Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This is a mature woman who came to me complaining that her breasts had gotten larger as she got older, and she was now at the point that they were "annoying" her. She is an avid athlete and despite being 143 pounds and 5'3", she found that her breasts were simply too large for her. During her breast reduction operation in New York, I removed more than 500 grams of tissue from each side and tried to give her the shape that I thought she was asking for.
Her reduction was rather uneventful, but she had a prolonged recovery in terms of her comfort level. It seemed to take her a few months to be completely back to normal and without any soreness or swelling.

577 grams from the left breast

Note: Dr. Sterry does not remove the nipple for this operation.
Major soreness lasted about 2 weeks, but she told me that she didn't feel "right" for several months postop.
