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 finding a hard way to begin this since it's such a common story around here. I have had a large chest since I was in middle school. I have been wanting to get a reduction for the past 5-6 years but was scared my insurance would deny me so I never looked into the process. A few years ago my... READ MORE

I'm 24, 130 lbs and 32 DD/DDD. I've thought about great reduction for years, but haven't really pursued it. I'm getting more and more fed up and self conscious, so I think it might be time to do something! I live in Canada, so I'm hoping to get it covered by insurance. I don't even really know...

After I had my first child I went from a 34D to a 34DDD and fitting into clothes just became a lot harder. I'm 5'7" 150 lbs and I was buying clothes larger than necessary because my breasts just became gaudy and indecent. I also was referred to a physical therapist for numbness in my hands and...
