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'm new here, so hello to everyone! I had a BR with lift on 12/21/15. I'm 2 weeks post op today. Went back to work today, I'm a nurse. I must say, the first couple days post op were hell. It got better and a little easier each day after. Tomorrow is my second post op visit, I believe they are... READ MORE

6 weeks post op and the scars and bruising are very present still. I had necrosis of both nipples at 4 weeks post op and panicked, so I consulted a new surgeon. The experience has so far been a very painful and unpleasant one. Swelling has drastically increased, right nipple is going darker... READ MORE

At the moment, I'm not 100% sure what size my breasts are. I'm a UK size 10 with a side of 'squished in boobs' in a lot of clothing. I have bras that range from 32ff to 34ff (some 34f's, 34e's). I'm not entirely convinced any of them fit me properly but the closest (34ff) digs in at the front of... READ MORE

I have read many of the reasons why the ladies on this platform decided to have their breast reduction surgery and I can find myself in each and every one of them. It was because of the courageous messages that I read here that finally allowed me to take that last step. So thank you ladies. I... READ MORE

Hello Ladies, I never thought this would materialize but it has. I am on the other side of the BR hill. My story is basically the same. I've always had large breasts, but when I reached age 40 they took a trip south and never returned. I heard about Dr Marc Schneider through an ex boyfriend. ... READ MORE

Scarring is minimal and way less than I expected. I'm so glad Dr. Moore decided to do the vertical procedure so I would not have the scar underneath. I am very excited with the results. The more it heals, the better it looks and feels. Surgery wasn't bad at all and the pain was tolerable with... READ MORE

My family physician told me to lose some weight in order to relieve my neck/shoulder pain. I've lost 60lbs (so far) but my breasts went from a 42DDD to a 38G/H (one breast a whole cup size larger). Getting nervous and excited. I have a high tolerance for pain and don't want to be in pain... READ MORE

So admittedly I was an overweight teenager, therefore by age 16 I was double F cup, by early 20's they grew to HH cup and I hated them! After losing 2 stone and none of it came off my chest, I decided to do what I had been thinking about for 10 years, went to my GP about a reduction. Anyone from... READ MORE

I saw Dr Lim for a breast reduction and tummy tuck after having 5 children with the last child just 5 yrs ago, and then natural 100+ lb weight loss. I've had shoulder pain and back pain due to breast and body size for years. I'm 5'9 and starting weight at beginning was 323 lbs. lost naturally... READ MORE

Hi guys, this forum has been a life saver. Being able to see real life results from women going through the same journey as me all across the world is pure inspiration. I am currently a 40j but I hopefully wanna go down to a full C or small D. I can't remember a time when I wasn't self... READ 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

Hi Ladies.. I have finally decided to get a Breast Reduction. I'm am so tired of carrying heavy boobs.. I had spoken with my family care physician over the past few years about my breast. I thought if I diet and exercise that would help my breasts get smaller..That may work for some but it... READ MORE

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

Tomorrow morning I have an appointment for a consult for a breast reduction. I really hope my insurance will cover it without problems. This is my third time trying to get a reduction. The first time was 21 years ago (military deployment interfered), and the second was 6 years ago (got... READ MORE

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

Age: 20 Height: 174cm / 5'8 Weight; 88kg / 194lb After getting boobs extremely early they'd always been part of who I was. When I was twelve at my primary school formal I was already an Australian 12C (pictured below). At twenty I was measured as a 12J or 10K and had to buy speciality bras... 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. I like their price, because am not sure if my insurance will approve, even tho I have an awesome blue cross blue shield insurance,... READ MORE
