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 ›

Was having trouble with heavy breasts for 8 years. I felt like I was disabled and finally decided to go to doctor for breast reduction. It was the best decision I ever made getting this done . I should have done it years ago and regret not doing it sooner. I feel light and free and can't wait... READ MORE

So I been wanting a reduction for some time but for whatever reason thought it would be too much of a headache going through the process of getting it approved. I'm insured through tricare and other women I knew who got one said it took almost a year of appointments and complaining to get it... READ MORE

I have a small frame, so carrying around such large breasts has been a huge burden. I'm pretty athletic, I love backpacking, running swimming ect. And having such large breasts has been a huge pain. I went to breastlink to get a small lump I found biopsyed. It ended up being non cancerous, but... READ MORE

Hey ladies. I'm glad I finally got the courage to post on this website. So on January 15th, I had a consultation with my doctor. Her names Riesa Burnet. I already love her. She talked me through everything. Took measurements and pictures. My bra is a 42FF and im even popping out of that so I... READ MORE

I had my surgery 2months ago. My ps did not use drains & used anchor incision. I had a lot of pain the first 2weeks but my chronic back/neck pain is gone, for that I am thankful! I have 2 spots that still drain and scab. Has anyone went through this?? My ps says it's fine but I don't think... READ MORE

Constant sore shoulders & neck along with deep red grooves in shoulders. Uncomfortable and self- conscious when/if I go running. Had several consultations over the years and even saw a PS a few weeks ago who has provided a quote & told me to book the date. However GP does not think... READ MORE

My surgery was one year ago today. I can not tell you how completely elated I am!! Starting with Dr. Chopra, Mandy, Rob and complete staff. I have had LIMITED surgeries in my years so this was a "BIG STEP". As I tell every woman now... I only wish I wound have had my procedures 3 years... READ MORE

Hey Everyone!I've been reading real self reviews for years as a motivation for my breast reduction. I've had big breasts since the age of 12 and only continued to grow and grow and grow!!! I had a bilateral breast reduction done on May 26, 2016 at the age of 21! So here is my experience! Find... READ MORE

Breasts have been an issue for me pretty much my entire life. At the age of 8, my breasts began to form and I became very self conscience about it because it wasn't happening to any of my other friends. I remember asking my mom to buy me a bra, and she ignored me and refused to. I became... READ MORE

I'm a 65 yr. old grandma that thinks young. I've thought about this for a long time, but could never justify such an expensive personal indulgence, considering I'm on a fixed income and not optimistic that Medicare and/or my secondary insurance will approve me. Im not really large (38DD/E) but... READ MORE

(Melb Australia) I was a D cup by the time I was 18 even though I was slim. My well endowed chest was then a source of embarrassment to me for the rest of my adult life. I continued to get even bigger after having 2 kids, 5 years apart. More recently they were so big and daggy and heavy I felt... READ MORE

First of all I have always wanted to do this I just always changed my mind. I have been approved and will have my surgery in Tupelo Ms w Dr Craig on 4/20 I'm so scared and nervous. I have heard that the pain is the worst. And I'm an hour away from my doctor office. I'm trying to be prepared... READ MORE

My boobs have been large since they first developed that was around 5th grade. The kids would always stare. Boys made nasty, mannish comments. I often wore jackets or sweaters trying to hide my chest. My mom bought bras that seemed to make me look bigger. She didn't understand. My boobs have... READ MORE

I've always been a little overweight. Always had big boobs ands never the "good kind". They always been a little saggy and the more my weight went up and down the bigger and saggier they got. Finally I had saved enough money for a reduction. My size at the time was a 38DD. Although I still... READ MORE

Thank you to all for sharing your reviews, they are very helpful to many and myself included! I am almost on a year long journey to get breast reduction done and get it done through the VA. So I hope other veterans may find some use from my review as I basically have been doing this blind with... READ MORE

My breasts are 36K and I just want them to be normal. I'm in constant pain and am so sick of people telling me I have huge boobs (Really? I had no idea!), not being able to wear clothes, my boobs knocking things over, etc. I have my consultation today and I'm so nervous because I want this so... READ MORE

I went for a consultation on February 16, 2016. Request for approval from insurance was submitted by the doctors office. It was approved with a window opened for 3 months (by May 16th).I have had a big bust since 6th grade! As long as I can remember I have had back, neck, and shoulder pain from... READ MORE

I've been embarrassed about my chest size for as long as I can remember. All of the women on both sides of my family are very large in the chest area, and I can remember praying when I was in 3rd grade that I would never be that big. My mom caught me mid-prayer, and she informed me that I was... READ MORE

Before I had children (at ages 39 and 40), my breasts were fabulous! They were a perky "C" and they couldn't hold a pencil! Now at 56 years old, they hang like 2-deflated eggplants. Today, June 6, 2016, I had a consult with my preferred surgeon, Dr. Susan Vasco. I was thrilled when she... READ MORE

I've been medically advised to get a reduction for several years but other health issues combined with my general unhappiness with the local PS's outcomes meant that it was on the back burner. However, a few things have prompted me to get moving on the process: I found a PS that has... READ MORE
