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 ›

Well I have gone ahead and scheduled my surgery. Scared and excited. Been unhappy with my body for over 20 years and now finally I am going to do something about it both for my confidence and as a comfort thing. After having twins my tummy never recovered, I can't wait for the day I feel good... READ MORE

I am two days away from my surgery date and am getting extremely nervous. I have my pre op tomorrow ( the day before my surgery) and I'm hoping it's enough time for me to get any last minute thing so may need for recovery. I am off from work ( desk job) starting tomorrow for two weeks. Have a... READ MORE

For as long as I can remember, I was called " the girl with the big boobs". I remember back in 6th grade, my friends would tell me how I had nothing compared to them. By 8th grade, a while after my first cycle, I remember being a C cup. Not sure when the jump happened but by the time I graduated... READ MORE

I started developing in grade school. Girls would call me " stuffer" until one day I finally showed them! I am currently a DDD/E, and would like to be a B or C. I've been reading reviews for months. I went to the PS on May 29th, and I received a phone call on Thursday letting me know that I... READ MORE

Very happy with the results of my breast reduction done on 21st May by Dr Mark Doyle at John Flynn Hospital Gold Coast Australia. Its amazing how much better my shoulders and neck felt straight away post op. My story like others, my breasts grew overnight practically when I was about 14yrs.... READ MORE

Looking back trying to remember when I first thought about having a breast reduction I cannot pinpoint it exactly, certainly the thought has been popping up regularly for the last 10 years, but somehow I never thought I'd be able to have it done. In Norway where I live you can get the operation... READ MORE

Back pain head aches being experienced. No rash. Wanted a lift with the lollipop reduction. Expressed several times I did NOT want small breast at consult and before procedure. My wishes were not granted and I've spent more money on implants. I've had issues finding a dr when mentioning his name... READ MORE

I've been taking the steps needed to have my breast reduction covered by insurance. I've gone to the chiropractor for several years, but started going more frequently in December of 2014. I saw my general practice doctor in January '15, and made monthly appointments with her, making sure to note... READ MORE

I have been struggling for years with back and neck pain. I started having debilitating migraines that they can't seem to find a cause for last year. I went to see a holistic doctor who is not a big advocate for unnecessary surgeries, and he recommended that I get a breast reduction... READ MORE

Time has finally come to say good bye to my big boobies. Surgery is April 15th. I've always had big boobs from being 12yr and have suffered all the usual problems that come with them, from the aches and pains to buying clothes that fit, and of course they just don't look nice anymore. And I... READ MORE

Hello everyone! First and foremost I just want to say how much I LOVE this site!! It has helped me be more confident in my decision to get a breast reduction. Okay, so I am 23 years old, 145lbs, athletic build, small frame with 32HHH/36F breast!!! Like most of you I've always had big breast... READ MORE

I was having neck and back pain. I exercise regularly and my shoulders would exhaust before my legs. I wore camisole tank tops under my clothes every day for extra support. They were heavy, uncomfortable, and made me look "bigger" than I actually was. This surgery was the BEST decision I... 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

I will be making a consult with a couple plastic surgeons pretty soon. thank you!! READ MORE

Hey Ladies, I've been lurking on this site for some time. Not being creepy just didn't think I had anything to add to the conversation pre-surgery. All of your stories were really helpful and I was so so excited when insurance approved me. Like many of you I seemed to just wake up one morning... READ MORE

I loved my breasts. They were voluptuous and beautiful and nourished two children for 5 years of my life as well as provided marital pleasure. Motivation #1: Although I fantasized for almost 40 years about having smaller breasts, I wasn't willing to do anything about it. (Minimizer bras just... READ MORE
