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'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 have be heavy chested since elementary. I have been ashamed & always tried to hide my large breast. I am a size 7/8 & it makes me look bigger at the top & small at the bottom.

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

Like a lot of people here, I too have been reading reviews on this site for a while now. I'm now almost to the point of being able to review my own experience of having a breast reduction surgery.

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

Getting a breast reduction has been... READ MORE
