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 had dreamt of getting a breast reduction since I was thirteen (I just turned eighteen). Since I hit puberty, my bust never stopped growing. I have never been a "big" person; I've always been a size small, but I couldn't wear the clothes I wanted to wear/could wear because my bust was too large... READ MORE

Well, my whole life I have been the girl with big boobs. I developed way before other girls and even remember wearing a training bra in elementary school. Well, I have finally had enough of the back pain, the shoulder indents, and the stares I get from people walking down the street. I have... READ MORE

I got approved for a breast reduction today through Tricare at the Hospital on post. I was so nervous about this but he seems great. It's awhile away and in December, right before Christmas which bothers me but I took the date. I keep thinking I want to loose 10-15 pounds, I wonder if I do will... 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

I have had large breasts since I gave birth to my daughter 8 years ago. After breastfeeding they never returned to their original state.

I've always had large breasts and the resulting pain, but never thought I would get a breast reduction. Even though I was overweight, when I was at my thinnest, I still had very overly large breasts (DD). Then, when I had a workplace injury that hurt my neck and left shoulder/arm, I tried all...

I have dealt with large breast pretty much all my life. Starting out as a B cup in the 3rd grade, I had a feeling I would always be big chested, but not this much. In high school I started noticing that it was limiting my ability to succeed in sports and even feel comfortable among my classmates... READ MORE

Have had big breast since 6th grade they just grew overnight I guess... anyway I didn't really think anything of my breast being big until people made comments about them in middle school.. since then people would always joke about them leaving me depressed. Getting a breast reduction has been... READ MORE

Hello everyone. I feel it is my responsibly to write this review, and help others to make such important decision, even after 55, to go thru an elective surgery, just for mare reason, as to look better. If it was not for this site I don't think I would have done it! So, this is my small... READ MORE

I am 36 years old. 5 1/2 dr weighing 158 lbs wearing a 34 DDD/E bra. I'm in need of a reduction because of the upper back/neck pain. I'm looking forward to this journey! I had a consul with Dr. Harkins today and he feels strongly about BCBS accepting me for the BR. Keeping my fingers crossed! READ MORE

I've been wanting a breast reduction for a very long time. I've had extreme pain since I was about 11 years old. I don't even remember when I wear a training bra, its like I went from having no breasts to having big breast. I have back pain shoulder pain, neck pain, my bra strap digs in my... READ MORE

I'm 38 years old, live a very active lifestyle, and my 34DDD breasts were uncomfortable, unattractive and causing me neck and back pain. After very extensive research, and numerous consultations, I decided to fly to Beirut, Lebanon, to have Dr. Ziad El Asmar perform the surgery. He was very... READ MORE

Just had my consultation today with my the PS - he was great, he had an amazing personality and made me get over my anxiety about showing him my much too large breasts that not even my husband sees! I was in and out in no time and a perfect candidate for the reduction. He said I would go from a... READ MORE

I had my first consultation yesterday with Dr. Earl Stephenson, Jr. He was very informative about the procedure and was almost as excited for me as I was! I'm anxious to see if my BCBS insurance will cover the surgery. They said it's going to take a month to see if it's going to be accepted and... READ MORE

Well I wanted to wait to write a review until I was approved for a reduction, and after calling my insurance I was!! I think it took about three weeks from initial consult to approval from BCBS of Michigan. But anyways... About me; I am 35, no kids, non smoker/very lite... READ MORE
