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. The areola might also be reduced if it had been stretched out due to the size of the breast. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

Hello all! My surgery date is fast approaching and I thought this day would never come. It was a battle trying to get insurance to cover it, even though I have an extensive medical history with back pain and neck issues, also chronic headaches. 4 months later they gave in and I'm covered! My... READ MORE

Ever since I was 16 years old, it seemed like my breast grew over night! At first, they were bearable, but then it got to the point I HAD to wear TWO bras just to get good support! Since they did grow over night, they were really saggy and had tons of stretch marks. At 16 years old, I was a 32D!... READ MORE

It's time! I can't take the pain/discomfort any longer. I've entertained the idea of a breast reduction for twenty years. I put it off, making hopeful excuses that they would go away if I lost weight, or I should wait until after I have children, or insurance probably won't pay because I'm... READ MORE

Just a little about me. I'm a 48 year old mum of two, kids now 20 and 23. I'm a nursery teacher and constantly on my feet and my aching back at then end of the day is wearing me down. I've had big boobs ever since I started to develop and although would have. Loved to have a br in my 20's it... READ MORE

I had a breast reduction back in October 2015. It turned out okay I am happy. Just one thing. On both sides of my breasts under my arms where the scars are the scars healed in a point as to where it sticks out on both sides. What are your thoughts and has this happened to anyone else? Thank you.... READ MORE

Today I had my last appointment with my doctor prior to my surgery on Friday! I have to say, he and his staff have been SO accommodating of me. I'll back up and tell my story. Since my teenage years my breasts have always been slightly on the bigger size but 2.5 years ago my OBGYN put me on... READ MORE

Well the time has finally come! This Wednesday I am scheduled to have my breast reduction surgery and I'm nervous and anxious but also excited. I've always had large breasts and I've suffered from serious back, neck, and shoulder pain for years, as well as terrible headaches, which after... READ MORE

I'm 5'2" and my weight fluctuates from 145 to 160 depending of the season. I don't have children. I've worn a C cup or greater since I was 12. My bra size was a 30 to 32F earlier last year. It is now 32G. Since I took courage from reading the posts on here, I decided to contribute in the hope... READ MORE

I went through with breast reduction surgery simply because I suffered from neck, upper and lower back pain. After my baby was born in 2015, my breast became larger and the pain worsened. I'm now a 34C and I am pleased with my results. My main concern is the healing and dehisce. I'm only 2 weeks... READ MORE

I didn't have big breasts until about age 20. I went through high school with a perky C cup. Then at age 20 seemingly overnight my breast were a DD. Flash to now (age 27) and I'm in a F cup! Today, 07-26-16, starts my journey towards a reduction. I can no longer handle the pain in my neck,... READ MORE

I've been an under ground rs member for some time now????.Now that I've finally made the decision to depart from my sag bags,I want to share the moments with you. I've seen 2 docs Scot Glasberg & Craig Baldenhofer both scheduled surgery for July 18 my insurance has the last say. I will keep... READ MORE

I started this journey a month ago. I had a consultation with a ps who said that I would be too small if I took out the 316 grams mandated by my insurance. He suggested writing my insurance and asking to take out 220 grams to make me a c cup. He wrote a letter to my insurance, but they declined... READ MORE

Well I am on this path again. In 2013 I meet with a surgeon who I felt really put me down, he convinced me that I would just be happy with a lift and brushed off the fact that I wanted smaller breast. So I meet with Dr Andrade after that and went ahead with a lift. I am really really happy with... READ MORE

Warning! Extremely long text post. (Sorry everyone!) I remember the moment when it came to my attention that I needed to start wearing bras. I was in the fourth grade, and I was trying on shirts at a clothing store with my mother, and I came out of the dressing room to show her the shirt I... READ MORE

Where do I begin.... I've longed for a breast reduction since the age of 18 but I've always had breast issues as a kid. I started wearing training bras in the 3rd grade and the tender age of 9. As the years passed, I grew taller, wider and so did the "girls". By the time I reached middle school,... READ MORE

It was really important to get my breast reduced and lifted. I got tired of not being able to wear matching bras and panties because the full coverage/ supportive bra never came with panties to match. Also i always want to wear backless shirts and dresses. I started watching Disla's work and was... READ MORE

Had my first appointment with the surgeon last month and, while I'm still quite nervous about going ahead with the reduction, I'm definitely ready to downsize in the boob department. I'm currently a 32GG and can't wait to be able to wear whatever I want instead of clothes that either make my... READ MORE

The "girls" have been large since they 1st came in. I can't remember them ever being small. I have 2 kids and they got larger every time. Past 8 years I have had severe rib pain, neck pain, gnarly back pain, and nasty headaches. I'm not a lazy person, I miss going on hikes and doing even the... READ MORE

After many years of living with pain caused by the 36DDD girls, I finally got my insurance's approval to go through with the breast reduction. I couldn't have been more excited to finally be given the chance to do it. My breasts started developing when I was in about 5th grade. They were pretty... READ MORE

Well here goes. I am a mum of one, 27 years old and have finally had my breast reduction after 5 years of trying. Since the tender age of 11 I have always been big busted. I tried so long to get this procedure on the NHS, then I fell pregant two years ago so was out on hold for obvious reasons... READ MORE
