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 5'2, 34DD & 127lbs. I'm tired of back pains and getting depressed every time I attempt at shopping for things for the upper body. I'm just super annoyed with my boobs and want them gone. Most of them at least. I do everything in a bra, my boobs are almost always tender. I only take a bra off... READ 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...

46 year old with large dense breast 36 ddd at 5'3, wearing a size 6 pants, but larger top due to broad shoulders and huge breast cups. Like the right, not crazy about the left...too boxy, heavy above nipple, nipple flat higher than the right. Hope this all shifts and rounds out with healing. ... READ MORE

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...

July 24 is the day. What am I most looking forward to? The heaviness to be gone, the strain on my neck and upper back, to be rid of the under boob sweat, itching, rashes, gouges on my shoulders. Ready to fit into a button down shirt that isn't two sizes bigger than what the rest of me needs,... READ MORE

So long story short. When I was 18 I had cancer which was treated with chemotherapy and steriods....those steriods made me go from a 32E to a 32G. I believe I'm getting a breast reduction and a lift. I hope to get less back pain, less pain in general and less body embarassment from this... READ MORE

Hello, I had my breast reduction about a week ago & I just wanted to say I LOVE it already. At first I was a bit on the edge about the procedure but my little sister(16) had the procedure and reassured me of how awesome the outcome would be after the pain. So, to sum this up I am happy I decided... READ MORE

I am a 23 year old mother to one sweet 2 year old boy. I sadly started wearing a bra when I was 8 years old and didn't stop growing until I was probably 17. I am currently a 40DDD or 38F (I think...never actually been sized) and very tired of the back and neck pain and difficulty exercising,... READ MORE
