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 ›

Like many of you girls on this wonderful forum, I've always been "the girl with the huge boobs." I'm relatively tall (5'7"), with a long torso, so it's been a little easier for me to hide them than some girls, but since about fourth grade, I've been self conscious of and teased about my breasts,...

I had been considering a breast reduction for sometime. For all the same reasons most everyone does. Shoulder pain, posture, neck pain, etc. I'm 5'5" 135lbs and DD's are not comfortable! Dr. Jabs was amazing, he's an artist in his field! His staff is very kind, caring and readily available!... READ MORE

I am posting this after it occurred. I started writing on POD 5 and added some previous information as well. I have had back pain and nerve compression (resulting in numbness to the thumb and first 2 fingers) on and off for years and I finally had the time to take care of this. I was... READ MORE

So I been wanting a reduction for some time but for whatever reason thought it would be too much of a headache going through the process of getting it approved. I'm insured through tricare and other women I knew who got one said it took almost a year of appointments and complaining to get it... READ MORE

I had a breast reduction in 1998, a few years ago my one breast started to grow again... a lot more than the other side. I was told because I'm so grossly over weight (190pounds and 66inch tall) that is the reason. I lost 57 pounds, and after than the breast even grown faster. I've been on... READ MORE

I'd been struggling with uneven breasts since I was a teenager. I had a reduction on my left side when I was 18 to try to correct it. It didn't help me to feel more confident really and it had been something that I stressed about daily for the past 10 years. Finally I decided I wouldn't let... READ MORE

Hi I'm 57 years old, happily married with 2 grown up children. I have like many of you been a stalker on this site since I joined in March.

Hello everyone! I have a consultation scheduled for a month from now. My motivation for getting a reduction mostly stems from being in pain and discomfort every day. I'm not %100 sure it's from the weight of my breasts but after going from doctor to doctor and specialist to specialist and... READ MORE

Surgery was originally scheduled for September 28th and got moved to October 19th. The doctor was going to be out of the country 3 days after my surgery, and he wants to be around for at least a week after, because my situation is complicated. Because I got a blood clot after my foot was cast... READ MORE

Well, I feel like I should track this process so I'm going to start posting pictures and such on here. My surgery is in 2 days and it's highly anticipated. I'll be heading off to Hawaii for college in January and my fingers are crossed that I'll finally be able to fit in to a bikini top! More... READ MORE

First of all let me say I am 5'7" & 270 Lbs, so I am considered obese. So about 5 years ago I got a divorce, had a hysterectomy & quit smoking all within about six months of each other. Since then I have put on about 75 pounds. Around May I started serious treatment for hormone replacement... READ MORE

Just had my surgery scheduled. Never been so excited in all my life. Never thought I could get insurance coverage. Hoping to be a B. Wondering about time off after, is 2 weeks enough? What is pre-op like for BR? How did people deal with work. I have been vague with some people and they usually... READ MORE

Thanks to every contributor on this site. You have all helped towards this point & a surgery date of August 24. As I live in Australia I have used Australian pricing and bra sizing. I will include a pic of one of my bra tags so the size will translate to all. I cannot wait to 1) Ditch... READ MORE

I have always had larger breasts - during my teenage years they just kept growing. Even when I lost weight the boobs themselves stayed the same. I used to be a 12F and am now a 10F. I just want them to go. Give me small boobs please! After thinking about having a breast reduction surgery for the... READ MORE

I've always had larger breasts. I was a D cup by the time I was 13, and it only got worse from there! I've been a 36 F/G (depending on the bra) since my 20s. In my early 30s, I started having back trouble. I never really connected it to my breasts - it was all in my lower back, and I was told I... READ MORE
