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 ›

Hello - I've spent the last few days reading many, many of your wonderful blogs and hoping to be able to be an active participant here. I've been wanting to have a BR for at least twenty-five years and investigated it about eighteen years ago but wasn't able to get the insurance and thought... READ MORE

Hello everyone. I've been lurking on the board for about a month now and I've finally decided a reduction is what I want to do. I like many others have experienced self-consciousness concerning my breasts. When I was about twelve, I cried because a lot of my peers had buds, I myself had none and... READ MORE

First appt with surgeon is done and date booked. I am concerned with how I will look once the reduction is done due to having symmastia (no real cleavage with boobs sitting low on chest wall). I hope I don't end up looking like I've got one big boob! I am actually feeling quite sick about it... READ MORE

Im 3 weeks post op, i was a 44 M before br, now i am a C/D cup now, still swollen.had 2.1 kilograms on left side which equals 4.69 lbs and 2.3 kilograms on right side which equals 5.070 lbs removed adds up to almost 10 lbs of boobs removed, and I had a free nipple areola graft. I am very tight... READ MORE

I did a full review for my mommy makeover, but I figured I would separate out the procedures, too, in case in helped someone else. I have been in pain for YEARS and always felt this hot poker pain between my shoulder blades. I'm 5'3" and 129, so the 34g was just too much for me. Saggy and not... READ MORE

I am a 38 year old mother of three and have been debating this for over ten years. Largest problem is me being afraid of anesthesia. Im 5"8 264 pounds and a size 42G. My last physician said i needed to lose weight first and I have lost 20 pounds or so, but my back pain prevents me from doing so... READ MORE

So since I was about 18 my breast have been pretty large. At the moment I am able to fit into a 40DD bra however when going by online measurement tips I should be a 40G. I have been obsessing over this website for a couple of weeks. I have two consultations scheduled the first is on 6/25 and the... 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

My breasts are 30 years old, hard working, nursed two kids for 16 months each and due for a make over! Happened very quickly in Calgary, AB. Expected to wait 2 years for consult then another year for surgery. Casually mentioned to MD I'd like a referral, 10 months later got a call and after... READ MORE

I am a 36 year old mom with two great kids ages 10 and 8. I have always been bigger on top (34c when I got married and have only grown from there) but haven't really thought about a breast reduction until this last year. I made three appointments this past winter and chose Dr Gorman Louie. He is... READ MORE

Hello I am a newbie in the room. I started my Journey to Breast Reduction in January 2014. Insurance denied my first claim and I had to appeal and it was overturned .I went from 38DDD to hopefully small 38C . I did measure around my breast with nothing on them before I was 44 and now im 39... READ MORE

Hey guys, Thank you so much for sharing your experiences both negative & positive I have indeed learned a lot. All my life I have undergone self esteem issues because of the size of my breast ( 34 DDD) not only did they prevent me from participating in sporting activities but they also provided... READ MORE

I have always had a love hate relationship with my breasts. I was a D cup at a young age and suffered from weak shoulders. In my early 20s I started lifting weights to strengthen and found that really helped my shoulder pain but unfortunately it made my breasts look even bigger! After having... READ MORE

I had a breast reduction on August 21st and though I was nervous, I couldn't wait to have the surgery. I went home the same day and my pain has been up and down, but very manageable with the pain meds or Tylenol. I saw my new chest for the first time 3 days after surgery and was taken aback by...

Like the rest of you, I have been HUGE my whole life! I have never been able to go bra less or wear some of cute, strapless, or spaghetti strap type clothing without being in total and complete discomfort! I was denied by my insurance company the first time but my doctor appealed the decision... READ MORE

I was very disappointed in my outcome. I had a breast reduction and abdominal lipo. My scars are jagged, my breasts are the same size as before surgery and my abdomen is very lumpy. Not happy at all. I went back in for a revision of the lipo. It's still lumpy and I have lost trust in his ability... READ MORE

I am wife, a mother and a woman who has had chronic back and neck pain. No amount of massage therapy or physio can fix the pain. I usually do two fun raising runs per year: Camp Ooch 10K & Run For Cure 5K. Training for these runs always threw my back out, even a cold, coughs & sneeze is just... READ MORE

So Idk why but I put a deposit down for Dr.fisher for my BBL in March now I'm getting a breast reduction right before Christmas. Merry Christmas to me!!! My doc is Tania Medina. She has been amazing thrus far and she has no problem responding. I paid my deposit and in the middle of sept I will... READ MORE

This is a cross review of my implant removal review - I had small (350/375 cc) implants removed but the reduction/lift is really more of what my surgery entailed so I thought I would post it over here as well. I'll get more of the information and pictures up as soon as I can. READ MORE

I am 31 years old and for my 31 bday which was aug1 I told my husband all I wanted was new boobs...and he is making that happen on Sept25 and I can't be more excited. I have had large boobs throughout high school but I was the star or my track team so I had to wear 2 bras to hold these babies... READ MORE
