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 ›

Had my first appointment with the surgeon last month and, while I'm still quite nervous about going ahead with the reduction, I'm definitely ready to downsize in the boob department. I'm currently a 32GG and can't wait to be able to wear whatever I want instead of clothes that either make my... READ MORE

After many years of living with pain caused by the 36DDD girls, I finally got my insurance's approval to go through with the breast reduction. I couldn't have been more excited to finally be given the chance to do it. My breasts started developing when I was in about 5th grade. They were pretty... READ MORE

This is an informative site from the prospective of the patient. All the photos are helpful and everyone seems so happy about the choice they've made without having unreal expectations. It's like who cares about the scars it's the size that counts. I haven't seen any procedures like mine but... READ MORE

Well I finally did it, never late than never. I have had large breasts since in my 20's, somewhere in the 40 G/H range. It was OK when I was young, the guys like them and my girlfriends were jealous and I was of that generation you just put up with what you were given.. Then my nieces... READ MORE

Back pain decreased. Easier to exercise. Nice to be able to buy cute tops and wear strapless bra. 2months out And loving the results. Everyone has ups and downs when you feel like your incisions aren't healing as quickly as you'd like. I only took one week off of work post surgery. Every day I'm... READ MORE

My boobs sprouted overnight which caused me to be in denial about the way my body was suddenly changing and that along with the general widespread misinformation about bra sizing in the US led to me wearing ill fitting, unsupportive bras for years, which in turn led to a lot of sagging and...

I've had breasts since I was 8 years old. I've always felt fat because of them. No cheerleading, sports, drill team, or cute spaghetti strap tops for me either. No back problems that qualified me to have surgery until now! Didn't realize that the what I was dealing with - shoulder grooves, neck... READ MORE

I am struggling with the result of my body weight gain and loss, gain and loss..... And the fact that I am now close to 60 years of age doesn't make it any easier for my skin to handle the up and down in size. My breasts and my tummy gave in to gravity. I am thinking about a tummy tuck for quite... READ MORE

I need my breast done pretty bad! I breast fed my child and pumped for 6 months. I have extra skin and my breast are heavy. While I was breath feeding, my breast were extremely huge. Before you seen me, you seen my friend first. They will smaller now but I'm left with the extra skin and having... READ MORE

I am just your everyday mum, wife, career girl with a passion for life! I am happy in every aspect of my life and live it to the full but hate my boobs! They really are awful and succeed in making me look much larger than I really am. I am a curvey UK 12/14 yet have to buy much larger... READ MORE

I always asked myself of I could do that surgery. I was always aware of my breast as I am a "small" girl (5'3" - 120lbs) with E-Fcups. It was ok to live with it, until I started doing more exercises (yoga and running). When I do yoga my breast is always in the way, when I run it bounce even... READ MORE

I'm 24, 130 lbs and 32 DD/DDD. I've thought about great reduction for years, but haven't really pursued it. I'm getting more and more fed up and self conscious, so I think it might be time to do something! I live in Canada, so I'm hoping to get it covered by insurance. I don't even really know...

Okay so Ive been looking in this website for quite awile now. All the BR reviews on this website have motivated and encouraged me to finally consider surgery :) So I'm finally deciding to be brave and start making moves to have a breast reduction! I am 5'2, weigh 170 ILBS, and am 19 years old.... READ MORE

My right breast was a DD and my left was a B, maybe a C. I could never find the right bra and I always felt uncomfortable in anything I wore, including bathing suits. To fix this my doctor did a breast lift on the left side and a breast reduction on the right to match the left side. I know that... READ MORE

I have always had large breasts. My first bra was a C cup. After having and nursing three children I progressively went through the D cups. I am perimenopausal and recently bought a DDD minimizer bra. I could barely be contained in each cup, so I am probably more of an F cup. I am experiencing... READ MORE

I've been wanting a BR ever since junior high, my mom wouldn't let me.Years later I've done my research and found a board plastic surgeon, went for consultation, then I got an approval within a month, but since it was before the holidays, I decided to do the surgery after the holidays. Then Jan... READ MORE

Tomorrow is the big day! I'm getting my breast reduction. I'm going from a 38H to a full C cup. Three weeks ago I got my approve called. My surgery date was set for March 1 2016 yesterday I got a call that my surgery date had to be move to March 2 2016 kinda nervous about that but other the that... READ MORE

I'm a little weak and I move... READ MORE

Like most people that post on here, expressing a need for doing the BR surgery, I am no different. my breast started growing when I was nine years old and I have always hated them in terms of their size. I am now 155lbs at 5 ft 3inches, not necessarily small but I am comfortable in my skin, my... READ MORE

Now's the time, and the serious journey has begun! I have been desperately in need of a breast reduction for the past 10 years. I had a hysterectomy done in 2005, and ever since then, my breasts have grown and grown. I went from a C to a DDD in that time. My back and shoulders are in constant... READ MORE
