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 ›

Like a lot of people here, I too have been reading reviews on this site for a while now. I'm now almost to the point of being able to review my own experience of having a breast reduction surgery. My re-evaluation is on the 25th of August, and my surgeon is Dr. Ceydeli of Panama City, Florida.... READ MORE

This is my first post after reading all other reviews from last year. Ready to do my own review now. A week before my surgery, just had pre op.

Hello everyone. I feel it is my responsibly to write this review, and help others to make such important decision, even after 55, to go thru an elective surgery, just for mare reason, as to look better. If it was not for this site I don't think I would have done it! So, this is my small... 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

I had big breasts starting in middle school. When I was a Freshman in high school, I was a size D cup. With every child I had, and the birth control I was on after, the more weight I gained, the bigger my breasts became. I couldn't breast feed my younger two children due to the size. My... READ MORE

I am having my reduction on the 25th of August. Have already had my Pre-Op. Getting a little nervous now and excited! I am a 34H and am hoping to make it to a 34C. Dr says my surgery will be 3 to 3 1/2 hrs long. Can't wait for this to happen! The days can't pass fast enough. Have wanted this... READ MORE

I have always had large breasts, and they have always bothered me. I have back pain all the time, some neck pain, and just about every other thing that comes with being too blessed in the chest. (I believe I am a DD right now, but could be bigger, idk I don't get measured, I just cram the pups... 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

This was the best thing I have ever done. I instantly felt as light as a feather when I woke up from surgery. My surgeon is amazing and I am healing so well. I highly recommend this surgery to anyone who is thinking about getting it! My whole healing process has been pretty easy. The most... READ MORE

Still pretty nervous about the whole thing but have heard nothing but great outcomes about by surgeon! Any helpful hints from someone who's been ... READ MORE

I am a 22 y/o woman standing tall at 5'2" (lol) and weighing about 170lbs and I had been thinking of getting a breast reduction for some years now but I never followed through with it due to my doubts of my insurance possibly not covering me because they will most likely consider me to be...

You read that right: my SECOND breast reduction is coming up at the end of this month and I couldn't be more ecstatic! At the age of 22, I had my first reduction. That was back in 1999. I weighed 127 pounds but couldn't drop the weight and I was VERY active as I was serving in the Air Force... READ MORE

Was tired of the heaviness of my breast, sweating underneath, moving around them for sleep and how I looked in my clothes. Also one was bigger than the other. Now they are near perfect! I love them! Asked my gyno who she recommends. I had consultation with DR. TOM GALLAHER. I didn't need to shop... 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

I'm 5'4, 43 yo and I'm going from a 36h to a 36c. I am equally parts excited and terrified. My fear comes from the fact that I've always embraced my curves and I identify as a curvy girl. I'm worried that I may look unbalanced after the procedure, but I think the pros outweigh the cons... READ MORE

I have thought about this surgery for a while as I suffer from poor posture and upper back problems. I used to run but can't now even with a sports bra as it is too uncomfortable. My mum has very big boobs too and wishes she had had something done about it. Have been for consultation but started... READ MORE
