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. The areola might also be reduced if it had been stretched out due to the size of the breast. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

I developed in 7th grade and endured middle school teasing like being called "big boob Bennett" or Bessie the Cow. I was constantly groped and bra snapped through high school and the low point came when after waiting for an amusement park ride for nearly an hour, I was kicked off and made to... READ MORE

Hi, I'm 46 y/o, 34GG (very dense). Not a lot of droop (no kids) 5'2 160 lbs.

I am a 26 year old nurse with size 40G breast. I come from a family of full bust women, so I pretty much knew what to expect as far as my development was concerned.

I am 20 years old just under 5 feet tall and wear a DD, and I decided I am going to get a breast lift. Everyone I know believes I am a little young to be getting a lift now but I think it is the perfect time. I remember in grade 6 all the little boys wanted to be my friend because I seemed to...

I had a breast reduction done by Dr. Tiwari 7 days ago due to the daily neck/back pain. The pain was constant, did not allow me to live a normal life, and gave me headaches that would not stop. He made me feel safe and comfortable. He made sure again and again that I understood the process, he... READ MORE

I was tired of back & neck pain. Also, skin tags & rashes. Decision took years! No regrets. When I met my PS I felt very comfortable and knew that he understood what I wanted. My advice visit a few doctors and select the one that you feel trust. See patient pics/testimonials. Don't feel shy... READ MORE

One of the best things I've done for myself. I can breathe, and my neck and back pain are so much less. And even though I didn't get this surgery for the aesthetics, I was so pleased during my reveal at my doctor's office today. I don't think they were this pretty when I was 15! I can see why...

So basically I did the research went through a whole heap of doctor on realself.com. Based on my research it boiled down to one exceptional doctor. Dr. Robert Kraft , I went to the conciliation and it was okay . My expectation was realistic according to him. Except for one thing I got nipple... READ MORE

Well I wanted to wait to write a review until I was approved for a reduction, and after calling my insurance I was!! I think it took about three weeks from initial consult to approval from BCBS of Michigan. But anyways... About me; I am 35, no kids, non smoker/very lite... READ MORE

Hello! My surgery is now less than a week away. I've been stalking this site for so many months now, and I've finally gotten up the courage to do this! I'm 23 years old, 123 lbs, at 5'2", with 32DDD.. no kids. I've been pretty much steady at this weight and size for just about 6 years, though... READ MORE

Like most other woman who have had breast reduction surgery, I'm thrilled! I've been suffering with neck, back and shoulder pain for years, not to mention my self-esteem. I was always compensating for my heavy breasts. I felt like I was alway hunching over. Maybe I was being naive, but I wasn't... READ MORE

I am undergoing breast reduction surgery on Thursday Jan 28th 2016. I have never undergone surgery and I am pretty active. I recently lost 20 pounds and I enjoy exercising so I am a bit sad to have to recover and not being able to be as mobile as I usually am. I have TERRIBLE back and neck pain... READ MORE

For years my back and neck has killed me. Body issues and self confidence have been a problem along with people believing that I am a slu*. Psychologically it's been difficult on me. So hopefully, with this surgery those problems will be resolved! I wanted to go down to a 32C, but insurance has... READ MORE

This is an informative site from the prospective of the patient. All the photos are helpful and everyone seems so happy about the choice they've made without having unreal expectations. It's like who cares about the scars it's the size that counts. I haven't seen any procedures like mine but... READ MORE

Diagnosed with breast hypertrophy -- no amount of losing weight would reduce my girls despite a lifetime of struggling. Menopause was the last straw. My girls bloomed to a magnificent E/F and then dropped, despite my 5'5 frame and relatively active lifesylte. The sheer weight of my chest was... READ MORE
