A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, with 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 produce a smaller, perkier bust, but it can help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

I have been on this site for quite sometime now dreaming about having a Breast Reduction. Well, I have finally taken the first steps! My story is the same as all of you: I've had large breasts since puberty, I am self conscious, terrible back pain, and I desire to feel more confident,... READ MORE

Well... I'm nervous as can be. I just got the approval from my insurance company yesterday as medical necessity. Gasp. I was sure they'd balk and deny. I admit, I cried.... After I sat in shock for 20 minutes reading and rereading until the words actually sunk in. My husband asked what the... READ MORE

So far! Well to start I've had back problems from being top heavy all my life. The past few years my back has gotten considerably worse...I've tried it all and still no comfort! Finally my Dr. Asked in his serious voice is this is something I'd consider & I said yes! So I scheduled my consult .... READ MORE

Hi Ladies! I'm so inspired after reading all of your stories for the past couple of months. I feel that there is no other website available that is so honest and encouraging. My husband thinks I'm crazy to be so obsessed with looking at boobs every night but he just doesn't understand, haha.... READ MORE

I have wanted a BR for years. I finally went for a consult in late August. My insurance company approved me on the first go around. The fact that this was approved right away, made me feel better. I was not being vain, it really is justified! I am looking forward to less neck pain and smaller... READ MORE

Hey guys, I've been lurking for a few weeks! I have been toying with the idea of getting a breast reduction for the last few years. I have always had large breast but they became unmanageable once I had my son in October of 2012. After having a child it seemed like the elasticity went away, not... READ MORE

Well thought now I have plucked up courage will write my review. I am 51,5ft 6 and at present 12stone. My breasts developed at an early age 11and I remember being in bra from junior school. Always felt uncomfortable with them and fed up wearing size 14 skirts and 16 to 18 tops. Men always stare... READ MORE

By age 11 my size passed C. On our first bra shopping trip, my Mom did not believe me when she handed me tiny training bras to try on, and I showed her the 34C I needed instead. I had already grown bigger at 11 than Mom and older sister ever got, so no more hand-me-downs. Junior high was... READ MORE

I wish I had started this journey years ago instead of waiting until I was 42 there are a lot of things I would like to have done for instance getting married in a church in a wedding dress not in reg office in a trouser suit there was no way I would have had the confidence to walk down the...

I have read about a million other reviews on here before making my decision to do this and I am 100% ready. I suppose I should share some things about myself! I am 19 and, like most other people that have gotten this procedure, I developed very early in the breast area. I was in 4th grade I had... READ MORE

Hey hey hey beautiful women!! I've always been heavier chested then most of my peers through my schooling days as I completed basic training into my 20s I stood at a friendly C then D cup. After having a miscarriage then my daughter within 6 months span, they filled all the way up to a DDD and... READ MORE

My history with large breasts go back many years. I started wearing a bra when I was 9 and by the time I was in high school I was a 36 DD. I was into sports and hiking. I bound them when I was playing softball because I was teased that I would give myself a bloody nose when I ran. I have had... READ MORE

I'm an exotic dancer who was just very displeased with my breasts and stomach area, I've always had big breast that sagged pretty bad ... I will admit I should have researched more docs ... Immediately I noticed after surgery I noticed that my breast were uneven. The left is much bigger,he told... READ MORE

I've been thinking about a breast reduction for quite a while now. I've always been busty, but it's never really bothered me. I always have thought "Oh, they're not that big. They're pretty portioned to my body." I saw a few pictures from an event during the summer, and realized they are bigger... READ MORE

I have always had large breasts... but not good ones. They were heavy, and droopy. My areolas were huge, and my nipples always pointed due south. When I fit them into a bra, they would always spill out, even though in theory, I was wearing the "correct" sized bra. I likened my boobs to... READ MORE

My story is like many of the wonderful ladies found here. I've had a large chest my entire adult life and I'm finally doing something about it. I'm 47 years old, married with 2 children -7 and 10. I had my children later so I've had to wait longer to get a BR. Still, I wish I had looked into... READ MORE

I have always been active, but always had heavy breasts no matter how small my body. It didn't bother me until the pain started creeping into my neck back and shoulders. Now it's all I know. I have taken a step back, not being competitive because my back could let me down. 2 years and 3 surgeons... READ MORE

Ready to have smaller boobies!! Insurance has denied due to an exclusion that there is no way around, so my husband and I are paying for it. The surgery is scheduled for September 23, 2014 and my pre-op appointment is on September 3, 2014. Very very nervous about this being the right... READ MORE
