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 ›

I am 4'11" tall and 95 lbs.

Even so, some of ME is bulging from the top and the bottom of my bra. I am in my... READ MORE

I have suffered from neck, shoulder, and back pain for as long as I can remember. This is my last option for relief. I am very nervous but excited at the same time.

36 Yr Old, 3 Kids, Married, 34H to Hopeful 34C/D Breast Reduction - Colorado Springs, CO

I went to see Dr. Dash today and was very pleased. She took time to explain the anchor procedure, how much time would be needed for the surgery, itself 3 hours, and how she doesnt use drains, and why she doesn't. She took measurements and photos. She remarked I have very heavy breast(I know,... READ MORE

Breast Reduction After 2 Pregnancies and Breastfeeding - Newton, MA

Having this reduction was the BEST decision I have ever made for myself. I wanted one for years, but it was important to me that I have my children first.

Going from a 34F to a 34B - Cape Girardeau, MO

I have always had large breasts - and always wanted to have them reduced - even back in my 20's when I was only a DD. No matter what weight I was - down to 115 and up to 140, I always was big. The only change would be the size of my back - I'd go down to a 32 - which made it even more difficult... READ MORE

23 Y.o, 32F Breast Reduction - Anchorage, AK

I'm just posting some photos of what my breasts look like currently. I am still on the fence about the surgery. I weighed the pros and cons and the pros seem to outweigh the cons. I like the areola being reduced. But I still worry that I won't like the result, that it won't be worth going under... READ MORE
