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 ›

I've been lurking here and reading for awhile and finally decided to document my journey. I'm just going to start with the background and then catch up to the present over the next few days.

My family has referred to the generally large breast size on my mother's side of the family as "The Family Curse". There are 4 females in my mom's generation and 10 female cousins in my generation. Of these 14 women, I am the third to have a breast reduction (One aunt did as well, but it was... READ MORE

I have always had large breasts since age 11. I am highly active; Crossfit, spin, swim, hike and run. I am a fit, petite girl. As a teen, I wanted a BR due to my activity level & teasing, saw a surgeon then, but it wasn't the right time, I wasn't done growing yet - he suggested I wait. I waited... READ MORE

44 years old. Two weeks PO- wanted to share experience. Breast were F/G cup. I am hopeful that my final result after the BR will be a full D or small DD.

Hi I am 27 years old and have had big boobs since I can remeber! When I had my daughter they really grew!

I choose Dr. Pollard because of her credentials, years of experience, pictures of previous work and her personality. I did not experience any excessive wait times and she made me feel like I was the only one on her patient list for the day. I was having two procedures done at the same time and... READ MORE

After wanting it since puberty, I have finally decided to pursue getting a breast reduction. I'm ready to end the years of emotional and physical pain. Although I measure 32G or bigger, I wear 36dd/ddd bras which fit comfortably enough but cannot make up for that my chest is far too big for my... READ MORE

Hi all... I currently am a 38H. Always have had a large chest. Ready to get these puppies tamed down. I've always had pain, but it recently became more apparent to me. Drove a 1984 Chevy K-10 pick up from Georgia to Wisconsin. After dealing with the bumps and suspension of that vehicle, I... READ MORE

I will finally make the leap of faith to get the ball rolling on having my breasts reduced. Based on my own measurements, I'm a 40G and I was told that my breasts weight approx 5 - 5 1/2 lbs each. I've been working on weight loss for the past 2 months (down 12 lbs) as I want to reach a healthy... READ MORE

I had a BR done in 1981 by Dr. Marcia Fitzpatrick at 25, when I went from 34DD to 34B. My boobs held up for 25+ years, even with a 40-pound weight gain in pregnancy, but menopause did them in. Back to 32DDD at age 59. Sigh. I often thought about repeat surgery and checked out loads of online... READ MORE

I have wanted this since being a teenager. My mother talked me into waiting till after I had kids. At 37 I finally decided enough is enough, why suffer with back pain and headaches and awful droopy breast. I never liked my breast growing up so I hope that not only will the pain go away but that...
