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 have always been big and i was a 36DDD and 5'3.5". I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. I opted for a reduction at the time of the lumpectomy.

So my story, where to start? Well my first bra when I was 11 was a B cup and it all went down hill from there.

Hello! Instead of launching into my story, the one that we all share (D in 8th grade, DD in 10th, G in 12th, and G-HH now), I'm going to talk about my experience so far.

I have had large heavy breasts all my adult life and for the majority of the time coped well with them. I was self conscious at times but that wasn't my motivation for having the surgery. I chose to have a reduction due to the increasing thoracic (upper back), shoulder and neck pain, pins and... READ MORE

Hello, everyone! I decided a long time ago that I wanted a breast reduction to go from a 36DD to a 36B to help eliminate my back/shoulder/neck pain and get rid of the indentations from my bra straps, but didn't actually start the process until October 2012 (which is the same month I got...

It's been quite a journey. I'm currently a 38H last time I measured. I get depressed measuring so I don't do it but once a year maybe. I'm miserable.
