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 ›

"We consider that size abnormal". I clearly remember the sales clerk saying those words to a 15 year old me when I asked for a 32DD. I don't know what my size is truly. I've always been embarrassed about my breasts. I developed early and wasn't mentally or emotionally prepared to be looked at... READ MORE

I am a 46yo, 5'3" 130lb mom of 1. I am a 30GG. My whole life I have been a 28DDD or 28F. After 40 I gained a few lbs. I am hoping to be reduced to a large B. I play tennis and am pretty active so I am trying to lose 15 lbs before the surgery. My husband is against my BR. But he's letting... READ MORE

My surgery is about 3 weeks away. I decided to take some pre-BR pictures so I can compare later. You'll see in my pictures I wear a sports bra over my regular bra because I never feel I have enough support. Plus I try to compress them to my chest so they don't stick out so far from my body, and... READ MORE

Every morning I wake up with stiff hips, a searing pain through my mid-back, tight shoulders...that's if I'm lucky. Mostly I wake up several times throughout the night from the pain and inability to sleep through it. I have an expensive mattress, a wonderful pillow and raised hips (if that... READ MORE

I underwent breast reduction with lipo and a tummy tuck October 2012. I did this due to chronic pain and weight loss. I felt that I needed to post my experience as I researched this Dr extensively prior to my consultation and well waiting for my surgery. I was unable to locate any negative... READ 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 game...so 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 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

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...
