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've always had large breasts and the resulting pain, but never thought I would get a breast reduction. Even though I was overweight, when I was at my thinnest, I still had very overly large breasts (DD). Then, when I had a workplace injury that hurt my neck and left shoulder/arm, I tried all...

I have dealt with large breast pretty much all my life. Starting out as a B cup in the 3rd grade, I had a feeling I would always be big chested, but not this much. In high school I started noticing that it was limiting my ability to succeed in sports and even feel comfortable among my classmates... READ MORE

I don't even remember when I wear a training bra, its like I went from having no breasts to having big breast. I have back pain shoulder pain, neck pain, my bra strap digs in my... READ MORE

I'm 38 years old, live a very active lifestyle, and my 34DDD breasts were uncomfortable, unattractive and causing me neck and back pain. After very extensive research, and numerous consultations, I decided to fly to Beirut, Lebanon, to have Dr. Ziad El Asmar perform the surgery. He was very... READ MORE

I had my first consultation yesterday with Dr. Earl Stephenson, Jr. He was very informative about the procedure and was almost as excited for me as I was! I'm anxious to see if my BCBS insurance will cover the surgery. They said it's going to take a month to see if it's going to be accepted and... READ MORE

This site has been an amazing resource all the way from my initial consultation through what is now my fourth week post op. I'm hoping my review can help someone who may be considering this surgery. I've always hated my large breasts they snuck up on me in 5th Grade I have always been very self... READ MORE

Hello All. I have been reading posts for approximately one month or so; since my insurance approved my surgery. I definitely have benefited from the transparency and did not want my surgery to pass without sharing my testimonial in an effort to help someone else. I am a melting pot of emotions... READ MORE

I am 31 years old nurse that is so ready for the surgery. I'm just shy of a month until the day. I have 4 kids, married, and work full time. I have 10 days scheduled to be off work following the surgery. I have been more than ready for half my life to have smaller boobs. I started wearing a... READ MORE

THIS WILL BE LONG!! ;) Like many other women on this site, I've almost always had big breasts. In... READ MORE

Was tired of the heaviness of my breast, sweating underneath, moving around them for sleep and how I looked in my clothes. Also one was bigger than the other. Now they are near perfect! I love them! Asked my gyno who she recommends. I had consultation with DR. TOM GALLAHER. I didn't need to shop... READ MORE

I've been researching breast reductions for years and I've finally decided to get the ball rolling ! I've asked around and decided my first action would be to change my insurance provider. I went with BCBS because of the ease of communication and they are pretty much excepted everywhere plus I... READ MORE

My breast were always uneven. I could always deal with it by hiding it. With the pregnancy, my right breast went from B cup to D cup and the left one stayed pretty much the same. With the breast feeding, I was a full 38 DD. I had to put a prosthesist (like the ones for the mastectomy patients...... READ MORE

For as long as I can remember, i've been a busty gal. It's almost like in the elementary school (yes, elementary school) my breasts appeared overnight, and even in the third grade I was known as "the girl with big boobs". By fifth grade, I was a DD cup. I am now a nineteen year old high school... READ MORE I have been a stalker since I became a member in 2014. I want to thank all you ladies who have shared your stories, without your reviews I would have never got the courage to get my BR! My story is the same as many. Had big boobs since middle school. I got it from both sides of the... READ MORE

Well since I can remember I have always been heavy chested for a slim girl. But once I began depo birth control I gained a lot of weight. My then perky 34DD turned into a 38H, add on another 2 years and a baby, I was ready to get rid of them. It was hard to find a doctor that I liked who would... READ MORE

I had been having back problems for years. I went through physical therapy, epidural injections, muscle relaxers and nothing was relieving the pain. My next option was back surgery although no one could guarantee it would be successful and would require a lot of downtime. I went and met with... READ MORE

I am 5' 2" and fit into petite pants and skirts, but blouses are either pulling on the buttons, or shaped like a square sack. I just want to feel feminine, and no longer be physically or psychologically burdened by these anchors. Cleavage - smeevage, bring on the lace bras with the tiny little... READ MORE
