This is normally what insurance companies require in order to pay!

In brief: Yes

We usually remove 500 grams from each breast during a breast reduction, which is about two cup sizes.
In some cases more or less can be removed.

In brief: Yes

One cup size per 250 gm removed.
Amount removed may dictate technique removal therefore shape/ location of scar.

In brief: Maybe

It depends in how big you are to start with, and remember bra cup sizes are very variable from bra to bra.

In brief: Yes

However, it all depends on what size breasts you start with.
If your breasts are small to begin with, then no.
