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 ›

Dr G.... is simply AMAZING!!! She went out of her way to get my surgery done before the end of 2014 to save ME money. She schedules me for Christmas Eve. She was very attentive and answered all my questions happily without ever making me feel like I was taking up her time or anything to that... READ MORE

I have read many reviews on this site and it was very helpful in making my decision. I read about all the possible things that could go wrong.

Hi all! I'm 19, 5'3 and 125lbs and I've been trying to get this reduction for a while now with horrible neck, shoulder, and back pain and almost constant migraines and headaches.

Hi everyone! I'm 22, 5'4", and about 120 llbs. I've had some "final straw" moments this summer that have ended in tears and am now considering a BR more than ever.
