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 ›

Today is the day.! I am only hours away from going to sign in and have the reduction. Insurance has yet to confirm payment, I have to sign a waiver being held reliable. Anyone else? What were the outcome ? I am not going to even try to play tough, I am scared. I have slept only 2 hours and in... READ MORE

Since I was a teenager I have had large sized boobs to which everyone believes to be 'proportionate to my body size'. I am a tall woman so my weight seems evenly dispersed, but my chest is way too large. Because of its size (44 JJ UK) my boobs sag a lot, and this sagging causes chest pains when... READ MORE

So many reasons to get this done for myself. I need it so badly. Been waiting a week mow for my GYN to call me with a referral to a surgeon.

Now that I'm under the one-month mark until surgery, I thought I'd stop being a lurker on RS and make my own post! Like so many women here, I have also struggled with a large (okay, huge) chest size, specifically in relation to my small frame. I have always been so, so self conscious of my body... READ MORE

I am less than away from my surgery date! It's set for 8:30AM on May 10th. ::Aaagghhhhhhhh!!:: I am mostly anxious about whether or not this will actually help my back, as my boobs aren't terribly huge to begin with-- But they have been at least a D since the 6th grade and I have tried...

I have been following a lot of wonderful ladies and their journey to get their reductions. I figured it is time to share my story as well. This will probably be long, so if you finish reading to the end, thank you in advance. ;) I was in the 5th grade when my mom said we are going to have to... READ MORE

Welp, I'm posting for the first time because I am finally approved by OHIP for this surgery. I had my consult back in November and was expecting to have the procedure done before the summer but it took longer than that. I'm terrified of the pain post op, but reading the reviews on here has given... READ MORE

After years of having back pain and trouble fitting into 'cute tops' and being self conscious. I finally decided to do something about it! And it has been the best decision I have ever made. I'm still healing, but I think I will end up with an average C cup, and they look fantastic. I had my... READ MORE

Hey everyone!! So I've been on this site a lot lately, trying to decide if a breast reduction is right for me. All the reviews and before & after pictures have been sooo helpful! I've struggled finding pictures of women who have the same petite frame as myself. I'm 5ft and 120 lbs with 32DDD... 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

So admittedly I was an overweight teenager, therefore by age 16 I was double F cup, by early 20's they grew to HH cup and I hated them! After losing 2 stone and none of it came off my chest, I decided to do what I had been thinking about for 10 years, went to my GP about a reduction. Anyone from... READ MORE

I was wearing a DDD/G bra, I had very bad back pain and indentions on my shoulders from my bra straps. My consultation was 6-14-16. Dr Whiteman explained everything about the procedure, and from there I knew that's what I wanted. I was approved by my insurance on 7-11-16. I then scheduled my... READ MORE

44 JJ looking to decrease. I'm overweight, but it is difficult to exercise with supersize breasts in the way. Insurance approved surgery with documentation of back pain, physical therapy not working, deep groves in shoulders, etc. I'm excited and scared author same time. I've been quite large... READ 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

Well today was the day I had been hoping for I received the call from the surgery center that my ins. Was approved!!! I had to get a mammogram for my ins. Other then that it was a pretty easy process minus waiting the 6 weeks to hear if I was approved. I have the surgery in 2 weeks from today. I... READ MORE

Tomorrow is the big day! I have always been heavy on top, however since a recent car accident, I have been in severe pain. Being larger chested also makes you appear larger and I'm tired of being self conscious. It affects my day to day life and I believe hinders my career path! I am ready for... READ MORE
