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 ›

Same story as everyone with development early and poor self esteem. No matter how much weight I would lose...I never went below a DDD/G. I decided it was finally time and I am so thankful I went thru with the reduction:lift! So worth it. If this is something you are considering just jump in... READ MORE

My story is similar to others on here. I've had large breasts since puberty. At 13 years old I was completely flat...a late bloomer. Then over the summer before freshman year I went from a training bra to a C cup. I was 5'3" and only weighed about 100 lbs. Suddenly boys were interested! I'm... 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

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

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 have always had huge boobs since I could remember. In fact they grew so large and so fast that I've had HORRIBLE stretch marks on the tops of them since age 11. I made the decision to have them done recently due to chronic neck & back pain, and so far I feel like a great weight has been... READ MORE

This doctor is so great! Her personality, her help in explaining what was going to happen, and so far the results of my surgery! I'm only into recovery by 11 days, so I don't know what my breasts will look like when I'm finished healing - but as of right now, I think they are what I expected! I... READ MORE

Long story short. At the age off 11 was when it all started. I was teased and called names til the day I graduated high school . As and adukt, if they didn't remember my name or face "you know the one with the big boobs." I've dealt with them for 40 years, back and forth weight loss/gain. No... 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

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

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

Was tired of the headaches, backaches, neck hurting and the strap grooves in my shoulder. The pros of the operation was feeling better and feeling better about myself. I wish I had done it sooner. I am glad that I found Dr . Ortega . She listened to what I wanted and took in considerations... READ MORE

Pending insurance coverage I will have breast reduction surgery on 10-13-16. I never really thought this would be possible but the steps I had to take weren't as hard as I thought they would be. My insurance company needed the following from me: * A referral letter from my PCP * A personal... READ MORE
