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 know it may sound cliche to say I should have done this years ago but it's true!! Absolutely one of the best decisions of my life. From consultation to follow up Dr Stoeckel and his team were wonderful. Very approachable, kind and put me at ease immediately. I would not hesitate to reccomend.... READ MORE

I was a late bloomer, but when I finally did bloom, I bloomed hard. The last time I was measured, I was a 34/36 H, which is the size bra I am wearing in the pictures, but I believe I am bigger than that now due to changes in birth control. I very rarely wear underwire bras because they are so... READ MORE

I have known since I was ~14 years old and a 32C that I would someday need a breast reduction, and here we are! At 5'8" and 125 lbs I am carrying a full size 34DD/34DDD set of breasts, and ready for some relief! My shoulders ache daily from my bra straps, my neck/back worry me that I will be a... READ MORE

This was the best thing I have ever done. I instantly felt as light as a feather when I woke up from surgery. My surgeon is amazing and I am healing so well. I highly recommend this surgery to anyone who is thinking about getting it! My whole healing process has been pretty easy. The most... READ MORE

Like many others on here, I can't even remember the last time my boobs were small or at least a "normal" size. I can't remember when I started wearing a bra but I was stuffing myself into a "C" in high school. It wasn't pretty! My weight has fluctuated over the years, as has my boob size. I... READ MORE

So my day is Friday!!! I've been back and forth with this decision and decided last year that enough was enough.. Let's do it! I've always been big 36D/DD but after my daughter 10 years ago I never went back down in size. I went up 4 cup sizes in my first trimester and stayed that way. 32HH!... READ MORE

I've always wanted a reduction, but I would never have been able to justify the expense, and I didn't think my health insurance would pay for it. I'm a 34H, and over the years, I had increasing problems with pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. Driving long distances and working at the... READ MORE

I was finally able to schedule my BR this past week! About a year ago I started considering having a breast reduction done, but was in the middle of moving and it just wasn't a good time to pursue it. Last November I finally had my first consult. Basically, a nurse saw me, an hour and a half... READ MORE

So I have just come out of surgery. So far not too much pain, just had a bed pan wee which was weird, dreading the next one, but I guess the nurses do it all the time.. Quick question.

I'm 5'4" and 128 lbs small frame , cup dd. I have bad neck and shoulder pain. I'm looking for relief. After having all my kids gravity has taken it's toll. Tired of unraveling them at night and rolling them back up in the morning. When I'm lying down they flop to the sides. They hurt... READ MORE

I have 40f cup size , I'm 5ft 2. I hate seeing myself in the mirror. I have difficulties at the gym. When I wear my sports bra I feel like they are strangling me ????.
