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 ›

29yr old no kids. I've had large breast since I can remember. In like 7th grade I was a C cup already, becoming a D by freshman yr and now a 40DD. I had sooooo much trouble finding gowns for school dances usually having to go 2-3 sizes bigger. And now its tryingbto find tops that dont expose too... READ MORE

I'm 57, 5'2", 190 lbs. I've lost 50 lbs so far, but I quit losing weight because I can't fit into a smaller shirt. I don't know what size I am, but the cups of my 42DDD are too small. My hubby of 38 years is encouraging me to do this. In fact, I'm using money he saved for us a first cruise... READ MORE

Due to chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, I had been seeing a chiropractor for about 18 months. I didn’t always have large breasts. About 3½ years ago my OB/GYN and a general surgeon went in together to clean up a large amount of adhesions and scar tissue that seemed to be attached to... READ MORE

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

So I went to a few consultations and decided on a doctor, Dr. Roland E Finger. He was charming and funny and has had over 40 years of plastic surgery experience. He and his staff made me comfortable and spoke with me about the risks and the results I can expect to receive. I was looking for a C... READ MORE

Reading everyone elses reviews helped me immensely in making my decision, as well as knowing what to expect along the way. I wanted to be sure to repay the favor by posting my journey so that others make make the best decision for them, as well as learn from my experience. I have wanted a breast... READ MORE

"We consider that size abnormal". I clearly remember the sales clerk saying those words to a 15 year old me when I asked for a 32DD. I don't know what my size is truly. I've always been embarrassed about my breasts. I developed early and wasn't mentally or emotionally prepared to be looked at... 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

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

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 hope for this procedure is to help alleviate my back problems. I have also had really bad & really frequent migraines for the last 16 years. I'm tired of my breasts being what people remember about me. The last time I was properly measured I was a 38 GG, but that was a few years ago & I know I... READ MORE

Well! Here I am at age 61 with a 38 F. I would love to be a C. Hopefully, that will happen. I am nervous but extremely excited. Every night before going to bed, I read this blog. I find it so helpful and informative. I hope I get through this as easily as some of you have. I try yo... 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

Well went to see my plastic surgeon for the first time he said that I was a good candidate for the surgery. Just have to wait to see if my insurance will pay for it. My back hurts me so bad even my neck hurts:( I am worried about having the surgery but I hurt so bad:( He asked me had I ever had... READ MORE

I have always been busty they run in my family. I was a 34C in high school at 5' 5" and 110 pounds. With each childbirth and nursing they got larger. I have spent years hiding them. I Always wear V-neck shirts. They limit me to clothing choices it seems that while most of the world wants to show... READ MORE

I've been heavy-chested since I was 12 yrs old. At that point, I was a 34 D, and by the time I had my third child in 2010, I was a 36 G. I've since gone up to a 36 H. I've always wanted to get a breast reduction, but I wanted to be able to breastfeed my children. My husband and I don't plan to... READ MORE

In high school, I was always bustier than my friends. I weighed no less than 110 pounds up until I graduated but still had these jugs that were nearly d cups on my chest! They run in my family, so I was blessed naturally, but when I started dating my boyfriend at 17, i added the bcp into the mix... READ MORE

I started puberty at a very young age and by the time I reached the first year of secondary school I was already a D cup. It gained unwanted attention from men and boys and I felt like it made me feel i had to grow up quicker than my my friends who still looked like 'girls'. Don't get me wrong,... 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
