WORTH IT RATING 3,272 reviews over 24 months
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 ›

Since before I can remember, I have been unhappy with the shape and size of my chest. Over the years I did learn to love having a full, natural chest, and there were days I didn’t want to make any changes at all. However, I could never get over their strain on my back, difficulty exercising,... READ MORE

To star this off I had really huge breasts that hurt my back, neck, and shoulders. I often would get headaches. I got approved for insurance and set my date. I had my reduction done on October 2nd, 2015. Being almost 2 weeks post op is going great. Really no pain after the surgery, which was... READ MORE

Hello I am a newbie in the room. I started my Journey to Breast Reduction in January 2014. Insurance denied my first claim and I had to appeal and it was overturned .I went from 38DDD to hopefully small 38C . I did measure around my breast with nothing on them before I was 44 and now im 39... READ MORE

Like many women who have had or are waiting on a breast reduction, I went from having nothing to having a lot in a very short period of time. In 5th grade I was maybe an A, but just one year later in 6th, I jumped up to a D. Now, having graduated High School several months ago, I'm a 38F ( In... READ MORE

I'm 5'4, 43 yo and I'm going from a 36h to a 36c. I am equally parts excited and terrified. My fear comes from the fact that I've always embraced my curves and I identify as a curvy girl. I'm worried that I may look unbalanced after the procedure, but I think the pros outweigh the cons... 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 also still have my drains in, which I know is fairly common. The biggest cons right now would be: -Drains... READ MORE

I grew up with always having a huge chest. I remember getting them in 3rd grade and thought by the time 7th grade happened, it was the "coolest thing ever". I always received a lot of attention from boys and later men. I loved it but than it started turning worse. By the time I was in college, I... READ MORE

Hello, bosom buddies! I’m sharing my story because this forum has helped me (in more ways than one) in my decision to have this surgery. The stats: 55 year old mother of three grown children, 5’3”, 130 pounds give or take a couple of pounds here and there ;). Bra size pre surgery was... READ MORE

I had a lift, reduction and symmetry restoration (Is that a thing? one was lower, larger and "wonkier" than the other). Surgery was done two weeks ago, I could not be happier with the results!
