I was about 9 or 10 when I started to develop breasts. I completely skipped the training bra thing and went straight to the big leagues.
When I changed schools in sixth grade I was the new girl with boobs. All the boys loved me and therefore every girl hated me.
By the time I graduated from high school I was stuffing them into a C cup in denial of what was I should be wearing. I was 95lbs... more
My motivation was to feel and look like I did before pregnancy. I am also a running so back problem was an issue too. My first consult was amazing. Vanessa was my tech and she gave me all the information right away. One of my favorite parts of my journey was being able to speak with Dr. Pousti's patients. They were helpful and the work was amazing. The healing progress was the most impressive... more
I come from a family of very well endowed women, both my grandmothers (maternal and paternal), my mother, myself and even my teenage daughter. Finally after years of contemplating and severe migraines I called my health insurance to see if I qualified. To my surprise my insurance did cover and they even gave me a list of doctors. After a lot of research (I am a paralegal, it's what i do), I... more
Dr. Pousti and his staff were the BEST! Very professional and caring. From the day 1 consultation to after the surgery they were amazing. I am very pleased with the results and the care I received. I am a Registered Nurse so i know excellent bedside care from a Doctor when I see it. Dr. Pousti is very professional and listened to what I wanted from the shape and the size. Excellent bedside... more
Hello everyone! First and foremost I just want to say how much I LOVE this site!! It has helped me be more confident in my decision to get a breast reduction.
Okay, so I am 23 years old, 145lbs, athletic build, small frame with 32HHH/36F breast!!!
Like most of you I've always had big breast growing up. In high school I was 115lbs and a DD. I was very athletic as well, I did cheer and ran track... more
I never considered getting breast reduction surgery until a couple of my friends had it done. I am 24 years old. My sister approached me one day with the idea. It hit me at that moment how much my breasts had been bothering me. I would have to wear two/three sports bras when working out, had trouble breathing, was never comfortable shopping for clothes, etc. I also realized that I always had... more
I am 5'3" asian female with breast size of 32 DDD.
Since high school, I've always had neck pains and shoulder pains. I used to believe that I had so much hair that it was the weight of my hair weighing down causing these pains. I would often cut my hair below my ears to reduce the weight. I've been to chiropractor, but the relief was only temporarily. It is very abnormal for a small asian... more
Had my reduction last thursday, and I feel amazing! I'm 23 5'8 and weigh about 180 and wore a 38F I know they were bigger then that due to the fact they always were spilling out of my bra but I wore the wrong size anyways :) I'm five days post op and for the most part haven't dealt with any discomfort so far besides a little swelling. Today was the unveiling so that was pretty... more
I am another happy patient of Dr. Pousti. I found Dr. Pousti on this website and after meeting him I was certain he is the doctor I could trust. I had the breast mastopexy with the excision of axillary tissue and did not want implants. I am 58 years old, but my breasts now look like when I was in 20's - perky and very natural which is exactly what I wanted. I am very happy with my results. Dr... more
Dr Smoot was excellent! He was kind and very professional, he took time to answer all my questions and I felt very safe with him, nurse and staff were also kind, I love my new little boobies! I was amazed how fast my body healed and within a month I was hiking up Cowl's mountain again. Best decision! I went from a size F to a size D. more
Ever since I first heard about Breast reductions, it been something I wanted. I have had large breasts since junior high. My size before my reduction was a 34 DDD...way too big for my frame. I've dealt with intense neck, shoulder & back pain for over 5 years. Emotional pain, from being treated like an object, feeling ashamed of my body, I hated the attention my large breasts attracted. I... more
I'm 24 years old. I have had breast reduction twice in my life!! The first one wasn't bad but I wasn't happy with the new size. The second time was by Dr. Pousti and I'm very happy with the result. I got the exact cup size that I wanted. I told him that it's like I had breast implants because they are small and full. more
I have wanted a breast reduction ever since the tenth grade, which was the year my breasts earned a cup size of G (yikes!). My back and shoulders would ache, and headaches would creep up during the day which affected my ability to learn. I played sports, but was very uncomfortable, having to wear a sports bra over my regular bra to have proper support. I currently have terrible posture and am... more
I had a breast reduction done on June 9 and an now about 5 1/2 weeks post-op. I wasn't going to post but I decided that I should give some motivation to those who want to go small and to those who are afraid of post-op complications because everything went great for me. I had 36DDD, two different sized breasts and they were hanging low. They are now 36B, perky, and sitting right where they... more

I am so happy I got this surgery done! I am 21 years old and used to feel like I was 80 years old! I was always in back, shoulder and neck pain and had NO motivation to do anything also no energy whatsoever! I would have headaches for months due to my nerves being so pinched, as well as my hands would go numb from the nerves in my back! The last 4 months I started not being able to breathe at... more
Had my surgery on Monday 3/17/2014
Four days post surgery, minimal pain. First two days everything itched like crazy. I am not to sure how I'm feeling about the drastic physical change. I'm writing this to share what's happening to me, so that others considering this surgery will know what to expect. I find that I can not look at myself in the mirror, because I get discussed by what I see.
I have been wanting this surgery for the past 10 years. I've always had large breasts, and liked it, but the too large areola and heaviness I am done with.
I am with Kaiser and have been referred to their prerequisite two hour class before I have my surgical consult. Attending the class tomorrow, hopefully I can be scheduled soon!
I attended the Kaiser BR class yesterday. We watched a DVD... more
I wanted to have done due to upper back pain every day due to breasts being too heavy after having my son, couldn't lose weight there. Surgery wasn't too painful, recovery is going well & am healing nicely. I am happy with the size, how the scars are healing & looking. It does take time to get back to every day things.
I started off at a full size D and went down to a size B. I ended up... more
I’m 5 weeks post breast reduction surgery with Dr Pousti. I’m extremely pleased with the results to date. I have smaller perkier breasts and no more back and shoulder pain. Someone even commented to me that I have results that look similar to those seen with breast augmentation – much better than I expected! The incisions lines on my breasts are very fine, even at this early stage. ... more
