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 had my consultation with Dr. White a couple weeks ago and I am starting to get really nervous. I have wanted a BR for almost a decade and I am so afraid insurance won't cover it. I usually wear a 34E/F and I want to go down to a B-cup. Dr.White told me during the consultation that my right... READ MORE

3 mos post op. Went from a 34DDD to a 36C & I love it! I wish I did this years ago, finally decided to bite the bullet at age 34. But can someone please tell me what is up with these RED wide scars? My dr said they look fine and will heal and gave me a Rx compound gel to use. Anyone else like... READ MORE

I have always had very large breasts like many of you and have been miserable and embarrassed. I think I developed overnight and went from having nothing to a D in my pre-teens. My breasts pre-op size were a 40H and now post-op I'll either be a high D to low DD. I've always wanted a breast... READ MORE

Now's the time, and the serious journey has begun! I have been desperately in need of a breast reduction for the past 10 years. I had a hysterectomy done in 2005, and ever since then, my breasts have grown and grown. I went from a C to a DDD in that time. My back and shoulders are in constant... READ MORE

First I just want to thank all of you ladies for sharing your experiences. I have read so many of your reviews and it's really helpful to hear what to expect from people who have been through it already. I'm 5'11", 195 lbs, DDD. I've been considering breast reduction for years. When I was 22... READ MORE

I've had large boobs most of my teenager and adult life I am a size F, going down to a C Cup. Absurb staying many back, shoulder and neck pain. I've gone through physical therapy no help with the pain. After years of contemplating and sick of the pain and discomfort that comes from having... READ MORE

About me, and why I need this done:I am 20 years old, 5'5 150lbs. I have an athletic build, and started developing larger breasts in about my senior year in high school. I am currently a 36G, and am looking into being a 36C. I am interested in the surgery because I am in college studying and... READ MORE

So I can't believe I have finally came to this decision. It has taken me a long time to be ready. My husband and I have talked about this for at least a few years. But the journey took me to this time in my life. Menopause has kicked my butt. I started 2 years ago, when I was 49. That was hard... READ MORE

(Melb Australia) I was a D cup by the time I was 18 even though I was slim. My well endowed chest was then a source of embarrassment to me for the rest of my adult life. I continued to get even bigger after having 2 kids, 5 years apart. More recently they were so big and daggy and heavy I felt... READ MORE

Like most women before me I was on the site for months looking at breast reduction procedures. I'm 28 5'5 and 167lbs. My breast have always been big. After my son I was a DDD.CUP and recently after my daughter is went up to a 36F. My back pain was horrible. I finally decided to get a reduction... READ MORE

I'm 37 years old and a 48dd I hope to be a b or small c cup after surgery. I know in my heart I'm doing the right thing. I have always had large breasts and developed at a young age.I have large pendulum breasts that cause upper back pain and bra grooving. I also have to buy huge tops just so my... READ MORE

I used to love my large breasts, but after having my children, they lost their shape. They were handing so low and felt so heavy they were causing me back pain. I was stuffing them into bras and it seemed like nothing fit well. Perhaps the worst part was that I was having difficulty working... READ MORE

My breast were very large (DDD…if not bigger). I was always well-developed from childhood puberty and continued to get larger after the birth of my three children. After I knew I was done having children, I wanted to have the breast reduction to help with neck/back pain, to have better... READ MORE

I am writing this review to help others! It's only been 9 months since my first reduction in April 2013. After 1 week, the problems starting occurring and it was all downhill for about 8 weeks. I was grateful that I found this website, which helped me see how others went through similar... READ MORE

I went in yesterday for a breast reduction . I am 35 and my second pregnancy just did a number on my boob's. Until about two days ago, I was wearing a 38H which if fitted properly probably should have been a 38I. Dr Nalani is amazing and his bed side manner is like no other. I was in pre-op... READ MORE

I had breast implants put in 11 years ago and after having my 3rd son and breast fed him for over 8 months the pretty 36d went to a saggy heavy 36g, yuck! So I'm only 24 hours after surgery and the pain has been been very minimal today, I can not believe it, yesterday was a bit rough but I can't... READ MORE

Hi! I am 18 years old, 125 pounds, 5'4", & I wear a 32DDD Victoria's Secret bra. I have had large breasts since middle school, & I began wearing bras in lower school. I have been interested in a reduction since I was a freshman (I am a senior now), but I'm just not sure. I have back and neck... READ MORE

I am 24 years old, 5'10, I weigh 145 and it's pretty much all muscle. I honestly don't know what my "correct" size is, but the bra that I have that fits the best is a 32J. Every day consists of me wearing a regular bra that doesn't fit right, a sports bra that is entirely too small (try finding... READ MORE

Ive always thought about having a breast reduction. Large breasts are definitely something that runs in the family. Growing up I was never proud of my well endowed chest. I was a C cup by grade 5. The teasing and bullying that ensued was unimaginable. Why would somebody taunt and tease someone... READ MORE
