Q:

I have one breast much larger than the other. I want to have breast reduction to even out their size. Before surgery, how does a surgeon determine how much to remove? Do they weigh each breast before surgery to ensure the right amount of fat is removed or is it decided visually?

A:

During the physical exam, the surgeon estimates how much extra breast tissue there is. During surgery, as the tissue is removed, the surgeon will compare the two breasts to get the size match as close as possible.
