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 just turned 40 and figured it was time I deserved a little bit of a break from the pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. I've always been heavy chested. I, like many others on this site, have been dealing with the awkward discomfort of larger than usual breast for as long as I can remember;... READ MORE

Form the time I can remember ever since I hit puberty my breast kept growing bigger and bigger. I'm so happy the time has come when a weight will be lifted off my shoulders. Going down from a 44 G/HH to D cup. Very nervous. But I know I'm in great hands. I'll be posing before and after pics.... READ MORE

I am having my reduction on the 25th of August. Have already had my Pre-Op. Getting a little nervous now and excited! I am a 34H and am hoping to make it to a 34C. Dr says my surgery will be 3 to 3 1/2 hrs long. Can't wait for this to happen! The days can't pass fast enough. Have wanted this... READ MORE

Like most other woman who have had breast reduction surgery, I'm thrilled! I've been suffering with neck, back and shoulder pain for years, not to mention my self-esteem. I was always compensating for my heavy breasts. I felt like I was alway hunching over. Maybe I was being naive, but I wasn't... READ MORE

Just over a week to go and I am soooo excited. I have had neck and shoulder pain since my breasts really got large when I was 9 or 10. Now I am 48 years old and finally doing this as I am past the point of having children. Hoping that my health insurance (Medicare) covers it. The doctor... READ MORE

I will be having the scarless breast reduction in a couple of weeks. I am truly excited and nervous at the same time. I am currently a 36F and was hoping to be a C but my surgeon said impossible. He said he could probably get me to a D cup. I guess it beats a F. Any thoughts out there in the... READ MORE

Once I turned 11 my boobs grew and didn't stop. I went from nothing to a D cup in no time. Because of the teasing of certain family members I have always felt a deep shame and embarrassment over my large boobs. I have always done things to try and diminish them, to no avail. They are the thing... READ MORE

So I'm a little different from some of the brave ladies on here, I didn't spend most of my life with huge boobies. Growing up, I loved my breasts....they weren't too big or too small, they were proportioned with my body size. So fast forward, like most people with age came weight gain and once I... READ MORE

Hello Ladies, I've been watching many of your stories for a long time and you guys have really motivated me to follow through with my surgery. My breast has always made me feel very uncomfortable and unhappy. My doctor was the first guy to ever see me without a shirt and bra( most embarrassing... READ MORE

Well, finally after 3 years of jumping through hoops, I have my procedure tomorrow (pending cancellations (eek!) ). I have issues with my spine, ribs and shoulders, which have been impeded by the weight of my boobs. It will also be a novelty to have my face and not my chest looked at when being... READ MORE

I spent my teens and 20's in a B-cup, my 30's in a C-cup, my 40's as a 34D. My weight has stayed fairly consistent. I weigh probably 5-10 pounds more than I did in college, but my weight has redistributed itself as happens with many women. Within a year after menopause, I had piles of shirts and... READ MORE

I've been looking forward to this since forever! I've been holding on for a while trying to lose weight from 191lbs to 155lbs in hopes that my boobs will disappear. Unfortunately not, they're still around. My band size reduces and boobs stay the same (ddd). The pain has become so unbearable that... READ MORE

I was in a horrific car accident where all my ribs were broken on the left side of my body. My breast was extremely heavy after the accident my cup size was a 38G-H. My breast hung down to my waist. I was always in constant pain because I was too top heavy. So I decided to do the procedure & im... READ MORE
