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 ›

So far I have had a consultation with several plastic surgeons. My favorite by far is Dr. Christine Nygaard in Bellevue, WA. My sister referred me to her having had breast augmentation and lipo performed by Dr. Nygaard some years back with excellent results. I must say I am extremely impressed... READ MORE

I've always wanted a reduction, but I would never have been able to justify the expense, and I didn't think my health insurance would pay for it. I'm a 34H, and over the years, I had increasing problems with pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. Driving long distances and working at the... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I was so excited when I found out that I could get this surgery covered by my medical assistance and at 100% covered. So this was even more motivation for me to get the surgery. I had been to my pc twice got approval and was scheduled within a month. Surgery was done 4/28/15! I am... READ MORE

I have not been satisfied with my breasts because they were really different in size. I think I was wearing a C cup in grade 5! Losing weight doesn't help, have a terrible back, and I was plain sick and tired of that bigger breast not staying inside my bra when I bent over or exercised. Once I... READ MORE

Hello, everyone. I am scheduled for surgery next week (August 20th, 2015). I am nervous and so, so, excited. Like many of you I have had large breasts for a long time. I started growing when I was 8 years old and was a double D by the time I was 10. They have always been a sore subject for me. I... READ MORE

Wanted to do this for a while, nervous about size, shape and recovery. I want to go from a 36G to a 36D or DD. I DO NOT want to end up to small, it won't fit my body type. Kaiser approved immediately. Doctor is proposing 640 on one side and about 550 on the other. :) more to come...... READ MORE

I got approved the same day for my surgery and was scheduled to have it the next week but I got scared and moved the date to give me more time to think about it. I should have done this years ago. I was a 40DDD and I should end up around a C. I love the results so far. Today makes 2 weeks and my... READ MORE

Big boobs got bigger with all the stress i am going through in med school. I hate how people would look at me when i am out. I wish i could put a dress without looking provocative. Not sure if i am doing it for myself or for the image i am showing to the ones around me. Pretty stressed. Need... READ MORE

Well, my whole life I have been the girl with big boobs. I developed way before other girls and even remember wearing a training bra in elementary school. Well, I have finally had enough of the back pain, the shoulder indents, and the stares I get from people walking down the street. I have... READ MORE

I am having my reduction on the 25th of August. Have already had my Pre-Op. Getting a little nervous now and excited! I am a 34H and am hoping to make it to a 34C. Dr says my surgery will be 3 to 3 1/2 hrs long. Can't wait for this to happen! The days can't pass fast enough. Have wanted this... READ MORE

I have PCOS, and after high school, the increased hormones grew my boobs three cup sizes in three years. I was a B in high school, and had no issue with them. No I am an F and I have back pain and neck pain all the time. I can't exercise without my back fatiguing right away. I live on meds and... READ MORE

Like most of the women on this site getting reductions, I have always been large breasted. As a younger girl and woman they really stood out because I was much thinner. I had nicknames in school and was always referred to as the "one with big boobs". It was horrible. I constantly could not find... READ MORE

Back-story: Where to begin? Started this journey at age 7 when my parents took me to the doctor to ask if there was anything they could do to make sure I grew breasts.... I grew up hearing (from my Dad) that my mother's were too small and they wanted better for me.... am I the only one who sees... READ MORE
