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 ›

Finally Decided to Do It - Reading, PA

I have been contemplating a BR for many years, but don't like pain, so couldn't make the decision to have the surgery.

Just a little over 2 months to do before my surgery! I've had a big chest for as long as I can remember, started wearing a bra in 4th grade and it just went up from there.

44 Years Old, 36G to 36D - Sioux Falls, SD

I am scheduled for my BR tomorrow. Will be laid up for thanksgiving but it will be well worth it. I was a DD by the time I was in 7th grade and have had very large breasts since. Can't wait to "run".

45 year old 2 kids BR and Lipo

Overall doing great. I thought it would be much more painful and be full of bruising. I had more discomfort with Lipo than BR. Lipo feels like a c section or like you just did 1000 sit ups with pain meds it is 100% manageable. Hardest part now is relaxing and reminding myself to rest and not... READ MORE
