My insurance company just recently approved my breast reduction surgery for August 17th. I'm so excited but nervous. Always have had a large chest. Was a DD before kids, now a 40G (though I know my right is significantly bigger than my left). I'm not getting the "lift" just the reduction that the insurance covers. I hope they'll turn out decent looking. They are very long and heavy. My plastic... more
Hello, I was able to get a consultation with Dr Darrow who I found on this site and I just got word that my insurance approved my surgery. Praise God!
My surgery is on August 7th but my back pain is the worst it's ever been, it's even giving me headaches and I haven't been able to exercise at all for over a week now.
Please does anyone have any suggestions to help alleviate my back pain while... more
My experience with Dr. Davidson and his staff was wonderful! I did a lot of research before choosing Dr. Davidson. I know I made the best choice possible! It was important that his credentials and competence met high standards, and they were impeccable. I found your bedside manner and professionalism to be of the utmost highest of quality and truly felt comfortable and safe. I would highly... more
I never knew a breast reduction could make me as happy as it has. I was a saggy 36DD and hated everything about my comber some breasts. I thought about the surgery for years, but finally decided to do it. Scary? Yes. Doubts the day before and morning of? Almost didn't do it! But wow am I happy I did. Recovery has been a breeze. Little to no pain at all. I don't have drains, nor do I have any... more
For as long as I can remember, i've been a busty gal. It's almost like in the elementary school (yes, elementary school) my breasts appeared overnight, and even in the third grade I was known as "the girl with big boobs". By fifth grade, I was a DD cup. I am now a nineteen year old high school graduate, and I am a 34F. Being 5'2" and 140 pounds, my body has never really been able to support... more
My name is sara I'm 21 years old and i have always had big breasts. The past year has been horrible, i was wearing bras meant for old ladies and my back and shoulders were in constant pain. I was a 40H. finally ins approved me for a breast reduction. Within a month of being approved i had my surgery. I had my surgery yesterday morning and got home from the hospital this morning. my pain so far... more
I am 20 years old, 5'3", 160lbs. I started developing larger breasts in middle school. By 8th grade I was a 36D, and by senior year I was 36DD. Two years later, I currently wear a 36DDD. I am interested in the surgery because I, like many, have struggled a lot growing up with large breasts. My breasts cause my back and shoulders to hurt, some days the pain in my back is so intolerable that no... more
I'm completely new to this site but find myself looking through everyone's reviews for hours daily. I have been contemplating a breast reduction for a few years now and still have not gotten the courage to go through with it. Currently, I am a 32 DDD and wish to be a small C cup maybe even a B cup. The one thing that makes me hesitant about going through and making a consultation with surgeons... more
I'm 19 years old and I'm a very small girl, I believe I'm only 4'11" or 5 foot. At the moment I'm probably around 130 lbs but normally I'm 115 lbs because I moved recently so I gained weight due to stress, not eating right and mostly since I haven't been working. I honestly couldn't say what bra size I am but around 6th or 7th grade I'd say I was a large C cup, now I'm probably way past a DD... more
I have wanted... No, I have needed a BR for many years. I developed in my teens and although not unbearable I was always considered the girl with the large breasts. Fast forward.... I had my first child at age 20. I gained a lot of weight. I am about 5'5" and weighed about 120 before pregnancy and the day I gave birth I weighed in at 199 lbs!!! It took me a long time lose that weight but... more
I never thought of writing a review before but this website has helped me so much with pre op anxiety I figured I should contribute.
I first tried to get preappeoval for a reduction 7 years ago at age 22. The dr said they weren't large enough and didn't even attempt to submit to insurance. I wish I had gone for a second opinion!
Now in my late 20's I figured id try again. My primary care... more
Hey girls my name is Keshauna and I am 20 years old from Lowell, MA. My bra size last time I checked 2 months ago I was a 38DDD/E and it just seems like these things just get bigger and heavier. Growing up I was always the girl who had boobs before all the other girls and me being a Tom boy I hated but at the same time kinda liked them. But as the years went on they just kept growing and... more
Backstory -> First Consultation
I've had a sizeable rack since I was about 11 years old. I'm 23 now. After learning how to properly fit a bra 3-4 years ago, losing some weight (that I later gained back, but hey, it happens), and getting the chance to go to a chiropractor for a while, most of my back problems receded, but they still required constant management. I had to make sure to sleep a... more
I have read many reviews on this site and it was very helpful in making my decision. I read about all the possible things that could go wrong. I figured that way at least I would know it happens and be prepared if it does.
I saw 96 percent said it was worth it and so many saying how wonderful they feel.
I had mine and at my 3 week visit Dead tissue was removed at the T junction and left a... more
NOTE: You will notice some photoshopping on the top of my left breast, this is because I have a very recognizable tattoo. It is the only thing that will be edited.
So to start off...
I feel very strange putting pictures of my boobs on the internet, but realself was crucial to me making the decision, so I wanted to give back!
I am in my late 20s and measure at a 34DD, although my most... more
I'm officially 17 Dats away from my surgery. I'm worried and I'm wondering what items I need to buy to help the recovery process. My surgeon was very nice, he had never heard of a size K bra though... Lol He said he may not be bake to get me to a C but maybe a ad because of the risk of losing the nipple. He's a great surgeon so I trust him. I'm hoping they look good when they are healed I'm... more
For a number of years I have been thinking about a breast reduction. I am a 34H. For years I wore a 44DD because that is what I could find in stores that fit me (not really, but it was the best that I could find). When my college roommate went to a bra fitting at Nordstrom's and told me that she was a 36D I thought there is no way that I am a 44DD as I am thinner than she is so I decided to... more
I'm just going to say that out right i am scared. I have never went under the knife before. I am about a 38 DD but I might be bigger because my bras don't fit properly. I a scheduled for the 31st of December so I guess I will welcome the year with new breast. I was also told that i would be the only surgery for that day so i guess that is nice too. i am hoping to go down to a full C i just... more
Thanks for Dr.Slama that perform my breast reduction and lift surgery, it was very hard in pain every day with my upper back and neck and presure every single day...the first time I met Dr.Slama I was very nervous but I knew I was in good hands by searching his experience on his job, and everything went well...best doctor ever I recommend him more
My BR surgery was done on August 26, happy with the results. Before surgery I was a 44DDD, Dr said I will be a 42C when all is healed and swelling is gone. I absolutely love my PS, her and her staff are awesome! I've only had to call twice since surgery just for a few questions. I stayed over nite at hospital after surgery, and thank God PS removed drains before I went home, that was my... more
