I am 19 years old, 5'2 and 186 lbs. I am still in the beginning stages of weighing out my options. Ideally, I would like to lose weight before I make my final decision (I am currently on a weight loss journey) Although I do think that losing some weight may make a small difference in my breast size, I don't think it will be enough for me to feel comfortable. As of right now, it is already... more
After spending my entire life with breasts that were incredibly disproportionate to the rest of my body, I finally decided to go through with a reduction this year. My initial consultation I found to be extremely overwhelming and basically an overload of information thrown at me in the span of 7 minutes (take note I am under the age of 25, and have never had any form of plastic surgery before)... more
On Dec 31/2014 I had a breast reduction by Dr. VanVliet. There are not enough words to explain the truly amazing this experience was.

When I went into my consultation Dr VanVliet took the time to answer all my question and make sure I was completely at easy going into my surgery. Surgery day... more
After talking to my doctor about the benefits of a breast reduction for a decrease in back pain she referred me to Dr. Andrade. She spoke highly of Dr. Andrade and I trust my doctor.

Dr. Andrade was understanding of my concerns, professional and answered all... more

My breasts have always been too large for my frame causing many physical and social problems since about the age of 12....hoping for some relief. My consultation with Dr. Lista: No waiting, he was very friendly but direct and to the point. He seemed to know what he was talking about which put me at ease so I didn't feel the need to ask very many questions (plus I have been stalking this... more
Surgery just under a month from now. It's being covered by OHIP, so thankfully I'm not paying out of pocket for it. Feeling a mixture of trepidation and excitement at the moment.
My experience is much similar to everyone's I've been reading about on here- I developed early and found myself in a D cup by the age of 13 (although now I suspect I would likely have needed an E as I was wearing a... more

I've been having back pain since grade 8 due to my humongous boobs that has ruined my posture and not to mention my confidence. I cant remember the last time that I've ever felt good or "sexy" even from having big boobs. All the girls at work always rave about how much they wish the had my breast but if only they knew that having a hunch back isn't pretty, lol (I'm working on it) I told my... more

I am a 34DDD and I have been wanting this for so long! I am so uncomfortable in my own skin and truly sick of the pain that I feel!!!!! Someone please help more
After years of procrastinating, I finally investigated the procedure and am thrilled that I did. All of my questions were answered. The procedure was completed soon after my consultation and approval by OHIP. My recovery was quick, there is minimal scarring and the size is appropriate for my body size. I regret waiting so long. more
I know this sounds vain but Im honestly so afraid of what they're going to look like when they're done! They're nice right now but too large and cause me pain.
I'm also nervous about the recovery. Will I be in excruciating pain or is it more so soreness and uncomfortable? Will I be able to drive a couple days later? I know everyone's different but I'd much rather hear it from the ladies that... more
I wanted to decrease my back discomfort by reducing the size and weight of my breasts. The tummy tuck also aided in improved back support by removing excess skin and tightening fascia/muscles over my enlarged liver. The results of the surgery were more than I could have anticipated. My back feels so much better and I feel more vital. Clothes fit better and I am not constantly hurting from... more
So far I have only talked to my family doctor. I'm hoping to find a surgeon soon and get a referral so I can start the process of approval from OHIP. I have been going through pain in my upper back, shoulders and breasts for quite some time now. I have always been self conscience of my breasts, bras are expensive and finding clothes that fit is a hassle that I try and avoid until necessary.... more
Every morning I wake up with stiff hips, a searing pain through my mid-back, tight shoulders...that's if I'm lucky. Mostly I wake up several times throughout the night from the pain and inability to sleep through it. I have an expensive mattress, a wonderful pillow and raised hips (if that cushion doesn't slip from my knees). What else do I have? Well, big boobs.
Yep, to all those people who... more
I have always struggled with the size of my breasts. The constant comments, the extreme back pain, negative feelings and low self-esteem had hit its limits. I ran into an old friend from high-school who had been struggling with similar concerns, when she suggested I go see Dr.VanVliet. Needless to say, it has been the best decision I have ever made, and I am beyond excited with the results and... more
