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 wanted a BR for years for the standard reasons - back pain, etc, etc. I have a couple of aunts who have had them and saw a surgeon a couple of years ago: I didn't like him so didn't pursue it further. I have particular issues with upper back/neck pain and nerve compression in my right... READ MORE

Like most people here I have been very busty since I hit puberty. I was a DD by the time I was a freshman in high school and quickly grew to a DDD. My breast size didn't increase much when I was pregnant with my baby, but when I started breastfeeding, they grew to 36K. I am 5'1" and 140lbs. ... READ MORE

I am considering this BR. I would like to reduce the pain that is all over my body. I would like to run instead of walk. I would like find a bra that will fit from Victoria secrets or Kohls not a specialty store. I want cloths that are the right size. I believe Dr. Pollock will make it happen.... 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

Hello, my name is Vanessa, I'm 31 years old and I'm having my long awaited breast reduction in 2 days. I'm starting to panic a bit, of course, so I decided to start a journal here to try to calm me down. I have found a lot of comfort, courage and tips from the reviews in here that it encouraged...

Now that I'm under the one-month mark until surgery, I thought I'd stop being a lurker on RS and make my own post! Like so many women here, I have also struggled with a large (okay, huge) chest size, specifically in relation to my small frame. I have always been so, so self conscious of my body... READ MORE

I have been following a lot of wonderful ladies and their journey to get their reductions. I figured it is time to share my story as well. This will probably be long, so if you finish reading to the end, thank you in advance. ;) I was in the 5th grade when my mom said we are going to have to... READ MORE

I have had large breasts since Jr. High school. I started 6th grade in a b-cup, and by the time I graduated I was a DD. The girls became part of my identity, and not in a good way. I was teased about them. I tried several sports, but just couldn't take the running. I have wanted a breast... READ MORE

I 've thought about a BR at different times over the years but never checked it out. WHY??? I developed very early, like 4th or 5th grade. In Jr High some of the boys nicknamed me, Jungle Jugs. I'm heavier now than I want or should be, but even at a normal body weight, I'm still a 36DDD. ... READ MORE

Well here goes. I am a mum of one, 27 years old and have finally had my breast reduction after 5 years of trying. Since the tender age of 11 I have always been big busted. I tried so long to get this procedure on the NHS, then I fell pregant two years ago so was out on hold for obvious reasons... READ MORE

I'm 5'2" and my weight fluctuates from 145 to 160 depending of the season. I don't have children. I've worn a C cup or greater since I was 12. My bra size was a 30 to 32F earlier last year. It is now 32G. Since I took courage from reading the posts on here, I decided to contribute in the hope... READ MORE

After years of waiting for insurance approval I am officially approved and on the scheduled. I finally got a call back today to start the process. I see the Dr. next Weds again to ask any last minute questions before the procedure. I am So scared that I feel my heart pounding out of my chest.... READ MORE

I am 28 years old and I've considered getting a breast reduction for maybe 10 years now. Fear always talked me out of it. I've had chronic back and neck pains my entire life. I am also a hairdresser so you can imagine how much more of a strain that was! I finally got to a point when I realized... READ MORE

After many years of dreading to wear a bathing suit in front of others, feeling embarrassed at the gym, and hiding behind baggy clothes.... I've decided to finally go for it and get a breast reduction with a lift. At the age of 15 I was in a DD cup at 115 pounds and now I a F at 135 pounds. 16... READ MORE

My BR surgery is in just one week, so I thought that I should get on here and see about chronicling it. I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that it is happening, and until a couple of days ago I was still unsure about having it done. What changed my mind was a five day stretch where...

This was easily, the most nerve racking decision of my life. Up to the day before my procedure, I was asking myself: "are you really going to do this to your body". I almost contacted the doctor's office and cancelled the procedure. I believe we all go through this struggle, as it is a huge life... READ MORE
