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 ›

Ready to get this done! I I think my breasts could be great, if they were on a longer torso. My compact body size just doesn't work with these large breasts. I have really hated my boobs and the way they make me feel since 7th grade. I am a very active person, hiking, swimming, weight lifting,... 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.

Wanted to share my great experience with Dr Erwin Bulan of Millburn NJ. He was my surgeon for my BR which reduced my breast by about 6 pounds - from about a g/h to c/d. He is a patient and talented surgeon. I had never had cosmetic surgery before and was very nervous about the procedure. Dr B... READ MORE

I am 23 years old, 5'4", 144lbs of solid muscle (jk) and am a 32I (US equivalent) at the very least. Like many of you, I don't really have a solid bra size because I was born with bowling pins attached to my chest instead of boobs, so whatever size those are. Every day I hoist them into the same...

Since my surgery I have been feeling like a new person no more pain... READ MORE

I am SO beyond ready to get rid of my huge breasts. I have been obsessed with looking at RealSelf reviews, and they have been beyond helpful. It has inspired me to write my own reviews, and to try to be as thorough as possible. I have a *somewhat* unique situation (or maybe not, but I haven't... READ MORE

I have had large breast for as long as I can remember, over the past 4-5 yrs after having my child they have really become way to large and very heavy.

I choose to get a breast reduction this year because I could no longer handle the weight of them. I've had large breast since the 5th grade. Big busted for 24 years!

Mr Hassan is very personable but above all his work is exceptional. I am absolutely delighted with the size and shape of my new breasts and his 'needlework' is amazing. All the nurses who have changed my dressings have commented on what a neat job it is. The aftercare has been excellent, both... READ MORE

I had my consultation with my PS on Oct. 30th. He was very calming and very open about each procedure. I feel that I am in good hands. I was referred to him by two coworkers and they speaks very highly of him. As uncomfortable as it was to get naked (with my body issues) to take pics to submit... READ MORE
