Breast Reduction

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 ›

Consultation is July 7th. I have BCBSTX PPO plan, am nervous I won't be approved. I have had these problems since I was in 8th grade, so about 7 years. When I developed such large boobs, I decided to lose weight. So over the next two years, I lost about 30-35 pounds (I weighed 145) and it might... READ MORE

I'd been struggling with uneven breasts since I was a teenager. I had a reduction on my left side when I was 18 to try to correct it. It didn't help me to feel more confident really and it had been something that I stressed about daily for the past 10 years. Finally I decided I wouldn't let... READ MORE

I've had large breasts since I was about 16 years old. At that time I think they were a D or DD. They've continued to grow and I've talked about a breast reduction for the past 4 or 5 years. Finally, I've insured through my current employer and I went to see a Dr. Shore yesterday. Just walking... READ MORE

I am a 22 y/o woman standing tall at 5'2" (lol) and weighing about 170lbs and I had been thinking of getting a breast reduction for some years now but I never followed through with it due to my doubts of my insurance possibly not covering me because they will most likely consider me to be...

Just want to be smaller , pain free and able to fit clothes. Have been big breasted since about 18. Increasing after each child. Have had MRIs on neck and back.

After years of back and neck pain, and unwanted comments I made the decision to do something about it. From first meeting with Dr Williams to surgery day was 8 weeks. I was treated with respect all the way through and all of my questions were answered. Do research and get second opinions 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.
