A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, which usually results in the nipple and areola being shifted to a higher position. If the areola has been stretched due to the size of the breast, it may also be reduced. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

I am considering this BR. I would like to reduce the pain that is all over my body. I would like to run instead of walk. I would like find a bra that will fit from Victoria secrets or Kohls not a specialty store. I want cloths that are the right size. I believe Dr. Pollock will make it happen.... READ MORE

Hello, my name is Vanessa, I'm 31 years old and I'm having my long awaited breast reduction in 2 days. I'm starting to panic a bit, of course, so I decided to start a journal here to try to calm me down. I have found a lot of comfort, courage and tips from the reviews in here that it encouraged...

I wore a A cup in grade 6, B in 7, C in 8, D in 10, DD in 11 then I ran out of bras in my small town. I'm now a 34-I as in eye!!! I have 2 kids and I breastfed both for a total of nearly 5 years straight. I finally booked my reduction for this November, 2016. I'm not scared at all -just... READ MORE

Surgery is in under two weeks. I'm excited, thrilled and a bit anxious. I had a D cup in 6th grade, and it just got worse as I hit puberty. I'm now 25 with a 38L, and I've been self conscious about it my whole life. My only worry is that they'll still be too big after the surgery. I'm hoping for... READ MORE

I have been contemplating a BR for many years, but don't like pain, so couldn't make the decision to have the surgery. After dealing with health issues with my hubby (5 surgeries in a little over a year), I figured if he could do it, so could I. I proceeded to do some research and had a... READ MORE

My beautiful full C cups went up a size with each child. They are very dense and heavy tissue. When I was Prego, each boob was bigger than my head. I have a tiny rib cage and was at a over an H while Prego and even bigger once the milk came in. I can remember the day my arm started bothering me... READ MORE

It's only been 5 days, but I'm already thrilled with the results. Today was my first postop appt with my plastic... READ MORE

I wasn't sure if I wanted to share this journey but I have sought so much advice reading other reviews here I thought it only fair to tell my story. I'm booked for my BR on Tuesday the 20th September and to say I'm nervous is an understatement! I've talked about BR for years and now I'm about to... READ MORE

I 've thought about a BR at different times over the years but never checked it out. WHY??? I developed very early, like 4th or 5th grade. In Jr High some of the boys nicknamed me, Jungle Jugs. I'm heavier now than I want or should be, but even at a normal body weight, I'm still a 36DDD. ... READ MORE

Like most of you, I grew up with large breasts. They started at the ripe age of 11 and by 15, I was in D cup bras. I was professionally measured right when I decided to go on a weight-loss plan about 1.5 years ago and was shocked to find out I was a 36G (I'd been wearing 36DD bras). Wearing bras... READ MORE

Firstly I want to start by saying Dr Ellen's Office, Staff and everything is absolutely amazing. They are really there to work with you and meet your goals. Every phone call was polite and informative. During my consultation it was really great. Meghan the practice manager was funny and she gave... READ MORE

I went to see Dr. Dash today and was very pleased. She took time to explain the anchor procedure, how much time would be needed for the surgery, itself 3 hours, and how she doesnt use drains, and why she doesn't. She took measurements and photos. She remarked I have very heavy breast(I know,... READ MORE

I am a 25 y/o hairstylist. I have had large breasts since 7th grade when I came back to school over break and had developed into a large D. From there I kept developing and graduated high school at an F. In the past couple years with a little weight gain, I have topped out at a 38 H. I'm a... READ MORE

My breast reduction is next Thursday (9/15), and I'm so excited! I have constant back pain which a year of physical and massage therapy hasn't resolved. I'm really hoping this will make a difference. I've have big boobs since I was very young, and they have always been such a nuisance. They... READ MORE

I'm a 31 year old mother of 2, 5'11 and 200 lbs. I have been considering a BR for the last 5 years and have finally mustered the courage to go through with it. I have been dealing with chronic back, neck, shoulder pain and headaches that have recently become unbearable. My job requires me to be... READ MORE

So I have just booked to have my initial consult with a plastic surgeon! I feel like I am rushing in to this a little but if I am moving interstate soon and would like to do it before I go. I got my referral yesterday and seeing the surgeon for my initial consult on Monday - eep!!!! I don't... READ MORE

So, I'm 4 days away from my surgery (9/29/2016)!!!. I'm 29, no kids, 5'2, and about 230lbs.....I currently wear a 42H. I don't know if I want to go to a D or DD. If anyone that's around my size would post before and after pics, as well as if you had any fluctuation of size (if any) once you were... READ MORE

At the moment, I haven't really done much. I'm a vet, so I just got into the VA system, and spoke to my primary care. She agreed right off the bat that a breast reduction is an option, and told me she'd put in a referral to the plastic surgeon. Right now, I'm waiting for him/her to call me,... READ MORE
