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 ›

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've been left and right on this site looking around gaining insight and am thoroughly convinced this is the correct course of action. I thought breasts were supposed to stop growing at a...

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 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

After lossing weight and having two pregnancies my breast was in serious need of help.

I am hoping to have relief from the upper and lower back pain. I'd like to learn to run, for the first time in my life. Tired of wearing bras with no support to avoid pain. I developed large breasts as an 11 year old child. I don't know what life will be like with smaller breasts. I am a little... READ MORE

Yesterday was the big day. I spent half the night looking at the girls wondering how they would turn out. I finally make it to the hospital and was greeted by a very friendly staff. Once checked in the gave me something to calm my nerves and that was greatly appreciated. Dr. Orseck came in to do... READ MORE

Hey dolls! Man I've been waiting a LONG time for this. I started developing breasts when i was 9-10 years old. By the time I was 13 I was already a 38C. I was always known for having the biggest breasts in school or among friends. I was sexualized at a very young age, mainly by men old... READ MORE

Everyone wanted my boobs. They loved my boobs. But let me tell ya, big boobs are a bitch. For someone who's had them since 4th grade, let's just say by age 30 they weren't looking like perky 30 year old breasts ???? Finding a bra was terrible and expensive. Finding clothes that looked good was... READ MORE

I have been dreaming of this procedure for so long. I finally got the courage in January 2016 to call a surgeon and set up a consultation. I had my consultation and it went very well. Insurance is paying for my operation due to the intense problems I have faced since I was 12. My breasts have... READ MORE

Like most people who are thinking about getting a reduction, I have had large breast since an early age. I started growing in the 4th grade and by high school I was already a DD cup. Now I am a G cup and I am tired of the extra weight. I cannot enjoy the simple things in life without neck,... READ MORE
