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 came home from work to find an acceptance letter in the mail from my insurance company! I never thought they would approve it. I've always been bigger. I'm super tall, big hips, and yes...big boobs. Growing up it always bothered me that I couldn't wear tank tops and bathing suits like my... READ MORE

So far I have had a consultation with several plastic surgeons. My favorite by far is Dr. Christine Nygaard in Bellevue, WA.

I lived with a large chest since puberty. In my thirties, my chest exploded and by the time I was 37 years of age, I was shoving my breasts into bras that did not fit and spending $60 - $120 twice a year. Then I was unable to wear dresses and shirts my size. I became self conscious and started... READ MORE

After years of back/neck pain leading to severe head aches I decided to look into having a breast reduction. My insurance, luckily, covered the entire procedure. I had a little under 4Ibs removed from my chest and I couldn't be happier with my decision to have the surgery. I'd love to talk and... READ MORE

I started developing breast right around the 4th grade, very early when I reached to about the 10th grade they became heavy and I'm a short girl 5'1 so they really just take over my body. When I was 16 I went to Dr.Weiser but I was too young and hadn't finished developing in and he told me to... READ MORE

I waited TOO LONG to have this done. I went from a GG cup to a D cup and I feel like my old self again. Within 2 days of having the surgery, my neck and shoulder pain had disappeared. I kept thinking I shouldn't spend the money on myself, but now realize I can be a better wife, employee and mom... READ MORE

Since I found this site a week ago I've been glued to my computer screen, I'm sure many of you can relate to that! :) I'll skip all the long details but as many others, mine developed suddenly and quite some time after my school friends, as I remember being jealous of their tiny bras when I had...

I'm a 40 year old school teacher, mother of two. My whole life I was uncomfortable with the size of my breast. This was the third time in 8 years I went for a consultation hoping my insurance will cover this so needed procedure. My prayers were finally answered and in two weeks I received a... READ MORE

I was approved! I went to the Doctors office on Thursday and approved Monday. Very unexpected. I'm scheduled for December, and looking forward to my surgery. I can't wait for the relief. As of now, the estimate is 375 out the left and 250 out the right breast. I will update as things fall into... READ MORE

I had my much needed reduction and lift on 9/14. It was the best decision I ever made. My surgeon did a fantastic job. Recovery wasn't bad. I took a week off of work and just really slept. Unfortunately about a week ago in my sleep I pulled one of the scabs. It wasn't bad, at first, but... READ MORE

My history with large breasts go back many years. I started wearing a bra when I was 9 and by the time I was in high school I was a 36 DD. I was into sports and hiking. I bound them when I was playing softball because I was teased that I would give myself a bloody nose when I ran. I have had... READ MORE
