I developed really early. I hated having such big breasts in school. The attention I got from it was embarrassing, and the comments people made were irritating no matter how playful they meant it. I first wanted a breast reduction in my early twenties but had no idea about how to go about starting the process, and I didn't want to even admit to anyone that I wanted one so I just kept it to... more
I have been a size D cup since I was a young girl, often getting lots of unwanted attention because of the size of my breasts. I often thought about what it would be like to be smaller, but never really researched it until I had a bit of a breast cancer scare last year. My breasts have been a source of emotional and physical (weight on my neck and shoulders) pain for years so, it was time to... more
As I approached fifty, my breasts grew larger and larger...not the sexy firm breasts I always wanted when I was younger, but pendulous heavy breasts that, no matter how fit I tried to be, made me look matronly and older. I was surprised at the recovery -- Dr. Barone uses alot of long-acting local anesthetic and the discomfort was much less than I expected. It's important to take time to... more

I was 46 last year and asked my primary doctor who she would go to: Dr... more
Okay, like everyone else I've been lurking for a bit and scaring my self to death with the pictures of the stitched and scars. Sorry ladies, you all look nice but that first day...whew.

HOWEVER,... more
Life and work as a flight attendant had become harder and uncomfortable due to large breasts. I sought a breast reduction/lift. Office staff was so kind and knowledgable. Dr. M was informative and prepared me thoroughly for surgery.I have no more migraines,no more trouble sleeping through the night and no more neck/shoulder/back pain. Best decision ever and best MD ever. more
So here I am on my journey towards my breast reduction. I have already had a consultation with a surgeon he took pics sent them in and I have been approved by my insurance(Tricare), but I'm really uncomfortable with the surgeon I have seen. The pictures he had shown me were horrendous! All of the women nipples had lost their color. I know this is a risk but he couldn't show me any... more
