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 ›

Well the time has finally come! This Wednesday I am scheduled to have my breast reduction surgery and I'm nervous and anxious but also excited. I've always had large breasts and I've suffered from serious back, neck, and shoulder pain for years, as well as terrible headaches, which after... READ MORE

Same story as everyone with development early and poor self esteem. No matter how much weight I would lose...I never went below a DDD/G. I decided it was finally time and I am so thankful I went thru with the reduction:lift! So worth it. If this is something you are considering just jump in... READ MORE

42 years old, breast size 30H. Breasts literally saying hello to my navel and causing me strain on the neck and upper back ache. Mrs Kat is warm , friendly and compassionate. She cares about her patients and has a great sense of judgement when I comes to changing the shape of your body. The post... READ MORE

I had a BR in Jan. and had to do a scar revision 7 months post-op because my scars became wide, dark and thin causing pain. I was using Mederma and wearing a sports bra. I had no idea about tension causing scars to widen. My scars healed and closed up great but after a few months I had scars... READ MORE

Time to do something for me! I've dealt with back/neck pain for too long. Been to chiropractors, pain management, been on pain meds for about 6mo now. Met with Dr McKane and was told I was a perfect candidate. Insurance approved in 4 days! Had my surgery on Sept 9th (yesterday). Woke up and my... READ MORE

I'm 15 days post op now but wanted to share my story as reading about you amazing women during my recovery has been really helpful. My breast size increased from a 34E/36DD during the pregnancy of my third child to a 34GG and the boobs just never went back down again despite returning to my pre... READ MORE

I am 175lbs, 5'2" tall. I wear a size 38DDD. I have been wanting a BR for sometime now. My hubby has been totally against it but now that he sees how much pain they cause me, he understands it needs to be done. I keep looking at myself and trying to picture how my new body will look with boobs... READ MORE

This was easily, the most nerve racking decision of my life. Up to the day before my procedure, I was asking myself: "are you really going to do this to your body". I almost contacted the doctor's office and cancelled the procedure. I believe we all go through this struggle, as it is a huge life... READ MORE

I have read many mixed reviews about this doctor so I was apprehensive to say the least. I live 4 1/2 hours from Miami so I have had to base my decision solely from reviews. Last week I decided to bite the bullet and schedule surgery (breast redux and tummy tuck). By friday I was a nervous... READ MORE

I have been following a lot of wonderful ladies and their journey to get their reductions. I figured it is time to share my story as well. This will probably be long, so if you finish reading to the end, thank you in advance. ;) I was in the 5th grade when my mom said we are going to have to... READ MORE

Tomorrow at 8am! Kind of nervous but after reading all the reviews I'm ready. Going from a 34 ddd to a c. Doc said nipples will be about 2 inches higher. I'm older than most of you but very young looking. I figure do it now before I can't! United Health wouldn't cover it, but switched to BC and... READ MORE

I was sick of my ginormous boobies getting in the way. I have been on a fitness kick, running 5k's, lifting weights and doing Zumba. I just had my procedure on 7/19/16 and I feel amazing. I haven't had hardly any pain. I highly recommend it to anyone who is well endowed in the breast department.... READ MORE

Today is the day.! I am only hours away from going to sign in and have the reduction. Insurance has yet to confirm payment, I have to sign a waiver being held reliable. Anyone else? What were the outcome ? I am not going to even try to play tough, I am scared. I have slept only 2 hours and in... READ MORE

I am very nervous about my upcoming surgery. I have so many questions and doubts. I've been reading this site like a maniac. My insurance (Blue Cross) authorized it with no issue. My Dr and I talked about going to a size C. But since I'm 5'3 230 lbs I have about 100 lbs to lose, we settled at a... READ MORE

Well girls, I'm calling time ... The Girls Gotta Go! I've read your stories and experiences with much interest over the past 18 months and now it's time to tell mine so others may benefit. My "fun bags" are not fun, never really have been if we're honest about it. They are heavy and painful, and... READ MORE

I underwent a minimally breast reduction surgery and a breast lift 6 weeks ago. My before size was 38 H. Now I am a 36 D and I cannot believe how great I feel. My breasts were so heavy that I suffered from neck, shoulder, and upper back discomfort on a daily basis. After the surgery I... READ MORE

My motivation for the Breast Reduction and Lift was after a whole life time of enduring the excess baggage! I've always had these boobs and oh boy were they the Thorne in my side, neck, shoulders, back and in my eyes! I absolutely hated them with a passion and some more! Never being able to... READ MORE
