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 ›

Well, it's currently in the wee hours of the morning. I'm up, doing the usual, reading on how I can get insurance to cover my breast reduction. A little back story, shall you.

Doctors had been advising me for years that I should probably consider a breast reduction. I was always hesitant because I did not want to undergo any type of surgery. A friend of mine underwent a breast reduction. She convinced me that it was probably a good idea that I do so as well. I am... 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
