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 been top-heavy. And every year my breasts would grow heavier and heavier. In the last 18 months or so, I've been in such AGONY from back pain, neck pain (spasms) and shoulder pain. I was prescribed muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory meds, and given a referral to undergo... READ MORE

Hello All! I'm a 34 year old mother of 3 handsome boys. I weigh 267 lbs, standing 5'3" tall (or not so much), and I currently wear a cup size of HH. For as long as I can remember, I've been well endowed. In fact, I don't ever recall wearing a training bra. All through high school and college, I... READ MORE

I went out yesterday from the clinic. My breast reduction operation went very well. The surgeon only took away that 180g each side, it is far from the 300 required by CPAM for support, but he did not want me to take off too much. I will make a C cup that's what I wanted.The transaction remains... READ MORE

I interviewed several board certified plastic surgeons in my area and chose Dr. Rubis. I'm 5'7" 135 lbs and 32G. I have had one child. I'm fairly active, but have lots of upper back, neck, and shoulder pain- which increased since having a child. Just being in an upright position all day with... READ MORE

From other reviews I'm kind of behind the I'll write a small summary of what has happened so far and update from here. This all kind of snowballed when I talked to 2nd pain doctor about a possible BR. My first one in NYC was very much against it. Not sure why, but I assume it's because... READ MORE

I am size 44 DDD, have had large breasts since puberty, but as I've aged and gained weight, breasts have become very large, painful back and heavy chest, ongoing rash beneath breasts. Things not getting better and I want to do the surgery before I get older. I want to be a C cup. I have been... READ MORE

I have been contemplating have a breast reduction for at least 10 years. The main reason why I haven’t really moved forward is mainly fear. However, my breast are now giving me so much discomfort. Last year I went for a consolation with one plastic surgeon and I really was not impressed. ... READ MORE

For a small person I have very large breasts. I'm a 30GG however wear 32GG, I have had problems with getting dresses in a size 10, problems getting shirts. My decision to have a breast reduction is based on frustration and the desire to have small breast. I have had my first consultation and... READ MORE

My story so far. I am due for a breast reduction on 19th Feb 2015 and would like to document and share my experience and story with you all, as I have found this website very helpful when looking into this procedure. As the title says I am 23 years old with no kids and live in Australia. 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

Backstory -> First Consultation I've had a sizeable rack since I was about 11 years old. I'm 23 now. After learning how to properly fit a bra 3-4 years ago, losing some weight (that I later gained back, but hey, it happens), and getting the chance to go to a chiropractor for a while, most of my...

I'm 18 years old and a senior in high school. I've had large boobs since I was in elementary school, the final size before my surgery was a DDD left breast and an F right breast. There was a major size difference, almost 300g more in my right than in my left. I am just barely 5'3 and I weighed... READ MORE

I had back pain for the past 5 yrs. I was a 34 d prior to my first child , after my second child my cup size was an I cup. Dr. Stephenson was the third PS that I consulted with. I enjoyed his eagerness to answer my questions and I never felt rushed. Even post op he was always available... READ MORE

Last week I received my insurance approval for surgery. Currently, I'm 125lbs.; and I wear a bra size of 30-32E (ideal size is a 31E). This surgery is something I have wanted for the past 7-8 years. After my mid-February consultation, I was surprised at how easily it was for me to: obtain... READ MORE

Since I was 12 I developed large great (genetic in my family as well), by Jr. High, I was a "D" cup. After children, breast feeding, life long lost and gain of weight and after gastric by pass surgery, my breast were handing past my belly bottom. I was horrified to gather it all up and try to...

I'm hoping to go at least to a dd or DDD which ever better than what I'm at now. Surgery is schedule for... READ MORE

After becoming fit, I lost the fat around my rib cage. I didn't realize how much it was supporting my breasts. As I went from a 38 to a 34, my breasts became harder to hold still during my runs. My breasts didn't decrease in size despite losing 40 pounds of fat. I had scars from the chafing on... READ MORE

It’s still unreal to me that I actually had the surgery done – I had it rescheduled twice before actually going forward with it. You may think that lugging around 40HH/I breasts for over 20 years would be enough reason for me to jump at the opportunity, but I was so scared about actually... READ MORE
