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 am a 25 y/o hairstylist. I have had large breasts since 7th grade when I came back to school over break and had developed into a large D. From there I kept developing and graduated high school at an F. In the past couple years with a little weight gain, I have topped out at a 38 H. I'm a... READ MORE

I was in 5th grade and was wearing a tube top during the summer and realized everybody was staring at my chest when I realized I was bigger busted than anyone else I knew in my school. It made me uncomfortable as I got involved in sports and had to wear expensive compression bras to stabilize... READ MORE

My breasts developed over night in 6th grade. I went from absolutely nothing to bursting DD, with a 5'3.5" weighing under 100lbs. I was a very athletic child and the massive breasts caused my chronic pain and difficulty participating in my typical athletic activities. After surviving a violent... READ MORE

I have had relatively large breasts every since I first got them. Growing up I could never buy a bra that fitted properly (was using crazy back sizes when I was probably a 30 or less). It is much easier nowadays, I could buy bras online or at bravisimo, but I like the convenience of the local... READ MORE

My story is the same as many other women on this site for this procedure. I started to grow breast pretty early and have always been a large size. I am currently a 40H. I experience daily pain in my back, neck and shoulders. I am always trying to do things to hide my size but of course it... READ MORE

I have had huge boobs my whole life. Not only have they been the source of unwanted attention and ridicule, but also of back, neck, and shoulder pain. As a plus sized woman, it always felt like a cop out to have surgery. Maybe if you just lose weight, it will get better. But I have gained weight... READ MORE

Breast reduction was something I had never really considered as an option until speaking to a friend about it last spring. I am quite active -- bicyclist and musher -- and frankly, my 38DDs get in the way. I saw a PS last month and was delighted to learn my insurance will cover the procedure. Of... READ MORE

Hi RS friends!!!! I just got approved by my insurance and could not be happier! I am currently 5'1", 155 lbs and wear a 36DDD.

My insurance has had me on a limb since Febuary 7,2016. It's now about to be June. They disapproved me the first time because I didn't show that I went to the doctor to complain about my neck or back. Thankful I did since 2013!!! Any who, I am 5'2 145 pounds with size G breast. I have been... READ MORE

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

Hello! So happy to have found this place! And I'd just like to apologize in advance for my English, it's not my native language but I hope you'll understand me, haha. I'm an 18 year old, 180 cm (5'11") girl and have been considering a breast reduction for about 1-2 years now. It was this... READ MORE

One week to go! I have been on this site for over a year and it's finally my turn! I have read, laughed, and commented and just love all your stories!! I started looking at doctors last year and just was so unsure if I wanted to do this (I am afraid of looking off without my chest) and did not... 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

I had my tummy tuck exactly 1 year ago and now I had my breast reduced. I was extremely excited about my tummy tuck but after 5 weeks I popped some internal stitches and have suffered every since. 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

So, after being apart of this community for 2 years and choosing my Dr, after looking at countless stories and reviews, I finally have the money to move forward. I am a 23 year old Black female in the United States, and I'm getting a breast reduction. I have 36DD (prolly bigger, since they're... READ MORE
