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 ›

Firstly I want to start by saying Dr Ellen's Office, Staff and everything is absolutely amazing. They are really there to work with you and meet your goals. Every phone call was polite and informative. During my consultation it was really great. Meghan the practice manager was funny and she gave... READ MORE

I went to see Dr. Dash today and was very pleased. She took time to explain the anchor procedure, how much time would be needed for the surgery, itself 3 hours, and how she doesnt use drains, and why she doesn't. She took measurements and photos. She remarked I have very heavy breast(I know,... READ MORE

I am a 25 y/o hairstylist. I have had large breasts since 7th grade when I came back to school over break and had developed into a large D. From there I kept developing and graduated high school at an F. In the past couple years with a little weight gain, I have topped out at a 38 H. I'm a... READ MORE

I'm a 31 year old mother of 2, 5'11 and 200 lbs. I have been considering a BR for the last 5 years and have finally mustered the courage to go through with it. I have been dealing with chronic back, neck, shoulder pain and headaches that have recently become unbearable. My job requires me to be... READ MORE

So I have just booked to have my initial consult with a plastic surgeon! I feel like I am rushing in to this a little but if I am moving interstate soon and would like to do it before I go. I got my referral yesterday and seeing the surgeon for my initial consult on Monday - eep!!!! I don't... READ MORE

At the moment, I haven't really done much. I'm a vet, so I just got into the VA system, and spoke to my primary care. She agreed right off the bat that a breast reduction is an option, and told me she'd put in a referral to the plastic surgeon. Right now, I'm waiting for him/her to call me,... READ MORE

Breast reduction was something I had never really considered as an option until speaking to a friend about it last spring. I am quite active -- bicyclist and musher -- and frankly, my 38DDs get in the way. I saw a PS last month and was delighted to learn my insurance will cover the procedure. Of... READ MORE

I'm 5'2" and my weight fluctuates from 145 to 160 depending of the season. I don't have children. I've worn a C cup or greater since I was 12. My bra size was a 30 to 32F earlier last year. It is now 32G. Since I took courage from reading the posts on here, I decided to contribute in the hope... READ MORE

I've wanted to get a reduction for the past several years. I would exercise, but my breasts remained the same size and felt like they were getting more and more saggy. I am a newlywed and my husband likes to be active. I couldn't exercise without pain. Very happy to get it done! I began as a 38... READ MORE

I have 40f cup size , I'm 5ft 2. I hate seeing myself in the mirror. I have difficulties at the gym. When I wear my sports bra I feel like they are strangling me ????. I just want a nice pair of boobs that don't droop. I went to see my consultant last April, and he was brilliant with me. I... READ MORE

So many reasons to get this done for myself. I need it so badly. Been waiting a week mow for my GYN to call me with a referral to a surgeon. I already have physically therapy recorded for neck pain causing migraines. In pain every day and clothes shopping is a JOKE. Comment if you have advice... READ MORE

My insurance with Blue Choice approved my surgery very quickly--I could hardly believe it! My Surgery was scheduled for July 25th 2016, but four days before the date, I got a rash between my boobs! The surgery was postponed and now I'm just focused on healing and making sure the rash doesn't... READ MORE

Similar story that many have told before, except that my chest wasn't unusually large until pregnancy. I was always a 32c, then d after the first pregnancy, then dd after the second pregnancy. After that I seemed to grow a cup size each year until I got to my current size of 32h. I've been... READ MORE

Holy cow! It's happening! My original surgery date was November 28, but they just moved me up to October 5! So now I have less than 2 weeks to prepare for surgery when I was planning on having 2 months. I'm beyond excited but nervous that I'm not prepared. The one appointment I've had with my... READ MORE

Finally taking the plunge and getting a breast reduction. Surgery will be July 5th, Co firmed this morning! I remember playing outside when I was a kid, maybe 8 or so, and overhearing my aunt say to my mom "looks like she might need to start wearing a bra soon". I also remember sitting in the... READ MORE

I'm of Sri Lankan Heritage, aged 34, with two daughters aged 22 months and 10 years. I developed breasts at around... READ MORE

After years of back, neck and shoulder pain due to my cumbersome breasts, I finally built up the courage to have a BR. A total of 1000 grams were removed from each breast, and there was an immediate difference in the amount if strain following my surgery. I'm excited for my journey towards a... READ MORE

Hey, guys. I've spent hours every day reading your stories and looking at your photos. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm a petite, shy, 26 year old who had been wanting a BR since middle school. My back, neck, and shoulders hurt every day. I've weighed 115-140 lbs, and my breasts hardly change... READ MORE

Since I was a teenager I have had large sized boobs to which everyone believes to be 'proportionate to my body size'. I am a tall woman so my weight seems evenly dispersed, but my chest is way too large. Because of its size (44 JJ UK) my boobs sag a lot, and this sagging causes chest pains when... READ MORE

Dr. Hyans is awsome. He makes you feel so comfortable, answered all my question. The initial consultation was lengthy but very well worth it. He Explains everything through the whole process and really does a thorough examination on your breast. The day of my surgery he marked me and went... READ MORE
