So everyone who has had a breast reduction this question is for u:) I just had my surgery about a month ago and I love the way they look and the surgeon was great, but the pain is unbearable. Dr. Said everything is ok and the shooting pains are normal but I'm so miserable and always hurting and in pain!!! I hate it and sometimes I don't even want to wake up cauz I know I'm going to hurt.

I am 5'2" and was a 32DDD, and they really hung low for someone my age. I am about 110lbs and have been on the thinner side for my entire life. It was hard to find many clothes to fit me and my back and shoulders hurt. I had wanted to have this done for most of my adult life but was kind of scared to have it done. I am from ny and I live in Florida. I found Dr. Ress through a friend who had... more
Wow - so where do I start. This has been so much more for me then a Breast Reduction it has been part of my journey to find myself and feel as amazing on the outside as I do on the inside.
I have always had big breasts,in 6th grade, I was already a C cup. In addition to large breasts, I battled with my weight in a family where my parents and siblings were so skinny. I was always the funny... more
This past month has been a whirlwind! I've seen four PS in 5 weeks and this morning, the morning after my final consultation, I'm feeling overwhelmed. I am 24 years old and healthy. I have always had large breasts and even started wearing a bra in the third grade. I am looking to go down to a C cup.
Here's the cause of my confusion: I am torn between two highly certified PS.
I knew... more
I have mixed felling about my procedure. Sometimes I am happy and sometimes scared cause you don't really know what they will look like and how your healing will be but one thing I do know is that I am going to leave it in God's hands. My husband was very supportive of my decision but he said he really didn't mine the size of my breast.
4 days post op and yesterday the Dr took my pain pump... more
For six years I suffer from back pain, indention on my shoulders and feeling to heavy to run and exercise. Now I feel good. My back hurts no more. I thank Dr. Farber for making my surgery a real success.
Dr. Scott Farber made my surgery experience easy, enjoyable, and satifying. From the first visit to my post-operative follow up visit, Dr. Farber proved compationate, understanding,... more
I've had large breasts since I was 10. Over the last few years, the back, neck & shoulder pain has increased. I love running, yoga & swimming & it's not always fun or comfortable to do them with breasts in your face :) This last year I gained a lot of weight (30+ lbs) & of course, my breasts grew too (34DDD-E),which on a 5'0" frame is a lot! Over the past several months, I've... more
I lost a lot of weight but now I'm left with a body I absolutely hate! Thank God I lost weight but now it's time to have a sexy body. I'm starting with a breast reduction bc my boobs aren't proportioned to the rest of my body. Plus, my neck and back have been hurting since I lost weight. I had a consult with Dr. Lombardo in Jupiter, FL but I wanted a second a opinion from Dr. Lickstein in West... more
Have only considered it for about a year! I didn't realize how low my boobs hung until I started looking at my friends new twins. (Both had augmentations but their new twins are so beautiful) My two girlfriends new boobs are called Tia and Dia mine r gonna be Mia! My bras, bathing suit tops, dresses and button down shirts never fit. I exploded out of all my tops my whole life. It never... more
I've always had Big breast since I was in Elementary. I stood out from the rest of the girls. The older I got the Bigger they got. Here I was in the 5th grade with a Big C cup Bra. I felt like Maybe they would stop getting Bigger at some point. That didn't happen. Here I am at the age of 24 and I wear a 42 H Bra. My Height is 5'3 and I feel like My breast are pulling on my back.... more
My experience with this type of surgery .... done twice without the success I have seen on the internet. My breasts looked like they had not been reduced enough to make a difference. I was a DD before and perhaps a D afterward. . The second time I had the procedure,I had it done in office(why it was less expensive..same DR. tho)I was most hopeful..but same..(little or no)results...altho I... more
I've had very large breasts since i was around 15. I have a very small frame,so the pain in my back,shoulders and neck has become a big issue for me over the years. When i was younger it was really frustrating not to be able to wear dresses and go running and play sports and simply like yourself because of my breasts.
I've been wanting a reductuion since i remember having pains,but... more
