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 ›

Doctors had been advising me for years that I should probably consider a breast reduction. I was always hesitant because I did not want to undergo any type of surgery. A friend of mine underwent a breast reduction. She convinced me that it was probably a good idea that I do so as well. I am... READ MORE

I've been thinking about a breast reduction for quite a while now. I've always been busty, but it's never really bothered me. I always have thought "Oh, they're not that big. They're pretty portioned to my body." I saw a few pictures from an event during the summer, and realized they are bigger... READ MORE

Hello, I had my consultation today at 9 am in Lgrange, Illinois, the ride was long, but it went well, I was a lil bit nervous because the only one that had seen my GIRLS was my hubby, the appointment was brief and very informative and the Dr. was extremely professional, and young but his grades...

I've talked about having a breast reduction for YEARS. I'd probably still just be thinking about it/wishing for one. I decided to pursue a consultation. After a long wait for that, and then a denial by my insurance company. My husband encouraged me to go through with it anyway. So, I'm now... READ MORE

I had my first doctor visit yesterday and already decided that I like the plastic surgeon. He took his time with me and was very nice. I was told I will have surgery in about 2 months. I need to have a mammogram first. I've never had one. I've been reading previous reviews. Thank you... READ MORE

White scar rings around my nipples with radiating white stitching scars - VERY SEXY (not). When I... 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
