Will breast tissue grow back post breast reduction surgery?

If I end up getting a breast reduction, is it expected that breast tissue will grow back over time? If that’s the case would it be possible that enough tissue would grow back forcing me to get another reduction? I would hope breast reduction is permanent, but what do I know!

Breast reduction surgery is a great procedure to reduce oversized breasts.  Before performing the procedure, plastic surgeons generally want to confirm from the patient that the size of the breasts are relatively stable to prevent the recurrence issue that you are describing.  That said, recurrent breast hypertrophy is possible, albeit rare, and is often the result of weight gain and/or hormonal issues.
