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 ›

My breast size was a 34GG. i hated them! Because they where so big and heavy they just sagged. Finding clothes to fit was a... READ MORE

I've been waiting for a long time and now I'm ready. He was so polite and the staff was so quick on my paper work everything was smooth sailing.

As a young person I never really gave much thought to the size of my breasts. Not until after the age of 24 and having my baby and nursing him. Let's just say they became GIGANTIC! I suffered a pretty bad back injury at work in my 30's and have had several whiplashes in my 20's. I'm no... READ MORE

The summer after 5th grade, I'm outside playing. Enjoying running around my dad's truck with the other kids. I was wearing one of my favorite halter jumpsuits with blue trim. Suddenly my dad calls me over and tells me I need to put something else on and can no longer wear that outfit. That was... READ MORE

I had my consultation with Dr. Kumar about a month ago. My insurance has approved my surgery and I am scheduled for surgery on June 6. I have struggled with back, and shoulder pain for years, and I think that it's time to do something about it. I'm both anxious and excited. There were no... READ MORE

I'm new here, so hello to everyone! I had a BR with lift on 12/21/15. I'm 2 weeks post op today. Went back to work today, I'm a nurse. I must say, the first couple days post op were hell. It got better and a little easier each day after. Tomorrow is my second post op visit, I believe they are... READ MORE

6 weeks post op and the scars and bruising are very present still. I had necrosis of both nipples at 4 weeks post op and panicked, so I consulted a new surgeon. The experience has so far been a very painful and unpleasant one. Swelling has drastically increased, right nipple is going darker... READ MORE

At the moment, I'm not 100% sure what size my breasts are. I'm a UK size 10 with a side of 'squished in boobs' in a lot of clothing. I have bras that range from 32ff to 34ff (some 34f's, 34e's). I'm not entirely convinced any of them fit me properly but the closest (34ff) digs in at the front of... READ MORE

I have read many of the reasons why the ladies on this platform decided to have their breast reduction surgery and I can find myself in each and every one of them. It was because of the courageous messages that I read here that finally allowed me to take that last step. So thank you ladies. I... READ MORE

Hello Ladies, I never thought this would materialize but it has. I am on the other side of the BR hill. My story is basically the same. I've always had large breasts, but when I reached age 40 they took a trip south and never returned. I heard about Dr Marc Schneider through an ex boyfriend. ... READ MORE

Scarring is minimal and way less than I expected. I'm so glad Dr. Moore decided to do the vertical procedure so I would not have the scar underneath. I am very excited with the results. The more it heals, the better it looks and feels. Surgery wasn't bad at all and the pain was tolerable with... READ MORE

My family physician told me to lose some weight in order to relieve my neck/shoulder pain. I've lost 60lbs (so far) but my breasts went from a 42DDD to a 38G/H (one breast a whole cup size larger). Getting nervous and excited. I have a high tolerance for pain and don't want to be in pain... READ MORE

So admittedly I was an overweight teenager, therefore by age 16 I was double F cup, by early 20's they grew to HH cup and I hated them! After losing 2 stone and none of it came off my chest, I decided to do what I had been thinking about for 10 years, went to my GP about a reduction. Anyone from... READ MORE

I saw Dr Lim for a breast reduction and tummy tuck after having 5 children with the last child just 5 yrs ago, and then natural 100+ lb weight loss. I've had shoulder pain and back pain due to breast and body size for years. I'm 5'9 and starting weight at beginning was 323 lbs. lost naturally... READ MORE

Hi guys, this forum has been a life saver. Being able to see real life results from women going through the same journey as me all across the world is pure inspiration. I am currently a 40j but I hopefully wanna go down to a full C or small D. I can't remember a time when I wasn't self... READ MORE

After many years of living with pain caused by the 36DDD girls, I finally got my insurance's approval to go through with the breast reduction. I couldn't have been more excited to finally be given the chance to do it. My breasts started developing when I was in about 5th grade. They were pretty... READ MORE

I always had big breasts. I started growing them when I was in 3rd grade! Like most of the peoples stories I had back pain and lack of confidence. I also wanted to find clothes that would fit and not have to buy the expensive granny bras. I was just so tired of planning an outfit around my... READ MORE

Ever since I got the surgery I have been much more confident with how I look. I am able to buy bathing suits now, and wear t-shirts that actually fit me. The surgery was completely worth it. The pain afterwards was actually fairly minimal. I would recommend this surgery to anyone struggling with... READ MORE
