How small can I reduce my breasts?

Q:

I have size 38D breasts at the moment. I want to specify I'm a bit of a masculine woman and I wanted to surgically flatten my breasts to make a flat chest but I wanted to know if a doctor can or would do it.

A:

You are talking about 2 different procedures.  A breast reduction will reduce the size of your breast leaving a normal appearing, though smaller, breast.  One can make the new breast almost any size, though it is much easier to make you a B or C cup.  To totally make you "flat chested," is a mastectomy.  This is done frequently for males with breast development.  It could, theoretically, be done for you.  However, I, and most other plastic surgeons I know, would require a psychological evaluation before scheduling this procedure.
