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 have watched first hand the change in her, from more confident, excited about buying clothes, bras ... the list is long! So .. on to me, I have... 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

Have been thinking about getting a reduction for years... I've known for a long time that my mum had a breast reduction and she told me recently that her mum also had a reduction, so she is super supportive.

Heading to Miami because these doctors here in Maryland are outrageous with their prices. Some of their works are just too average for me. Hope Spectrum can help me. I like their price, because am not sure if my insurance will approve, even tho I have an awesome blue cross blue shield insurance,... READ MORE

Dr Kim is nothing short of a miracle worker. I was referred to him by a nurse/friend who gave glowing reports of Dr Kim for her breast revision. I interviewed many Dr's to evaluate my severely deformed deflated breasts. I always had extremely large pedulous breasts since puberty and spent my... READ MORE

Hi everybody, I am a 22 year old woman living in Nova Scotia, and I have 30 HH breasts. I have had them since I was at least 14. I remember being 12 and having these little buds, then after puberty they grew, and grew...and grew. I thought I was a DD for the longest time. I didn't even know how... READ MORE

Like most of you, I developed early and was teased and sexualized at a young age. I was a size 4/6 most of my life, with large breasts. I didn’t like them. They were hard to dress. Exercise was difficult. And worst of all was the continuous neck, shoulder and back pain. The shoulder grooves,... READ MORE

I've been researching breast reductions for years and I've finally decided to get the ball rolling ! I've asked around and decided my first action would be to change my insurance provider. I went with BCBS because of the ease of communication and they are pretty much excepted everywhere plus I... READ MORE

For a couple of years now, my regular physician has commented on my breast size and the problems it causes. The only pain that remains from my hard-learned strategies of coping with fibromyalgia, is neck, shoulder and upper back muscle spasms resulting from wearing a bra. For years now I have... READ MORE

So I have finally made the decision to get a breast reduction! Not sure why I did not consider this sooner! I have been on this site for about a month now. I have had one consultation which was a nightmare! The surgeon told me I needed to be 107 pounds and that he won't do surgery if I am over... READ MORE

Every morning I wake up with stiff hips, a searing pain through my mid-back, tight shoulders...that's if I'm lucky. Mostly I wake up several times throughout the night from the pain and inability to sleep through it. I have an expensive mattress, a wonderful pillow and raised hips (if that... READ MORE

I have severe back, shoulder and neck pain from overly large breasts. I've had this problem since puberty. I've also had issues finding bras that fit me well since my breasts are out of proportion and one is a couple cup sizes larger than the other. I am pretty sure my skeleton has permanent... READ MORE
