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 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

Okay. So. I just joined this site a few days ago because I'm starting to get nervous. I have my first consult with Dr. Carolyn Duval in Saskatoon, SK on June 21st.

I'd been struggling with uneven breasts since I was a teenager. I had a reduction on my left side when I was 18 to try to correct it. It didn't help me to feel more confident really and it had been something that I stressed about daily for the past 10 years. Finally I decided I wouldn't let... READ MORE

Hi All, I had my first consult with the PS earlier this month and was advised I was a perfect candidate for breast reduction surgery - let me say, this was magic to my ears indeed! I am currently a 12E and the PS suggested about a C cup which was exactly what I was hoping to hear. I had... READ MORE

It's finally happening!!! Like most of us who seek a breast reduction, I have large breasts that interfere with my daily activities, and have done so since they developed. I went from beestings in training bras when I was 10-11 y/o to a full C cup when I was 12 y/o and they just kept growing. I... READ MORE

After all these years we've finally decided to just go for it and pay out of pocket to hopefully help me w/the "NORMAL" problems associated with having heavy breast for so many years, not to mention the additional benefits of the wardrobe & my self esteem! Had my pre op today and I'm so nervous... READ MORE

So I had my surgery on Wednesday. I have always been big chested and was extremely worried about the size after surgery. I started off as a 36G and I now think I am a big B or C which is smaller than what I wanted. I know my boobs don't define me but having a big chest all my life if is going to... READ MORE

Hello reader and potential or previous plastic surgery client!! :) Today is my Presurgical Testing day.

I have finally decided to get a breast reduction, after living with discomfort of heavy breasts for years. I had my consultation in March, received my approval about 3 weeks ago and set up a surgery date for June 1st. I have always been quite small, and weight changes have never effected the... READ MORE

I've been lurking on this website since January, and have benefitted so much from reading about the experiences of others, that I felt I should write something too. My breasts have not always been as large as they are now. It seems like they have slowly and continually been growing all my adult... READ MORE

I have put off this procedure for atleast 8 yrs. My breasts are still sore and swollen but, i can definitely see a large improvement. I was most impressed with Dr. Michael Huntly at coastal empire plastic surgery. He was very thorough, precise, and reassuring. Considering going back for lipo... READ MORE

Met my surgeon last year in April, without any hesitation he said I was a great candidate for a reduction. I had already had back surgery from lugging around heavy breasts. With each pregnancy they got bigger. With three kids I went from a C cup to a G cup. Had surgery on January 14 2016....so... READ MORE

I've always been the "girl with big boobs" and since I was in 8th grade, I always get comments and I've even been called "Brandi boobs". Well in August that finally gets to change! I found out yesterday I was approved at 100% for my breast reduction, and was able to schedule my surgery. I am... READ MORE

I seriously considered BR about 20 years ago and then I talked myself out of it. I think it was mostly from fear and whether would I be happy with the results. Now all these years later and I have terrible posture, and almost constant back , neck and shoulder pain and chronic migraines. I am... READ MORE
