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 ›

Welp, I'm posting for the first time because I am finally approved by OHIP for this surgery. I had my consult back in November and was expecting to have the procedure done before the summer but it took longer than that. I'm terrified of the pain post op, but reading the reviews on here has given... READ MORE

Warning! Extremely long text post. (Sorry everyone!) I remember the moment when it came to my attention that I needed to start wearing bras. I was in the fourth grade, and I was trying on shirts at a clothing store with my mother, and I came out of the dressing room to show her the shirt I... READ MORE

So, hi. Took me a while to decide to join this community but I feel like it's really beneficial / inspirational. I was probably that girl in elementary school all the boys thought about because I was the first girl in the class in a bra. :-/ (that's not exciting). Growing up I was the only... READ MORE

Hi, I came across this site a few months ago and decided I too wanted to document my story. I am really excited because today I set the date of my surgery (Breast Reduction/Lift).

I had always been one of those girls whose boobs you noticed. Not in a good way, but in the way that they were always there. I developed extremely large and saggy breasts at a young age and struggled with my weight. It made going through my teens extremely awkward. I was very self-conscious and... READ MORE

Hey everyone!! So I've been on this site a lot lately, trying to decide if a breast reduction is right for me. All the reviews and before & after pictures have been sooo helpful!

I have had breasts that seem to add weight when I add weight and reduce in size when I loose weight. I used to run 10km but my back gave in to pain I could not explain. Like spasms????. I stopped running and the pounds checked in and my breasts have grown larger. I need them reduced to help my... READ MORE

Breast asymmetry as a teenager led me to have a silicone implant in the left breast at 17yrs. Unfortunately I experienced an abscess and consequently had to have the implant removed. This left considerable scarring on the underside of this breast, which totally distorted the natural shape of... READ MORE

I'm not one of the ladies who hate my breasts. Actually for many years I was quite proud to show them off, but now at almost 40 I'm over it! 5 years ago I was approved for a reduction. A surprise pregnancy stopped me at that time and I've had 2 more children since then. I'm finished with... READ MORE

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
