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 ›

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

I just got the bill from my surgery and the PS charged $14,000 and the ambulatory center charged $14,000. I live in central Illinois and these charges seem extremely high. Luckily, my insurance covered all but my $250 deductible. I love the new look though and needed to do it 35 years ago! I'm... READ MORE

I've been lurking on the BR reviews for over one year. I'm really nervous about anesthesia, infection, hematoma and ??? Just like the rest of you ladies, I can't wait to wear spaghetti straps and be able to run comfortably without 2 super tight sports bras. I'm not telling anyone I know, b/c... READ MORE

After 3 kids and large breasts since I hit puberty, I was done. 36H breasts on a 5'1 small frame just wasn't fun. I have large indentations stuck in my shoulders, chronic back pain, weight gain due to inactivity from pain and worst of all, a horrible sense of self worth. I felt like a freak show... 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

I am writing this review to help others! It's only been 9 months since my first reduction in April 2013. After 1 week, the problems starting occurring and it was all downhill for about 8 weeks. I was grateful that I found this website, which helped me see how others went through similar... READ MORE

Well, it's currently in the wee hours of the morning. I'm up, doing the usual, reading on how I can get insurance to cover my breast reduction. A little back story, shall you. As far as I can remember, I was wearing a 36C bra at the age of 9. Yep, you read that right, full developed breast... READ MORE

Hey guys, I've been lurking for a few weeks! I have been toying with the idea of getting a breast reduction for the last few years. I have always had large breast but they became unmanageable once I had my son in October of 2012. After having a child it seemed like the elasticity went away, not... READ MORE

I sought a breast reduction because I have always been self conscious about the size of my breast. I often would hide inside to avoid looks and the judgement about the size of my breast, which is currently more than a 46DDD. I can't wait to have them reduced. I have my consultation 6/25/13....

Hi RS Family, Sorry for the long post but here goes. I "think" I've finally decided to take the plunge and get a BR and then a TT or some other lower parts procedure thereafter. Breast History: I've had large breasts (perky I might add) for as long as I can remember since developing, but was... READ MORE

I am planning a reduction for early Jan I hope. I am currently looking up docs etc. i live in a small town and on the cal/nevada border and have to stay in cal for insurance. Most Docs are 2 hrs away. I have been reading tons of posts here and it has been a huge help in preparing. I did get... READ MORE

I have always had large breast since childhood when leaving school I was a 32dd. After my first child at the age of 22 I breast fed for around 2 months and since then my breast just have not stopped growing. I am 5ft7inch and weigh 82kg. I have continuous neck and shoulder pain and find it... READ MORE

I JUST found out that my insurance company is going to cover a breast reduction. I've been lurking on this site for months (you all are so inspiring!) and based on your experiences with insurance companies, I thought it was going to be much more of a rigmarole than it was. I want to detail the... READ MORE

I am 51, 5ft 9 in. weigh 166 - always tall and thin until peri -menopause. It has literally been kicking my #@#....... Fat deposited in the worst places, and I cannot get rid of it. I do 4or 5 MMA style workouts weekly and the fat doesn't budge. I have always hated my large breast. They are... READ MORE

I truly cannot believe the day I have been waiting for since I was 15 is here! I "grew up" pretty quickly, I was a B for a short period of time in 8th grade and before I finished 9th, I was a DD. The third D hit when I went to college, but I've lost most of the weight I gained and my breasts... READ MORE

I hope for this procedure is to help alleviate my back problems. I have also had really bad & really frequent migraines for the last 16 years. I'm tired of my breasts being what people remember about me. The last time I was properly measured I was a 38 GG, but that was a few years ago & I know I... READ 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

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 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
