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 was a late bloomer, but when I finally did bloom, I bloomed hard. The last time I was measured, I was a 34/36 H, which is the size bra I am wearing in the pictures, but I believe I am bigger than that now due to changes in birth control. I very rarely wear underwire bras because they are so... READ MORE

Hello everyone! I have a consultation scheduled for a month from now. My motivation for getting a reduction mostly stems from being in pain and discomfort every day. I'm not %100 sure it's from the weight of my breasts but after going from doctor to doctor and specialist to specialist and... READ MORE

I got approved the same day for my surgery and was scheduled to have it the next week but I got scared and moved the date to give me more time to think about it. I should have done this years ago. I was a 40DDD and I should end up around a C. I love the results so far. Today makes 2 weeks and my... READ MORE

I'm 5'2, 34DD & 127lbs. I'm tired of back pains and getting depressed every time I attempt at shopping for things for the upper body. I'm just super annoyed with my boobs and want them gone. Most of them at least. I do everything in a bra, my boobs are almost always tender. I only take a bra off... READ MORE

Dr. Song is a total pro. He is precise, very professional, gentle, kind, and easy on the eyes. He texts back after hours within seconds. His assistant Alanka, is such a sweetheart and they both made me feel comfortable in such an awkward situation. My breasts are near perfect now and the contour... READ MORE

July 24 is the day. What am I most looking forward to? The heaviness to be gone, the strain on my neck and upper back, to be rid of the under boob sweat, itching, rashes, gouges on my shoulders. Ready to fit into a button down shirt that isn't two sizes bigger than what the rest of me needs,... READ MORE

Back-story: Where to begin? Started this journey at age 7 when my parents took me to the doctor to ask if there was anything they could do to make sure I grew breasts.... I grew up hearing (from my Dad) that my mother's were too small and they wanted better for me.... am I the only one who sees... READ MORE

Hello I'm interested in getting a breast reduction. I'm 5'4 weigh 155 lbs and have a breast size of 34DD. I've went to therapy twice within a 3 year period for a 6 month period treating areas such as my neck and back. I'm looking to have this procedure done through my insurance to which I have...

All my life I grew up completely insecure and with no self confidence. I was a FFF at the time of my surgery. I couldn't wear normal bras, bathing suits, shirts, and it was difficult to shop. When I went into my first consultation with Dr. Anastasatos we immediately clicked, and he made me feel... READ MORE

Okay Ladies, I have scoured this site long enough. Now its time for me to share. I have been heavy -chested since I was about 11 years old. I am currently a 38I and would love, love, love to be somewhere around a "C" cup. I am not sure if that is even possible. I made an appointment for a... READ MORE

Hello wonderful ladies! I absolutely love this site and reading everyone's journey to boobs happiness. I am 27, no children, 5' 5 1/2 (I'm 5'10 1 /2 in my head lol) and my breast are a 34 DDD/E. I am not petite but I do have a small frame for the size breast that I have. I've always had big... READ MORE

I am a 65 yo female with size 36 F/G boobs. At least that is the size I wear in Soma and Wolcott bras....Well, the left is a g and the right is a small f... Before menopause I was a C/D...loved most aspects of menopause... hate the boob growth part. I started looking into breast reduction... READ MORE

Mine is pretty much the same story as everyone else one this forum. I developed early and have had large breast for most of my life. Unlike many of the other women on this site, I didn't hate them until my 40's. I had great boobs always around a 32 D or DD depending on weight gain or loss. ... READ MORE

Hello All, I am a week out of surgery and can't really say yet whether I'm pleased. I wasn't a very busty woman to begin with yet; after babies my breast "swung low sweet chariot" and I needed a change. My left breast was about a size larger than my right because I nursed mostly via my... READ MORE

I can't begin to thank all you wonderful ladies for writing reviews and relating your stories on realself, it's been so good to know I'm not alone in the journey to smaller, more appropriately sized breasts! Similar to many of you, I developed early, at 11 I outgrew my training bra by leaps... READ MORE

Wow.. Where to start.. I have been wanting a breast reduction for about 38 years. I have always had large breast for as long as I can remember. Right now I am a 40DD and cannot wait for the BR date to be here. My dream size would be full B/ small C. My motivation for the procedure is to... READ MORE

Have had big breast since 6th grade they just grew overnight I guess... anyway I didn't really think anything of my breast being big until people made comments about them in middle school.. since then people would always joke about them leaving me depressed. Getting a breast reduction has been... READ MORE

Like so many of you I have back pain, tension especially across my neck and shoulders, some difficulty breathing, and all the other things that come with being "blessed" (I say that sarcastically of course). I've been seeking a breast reduction since 2012 and recently had my consultation with Dr... READ MORE

I'm so glad I found this site! It's been so helpful already!! As many of you have said, I developed very early and since then have endured the comments and the jokes and having to fork over much more money for a bra than those within the "normal sizes". I always wondered whether guys were... READ MORE

Just want to be smaller , pain free and able to fit clothes. Have been big breasted since about 18. Increasing after each child. Have had MRIs on neck and back. Disc problems I'm sure due to bad posture. Won't excerise any more as I always end up with pulled muscles and back pain. Weight has... READ MORE
