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 ›

I had my kids very early. Always had nice perky C boobs, after having them they went up and down and finally settled on a 36DD. While they aren't huge, its enough to be annoying and I'd like to return to my pre-baby figure. I work out a ton, boobs are always spilling out and I'm self... READ MORE

After months of jumping through hoops for insurance to cover, I finally had my breast reduction on 8/11/16. I couldn't have imagined this new body and life. While the recovery is anything but mild, it is 100% worth it! I would encourage anyone interested to pursue this option for a better life.... READ MORE

I realize I can't have perfect breasts, but my wish was to come close. I wanted to be smaller (was DD/DDD) and the reduction took away a lot of my neck pain. BUT.. right side 1 cup bigger than left, aerolas did not match, and too much fat on the sides. Today was my correction. The pictures I'm... READ MORE

Hello Dolls! After several years of research, I have decided to get a breast reduction/lift. After having my child my body changed drastically, with my breast taking the largest hit. I found myself at a 36G (DDDD) with back pain and no confidence. I am very young woman and desperately... READ MORE

My breasts have given me pain and impacted my self-esteem since puberty. I could go through the list of grievances but they are all the same as everyone else here, so I won't bother, except for this one. I got my boobs the summer before 7th grade. This was 1980, and it so happened that tube tops... READ MORE

Okay so ... It's been a week since I decided to have my lift. After 4 babies, the girls seem depressed ????. I have wanted this for years and now Friday is my pre-op visit. I can't believe it's happening. How did you ladies deal with the anxiety? I am just two weeks away from my lift/Lipo and... READ MORE

My large breasts have hindered my life for long enough. I have random sharp pains in my neck, back and shoulders several times a day. I can't do anything without wearing a bra. My breasts get in the way of everything. I have to 'adjust' them just to comfortably take a relaxing bath. I love... READ MORE

Hi, So I've been lurking here several years(!) and nearly went through with the surgery in the past, but for various reasons it all fell apart. I have been suffering with Fibrocystic Breast Disease and extreme cyclic mastalgia for 20 years now. Way back in 1997, my breast surgeon recommended... READ MORE

I've always been the "girl with big boobs" and since I was in 8th grade, I always get comments and I've even been called "Brandi boobs". Well in August that finally gets to change! I found out yesterday I was approved at 100% for my breast reduction, and was able to schedule my surgery. I am... 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

After years of waiting for insurance approval I am officially approved and on the scheduled. I finally got a call back today to start the process.

I am 28 years old and I've considered getting a breast reduction for maybe 10 years now. Fear always talked me out of it. I've had chronic back and neck pains my entire life. I am also a hairdresser so you can imagine how much more of a strain that was! I finally got to a point when I realized... READ MORE

I'm at a 42G well a 40G Now, trying to be a 40C! I can't wait to go kayaking and see my feet again when I look down.... 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
