5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

44 Years Old, Have Been Dreaming of Breast Reduction for a Very Long Time! - Edina, MN

I had kids on the late side and really wanted to breast feed, so the reduction got put off for a long time. After my last baby, I wanted to get down to a healthy weight before the surgery...but it wasn't happening, and I didn't lose any breast tissue once I stopped breastfeeding. My sister told me that I should just do it, and the timing was right. I scheduled a couple of consultations, and...

Breast Reduction & Abdomen Lipo - 36 Y/o 2 Kids (& Done!) 36DDD 154 Lbs. 5'2" Hypothyroidism

I will never forget buying my 1st bra with my mom just after turning 12 y/o. By high school graduation I was a full 32 C (and 2" taller than I am now). When I hit 22 y/o my thyroid quit working, the weight started coming on, I couldn't get enough sleep, and I was a bitch in heels. I was diagnosed with manic depression & Hashimoto's Disease (Hypothyroidism). After 14 yrs of the ups & downs...

Feeling the Relief of Not Lugging Around 32G's! - Minneapolis, MN

I am hoping to feel relief from my neck, shoulder and upper back pain. I've considered this surgery for years and only now got up the nerve, because my 21 year old daughter is having it. I am extremely nervous and worried about all of the things most people having surgery worry about. Being put under, complications, infections and not being pleased with the end result. Yesterday I was able...

24 Years Old with Pain and Discomfort - Edina, MN

My family has referred to the generally large breast size on my mother's side of the family as "The Family Curse". There are 4 females in my mom's generation and 10 female cousins in my generation. Of these 14 women, I am the third to have a breast reduction (One aunt did as well, but it was because of breast cancer). I finally decided to go through with the procedure when a good client of...

Breast Reduction Review - Edina, MN

I'm 35 years old, one child, size 12, with a 36H bra size. Not only were they huge, the right breast was significantly larger than the left, i had overly large stretched out areolas, and they were saggy and hung straight down. Due to the physical problems of having large breasts, my insurance covered the surgery. I will continue to update this with more photos. Still having a lot of pain,...
