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 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'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 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 spent my teens and 20's in a B-cup, my 30's in a C-cup, my 40's as a 34D. My weight has stayed fairly consistent. I weigh probably 5-10 pounds more than I did in college, but my weight has redistributed itself as happens with many women. Within a year after menopause, I had piles of shirts and... READ MORE

This site has been an amazing resource all the way from my initial consultation through what is now my fourth week post op. I'm hoping my review can help someone who may be considering this surgery.

So far I have had a consultation with several plastic surgeons. My favorite by far is Dr. Christine Nygaard in Bellevue, WA. My sister referred me to her having had breast augmentation and lipo performed by Dr. Nygaard some years back with excellent results. I must say I am extremely impressed... READ MORE

Hello All. I have been reading posts for approximately one month or so; since my insurance approved my surgery. I definitely have benefited from the transparency and did not want my surgery to pass without sharing my testimonial in an effort to help someone else. I am a melting pot of emotions... READ MORE

I had my consultation with Dr. White a couple weeks ago and I am starting to get really nervous. I have wanted a BR for almost a decade and I am so afraid insurance won't cover it. I usually wear a 34E/F and I want to go down to a B-cup. Dr.White told me during the consultation that my right... 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 am 31 years old nurse that is so ready for the surgery. I'm just shy of a month until the day. I have 4 kids, married, and work full time.

I had big breasts starting in middle school. When I was a Freshman in high school, I was a size D cup. With every child I had, and the birth control I was on after, the more weight I gained, the bigger my breasts became. I couldn't breast feed my younger two children due to the size. My... READ MORE
