Q:

I am a size 36DD and would like to have a slight breast reduction. Should I also have implants in order for my breasts to continue to have a fullness look?

A:

There is not a general answer to the question. The appropriate recommendation depends upon the ratio of excess skin to breast tissue volume. It also depends upon whether the patient's goal is primarily size reduction, or mainly reshaping.  If size reduction is the main goal, an implant is not usually placed, since the improvement in shape would be offset by adding back volume.  If reshaping is the main goal, an implant to add to upper breast contour could be beneficial.
