reduction but is often the volume of tissue removed to shape a breast with a mastopexy (breast lift). There appears to be a communication gap resulting in disparity with your desired outcome and the intervention objectives. You should discuss this with your surgeon.
