Breast Reduction

WORTH IT RATING 2,169 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 ›

Hi! My surgery is tomorrow and I wanted to get this documented because the stories others have shared on this site have really helped me with this decision. Like many others, I have wanted a BR, and lift post-children, for many, many years. Things really came together for this to happen now... READ MORE

I had back pain for the past 5 yrs. I was a 34 d prior to my first child , after my second child my cup size was an I cup. Dr. Stephenson was the third PS that I consulted with. I enjoyed his eagerness to answer my questions and I never felt rushed. Even post op he was always available... READ MORE

I have wanted this done for as long as I can remember. I cannot believe it is almost 24 hours away! I am so excited but obviously nervous. I am going from a 36 j/k cup to hopefully a c or large d cup. I will try to post after pictures and do an update after surgery. Pre op appt is early tomorrow... READ MORE

My name is Miranda and I've had boobs since 2nd grade. I can remember my last time not wearing a bra in public. Being a d cup by fifth grade and being a tomboy trying to play soccer without a bra(because I would forget) and it hurting as i ran, plus the stares. Only reason I put off this... READ MORE

I went to my first consultation with my soon to be surgeon.....well he said that he has no doubt that the insurance will cover my surgery being that I am a 44 HH.....He told me the worse news ever...that Ill have to have a free nipple graft, and that I will loose all of my sensation in my...

I have read about a million other reviews on here before making my decision to do this and I am 100% ready. I suppose I should share some things about myself! I am 19 and, like most other people that have gotten this procedure, I developed very early in the breast area. I was in 4th grade I had... READ MORE

I'm 5'1 and very petite, weighing in at 130 pounds but extremely top heavy. I have been chesty since about the 7th grade and quickly became the girl with the biggest boobs in high school. Working in a salon has made my back issues go from bad to worse, and as my tailbone started to snap and the... READ MORE

Every morning I wake up with stiff hips, a searing pain through my mid-back, tight shoulders...that's if I'm lucky. Mostly I wake up several times throughout the night from the pain and inability to sleep through it. I have an expensive mattress, a wonderful pillow and raised hips (if that... READ MORE

My surgery is about 3 weeks away. I decided to take some pre-BR pictures so I can compare later. You'll see in my pictures I wear a sports bra over my regular bra because I never feel I have enough support. Plus I try to compress them to my chest so they don't stick out so far from my body, and... READ MORE

My breast reduction surgery is in a couple of weeks however I've been in need of this surgery for quite some time.

At my lower weight I was around a DDD, or at least I think. I don't remember ever being anything lower than a D. I'm not sure if it's because I've been overweight the majority of my adult life, or I just have naturally large breast. I'm part British and it's common for large breast in England.... READ MORE
