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 ›

So over the Big Boobs - Martins Ferry, OH

I've had big boobs since I started the 7th grade. Buying a two piece outfit has never been easy. The neck & shoulder pain sucks especially after exercise, not to mention the painful rashes.

Ready for Reduction at 40!

I have an approval for reduction! Been working on that for a year and a half. What made the difference - new insurance company. United Healthcare was a no.

I had my consultation with Dr. Jaffer Azul on November 8th.. His bedside manners are just great. I never one time felt uncomfortable taking my clothes off around him.
