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 ›

Hello, my name is Vanessa, I'm 31 years old and I'm having my long awaited breast reduction in 2 days. I'm starting to panic a bit, of course, so I decided to start a journal here to try to calm me down. I have found a lot of comfort, courage and tips from the reviews in here that it encouraged...

Firstly I want to start by saying Dr Ellen's Office, Staff and everything is absolutely amazing. They are really there to work with you and meet your goals. Every phone call was polite and informative. During my consultation it was really great. Meghan the practice manager was funny and she gave... 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

I had always had large and "odd" shaped breasts, the grew quickly. Even after children, breast feeding & weightloss they wouldnt get smaller. I knew from a young age I wasnt pleased with not only the size but the shape and after years of headaches, shoulder and back pain and interference... READ MORE

I had my consultation with my surgeon about a month ago. It went well and she said I was a great candidate (as they probably say to everyone). I am excited but I am getting nervous that something will come up (insurance denial or something) and I won't get it done. My pre-op appointment is... READ MORE

I did it. What did I wait for? I've wanted one for 25 years, and finally did Breast Reduction, after so much back pain. I'm 47 years old, 5 feet tall, weigh 112, and was a 36 DDD. I am now a B/C, not really sure yet. They are lovely! First two days post op were good, but day three I had a... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I am 53, have lost 110 lbs in the past 2 years, and my breasts didn't really shrink all that much with the weight loss. I knew they probably wouldn't. I have been busty since puberty, more so after childbirth. My pre surgery bra size was 36J. Looking at them now, I am expecting a... READ MORE

Good morning. ive been following these stories for some time now, and Im ready to share mines. Since I can remember, I've always had pretty large breast. In middle school I had the biggest boobs and they were so uncomfortable to run with! Even with a sports bra I had to hold them down while... READ MORE

Holy cow! It's happening! My original surgery date was November 28, but they just moved me up to October 5! So now I have less than 2 weeks to prepare for surgery when I was planning on having 2 months. I'm beyond excited but nervous that I'm not prepared. The one appointment I've had with my... READ MORE

I seem to have the same story as most others for wanting a reduction. I have had very large heavy breasts for so long that I am finally going to do something about it! I am currently a 38H-I and 224lbs (down 12lbs this month!) My consultation was in March with surgery scheduled for Nov 30th (by... READ MORE

Breast reduction was something I had never really considered as an option until speaking to a friend about it last spring. I am quite active -- bicyclist and musher -- and frankly, my 38DDs get in the way. I saw a PS last month and was delighted to learn my insurance will cover the procedure. Of... READ MORE

I am a 26 year old female beginning my process of seeking a much needed breast reduction. My breast are huge and the pain it cause I can no longer endure. So far I have had my first consultation, been approved with a second opinion and have done physical therapy to see if that would help...Wrong... READ MORE

My consultation so far has gone really well. My surgery is scheduled to happen tomorrow morning, I am praying and hopeful that I would be set free from these boob traps. Getting this procedure done in Nigeria is quite scary, pray for me. I had planned to travel to America for the breast... READ MORE

Thanks to all who are on this journey with me. Your posts have inspired me to blog my experience. I too developed early and continued well into adulthood. After years of wanting to be free of the pain and discomfort, I was finally approved for BR. Surgery scheduled for 10/14. My PS and staff... READ MORE

I have had large breasts since I was a young girl...my mother called me "Dolly." Women of my age and older could associate the reference. My OB-GYN has been documenting for years the symptoms I have been experiencing with pain, shoulder grooving, and skin integrity issues. I am so tired of... READ MORE
