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 ›

Ready for Reduction at 40!

I have an approval for reduction! Been working on that for a year and a half. What made the difference - new insurance company. United Healthcare was a no. Anthem Blue Cross is a yes - changed insurance in January. Quick approval. Now, it's real - and I'm scared. Silly. Just am. Soooo nervous... READ MORE

I've wanted a breast reduction for 15 years(or more!) Ever since I became a 36DD in high school. Right now I'm currently squeezing in a 38DDD. I've waited until I was done breastfeeding all my children. I'm finally ready to be done with the daily backaches and bad posture. I'm constantly feeling... READ MORE

43 Year Old Mom with 2 Kids, Saying Goodbye to GG.

I have been waiting my whole life for this. I don't remember ever being a small breasted woman. I got boobs early in 4th grade!

40H/J, 25 Yrs Old, No Kids, Neck/Back/Shoulder Pain - Saint Petersburg, FL

I've literally had breast tissue since I was 1. My doctor made me go to an endocrinologist to ensure my hormones were all at the right levels.

Best choice for Breast Reduction has been India

Recovery is going great. I have had discomfort and inconvenience due to being operated on, but pain was almost nothing. Really an easy procedure to do from my perspective. I had some pain killers after surgery but nothing heavy. After 2 nights of sleeping pills, I dropped them and have been able... READ MORE

24 and Ready to Be Free!! - United Kingdom

At the moment, I'm not 100% sure what size my breasts are. I'm a UK size 10 with a side of 'squished in boobs' in a lot of clothing. I have bras that range from 32ff to 34ff (some 34f's, 34e's). I'm not entirely convinced any of them fit me properly but the closest (34ff) digs in at the front of... READ MORE

Finally.....Got the Reduction I've always wanted.

My recovery is going pretty good. My awesome surgeon was Dr. Melissa Klausmeyer at #KaiserPermanente. My surgery went well, woke up with no pain, no drains used either which I was very glad about.

32 Year Old Needing a Mommy Makeover. Miami, FL

Picking a surgeon is so much harder than I expected, I have a small budget so I've been mostly looking in Miami, the Dominican Republic and Mexico. I'm 95% sure I'll be using Mel Ortega from Spectrum Aesthetics. My quote was 6800 for a tummy tuck, breast reduction and lift, and lipo of the... READ MORE

I have had breasts as long as I can remember, but over the past year, I've had terrible upper back pain after losing weight but not losing breast fat.

33 yr old 34H finally getting a breast reduction!!!

When I was 19 years old and a 34DD, I was approved by insurance for a breast reduction. I was all set to have it, but at the last minute my family decided (for me) not to go through with it. I convinced myself, if I stayed slim, my chest was manageable and I could live with it for the time being... READ MORE
