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 ›

40yr Old from U.K, Mum of a Crazy Toddler, Lifetime Hater of Boobs :)

Finally took the plunge after turning 40 & wish I'd done this years ago! Main reason I didn't was the cost. I went private as once I'd made the decision I was going for it, it didn't want to wait. Also I didn't know if I'd qualify on the NHS. I was a 34F & after having a baby (went up to... READ MORE

Breast Lift/Reduction: 36DD Hoping for 36B/C - 58, 5'8" 155 Lbs

My story is a little different from others; I wasn't always unhappy with my size. I was 36C until my late 30s, when I had my son. Menopause kicked in around 10 years later. I soon realized there's no "pausing" at all! My boobs grew, my waist expanded, and where'd that BACK fat come from? Now the... READ MORE
