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 ›

Hi Everyone! I have been reading this site religiously for about four months, it has really helped me make my decision. I have been considering a breast reduction for about a year but I guess it was not something I ever really thought I could do. People ask me all the time if I have thought... READ MORE

I had big boobs since 6th grade and can't wait to be active without wearing 2 sports bras or dropping 50+ bucks on one and still having my back ache after going on a short run (and then shortly becoming discouraged). The main reason I've decided to (finally) pursue a breast reduction is fear of... READ MORE

About me, and why I need this done:I am 20 years old, 5'5 150lbs. I have an athletic build, and started developing larger breasts in about my senior year in high school. I am currently a 36G, and am looking into being a 36C. I am interested in the surgery because I am in college studying and... READ 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

Hi I am from Nassau Bahamas and I can't wait for the date of my surgery to arrive, August 27th, 2015. It took a month to get a response from insurance but it was worth the wait just to hear : YOU'RE APPROVED! So, 25 more days to go , per-op 36H, I would LOVE to be reduced to 36C. Pre-op... READ MORE

Hello everyone. I feel it is my responsibly to write this review, and help others to make such important decision, even after 55, to go thru an elective surgery, just for mare reason, as to look better. If it was not for this site I don't think I would have done it! So, this is my small... READ MORE

I've had large breast since I was a teen. Started the process before but never followed through. I decided this is it, called Dr. Scheirle and after my appt. I was confident that my insurance would pay. I've been anxiously waiting for approval which came last week. Surgery is in 3 weeks..can't... READ MORE

This is my first post after reading all other reviews from last year. Ready to do my own review now. A week before my surgery, just had pre op. These are some of my thoughts and concerns: Nipple death? So scared because I was a smoker since 16 (smoked between 4-10 cigarettes a day). I've been... READ MORE

My schedule prior to the reduction was so busy, so sorry if this first one is going to be long till I get caught up. I started growing my boobs in the third grade, by the time I was in 5th grade I was already pushing a B-C cup. I guess that's when my insecurities started, getting teased by... READ MORE

I'm 5'4" and 128 lbs small frame , cup dd. I have bad neck and shoulder pain. I'm looking for relief. After having all my kids gravity has taken it's toll. Tired of unraveling them at night and rolling them back up in the morning. When I'm lying down they flop to the sides. They hurt... READ MORE

Wow.. Where to start.. I have been wanting a breast reduction for about 38 years. I have always had large breast for as long as I can remember. Right now I am a 40DD and cannot wait for the BR date to be here. My dream size would be full B/ small C. My motivation for the procedure is to... READ MORE

Thanks to every contributor on this site. You have all helped towards this point & a surgery date of August 24. As I live in Australia I have used Australian pricing and bra sizing. I will include a pic of one of my bra tags so the size will translate to all. I cannot wait to 1) Ditch... READ MORE

I came home from work to find an acceptance letter in the mail from my insurance company! I never thought they would approve it. I've always been bigger. I'm super tall, big hips, and yes...big boobs. Growing up it always bothered me that I couldn't wear tank tops and bathing suits like 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

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. I had a hysterectomy done in 2005, and ever since then, my breasts have grown and grown. I went from a C to a DDD in that time. My back and shoulders are in constant... READ MORE

I have read several reviews and now I'm writing one of my own. I'mm 33 years old and I've had big boobs since I hit puberty! I grew so much the summer between 6th and 7th grade that I was teased and accused of stuffing my bra. It was relentless for a year or so.... and even after that I would... READ MORE

So I went to see Dr. Horndeski for second consultation and after reading all the reviews on here and speaking with 5 different patients regarding their personal experience with their results after breast reduction and lift I was convinced that I had done my research, so I finally put my deposit...
