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 ›

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

I have read about a million other reviews on here before making my decision to do this and I am 100% ready. I suppose I should share some things about myself! I am 19 and, like most other people that have gotten this procedure, I developed very early in the breast area. I was in 4th grade I had... READ MORE

High school F-Cup..Right after I graduated I was G-cup...I had my daughter 3 years ago went to H-Cup breastfed her... READ MORE

I am a 23 year old mother to one sweet 2 year old boy. I sadly started wearing a bra when I was 8 years old and didn't stop growing until I was probably 17. I am currently a 40DDD or 38F (I think...never actually been sized) and very tired of the back and neck pain and difficulty exercising,... READ MORE

I'm going in tomorrow for a consultation for breast reduction. I'm kind of nervous and excited at the same time. I have been a DDD since my sophomore year in high school and I'm 24 now. I have just lost 50 pounds thinking the weight in my boobs and pain and my back would help but I'm still in... READ MORE

My Back, neck and shoulder pain were terrible, I honestly had no idea that large breasts could cause the problems that they were causing or I would have had this done years ago. It's odd how many people believe it's just for cosmetics, I guess they don't have large boobs and will never understand. READ MORE

I'm 34 years old and am the mother of 5. In 2000 I had a gastric bypass because I was weighing over 500 pounds and as a result I lost over 250 pounds. The drastic weight loss effected my already large chest and I ended up with allot of skin and allot of stress on my back and shoulders. I was in... READ MORE

I have to say that I never really thought I would do this surgery. It seemed scary & not worth it. From a young age (7th grade) I was already wearing a size D cup. Although it was difficult I learned to live with it. But then I hit 18 & it was hard to find any store that actually carried my bra... READ MORE

I wish I had started this journey years ago instead of waiting until I was 42 there are a lot of things I would like to have done for instance getting married in a church in a wedding dress not in reg office in a trouser suit there was no way I would have had the confidence to walk down the...

I have always been active, but always had heavy breasts no matter how small my body. It didn't bother me until the pain started creeping into my neck back and shoulders. Now it's all I know. I have taken a step back, not being competitive because my back could let me down. 2 years and 3 surgeons... READ MORE

Well... I'm nervous as can be. I just got the approval from my insurance company yesterday as medical necessity. Gasp. I was sure they'd balk and deny. I admit, I cried.... After I sat in shock for 20 minutes reading and rereading until the words actually sunk in. My husband asked what the... READ MORE

It's been quite a journey. I'm currently a 38H last time I measured. I get depressed measuring so I don't do it but once a year maybe. I'm miserable. I've always been 'blessed', but they came like a raging bull once I decided to have the depo shot because of my painful menstral cycles. I was on... READ MORE

I have been researching the procedure ever since I decided to get one.(most of my adult life).i stop buying bras at 36DDD(and they were too small). My back hurt and had deep dark lines on my shoulders.my breast were heavy and my nipples looked downwards. the procedure was very smooth, i only... 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
