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.

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

Greetings to all who come and read my introduction i'm glad you're here accompanying me through my journey.

My BR is already scheduled for July. It makes me happy because it is real now. I began to prepare myself for this surgery back in January of last year. I have completed the chiropractor's 3 months routine hoping that Cigna would cover the surgery. I was very upset when I found that Cigna... READ MORE

I have a small frame, so carrying around such large breasts has been a huge burden. I'm pretty athletic, I love backpacking, running swimming ect. And having such large breasts has been a huge pain. I went to breastlink to get a small lump I found biopsyed. It ended up being non cancerous, but... READ MORE

Dr. Webb is an amazing doctor. He made me feel comfortable and secure. If the rating scale was 1-10, I would give him a 10. Because of God he is that good. Never stop using your gifts. You are the man. My cup size was a G, so Doctor Webb went in and reduce my cup size to an C cup. He... READ MORE

After years of wishing I had smaller breasts I am finally taking the plunge. I am 38DD which is big but not over the top. I just want a nice modest, small C so I can wear clothes that fit!!! I am so tired of buttons straining while too loose around the body. I am also getting my hooded... READ MORE

Being super mom you really don't get a chance to really review your body until tragic strike's and that's what happen, neck and back pains!!! The worst, and all for overly large breast that was once beautiful but definitely needed special attention ASAP, so I search and that's when I found Dr.... READ MORE

My initial experience with Dr. Shell was wonderful, all the way up to surgery. After surgery my stitches came open. I went to Dr Shell's office the very same day. He didn't sew up the open place but put a sterile strip over it. That didn't hold it together. After a few days an infection set in.... READ MORE

I had my consultation with Dr. Kumar about a month ago. My insurance has approved my surgery and I am scheduled for surgery on June 6. I have struggled with back, and shoulder pain for years, and I think that it's time to do something about it. I'm both anxious and excited. There were no... READ MORE

I have had large breasts for the past 15 years. When I graduated from high school, I was a C cup. I remember coming home the summer after freshmen year of college and people asking me if I had a boob job...I knew I had gained a bit of weight (the proverbial freshman 15), but it hadn't occurred...

I'm going to try to write in order, as... READ MORE
