Everything You Need to Know About Reducing Cup Size from D to B

Charlotte Breast reduction surgery is the most practical long-term solution to permanently reduce your cup size from a D to a B. Dr. Ditesheim is a board-certified Charlotte, NC, plastic surgeon specializing in breast reduction procedures.

We recommend that anyone who wants to change from a size D to a B consult with Dr. Ditesheim to determine if breast reduction surgery is the best route.

Who Should Consider a Breast Reduction?

D size breasts can be uncomfortable and annoying. Dr. Ditesheim has helped many women with larger chests go from a D cup to a B cup with breast reduction surgery. If your breasts cause physical pain (neck or back), you find it hard to exercise, or if you’re generally unhappy with how your breasts look, a breast reduction might be the answer.

We’ve had women of all ages, shapes, and sizes contact us about breast surgery to reduce their cup size from a D to a B. For example, some women opt for a reduction mammoplasty after losing weight, giving birth, or simply because they don’t like the look of their breasts.

What Happens During Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is typically done under general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep and pain-free. During a breast reduction from a D cup to a B cup, Dr. Ditesheim carefully makes incisions on the breasts to remove excess breast tissue, reshape the breasts, and reposition the nipple to achieve your desired size and shape.

Surgery is performed at our state-of-the-art, on-site surgical suite in Charlotte, North Carolina, accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF).

What About Scarring From a Breast Reduction? 

Dr. Ditesheim specializes in the “short scar technique” to reduce breast size and give a more flattering appearance. This technique incorporates one incision around the areola (nipple area) and a vertical incision down to the breast crease. During the procedure, a “lollipop incision” is blended around the nipple and partially down the breast. This technique minimizes scarring and helps preserve your natural nipple shape.

When Can You See Breast Reduction Results?

Going from a D to a B cup is a significant change, and you’ll notice immediately after surgery that your breasts have decreased in size. However, it can take 6 to 12 months for all residual swelling to dissipate and see the final results of your procedure.

Will I Be a Solid B Cup After Surgery?

It’s important to remember every surgery is unique, and the level of reduction is impacted by several factors, including your natural breast composition, body shape, blood supply to the nipple, and the amount of volume there is to lose. 

Dr. Ditesheim’s ultimate goal is to ensure your breast size complements your body’s contours and proportions. Going from a D to a B cup with a breast reduction is possible. Our entire team is here to help you achieve your body goals so you can look and feel your best.

The Benefits of D to B Breast Reduction
