I'm so tired of hearing that! I'm 40, have 2 children, and I'm ready- I think. I'm currently wearing an uncomfortable 40DD. I'm 5'5 and 140lbs but look and feel a lot bigger. Growing up I matured like the other girls my age. I had nice 34B, then I had kids and a 36C. Then they just kept growing and growing. Everytime I would see family and friends they always said oh my god, how big are... more
I finally got approved from my insurance! The wait is over! I'm 25 years old and currently a 38DD and want to go down to a full C. I've always had a big chest and having this dream come true the feeling is indescribable!
My surgeon made me feel so comfortable and I can say I trust her with this big step! We went over everything on my visit! I've been calling her office non stop and just her... more
After thinking about having a BR for two years, I finally made the decision to go for in January. I am 5'3" (was 5'4" until the weight of my breasts made me hunch over) and around 185 lbs. I had the shoulder groves and rashes underneath seemingly forever, but developing nerve problems in my neck, back and arms was what tipped me over. Exercise was extremely painful, as was sitting or standing... more
From the moment I walked into Dr. Mahoney's office, I instantly felt more comfortable. The office staff is incredibly sweet and greets you as if you are an old friend. They are completely accommodating, attentive, and sweet. Ellen herself is a truly genuine, caring person. She listened to me intently and answered every question I could think of. She discussed every aspect of the procedure with... more

On Monday August 12, 2013, I underwent a breast reduction. I am 19 years old (20 in September) 5’3’’ and about 160 pounds. My insurance completely covered the surgery I went from being around a DDD to a large C/small D! My doctor took off 2 pounds total. I could not be happier! For the longest time I have been thinking of having one, and it finally happened for me. I cannot believe that... more
I had a reduction at 18. I'm 5'0 was 110 pounds (now approx 114). I went from
A 34 E to a 34 c. I am now 35 and have had two kids... Also cancer (twice). I have had an extremely difficult time nursing my children, which has lead to much sadness, regret and self doubt. I was able to nurse for 2 weeks before I was forced to supplement, which made for difficult situations. I feel that because I... more
I developed my breasts between 8th and 9th grade, from bee stings to a C cup! I received a lot of unwanted attention from boys, and girls alike. I was always "the girl with the big boobs". I have never, ever been comfortable in my own skin. I tried to get insurance to cover it when I was 19, but they wouldn't. So I was forced to deal with what I have. It's so crazy, because I've carried around... more

Not a good deal, I am currently dealing with 3 bacterial infections in the right breast and the Plastic surgeon I used keeps saying its not infected. I had a surgical revision on 3/3/11 and he did not remove the sac of infection. I am going to a wound care center, and fear i will lose my right breast completely. I had been to the ER in January when i spiked a fever over 101.3, they said the... more
