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.

Now's the time, and the serious journey has begun! I have been desperately in need of a breast reduction for the past 10 years. I had a hysterectomy done in 2005, and ever since then, my breasts have grown and grown. I went from a C to a DDD in that time. My back and shoulders are in constant... READ MORE

My breasts are 36K and I just want them to be normal. I'm in constant pain and am so sick of people telling me I have huge boobs (Really? I had no idea!), not being able to wear clothes, my boobs knocking things over, etc. I have my consultation today and I'm so nervous because I want this so... READ MORE

I have always been big chested as long as I can remember. After having my son in 2013, I started to have lots of back pain. I found a primary care physician and started going to him about my situation. I started nursing school when my son was only 4 months. The pain started getting worse and... READ MORE

In some ways my story is not much different than the rest of us big breasted ladies. I wore a bra at a young age and went straight from a flat chest to a Bcup overnight and just kept growing from there. In high school I was already a 36DD and then after having children a 38DDD. A few years ago I... READ MORE

Dr. Webb is an amazing doctor. He made me feel comfortable and secure. If the rating scale was 1-10, I would give him a 10. Because of God he is that good. Never stop using your gifts. You are the man. My cup size was a G, so Doctor Webb went in and reduce my cup size to an C cup. He... READ MORE
