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 ›

Not Small Enough???

Back in 2005 I had a breast lift at the age of 45, after I'd lost about 20 lbs and was left with loose skin, sagging uncomfortable breasts.

35 yrs, 1 child, obese, 42N - not sure which amount to list, billed $50,000 or paid $2,438.39

Like so many others, I went from nothing to giant with puberty. As I recall I went from nothing to at least a C. By middle school I couldn't find anything that actually fit, so I'd buy a much larger band size to get a bigger cup, then take it in to fit at the band. Yay for sewing skills. I... READ MORE
