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 ›

After 3 kids and large breasts since I hit puberty, I was done. 36H breasts on a 5'1 small frame just wasn't fun. I have large indentations stuck in my shoulders, chronic back pain, weight gain due to inactivity from pain and worst of all, a horrible sense of self worth. I felt like a freak show... READ MORE

Hey guys, I've been lurking for a few weeks! I have been toying with the idea of getting a breast reduction for the last few years. I have always had large breast but they became unmanageable once I had my son in October of 2012. After having a child it seemed like the elasticity went away, not... READ MORE

I sought a breast reduction because I have always been self conscious about the size of my breast. I often would hide inside to avoid looks and the judgement about the size of my breast, which is currently more than a 46DDD. I can't wait to have them reduced. I have my consultation 6/25/13....

I hope for this procedure is to help alleviate my back problems. I have also had really bad & really frequent migraines for the last 16 years. I'm tired of my breasts being what people remember about me. The last time I was properly measured I was a 38 GG, but that was a few years ago & I know I... READ MORE

Hi everyone, This website has played a big part in my decision to final pursue breast reduction surgery. I've been thinking about it since high school and all your stories inspired me to start looking at options. I have been carrying around 32 H's for a long time and my back and neck pain have...

I've had large "girls" ever since I can remember and they've never really been exactly where I thought they should be (at least according to society). The older I got, the heavier, bigger and longer they got. At 23 I married, and at 27 had my first child - definitely things started moving... READ MORE

Was available to send to insurance with the PS pics taken of me. So, I got denied and lived with these double H's for anothet 4 years. This time, with proper sicumentation and xrays showing arthritis in my back, I got a super quick approval. I have been trying to ease my family into whats going... READ MORE

So, after three consults over the years, I finally decided it is time for a reduction I have pretty much wanted my whole life. I was the little girl that had to wear a bra before anyone else. The little girl that the boys always commented about my boobs. As an adult, I have had to buy old... READ MORE

I first started developing in 4th grade. By 6th grade, I was a C cup. The kids in school were cruel and relentless, making up stories that I was stuffing my bra. Each kid created a different story about what my boobs were made of - balloons, tissues, etc. They would slam into my shoulders as... READ MORE

My reduction has been approved by insurance :-) that part happened very quickly, maybe took 4 weeks. My preop is Sep 15 and my surgery is scheduled for October 14th. I have been pouring over every review I can find on this site and it has been so helpful! I wish someone would put together a... READ MORE

High school F-Cup..Right after I graduated I was G-cup...I had my daughter 3 years ago went to H-Cup breastfed her... READ MORE

I am a 23 year old mother to one sweet 2 year old boy. I sadly started wearing a bra when I was 8 years old and didn't stop growing until I was probably 17. I am currently a 40DDD or 38F (I think...never actually been sized) and very tired of the back and neck pain and difficulty exercising,... READ MORE

My Back, neck and shoulder pain were terrible, I honestly had no idea that large breasts could cause the problems that they were causing or I would have had this done years ago. It's odd how many people believe it's just for cosmetics, I guess they don't have large boobs and will never understand. READ MORE

I'm 34 years old and am the mother of 5. In 2000 I had a gastric bypass because I was weighing over 500 pounds and as a result I lost over 250 pounds. The drastic weight loss effected my already large chest and I ended up with allot of skin and allot of stress on my back and shoulders. I was in... READ MORE

I have to say that I never really thought I would do this surgery. It seemed scary & not worth it. From a young age (7th grade) I was already wearing a size D cup. Although it was difficult I learned to live with it. But then I hit 18 & it was hard to find any store that actually carried my bra... READ MORE

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. I've always been 'blessed', but they came like a raging bull once I decided to have the depo shot because of my painful menstral cycles. I was on... READ MORE

I have been researching the procedure ever since I decided to get one.(most of my adult life).i stop buying bras at 36DDD(and they were too small). My back hurt and had deep dark lines on my shoulders.my breast were heavy and my nipples looked downwards. the procedure was very smooth, i only... READ MORE

Absolutely satisfied with the immediate and long term results. I had opted against the muscle tightening in the TT to speed recovery time as I had been doing Pilates for a year at the time of surgery and felt it wasn't needed. Cappella was surprised that the result was as good as it was without... READ MORE

My story is like many of the wonderful ladies found here. I've had a large chest my entire adult life and I'm finally doing something about it. I'm 47 years old, married with 2 children -7 and 10. I had my children later so I've had to wait longer to get a BR. Still, I wish I had looked into... READ MORE

I am almost 4 weeks post op(2 more days) and I have lost my areola on the left breast due to blood supply loss. It has been very traumatic. I was very excited about this new journey and now regret doing it. If I could turn back time i would keep the breast I had. Lesson learned. Please know the... READ MORE
