WORTH IT RATING 3,500 reviews over 24 months

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 ›

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

So its convienent for me! Im a 36DDD and going down to a B (hopefully). I want to be braless and free! I never... 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 am 23 years old and currently at 32KK. 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

First of all, let me introduce myself to all you wonderful and helpful BR-Sisters. For three more days I am 46 years old and I live with a wonderful husband and two cats in Frankfurt, Germany. We don’t have kids. I am 1,78m (converted 5’10“) and weigh about 80kg (converted 176lbs). My bra... 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

I have been looking through this site for answers and it seems I need to just post and ask for the answers I am looking for. This is a wonderful site, but posting these kind of pics are not easy, but here goes. I am 51 5' 7", and 175. I have three kids and nursed them all. Like many of you I... 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). After trying with two difference insurance companies, I... READ MORE

I had a BR done in 1981 by Dr. Marcia Fitzpatrick at 25, when I went from 34DD to 34B. My boobs held up for 25+ years, even with a 40-pound weight gain in pregnancy, but menopause did them in. Back to 32DDD at age 59. Sigh. I often thought about repeat surgery and checked out loads of online... READ MORE

First of all, a big thank you to all of the women on this site who post their experiences, it's given me so much courage to go through with this procedure! Tomorrow is my big day, so I decided to do an initial post today with some before photos. BACKGROUND & WHY I CHOSE TO GET THIS... READ MORE

Okay, so I been lurking on RS for the last year or so. I'm 5'5 and weight 212. I'm currently wearing a 38DDD but I know I'm bigger than that as the bra is too small but I refuse to buy anymore bra as these bad boys need to go. So I decided I need a breast reduction. I seen Dr. Lawrence Draper on... READ MORE

Let me start by saying GO FOR IT! You won't regret it! I always had a large chest and slender body frame....but no one could see my body because it was hidden beneath my Dolly Parton size my largest I was a tremendous FF/G. Then as I got older and had 3 children, my breast fluctuated... READ MORE

Ever since I can remember, I have had very large breasts and knew that I would, someday, end up getting a BR. About four years ago, I went to a very good PS in SF for a consultation. They, unfortunately, were not willing to work with me on having my insurance cover the cost. At that time, there... READ MORE

My journey with being "well endowed" is quite similar to some of the other post found here on the site. Except my journey with my "Wonder twins" began as a late blossomer, I was flat chested up until the age of 13 or 14 years old. My brother used to tease me by calling me names like "Bookman"...
