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. LEARN MORE ›

I have been wanting to get this procedure done for several years due to back, neck, head and arm pain, however I put it off due to other responsibilities. I wish I would not have waited this long! My procedure was on Wednesday morning, I spent one night at the beautiful Serenity Center and am... READ MORE

Time has finally come to say good bye to my big boobies. Surgery is April 15th. I've always had big boobs from being 12yr and have suffered all the usual problems that come with them, from the aches and pains to buying clothes that fit, and of course they just don't look nice anymore. And I... READ MORE

I was a 36J. I started to research surgeons and read on realself about Dr. satankova in Prague. I flew on my own from London to Prague. I am 7 days post- op and already delighted and happy with my new breasts. Dr. Satankova said that once the swelling goes own, I will be a c cup. She is a... READ MORE

I'm very excited that insurance has pre-approved me for my surgery. We were on the fence about whether or not we'd be able to swing it otherwise. Just five weeks out now! I'm nervous and excited can't wait to be able to fit normal clothes - well mostly, since being 4'11" doesn't help my... READ MORE

In some ways my story is not much different than the rest of us big breasted ladies. I wore a bra at a young age and went straight from a flat chest to a Bcup overnight and just kept growing from there. In high school I was already a 36DD and then after having children a 38DDD. A few years ago I... READ MORE

I actually had no intention of documenting this process, but now I am! In a way, i really wanted to pay it forward because this forum has been priceless as I prepare- so here we are!! I'm 32, 154lb, and a 32 GG. I've struggled for as long as i can remember - and now, as I get older- it's... READ MORE

Hate my long saggy Breast I ALWAYS had. I met with two doctors at two different offices Dr Tim Fee & Dr. Erez Sternberg (both Jacksonville FL area). I loved that's Dr. Fee has been doing this for awhile. However, his staff and front office ladies were extremely rude & pretentious. I Went Dr... READ MORE

I had my first consult over 10 yrs ago but my Dr. suggested I wait until after I had children. So, three children and 38 total months of breastfeeding later. I am beyond ready. I had another consult with Dr. Grotting in Birmingham and I am scheduled for surgery on June 17. I have waited for... READ MORE

I've wanted a breast reduction for 25 years and finally the time was right. I met with a few plastic surgeons and knew that Christine Nygaard was the perfect fit for me as soon as I entered her office. The entire staff was very welcoming and immediately put me at ease. I was the last... READ MORE

I've had big boobs since about 5th grade. Going from being made fun of for them to being looked at like a piece of meat has made me so extremely self conscience. Finally got up the courage to talk to a doctor and see if I could get it taken care of. I had multiple tests done for back, neck , and... READ MORE

I couldn't have found a better doctor, I first met Dr. Chang when she was apart of Artisan Plastic Surgery. I loved her work and her caring personality from the first time I met her, but at the time I wasn't ready to have a Breast Reduction, mainly b/c I was scared to have the procedure, but I...

Warning! Extremely long text post. (Sorry everyone!) I remember the moment when it came to my attention that I needed to start wearing bras. I was in the fourth grade, and I was trying on shirts at a clothing store with my mother, and I came out of the dressing room to show her the shirt I... READ MORE

Hi there, I am a mother of 2 boys ready to take my body back. All my life I had larger breasts. Carrying extra weight - back pain, shoulder indents...I know all of you can relate. I had a breast reduction before I got married in 2007. After having 2 boys, my breasts are back to a 36DDD. I'm... READ MORE

I've been kind of planning this for a long while but wasn't ever sure I'd really do it. Now it is actually booked and not very far away I am just at the beginning of starting to feel scared and excited at the same time. I wish it was over already and behind me! I'm starting to make lists of... READ MORE

My history with large breasts go back many years. I started wearing a bra when I was 9 and by the time I was in high school I was a 36 DD. I was into sports and hiking. I bound them when I was playing softball because I was teased that I would give myself a bloody nose when I ran. I have had... READ MORE

I have been following a lot of wonderful ladies and their journey to get their reductions. I figured it is time to share my story as well. This will probably be long, so if you finish reading to the end, thank you in advance. ;) I was in the 5th grade when my mom said we are going to have to... READ MORE
