how long did you wait in between? is it true you can only have it done 3 times (something about scare tissue?)
i'm 26 now how long does it take for hormones to settle if thats the cause, or do they ever?
Are you getting it re-done in the same hospital?
How unlucky are we? there's no getting rid of the wee (haha) buggers!

I have had a few patients over many years in practice who have enlarged after a previous reduction.  I suspect the cause is hormone related.  A few were never reduced to their desired smaller size.

I have the same problem.  I had 2 reductions on my left breast and 3 on my right and am now back to where I was prior to the first surgery.  I too haven't put on any weight.  My breasts are now much denser than what they were and I now have to breast MRIs as mamograms are unreadable.  I see my PS in about 1 month for a 1 year follow up and am considering complete mastectomy.  

I too am intersted in any feedback as to what could be causing this and any possible solutions.
