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 ›

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

I taught dance for many years, now I love Zumba, yoga, started group walking and step dancing, which is tap, and my back is always sore and my hot flashes are the worst! I'm so uncomfortable, I just want some relief. I decided to lose a little weight at the beginning of this journey so my pre... 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

I can't remember a time that I didn't have large breasts. In grade 8 I was already a ddd cup. I had been wearing the wrong bra for such a long time, that I didn't even know what proper meant. I had been wearing a ddd from grade 8 all the way up to grade 12. I didn't want to know my size anymore.... READ MORE

I started thinking about getting a breast reduction last fall but at the time decided against it because I was worried about losing my ability to breastfeed in the future but in May of this year I decided to go for it for my self esteem and to help my...

Going through many consultations with several surgeons, Dr. Reish's bio was nothing less than remarkable. Wherever I went, I was always asked, "oh my god, are those real? Do they hurt? You're boobs are out" Blah, blah, blah. I hated those questions. Fitting in shirts, dresses and bathing suits... READ MORE

Once I turned 11 my boobs grew and didn't stop. I went from nothing to a D cup in no time. Because of the teasing of certain family members I have always felt a deep shame and embarrassment over my large boobs. I have always done things to try and diminish them, to no avail. They are the thing... READ MORE

Okay ladies I am starting a new review because I could not change my doctor on the old one. In my original review I had started 2 years ago trying to get a breast reduction and was denied by Anthem BlueCross BlueShield. Fast forward to May of 2015 I decided to do the breast reduction again and... READ MORE

More than anything, I would like to not have the constant pulling of my neck and shoulders. I would like to run and dance and jump without being completely self-conscious about the flopping display. I want someone to notice my brown eyes first, not my big boobs. After experiencing the true... READ MORE

Motivation: My breast were always pretty large for my age growing up. For the last 4 or 5 years I began to notice how much harder it was becoming for me to run or simply exercise in general. I also had a hard time finding button-ups that would fit properly and button on my breast area. I notice... READ MORE

Part One - Pre-Trip Due to back pain, shoulder grooves, headaches, jaw pain, not too mention the bouncing regardless of wearing two sports bras at the same time, etc., I had wanted a breast reduction for many years (I'm in my mid-50s).
