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 ›

I have been stalking this site for a while now, and it's really what gave me the courage to go and get checked out to see if I was able to get a breast reduction, and I qualified! I am 22 years old, 5'9", and 130 pounds, and currently a 34DDD, so I am all boobs! I'm super excited about the... READ MORE

So I been wanting a reduction for some time but for whatever reason thought it would be too much of a headache going through the process of getting it approved. I'm insured through tricare and other women I knew who got one said it took almost a year of appointments and complaining to get it... READ MORE

Hi all, I'm sure those of you interested in BR already know aaall about The Struggle. I'm also sure those of you who don't would have already read all about it. But I have my own tidbits to add to all the pre-op recollections and I hope it can be as reassuring and insightful as the other... READ MORE

I am a 36 F/G I hate my boobs, I look weird and out of proportion, dying of back pain. I went to get a quotation at a doctor in St Augustine : the doctor costs R 20 000, anesthetic is R 10 000, Theatre room is R 67 000. Quotation at Life Crompton Hospital in Pinetown: Theatre Room R 55 000 for... READ MORE

I am 36 years old. 5 1/2 dr weighing 158 lbs wearing a 34 DDD/E bra. I'm in need of a reduction because of the upper back/neck pain. I'm looking forward to this journey! I had a consul with Dr. Harkins today and he feels strongly about BCBS accepting me for the BR. Keeping my fingers... READ MORE

I have been suffering with large breast since my younger days. I realized I was a bit different from the age of 11 when the older women would tell me that I needed to wear a bra. All I wanted to do was play in the yard with everyone else. Later on In high school I was one of the larger chested... READ MORE

Hi all, I have been lurking for a bit but as my surgery date gets closer I would love to get engaged and post more. And I definitely could use the support! I am 28, 5'3", and 148 pounds. I currently am a 34F/G going hopefully down to a 34B. I want them to take as much as possible. My... READ MORE

I have severe back, shoulder and neck pain from overly large breasts. I've had this problem since puberty. I've also had issues finding bras that fit me well since my breasts are out of proportion and one is a couple cup sizes larger than the other. I am pretty sure my skeleton has permanent... READ MORE

I was a F/G cup and it was constant back, neck, shoulder pain. I was always hesitant to have the procedure done because I was scared, but I did my research and found Dr. Cohen with amazing reviews and decided to book an apt. Since my surgery I have been feeling like a new person no more pain... READ MORE

Hi, I'm finally meeting with my very popular ps, it's been 4 weeks to get a consultation. Like many of you , I go between excited and terrified. But, I've finally decided a little pain (I hope) is worse a lot of gain :) My appointment in Tuesday July 21, so I will update my post after I see him... READ MORE

Just had my surgery scheduled. Never been so excited in all my life. Never thought I could get insurance coverage. Hoping to be a B. Wondering about time off after, is 2 weeks enough? What is pre-op like for BR? How did people deal with work. I have been vague with some people and they usually... 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

Hi, I'm 46 y/o, 34GG (very dense). Not a lot of droop (no kids) 5'2 160 lbs. I'm one of those who doesn't remember the transition period of growing breasts, it's like as a teen, I woke up with D cups. I maintained D's a long time and eventually DD and for a while was wearing wrong sizes... READ MORE

Motivation: My breast were always pretty large for my age growing up. For the last 4 or 5 years I began to notice how much harder it was becoming for me to run or simply exercise in general. I also had a hard time finding button-ups that would fit properly and button on my breast area. I notice... READ MORE

After having problems with my back, neck and shoulders for many years, including a year where I could not hardly walk because of severe sciatica, I have decided to finally have a much needed breast reduction. I have lost 80 pounds and kept it off 11 years but the size of my breast did not... READ MORE

Like many of you girls on this wonderful forum, I've always been "the girl with the huge boobs." I'm relatively tall (5'7"), with a long torso, so it's been a little easier for me to hide them than some girls, but since about fourth grade, I've been self conscious of and teased about my breasts,...

So here i go. As scared and as i am happy. I can't wait for my big day. Would upload lots more... READ MORE

This is an informative site from the prospective of the patient. All the photos are helpful and everyone seems so happy about the choice they've made without having unreal expectations. It's like who cares about the scars it's the size that counts. I haven't seen any procedures like mine but... READ MORE

After having large breasts all my life, I decided it was time to have some control over my quality of life. My 40H breasts coupled with my short stature (5 foot) attributed to constant back, neck and upper arm pain. I am now 3 weeks post-op and I can really see the excellent results that will... READ MORE

Just like many on here, I've had large breasts since I was about 12/13. In 6th grade I was a C cup and by high school I was a DD. I have always been on the curvy side but when I was in high school I lost about 30lbs and my breasts never got smaller. They continued to grow and grow, and this past... READ MORE
