WORTH IT RATING 3,495 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 ›

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.
