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 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

Today I had my last appointment with my doctor prior to my surgery on Friday! I have to say, he and his staff have been SO accommodating of me. I'll back up and tell my story.

Hi, I had my breast reduction done on the 25th of june. I had my dressings removed today and didn't look at my breasts until I got home. The breast on the right seems to be ok but the right looks abnormal I'm very worried about this. I have tried looking at a lot of photos here to compare... READ MORE

One week to go! I have been on this site for over a year and it's finally my turn! I have read, laughed, and commented and just love all your stories!!

Today, I met with Dr. Pacella for a consultation on a breast reduction. His staff emailed me the paperwork needed for my appointment prior to the appointment which I liked because then I had it all ready for them upon my arrival. When I arrived for my appointment the staff were friendly and I... READ MORE

My back was hurting very much that it was hard to exercise. I knew a friend who had a reduction performed by Dr. Namen so I decided to go there. I am defiantly satisfied with the size however not with the fat that was not removed on the sides. It clearly sticks out and is uncomfortable with some... READ MORE

My story is similar to many others' I have read here. I was a C cup in 7th grade, and I remember forgetting to put on a bra one morning and crying when I got home from school, because I had felt so gross all day. By the time I was 15, I was DDD, and I knew that I was going to get a reduction. It... READ MORE

Heading to Miami because these doctors here in Maryland are outrageous with their prices. Some of their works are just too average for me. Hope Spectrum can help me.

Hello all! My surgery date is fast approaching and I thought this day would never come. It was a battle trying to get insurance to cover it, even though I have an extensive medical history with back pain and neck issues, also chronic headaches. 4 months later they gave in and I'm covered!

After hating my breasts for more than 20 years I am finally doing something about it! This time tomorrow I will be post-op! I am so excited and also very apprehensive about the whole thing!

I'm 25 years old, and I've been considering a breast reduction since I was 17. I'm finally on a surgery wait list (I live in Canada) and hoping to have the surgery this summer.
