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 ›

Anthem Blue Cross is a yes - changed insurance in January. Quick approval. Now, it's real - and I'm scared. Silly. Just am. Soooo nervous... READ MORE

31/5'4"/230/36J to 42DD! My incredible (to me) journey!

Since I was young, I have been large-chested. At first, I didn't really know what to do with it. Today, I know what to do with it, but I have too much to do WITH. In the past year, I've experienced chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. Other parts of my body suffer as well. I have felt... READ MORE

35 yrs, 1 child, obese, 42N - not sure which amount to list, billed $50,000 or paid $2,438.39

Like so many others, I went from nothing to giant with puberty. As I recall I went from nothing to at least a C. By middle school I couldn't find anything that actually fit, so I'd buy a much larger band size to get a bigger cup, then take it in to fit at the band. Yay for sewing skills. I... READ MORE

Back in 2005 I had a breast lift at the age of 45, after I'd lost about 20 lbs and was left with loose skin, sagging uncomfortable breasts. Even though I told the surgeon I wanted a reduction, she talked me into just a lift, saying she'd move the tissue up to have a "perfect C cup". I liked my... READ MORE

20, 5'0", 34 E/F, No Kids, Constant Pain

Since I was 13 (with breasts smaller than a B) I have experienced extreme rib and back pain with little to no rhyme or reason. As I have gotten older this pain was made worse and more constant by my breast size. I have bounced between a DD and F for 7 years. At my smallest size I was a 30 DD and... READ MORE
