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 have been suffering with large breast since my younger days. I realized I was a bit different from the age of 11 when the older women would tell me that I needed to wear a bra. All I wanted to do was play in the yard with everyone else. Later on In high school I was one of the larger chested... READ MORE

I've never been happy with my breasts. Not even as a teenager. They were never "perky" enough, never "good" enough, never something enough. As I got older they got larger and they started to drop as a result of constant weight loss and weight gain. I considered surgery many years ago but did... READ MORE

Just had my consultation today with my the PS - he was great, he had an amazing personality and made me get over my anxiety about showing him my much too large breasts that not even my husband sees! I was in and out in no time and a perfect candidate for the reduction. He said I would go from a... READ MORE

Since I was ten years old I had always been extremely chesty, especially for my small frame. This past summer it became unbearable and I could no longer fit into bras sold at normal stores. I went to get a consultation just on a whim and found out that my insurance would cover the whole surgery.... READ MORE

I believe I am the typical patient in need of a breast reduction. I've been getting attention ever since I was in middle school about my large breast. I have also always felt I was never meant to have large breast. I'm not a shy or introverted person my style choice just didn't fit the way my... READ MORE

Since I was 9 years old I started growing breasts by the time I was 11 I was a DD. Right about the time I started secondary school, years of wearing baggy jumpers and constantly crossing my arms didn't conceal them for much longer. Bra fittings were a nightmare at my age, every fitter would... READ MORE

I just turned 40 and figured it was time I deserved a little bit of a break from the pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. I've always been heavy chested. I, like many others on this site, have been dealing with the awkward discomfort of larger than usual breast for as long as I can remember;... READ MORE

I am a type 2 Diabetic that needed to loose weight, I started to drop weight and automatically thought my breast would also go down in size but was I wrong, so just over 12 months of pain in my back, neck and shoulders my GP sent me to Plastic Surgeon DR Papadopoulos and I haven't looked back,...

My son was born in November 2007, following breastfeeding him I never went below a 34DD, my daughter was... READ MORE

Today is the big day. I am very nervous, happy, scared all at one time. I love working out, but have to wear 2 sports bras when I do. The indentations on my shoulders hurt and my lower back has started to hurt more lately. Thank god after going to many private plastic surgeons, one suggested... READ MORE

After researching and 10 years of contemplation, I'm glad I went to Dr. Leftkowitz! He walked me through the procedure from the first consultation until the last of my follow ups. His professionalism cannot be compared and am looking forward to another procedure, knowing that I will love those... READ MORE

My surgery is a week away, I've been ready for this for 20 years. Insurance covering 100%. Ready to be rid of the neck pain and able to exercise more aggressively-- without chafing and sores from rubbing skin. Worried about recovering at home with 4 kids over Christmas break. Any concrete... READ MORE

Hello, my name is Jackie and I am 45 years old. I would like to share my experience with my breast reduction and lift surgery that I had on April 9th, 2015. Before surgery, I was wearing a 36H/I bra. Finding a bra that fit right and was comfortable never existed. I always had neck and... READ MORE

I've been dreaming of this day since 6th grade when I moved into a size C cup before middle school was over I was spilling out of DD bras. I started going to Lane Bryant for bras and having them taken in around the band to get the right fit. I am the first in my family to go through with the... READ MORE
