WORTH IT RATING 3,135 reviews over 24 months
A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, which usually results in the nipple and areola being shifted to a higher position. The areola might also be reduced if it had been stretched out due to the size of the breast. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

Hey everyone. I am 26 years old, 5'2", 150lbs, and a large 32J cup. My breasts haven't stopped growing since I was 9. When I was in 7th grade I was a C-cup, borrowing my mother's bras. When I was a freshman in highschool, I was a D cup. By the time I graduated high school in 2007, I was an F... READ MORE

So I can't believe I have finally came to this decision. It has taken me a long time to be ready. My husband and I have talked about this for at least a few years. But the journey took me to this time in my life. Menopause has kicked my butt. I started 2 years ago, when I was 49. That was hard... READ MORE

Once I turned 11 my boobs grew and didn't stop. I went from nothing to a D cup in no time. Because of the teasing of certain family members I have always felt a deep shame and embarrassment over my large boobs. I have always done things to try and diminish them, to no avail. They are the thing... READ MORE

(Melb Australia) I was a D cup by the time I was 18 even though I was slim. My well endowed chest was then a source of embarrassment to me for the rest of my adult life. I continued to get even bigger after having 2 kids, 5 years apart. More recently they were so big and daggy and heavy I felt... READ MORE

Now's the time, and the serious journey has begun! I have been desperately in need of a breast reduction for the past 10 years.

Hello everyone, I've been on this site for a few weeks now, and decided to finally share a little bit about myself. Like most of you, my breasts began to grow when I was young, in 5th grade.

Had my consultation about two weeks ago after a referral from my PCM. I was told that I qualify and they took pictures and sent me on my way. However, I'm starting to feel pretty anxious since I haven't received a call back. I'm going through tricare and it seems that every story I've read on... READ MORE

I used to love my large breasts, but after having my children, they lost their shape. They were handing so low and felt so heavy they were causing me back pain. I was stuffing them into bras and it seemed like nothing fit well. Perhaps the worst part was that I was having difficulty working... READ MORE
