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 ›

I went through with breast reduction surgery simply because I suffered from neck, upper and lower back pain. After my baby was born in 2015, my breast became larger and the pain worsened. I'm now a 34C and I am pleased with my results. My main concern is the healing and dehisce. I'm only 2 weeks... READ MORE

I didn't have big breasts until about age 20. I went through high school with a perky C cup. Then at age 20 seemingly overnight my breast were a DD. Flash to now (age 27) and I'm in a F cup! Today, 07-26-16, starts my journey towards a reduction. I can no longer handle the pain in my neck,... READ MORE

Well I am on this path again. In 2013 I meet with a surgeon who I felt really put me down, he convinced me that I would just be happy with a lift and brushed off the fact that I wanted smaller breast. So I meet with Dr Andrade after that and went ahead with a lift. I am really really happy with... READ MORE

Warning! Extremely long text post. (Sorry everyone!) I remember the moment when it came to my attention that I needed to start wearing bras. I was in the fourth grade, and I was trying on shirts at a clothing store with my mother, and I came out of the dressing room to show her the shirt I... READ MORE

Where do I begin.... I've longed for a breast reduction since the age of 18 but I've always had breast issues as a kid. I started wearing training bras in the 3rd grade and the tender age of 9. As the years passed, I grew taller, wider and so did the "girls". By the time I reached middle school,... READ MORE

It was really important to get my breast reduced and lifted. I got tired of not being able to wear matching bras and panties because the full coverage/ supportive bra never came with panties to match. Also i always want to wear backless shirts and dresses. I started watching Disla's work and was... READ MORE

Had my first appointment with the surgeon last month and, while I'm still quite nervous about going ahead with the reduction, I'm definitely ready to downsize in the boob department. I'm currently a 32GG and can't wait to be able to wear whatever I want instead of clothes that either make my... READ MORE

The "girls" have been large since they 1st came in. I can't remember them ever being small. I have 2 kids and they got larger every time. Past 8 years I have had severe rib pain, neck pain, gnarly back pain, and nasty headaches. I'm not a lazy person, I miss going on hikes and doing even the... READ MORE

After many years of living with pain caused by the 36DDD girls, I finally got my insurance's approval to go through with the breast reduction. I couldn't have been more excited to finally be given the chance to do it. My breasts started developing when I was in about 5th grade. They were pretty... READ MORE

This is an informative site from the prospective of the patient. All the photos are helpful and everyone seems so happy about the choice they've made without having unreal expectations.

I finally decided it's time to do something. My neck kills me nearly constantly. I go for another neck injection next week. :( my back hurts, can't exercise comfortably, my arms go to sleep at night due to me sleeping on my side and boobs most likely cutting off circulation. I wear a 40 DDD... READ MORE

Today was the first step towards my new self! Finally was able to schedule my Consultation with Dr. Hsu on June15 with Memorial Plastic Surgery. Will post more after my consultation. Questions: Any suggestions on what to do before? Also I'm curious to know about how everyone was able to... READ MORE

This is a 10 year journey for me to get to have a reduction. I've only taken it really seriously in the last year but have thought about it for a very long time. I've just recently gotten approved by insurance for the procedure and I'm beyond excited for it. I'm a chef and trust me, these girls... READ MORE

Have had 3 back surgeries so to help with back pain I was able to convince insurance I need the reduction. I may do a tummy tuck as well. To help my stomach muscles after having 3 kids. TBD. Yes I'm nervous I want to video update my procedure and Recovery as I go thru it because I think it... READ MORE

Well I finally did it, never late than never. I have had large breasts since in my 20's, somewhere in the 40 G/H range. It was OK when I was young, the guys like them and my girlfriends were jealous and I was of that generation you just put up with what you were given.. Then my nieces... READ MORE

Back pain decreased. Easier to exercise. Nice to be able to buy cute tops and wear strapless bra. 2months out And loving the results. Everyone has ups and downs when you feel like your incisions aren't healing as quickly as you'd like. I only took one week off of work post surgery. Every day I'm... READ MORE
