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 ›

Met my surgeon last year in April, without any hesitation he said I was a great candidate for a reduction. I had already had back surgery from lugging around heavy breasts. With each pregnancy they got bigger. With three kids I went from a C cup to a G cup. Had surgery on January 14 2016....so... READ MORE

I have severe back, shoulder and neck pain from overly large breasts. I've had this problem since puberty. I've also had issues finding bras that fit me well since my breasts are out of proportion and one is a couple cup sizes larger than the other. I am pretty sure my skeleton has permanent... READ MORE

I am a 40 year old married mom of 2 kids (12 & 8) and have been in remission from Crohn's Disease for almost 3 years now. When I was very sick, my weight went as low as 109. Currently I cannot get the scale lower than 170 lbs on my 5' 5" frame. I believe it is partly due to my less active... READ MORE

Like many of you, I developed breasts very quickly at the age of nine and they've been growing ever since. I started to get migraines and back pain as well as huge self esteem issues. I had my surgery on Thursday and so far I'm delighted! The pain was more than I expected, but I think it has to... READ MORE
