I was so excited when I found out that I could get this surgery covered by my medical assistance and at 100% covered. So this was even more motivation for me to get the surgery. I had been to my pc twice got approval and was scheduled within a month. Surgery was done 4/28/15! I am 20days post op now and I must say it went well after surgery I was not in a lot of pain slept on the... more
After months of neck and back pain, I was referred to Dr.Schreiber. He was so professional and knowledgable about the procedure. I was completely satisfied with his treatment. The personal phone call after surgery was amazing and showed he cared. I am pain free and so happy with the results!! Love the office!!!! more
I’ve really struggled with writing this. There is so much good information on this site that I wasn’t sure my story would offer any fresh insights. But, due to recent events, I think it may-or at the least selfishly offer me some comfort and support.
And now the stats: I am a 44 year-old woman, 5ft 5in, 180lbs (blek), and approx. 38DDD/E
Unlike many of you, I really did not have large... more
I recently had a breast reduction in March of 2014. Most people may shop around to get several consultations before deciding on which surgeon they choose for a procedure. Not me! I decided on allowing Dr. Schreiber to perform my surgery after only one consultation! Dr Schreiber made me feel very comfortable. He answered all questions I asked and never made me second guess my decision on.a... more
Ok....so I have been a stalker since I became a member in 2014. I want to thank all you ladies who have shared your stories, without your reviews I would have never got the courage to get my BR!
My story is the same as many. Had big boobs since middle school. I got it from both sides of the family. So it was no way I was going to avoid them. Went from being flat chested to C cup. From C cup... more
I've always been top-heavy. And every year my breasts would grow heavier and heavier. In the last 18 months or so, I've been in such AGONY from back pain, neck pain (spasms) and shoulder pain. I was prescribed muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory meds, and given a referral to undergo physical therapy... all provided nothing more than temporary relief of an even bigger problem. So I made... more
Last year I had a consultation with Dr slezak she was very kind and started to tell me about the surgery and the way she would operate she said she would do the lolipop incision, she submitted my information to my insurance company(united health care)....weeks later I received a letter of denial for the surgery because it wasn't mentioned that I had rashes under my breast which I did mention... more
I'm having a Breast Reduction in Two weeks. Can anyone walk me through the step by step day by day for the first few weeks post op Breast Reduction? I need specific daily details as far as dressings especially. When to start using scar treatments and etc. Thank you! This is greatly appreciated! Peace.

I had anticipated getting a breast reduction for years to eliminate my back and neck pain but never found a doctor I was comfortable with until I met Dr. Banks. She came highly recommended by my PCP as well as my breast doctor. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and beyond kind. She's very direct with what she plans to do and speaks plainly and not over your head. She anticipated my... more
I am very nervous about my upcoming surgery. I have so many questions and doubts. I've been reading this site like a maniac. My insurance (Blue Cross) authorized it with no issue. My Dr and I talked about going to a size C. But since I'm 5'3 230 lbs I have about 100 lbs to lose, we settled at a D cup hoping that I'll end up a B/C cup. I'm worried about my breast deflating. We can cross that... more
Apparently it really is! I just had a consultation yesterday and decided on a ps to perform a much needed breast reduction. They took all of the measurements and pictures and said they would submit it to my insurance for consideration. The doctor's office said it would be about 3-6 weeks before I heard anything. I received a phone call THIS MORNING to say I was approved! Only 26 hours later!... more
I can't believe I'm having a reduction in 4 days! I've been looking through this site for a while, but finally decided to share my own story. At my slimmest, 5'4" and 125lbs, I was a large C. After one kid, a very stressful work environment, and having a bit of a love affair with Nutella ;), I'm now 173 lbs. Wish I could lose more weight, but as I've been approved by insurance, I don't want to... more
I have had large breast since about 7th grade. I was always self concious about them and now I am finally getting them reduced. I currently have one child and wear a size 34HH. This is very large for me considering I am only 5'4 and weidh about 150. My original doctor would not recommend me and said I should try physical therapy. This happened last year around Feb or March. Well this year I... more

Wow! This is my 3rd attempt at writing this. Like most of you I have had large breast all of my life. I was in a C cup while in elementary school, DD by the time I got pregnant @ 17 and a F @ 19 after 2nd son. My boobs just continued to grow. Over the yrs I gained and lost weight but boobs never got smaller. So over the last 20 yrs I have had at least 5 PS consults but got scared and... more

I am considering a Breast Reduction in June. I am currently a 42DDD and they are starting to wear me down. I literally went to 4 different stores to find the right size bra for me. I eventually gave up and started to order them online. I started getting scars on my shoulders from my bra cutting into my skin. At this point, my Physician thought it was time for a reduction. I put it off for too... more
