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.

Getting rid of my boobstacles!!! After years of neck and back pain I am having a reduction. It all went quickly, from the referral to getting an ok from the insurance company to surgery it's been 2 weeks. Very excited and a bit scared but good scared. So 2 more sleeps and then it's time. No... READ MORE

One week to go! I have been on this site for over a year and it's finally my turn! I have read, laughed, and commented and just love all your stories!! I started looking at doctors last year and just was so unsure if I wanted to do this (I am afraid of looking off without my chest) and did not... 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 had been thinking about having a breast reduction for over 10 years but had always worried about the process due to watching too many TV programmes ! Mr Marando was recommended to me by my hairdresser and I am so glad he was as he has made the process so bearable and in my eyes the results are... READ MORE

Hi everyone. Long time lurker here. Ok so my story is the same as everyone's regarding having huge breasts since very young etc etc. The only difference being that 15 years ago I had liposuction only on my breasts and it removed 900mls in total and took me from a H to a E. At the time I was in... READ MORE

Like all of the ladies on here I have waited years to finally get to this point - I want to be feminine something that i just can't do with these boobies. If I'm not careful clothes can make me feel like Hattie Jacques - not what I want. For as long as I can remember I have had a large full... READ MORE

I wasn't going to write my story here, but I like the thought of keeping track of my timeline and the amazing support I have seen on all the reviews I have read! Hoping to get the same support! I'm so nervous!! I am 23 years old with a 2 year old AND 3 year old. I have had a bigger chest size... READ MORE

I've been looking forward to this since forever! I've been holding on for a while trying to lose weight from 191lbs to 155lbs in hopes that my boobs will disappear. Unfortunately not, they're still around. My band size reduces and boobs stay the same (ddd). The pain has become so unbearable that... READ MORE

I have always been large busted and always hated them. I have all the usual culprits; large dents in my shoulders, which i HATE, back, shoulder, neck ache, hunchback from the weight and all the other problems that come with the largeness! I have just over 2 weeks to go and this has been a... READ MORE

I have finally decided to get a breast reduction, after living with discomfort of heavy breasts for years. I had my consultation in March, received my approval about 3 weeks ago and set up a surgery date for June 1st. I have always been quite small, and weight changes have never effected the... READ MORE

A return customer! What brought me back to Dr. Aycock was a breast reduction. I've always been chesty and a photo that was taken of me in the summer of 2014, combined with the neck/back issues I'd been having for years, pushed me over the edge. I couldn't take it anymore and decided to consult... READ MORE

Since I found this site a week ago I've been glued to my computer screen, I'm sure many of you can relate to that! :) I'll skip all the long details but as many others, mine developed suddenly and quite some time after my school friends, as I remember being jealous of their tiny bras when I had...

So far I have only talked to my family doctor. I'm hoping to find a surgeon soon and get a referral so I can start the process of approval from OHIP. I have been going through pain in my upper back, shoulders and breasts for quite some time now. I have always been self conscience of my breasts,... READ MORE

Hello reader and potential or previous plastic surgery client!! :) Today is my Presurgical Testing day. I've been left and right on this site looking around gaining insight and am thoroughly convinced this is the correct course of action. I thought breasts were supposed to stop growing at a...

I always asked myself of I could do that surgery. I was always aware of my breast as I am a "small" girl (5'3" - 120lbs) with E-Fcups. It was ok to live with it, until I started doing more exercises (yoga and running). When I do yoga my breast is always in the way, when I run it bounce even... READ MORE

Well....... What can I say. I have suffered with all the normal symptoms associated with big boobies, back ache, shoulder pain, head aches constantly re-adjusting trying to get comfortable. Got to a time in my life where I wanted to do something for me. OMG recovery can differ every day. I have... READ MORE

Like many of you I've been wanting to have a breast reduction since college. But I was never brave enough to do it. By now my breasts are really on the way of normal existence. My posture is crap, not only from carrying all this extra weight on the front but also from trying to hide my huge... READ MORE

I had 36D before the kids and my breasts have never been perky. After the 1st pregnancy my breasts became 36DDD/E and I was hoping they would go back after im done nursing but they stayed the same... Then after my second pregnancy my size became 36F and after nursing to 36G/H. At some point I... READ MORE

Age: 20 Height: 174cm / 5'8 Weight; 88kg / 194lb After getting boobs extremely early they'd always been part of who I was. When I was twelve at my primary school formal I was already an Australian 12C (pictured below). At twenty I was measured as a 12J or 10K and had to buy speciality bras... READ MORE

I've been embarrassed about my chest size for as long as I can remember. All of the women on both sides of my family are very large in the chest area, and I can remember praying when I was in 3rd grade that I would never be that big. My mom caught me mid-prayer, and she informed me that I was... READ MORE
