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 wanted to consider a breast reduction for two reasons: my breast size was not proportionate to my body and I deserved and was ready for a "new me". I struggled with ill-fitting clothes and self image. While a DD bra in my 20's looked fine, it didn't as I aged and had breast-fed 3 kids. I... READ MORE

I haven't always been big, in my 30's I was a D cup, which I could handle. With my two pregnancies which I had late, I gained a cup size, then came the menopause and I find myself an out of proportion F/G cup. I am short 5ft 2inches with a small frame for example I am a size 2 shoe (US 5), so... READ MORE

Hi I'm 29 years old. I've been top heavy since High School. Im a barber, who works 7 days a week. It's frustrating being on my feet all day with heavy breasts. I normally wear 2 bra's, an undershirt, and two T-Shirts just to be comfortable, which really makes me uncomfortable.. It's hard to... READ MORE

I walked into the Encino office thinking what am I doing here. Then you talk to Myria, Sylvia, Patty, Jazmin and all the other girls in the office and the ones on 12th floor in the preop/lab, you feel at home. I love Dr. Hodnett. IWow he is a true artist. I love Dr. D. I am beyond excited... READ MORE

I decided to post my progress on here because so many lovely ladies have allowed me to see their results so I know what to expect! Long awaited breast reduction- 21 year old with large, sagging breasts, back and neck pain, irritation underneath, trapping them underneath me if I sleep braless...... READ MORE

Hi Everyone! I have been reading this site religiously for about four months, it has really helped me make my decision. I have been considering a breast reduction for about a year but I guess it was not something I ever really thought I could do. People ask me all the time if I have thought... READ MORE

I am very scared to have this done but I am also looking forward to this. My back aches as well as my neck. I have my free consultation today with Dra Tania Medina after reading several reviews and visiting her site and seeing the many pictures of results from patients. She was very nice and... READ MORE

I'm so excited and a bit nervous. I can't believe that I am less than 48 hours away from this really happening. I have had big boobs forever and I tried 10 years ago to get insurance to cover the surgery, but it was denied. Fast forward 10 years and I finally have insurance approval and I'm... READ MORE

I just want to write a review about my procedure and I want to say it is the best thing that I could have ever done for myself I had really saggy deflated boobs after breast-feeding and four children later. I also want to say that Dr. Esmillian over exceeded my expectations as far as the... READ MORE

Excuse the fake tan, I just wanted to put a couple of pics up to show all and esp the June ladies I've been talking too so much just how uneven my breasts are. I just don't know if they will settle. What can change so much to even them out and stop the lop sided look. The right had lipo and is... READ MORE

I've had large breast since I was a teen. Started the process before but never followed through. I decided this is it, called Dr. Scheirle and after my appt. I was confident that my insurance would pay. I've been anxiously waiting for approval which came last week. Surgery is in 3 weeks..can't... READ MORE

My schedule prior to the reduction was so busy, so sorry if this first one is going to be long till I get caught up. I started growing my boobs in the third grade, by the time I was in 5th grade I was already pushing a B-C cup. I guess that's when my insecurities started, getting teased by... READ MORE

I'm 5'4" and 128 lbs small frame , cup dd. I have bad neck and shoulder pain. I'm looking for relief. After having all my kids gravity has taken it's toll. Tired of unraveling them at night and rolling them back up in the morning. When I'm lying down they flop to the sides. They hurt... READ MORE

I've always wanted a reduction, but I would never have been able to justify the expense, and I didn't think my health insurance would pay for it. I'm a 34H, and over the years, I had increasing problems with pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. Driving long distances and working at the... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I was so excited when I found out that I could get this surgery covered by my medical assistance and at 100% covered. So this was even more motivation for me to get the surgery. I had been to my pc twice got approval and was scheduled within a month. Surgery was done 4/28/15! I am... READ MORE

I have not been satisfied with my breasts because they were really different in size. I think I was wearing a C cup in grade 5! Losing weight doesn't help, have a terrible back, and I was plain sick and tired of that bigger breast not staying inside my bra when I bent over or exercised. Once I... READ MORE

Hello, everyone. I am scheduled for surgery next week (August 20th, 2015). I am nervous and so, so, excited. Like many of you I have had large breasts for a long time. I started growing when I was 8 years old and was a double D by the time I was 10. They have always been a sore subject for me. I... READ MORE

Wanted to do this for a while, nervous about size, shape and recovery. I want to go from a 36G to a 36D or DD. I DO NOT want to end up to small, it won't fit my body type. Kaiser approved immediately. Doctor is proposing 640 on one side and about 550 on the other. :) more to come...... READ MORE

I got approved the same day for my surgery and was scheduled to have it the next week but I got scared and moved the date to give me more time to think about it. I should have done this years ago. I was a 40DDD and I should end up around a C. I love the results so far. Today makes 2 weeks and my... READ MORE

Like most of the women on this site getting reductions, I have always been large breasted. As a younger girl and woman they really stood out because I was much thinner. I had nicknames in school and was always referred to as the "one with big boobs". It was horrible. I constantly could not find... READ MORE
