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.

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

I have been thinking about getting a breast reduction since I was a C-cup in junior high school. I kept growing and growing and finally, at the beginning of this year, I decided that I had had enough. I was measured at a 34F, having to spend hundreds of dollars on bras, and never being able to... READ MORE

Greetings to all who come and read my introduction i'm glad you're here accompanying me through my journey. I'm sure throughout the next few months I'll have moments of ranting or venting and some posts will seem pointless but I'll try to document my experience as clearly and informatively as... READ MORE

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

Doctor Yager is extremely professional and nice, he explains things thoroughly and will continue to explain until you completely understand and feel comfortable with what is happening. The office staff is very accommodating and professional as well, Especially his Nurse Kristian, she made the... READ MORE

Just scheduled my surgery today. Will be April 21st. I am 39 yrs old, 165lb, 5'3", approx. a 36/38H according to an online bra calculator, but wear a 38DDD, squishing them in for modesty reasons (I'm extremely self-conscious about them). Excruciating back pain for years now, and it has become... READ MORE

My BR is already scheduled for July. It makes me happy because it is real now. I began to prepare myself for this surgery back in January of last year. I have completed the chiropractor's 3 months routine hoping that Cigna would cover the surgery. I was very upset when I found that Cigna... READ MORE

So I had my surgery on Wednesday. I have always been big chested and was extremely worried about the size after surgery. I started off as a 36G and I now think I am a big B or C which is smaller than what I wanted. I know my boobs don't define me but having a big chest all my life if is going to... 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

Hello all. I have had my reduction surgery this morning after a few months of following this site.  I was previously a 38DD and hoping for  a B/C cup. I'm 30, no children, active/athletic. I have always thought I had big boobs, but didn't really think I was an extreme enough case to have this s... READ MORE

Dr. Webb is an amazing doctor. He made me feel comfortable and secure. If the rating scale was 1-10, I would give him a 10. Because of God he is that good. Never stop using your gifts. You are the man. My cup size was a G, so Doctor Webb went in and reduce my cup size to an C cup. He... READ MORE

After years of wishing I had smaller breasts I am finally taking the plunge. I am 38DD which is big but not over the top. I just want a nice modest, small C so I can wear clothes that fit!!! I am so tired of buttons straining while too loose around the body. I am also getting my hooded... READ MORE

I have had large breast from I was a preteen. I have always been a very petite girl with large breast. This continued into adulthood and prior to having my daughter I was a 34 DD. I then became a 38 DDD. I researched long and hard and ran into a YouTuber who referenced dr.zinsser and it was all... READ MORE

Being super mom you really don't get a chance to really review your body until tragic strike's and that's what happen, neck and back pains!!! The worst, and all for overly large breast that was once beautiful but definitely needed special attention ASAP, so I search and that's when I found Dr.... READ MORE

I'm a 42 year old mother of 2. My kids are 11 and 13. I am 5'4" and weigh 143 pounds. I gained a lot of weight with my kids. I went up to 180 and my bra size went from a 36C to a 38H. When both my kids started school I lost about 40 pounds. None of it was in my breasts. I know that is when I... READ MORE

I was on the fence for oh....25 years or so on getting a breast reduction. The pain in my back, arms etc... was just not going to get better as I have aged. Better to just do it now than keep putting it off. He and his staff have been incredible. While in surgery he found cysts and even went... READ MORE

Like many of you I've been wanting to have a breast reduction since college. But I was never brave enough to do it. By now my breasts are really on the way of normal existence. My posture is crap, not only from carrying all this extra weight on the front but also from trying to hide my huge... READ MORE

My initial experience with Dr. Shell was wonderful, all the way up to surgery. After surgery my stitches came open. I went to Dr Shell's office the very same day. He didn't sew up the open place but put a sterile strip over it. That didn't hold it together. After a few days an infection set in.... READ MORE
