My OB/GYN recommended a consultation with Dr. Lepore for my persistent back ache and deteriorating posture. My subsequent appointments with Dr. Lepore were fast and his staff was professional and effective throughout the process. My breast reduction was in December, 2013 . Dr. Lepore was very caring and had excellent "bedside manners". He listened well, answered all my questions and... more
I have had large breasts my entire life. Boys use to tease me in high school. My mom always use to say that I got all the breast material from her and my sister, they have small breasts.
I have had three children, two breast fed.
I was approved and going to have the procedure in 09 but I chickened out. I have had them for so long and women pay so much for breasts like mine, but now,... more
I have known since I was ~14 years old and a 32C that I would someday need a breast reduction, and here we are! At 5'8" and 125 lbs I am carrying a full size 34DD/34DDD set of breasts, and ready for some relief! My shoulders ache daily from my bra straps, my neck/back worry me that I will be a hunchback old lady from having my center of gravity shifting my posture inward/over. I try to... more
My entire life I've had large breast. A little description of myself: I'm 5'4, 185lbs. with 36 HH breast. These things have been such a pain in the a**. I have my surgery scheduled tomorrow morning and I'm starting to get extremely nervous. I've read lots of reviews and tried to get an idea of how recovery will be, but I'm hoping everything goes smoothly. If any one has any suggestions on how... more
I was always large busted, but I was slim most of my life so my breasts were large but a reasonable size. In the last few years I gained a lot of weight and took hormones when I was menopausal. My breasts became extremely large and extremely uncomfortable. I'm a designer and I love clothes, but I could no longer wear the clothes I liked and I felt self-conscious. My back, neck and shoulder... more
When women say that breastfeeding ruined their breasts, I get it. And I don't. Not really, because my boobs have needed a reduction since my 20s - long before I breastfed my two children. My breasts pretty much stayed the same through pregnancy and breastfeeding. Though the fibrous fat & breast tissue under my armpit had definitely gotten worse with time. I remember that my grandmother had... more
I've had large breasts and
Considered breast reduction since high school. I have permanent indentations on my shoulders. Have a hard time finding bras. Im either spilling out the top or falling out the bottom. I get a massage every 2 weeks for neck and shoulder pain and have been treated for migraines for years. My insurance authorized the surgery with little or no questions. Now I have mixed... more
So today I had my surgery. It went good. I acted very non-nonchalant because I was afraid that I wouldn't make it. Breasts Reduction Surgery is not something that is very common in my family even though almost all the women in my mothers side of the family suffer from larger painful breasts. Since I was 26 with no children I think I was a little frown upon for why I decided to go through with... more
I have always had large breasts... but not good ones. They were heavy, and droopy. My areolas were huge, and my nipples always pointed due south. When I fit them into a bra, they would always spill out, even though in theory, I was wearing the "correct" sized bra. I likened my boobs to marbles in pantyhose; too much volume at the bottom, not much at the top. When carefully stuffed into a... more
When I was 13 years old I went from flat chested to a D cup in less than six months. Some of the growth was so rapid that I could actually see stretch marks forming day by day. It only got worse - by the time I was 18 I was well out of any bra size that regular stores sell and in fact I hadn't even bothered to find or wear bras in years. They were droopy too of course, so I wore baggy... more
I’m a 41 year-old woman and I had a breast reduction (BR) on August 7, 2014.
My Back Story
Like most people considering a BR, I had tremendous back pain and my life as a younger athlete was a distant, cloudy memory. Neck and shoulder pain along with the deep groves of uncomfortable bras made me feel as if I were ruled by my breasts. Clothes are hard to find that really fit properly... more
I am just about 6 months out from having a breast reduction, lift and removal via liposuction of accessory breast tissue under my arms. I'm 30 years old and had wanted this surgery since I was in my teens. I met with a couple of other doctors, but felt Dr. Lepore really understood what I wanted.
My main concerns were reducing my size while still having my chest look perky, full and... more
If I could give Joseph Togba less than one star I would. He performed a breast reduction on me in 1996 knowing I was taking prednesone. What resulted was I had absolutely NO SKIN on my breasts for almost six months. I was in extreme pain, understandable since I had NO SKIN. I remember like it was yesterday when I went for my first follow-up visit, the look on his face when he took off my... more
I'm 60, married, two adult "kids." 5'4" 36DDD. I was thin my whole life but still had big boobs. I was always self-concsious and hated the size but figured that's just the way it is. Since menopause, I've put on 20 lbs and I'm now bigger than ever. I've been reading everyone's stories for a while now. I actually got the nerve to see a PS and was surprised that my insurance will pay for a... more
The progress has been excellent, my recovery has been pretty quick, more than what l was expecting. No inflammations and I've had little to no pain, my chest has still been numbed. The implants of the nipples have healed pretty fast. I never got any infections. I believe that if anyone Is in the need for this type of surgery, Dr Beck is the indicated one. more
After many years of contemplating I've finally decided to do this again. I was never happy with my reduction 14 years ago. I was not reduced at all (though I was lifted but never went down in bra size) and was left with a very ugly scar due to not healing properly. I am now scheduled for a repeat reduction for April 2. I'm currently a 34DDD and want to be a 34B/C. I love my new PS and... more
My chest seemed to grow overnight sometime at the beginning of high school and I had no idea how to deal with them. I stuffed them into badly fitting bras which had no support. At one point, I had only one bra that fit - a 36D bra that worked if I wore a sports bra over it, since my boobs would fall out the bottom otherwise. I blamed my body and my boobs for being weird. I thought that I... more
I wanted to have the breast reduction done for a long time... since they were oversize, heavy, lower my self-esteem and it's been very hard for me to choose my outfit for any social events...
After a long research and recommendations from friends of mine, I chose Dr Beck.
I'm glad that I did...
First the staff, they are friendly and professionally, especially Jasmine, she walked us through... more
3 Weeks Pre-op:
I've been reading this message board nonstop ever since my approval for breast reduction surgery on September 5, 2013. It's a day I'll never forget! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm 21 years old. I am 4'11". I weigh about 115 lbs. I wear a 32 DDD/F, whatever you want to call it. I have wanted breast reduction surgery for as long as I can remember. I remember... more
