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 ›

Like many of you, I developed breasts very quickly at the age of nine and they've been growing ever since. I started to get migraines and back pain as well as huge self esteem issues. I had my surgery on Thursday and so far I'm delighted! The pain was more than I expected, but I think it has to... READ MORE

My insurance has had me on a limb since Febuary 7,2016. It's now about to be June.

I have been researching for a couple of years now and finally very recently did it. My doctor and all the staff have been amazing thus far. The pain has been way less than I anticipated which is great, the most painful part so far was the drain removal which came out only 2-3 days after the... READ MORE

44 JJ looking to decrease. I'm overweight, but it is difficult to exercise with supersize breasts in the way. Insurance approved surgery with documentation of back pain, physical therapy not working, deep groves in shoulders, etc. I'm excited and scared author same time. I've been quite large... READ MORE

I have been contemplating a BR for many years, but don't like pain, so couldn't make the decision to have the surgery. After dealing with health issues with my hubby (5 surgeries in a little over a year), I figured if he could do it, so could I. I proceeded to do some research and had a... READ MORE

Okay I know you've all heard this story before - been a D cup since middle school and rocked the E/F's since end of high school. Lost weight, didn't get any smaller. Gained weights, surprisingly didn't change much either! Now I sit at 5'6", ~170# (high end of my weight usually) and a 34E give or... READ MORE

My breast however is quit different. I was a 36DD and only wanted a lift but my insurance would... READ MORE

Hello, I am in total disbelief that my surgery is in 4 days! I am 36 years old and I've been dreaming of a reduction for at least 10 years! I have spent a lot of time just talking about it, rather than working up the courage to actually do it. I am currently a 44H and I am hoping to eventually... READ MORE
