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 ›

So in a little less than two weeks I will be having my breast reduction surgery. So far my experience with the surgeon and everyone has been great. I'm really excited this is happening. I didn't really realize until about a year ago how big my breasts were until I was sized and told I wore a... READ MORE

I am 5 days from having my breast reduction surgery. I was originally a 42DDD and have lost 50 pounds over a few years and now down to 38DD so now it's time to have this reduction! I am tired of wearing 2-3 sports bras just to work out and tired of the headaches and neck & back pain. I will do a... READ MORE

In high school, I was always bustier than my friends. I weighed no less than 110 pounds up until I graduated but still had these jugs that were nearly d cups on my chest! They run in my family, so I was blessed naturally, but when I started dating my boyfriend at 17, i added the bcp into the mix... READ MORE

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. The number one thing keeping me from doing it is the possibility of nipple sensation loss. The second thing is I have seen a lot of... READ MORE

I've been struggling with the decision to go forward for a long time. I rescheduled 4 times beginning this summer. Each time the office staff has been very pleasant and kind. I've gone from two consults and Dr.Oretro has patiently answered my questions without ego or fatigue. She's been... READ MORE

I have been on this site for quite sometime now dreaming about having a Breast Reduction. Well, I have finally taken the first steps! My story is the same as all of you: I've had large breasts since puberty, I am self conscious, terrible back pain, and I desire to feel more confident,... READ MORE

I've been thinking about a breast reduction for quite a while now. I've always been busty, but it's never really bothered me. I always have thought "Oh, they're not that big. They're pretty portioned to my body." I saw a few pictures from an event during the summer, and realized they are bigger... READ MORE

I have been stalking this site for the past week and I'm starting to freak out. I don't see a lot of reviews here from people my age so I thought I'd add my story. I've been thinking about getting a breast reduction for a while now and finally made an appointment to see my family doctor. She... 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 must say I was not like half the ladies on here that developed early. When I was in 8th grade everyone had Breasts, except me. After I started 9th grade and my Period came i started to bloom. What i hated most were the stretch marks. Ugh! But anyways im gonna fast forward this a bit. When I... READ MORE

My perspective is very similar to other ladies here, but also a little different because of my age. Like many I have wanted a reduction for years. Back in the day insurance was more restrictive, far more policies had exclusions than now and so I never even bothering talking to a PS about it. ... READ MORE

I've been heavy-chested since I was 12 yrs old. At that point, I was a 34 D, and by the time I had my third child in 2010, I was a 36 G. I've since gone up to a 36 H. I've always wanted to get a breast reduction, but I wanted to be able to breastfeed my children. My husband and I don't plan to... READ MORE

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

I am a 36 F/G I hate my boobs, I look weird and out of proportion, dying of back pain. I went to get a quotation at a doctor in St Augustine : the doctor costs R 20 000, anesthetic is R 10 000, Theatre room is R 67 000. Quotation at Life Crompton Hospital in Pinetown: Theatre Room R 55 000 for... 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

Hello all. So glad that I found this forum. I literally NEVER considered a BR until about 2 months ago. I am a 38N. I've always had large breast to balance a "big" butt. I've been a DD since high school despite wearing a size 4 prom dress. I have PCOS and begin to gain weight in when I was in my... READ MORE

I hope to track my progress from booking to recovery, in the hope it will inform and support anyone else looking to go through the same thing - its a big scary procedure and I know personally I was hungry for every detail I could find to help me plan my way through it. I have wanted this for a... 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
