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
When I was 9 yrs old puberty hit hard and fast. By the 4th grade the older girls were giving me a hard time, jealous that I had boobs and they didn't. As I got older, my breasts got bigger. Gained weight, boobs bigger. Lost weight, boobs...still big. Now I'm to the point of having a constant ache between my shoulder blades, soreness from my bra straps, and a neck and ribcage that are out of... 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
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
After wanting this for 10 yrs, I finally have a date set. I'm 60 yrs young and a 38 G. So tired of all the neck and shoulder pain. Not afraid at all. I had a tummy tuck a few yrs ago and the pain was not bad at all. Husband is super supportive, which really helps. I hope to be a C cup approx. when done. Looking forward to losing the grooves in my shoulders.
So far, I'm not nervous. Probably... more
I had a breast reduction its been 3 months and my PS had a resident working on me with him. The resident did the right breast and it looks horrible. I see him tomorrow in hopes that he will do a revision to make this look right. I can't even wear a bra because it cuts right into the indentation. I was told he was going to do something about the axillary part under my arms but nothing was done... more

I'm one week away from surgery and I still can't convience my boyfriend!
Last week I bought 3 post surgery bras, today I ordered my scar gel, Kelo-Cote. My house is clean, laundry is done, but I just can't seem to get him to agree. He gets very upset just talking about it. I have been considering the reduction for about 5 yrs now. I'm a 36D but I'm only 5 ft. tall and weight 125lbs. My boobs... more
I'm one month from turning 39 and am currently cramming myself into 36FF bras. I've been as high as 36I and I've come to hate them. I try to look at them as sexy...as what "other women" pay thousands of dollars to try to get, or so I've been told by men who think "I'm out of my mind for REDUCING them." But, enough is enough. Other women are NOT paying thousands of dollars to have to buy bras... more
