Breast Reduction Before And After Photos From G To C Cup

View before and after photos from G to C cup breast reduction patients who have been treated by various plastic surgeons.

Realistic expectations are important for a breast reduction

In order for you to go from a G cup to a C, you will most likely need a free nipple graft and removal of a very large amount of breast tissue. It’s difficult to tell you exactly how much tissue needs to be removed without seeing you, but it will most likely be more than 700 grams.

If you undergo a free nipple graft, the sensation to the nipple may be decreased significantly and your ability to breast feed will be removed. Make sure you go over all of these issues with your plastic surgeon before surgery. (Jeffrey E. Schreiber, MD, FACS, Baltimore Plastic Surgeon)

Plastic surgeons prefer not to communicate with bra cup sizes because they are notoriously inaccurate and vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. (Some prefer to inflate (no pun intended) their cup sizes to boost their clients’ egos so that a B in others is a C with this well known manufacturer…)

Going from a G to a C is a VERY large reduction which can be as little as 700 grams or so PER side to much more than that. Most insurance companies would pay for this procedure.

But no one could give you the exact number off grams that would need to be removed. There is no magic answer as to how much tissue you need to have resected. It all depends on the anatomy of your breasts, etc. For some women, it may be 600g, while others, it may be 1500g.

The problem with cup size is that it is very subjective, so that you never know what a G cup is. Some people wear a G cup, but actually are a DD and vice-versa. Until you are examined, it is hard to know how much will be resected, but you can make that sort of jump – G to C, as long as it is safe for both the remaining breast tissue/nipple areola complex.
