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.

After having huge breasts for years and years I finally decided to look into a breast reduction. About a year before seeing Dr Bajaj I saw another surgeon who advised me I did not have large enough breasts to remove a minimum of 1,000 cc's from each side. I decided to seek another opinion and Dr... READ MORE

Surgery tomorrow......dreading and nervous.....but tired of not letting my picture be snapped due to embarrassment.

I've been thinking about getting a reduction for years. I was a D by the end of middle school. I'm now at a 38H. I know I need to lose some weight overall, but I've always felt very unproportional.

Since I hit puberty I don't ever recall having nice perky breasts. I remember them being small mounds then blam!, large breasts that hung. When I say hung, I felt that they hung rather low.
