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 ›

Fixing Saggy Breastfeeding Boobs/ Inner Thigh Lipo

I had my kids very early. Always had nice perky C boobs, after having them they went up and down and finally settled on a 36DD. While they aren't huge, its enough to be annoying and I'd like to return to my pre-baby figure. I work out a ton, boobs are always spilling out and I'm self... READ MORE

My large breasts have hindered my life for long enough. I have random sharp pains in my neck, back and shoulders several times a day. I can't do anything without wearing a bra.

I was in 5th grade and was wearing a tube top during the summer and realized everybody was staring at my chest when I realized I was bigger busted than anyone else I knew in my school.

33 Years Old, 2 Children, BR from 32H to 32D? and TT

I have had relatively large breasts every since I first got them. Growing up I could never buy a bra that fitted properly (was using crazy back sizes when I was probably a 30 or less). It is much easier nowadays, I could buy bras online or at bravisimo, but I like the convenience of the local... READ MORE

I have had huge boobs my whole life. Not only have they been the source of unwanted attention and ridicule, but also of back, neck, and shoulder pain.

35 Years Old, 3 Children and Suffering for Way Too Many Years with Neck and Shoulder Pain Not to Mention the Constant Headaches

I have been researching for a couple of years now and finally very recently did it. My doctor and all the staff have been amazing thus far.
