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 needed this surgery since I was 18 years old. I finally couldn't deal with the chronic pain in neck, shoulders, hips, and back. After submitting request twice to insurance they approved it. I had 7 qualifications that BCBS of NM required: Chiro, Physical rehab, weight challenge,... READ MORE

15 Days to my consultation! I am so nervous, I so need this surgery (as seen in pictures) I have had a consultation before, but this was before my child. My husband lost his job, which meant the insurance went to. So I was not able to get the surgery. Three year later and a now 1 year old. I... READ MORE

Hello real self sisters! I currently had a breast reduction with Dr Curtsinger, Luke J. I've always needed one, so my doctor finally referred me to one of the best board certified plastic surgeons. I arrived at 0645, which my surgery was at 0730. The CRNA came in and stuck some medicine in my IV... READ MORE

Denied for breast reduction!!!! In June 2015, I began my journey and effort to seek approval for a breast reduction. The final straw was my getting a fungal (ring worm) infection which started under my breast. I've had it for over three months. I have always had upper neck pain, shoulder pain,... READ MORE

So far met the doctor and scheduled surgery. Currently 38DDD, 180 pounds and 5'7". Shoulders are dented and hurt daily. Weight of my breasts make me slouch. Been large all my life, but I have grown in the last several years. I exercise regularly, but lately, breasts hurt too much and I am having... READ MORE

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 had my consultation with Dr. Kasrai and so far so good. She's really nice and takes the time to answer all your questions (although I've been researching this procedure for years and didn't have many). I trust her and love her honesty, she wants you to have realistic expectations. She... READ MORE

I have been having the same issues as most with indents in the shoulders, neck and shoulder pain. I have always had large breast, so a little worried that they will end up too small, but excited for perky smaller breast. I am currently a 36 G going down to a 36 D. My insurance (Aetna) approved...

Just like many on here, I've had large breasts since I was about 12/13. In 6th grade I was a C cup and by high school I was a DD. I have always been on the curvy side but when I was in high school I lost about 30lbs and my breasts never got smaller. They continued to grow and grow, and this past... READ MORE

Hi all, I have been lurking for a bit but as my surgery date gets closer I would love to get engaged and post more. And I definitely could use the support! I am 28, 5'3", and 148 pounds. I currently am a 34F/G going hopefully down to a 34B. I want them to take as much as possible. My... READ MORE

My story is similar to many others' I have read here. I was a C cup in 7th grade, and I remember forgetting to put on a bra one morning and crying when I got home from school, because I had felt so gross all day. By the time I was 15, I was DDD, and I knew that I was going to get a reduction. It... READ MORE

Like most people who are thinking about getting a reduction, I have had large breast since an early age. I started growing in the 4th grade and by high school I was already a DD cup. Now I am a G cup and I am tired of the extra weight. I cannot enjoy the simple things in life without neck,... READ MORE

I've been thinking about a breast reduction for quite a while now. I've always been busty, but it's never really bothered me. I always have thought "Oh, they're not that big. They're pretty portioned to my body." I saw a few pictures from an event during the summer, and realized they are bigger... READ MORE

I went to see Dr. Bajaj in September on 2015 and two months later had a breast reduction. I have never felt more happy and beautiful then I do today. She made me so comfortable and even prompted me to have more questions for her when I came back. I will always recommend her to anybody. I look... READ MORE

Like many of you girls on this wonderful forum, I've always been "the girl with the huge boobs." I'm relatively tall (5'7"), with a long torso, so it's been a little easier for me to hide them than some girls, but since about fourth grade, I've been self conscious of and teased about my breasts,...

I have read a few stories so far and I am so happy I did! I saw my surgeon for my pre op appointment today. I found out that my breasts are too large for just a lollipop but she will do an anchor with a lollipop nipple procedure. ( I'm sure I'm getting phrasing confused but she drew what she was...
