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.

To be honest I wasn't going to write a review until I noticed no one had breast as large as mine. I wanted to put my voice out there so I could connect with women who have my issue. my bra size I wear is a 40 n, however; a 40 n is too small. I have back spasms that hurt so much it causes me to...

Hello everybody, i am new to all this but came across the site when googling various questions on breast reduction! I am 25 years old and have had big boobs for as long as i can remember. Currently a size 30G and never been much smaller. One of my earliest memories being at school aged about... READ MORE

I never thought of writing a review before but this website has helped me so much with pre op anxiety I figured I should contribute. I first tried to get preappeoval for a reduction 7 years ago at age 22. The dr said they weren't large enough and didn't even attempt to submit to insurance. I... READ MORE

Growing up it was my brother, myself and my dad. For the majority of my pubescent years my dad was a single dad. I was a Tom boy for as long as I could remember. One day I was flat chested and the next I woke up with a C cup. From there, things just got worse. I grew 2 cup sizes in 6 months! As... READ MORE

I've always had big breasts. I vaguely remember being made fun of in 5th grade and being a full C cup by 6th grade. In high school I was a D/DD and they really got in the way for sports. I am an introvert so the extra attention was not ever wanted, but I got it anyway. You simply cannot be... READ MORE

Am in Prague where it costs less than half of the cost of surgery in England, with a much smaller risk of post_op infection. Am waiting for the operation which will be this afternoon 29th not 30th. We are behind USA time. Very excited. Been wanting this for so many years. 40 in far... READ MORE

I have been big breasted since I was about 23. In the past 15 or so years it has gotten unbearable. Sleeping, eating, breathing, exercising, cleaning the house, you name it, everything has its limitations. I am currently bulging out of a 44H on my right and on my left not quite filling it...

After wanting it since puberty, I have finally decided to pursue getting a breast reduction. I'm ready to end the years of emotional and physical pain. Although I measure 32G or bigger, I wear 36dd/ddd bras which fit comfortably enough but cannot make up for that my chest is far too big for my... READ MORE

Like everyone else, I have dealt with large breasts since middle school. I am currently 31, 5'7", 167 lbs and a 32HH. Despite gaining and losing weight, the breast size has really never changed so about six months ago I began the process of getting insurance approval. Referrals, four months of... READ MORE

I can't begin to explain the level of satisfaction, joy, and confidence that Dr. Krau has given me. So I had my initial consultation with Dr. Krau back in Sept. 2015. Of course, I checked my options with other surgeons, but my gut and my heart told me to go with Dr. Krau (aside from the fact... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I am 53, have lost 110 lbs in the past 2 years, and my breasts didn't really shrink all that much with the weight loss. I knew they probably wouldn't. I have been busty since puberty, more so after childbirth. My pre surgery bra size was 36J. Looking at them now, I am expecting 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

Hey dolls! Man I've been waiting a LONG time for this. I started developing breasts when i was 9-10 years old. By the time I was 13 I was already a 38C. I was always known for having the biggest breasts in school or among friends. I was sexualized at a very young age, mainly by men old... READ MORE

My surgery is a little over a week away and I am so nervous. This journey has been such a long and slow process. I've been trying to have my breast reduced since January of 2015. As of April 19th 2016 I have been approved. Thank goodness! I hope to come out of this as a C cup at least. I just... READ MORE

Okay so Ive been looking in this website for quite awile now. All the BR reviews on this website have motivated and encouraged me to finally consider surgery :) So I'm finally deciding to be brave and start making moves to have a breast reduction! I am 5'2, weigh 170 ILBS, and am 19 years old.... READ MORE

I finally decided to get a much needed breast reduction. I go into surgery this Wednesday 20th april with Dr. Dean White in Melbourne. I'm so excited and nervous. I have been large breasted for many years. I am 58cms tall and my breast size is 10G. My back is always in pain, i have a bad... READ MORE

I currently wear a 40 H bra. I know I need a bigger size but I refuse to buy an even bigger bra. I've had 3 consultations. The 1st consultation was with Dr. Michael Obeng located in Beverly Hills. I liked the office and staff. I was also interested in lipo or a TT. Dr. Obeng suggested lipo... READ MORE

I had a breast reduction almost one year ago(23april2015). I went from a size 34KK to a 34D, my surgeon took off 10lbs. I was 18 when I had the surgery and it is honestly one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I'm more than happy to answer any questions about the process pre,... READ MORE

First off let me just say how happy I am that I found this site. Everyone on here seems so friendly and helpful, it's such a nice community! Now, I haven't gotten the procedure done yet. But it's only two weeks away, with my pre-op appointment later today! I am beyond excited. I... READ MORE

Honestly I don't think it has set in yet. I am very excited but it still does not seem like it is happening. Since I could remember I've had very large breast. I've always had my bras custom made and my clothes tailored to fit me. My mother and grandmother also had large breast and taught me how... READ MORE
