Due to chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, I had been seeing a chiropractor for about 18 months. I didn’t always have large breasts. About 3½ years ago my OB/GYN and a general surgeon went in together to clean up a large amount of adhesions and scar tissue that seemed to be attached to... READ MORE

I'm an exotic dancer who was just very displeased with my breasts and stomach area, I've always had big breast that sagged pretty bad ... I will admit I should have researched more docs ...

My history with large breasts go back many years. I started wearing a bra when I was 9 and by the time I was in high school I was a 36 DD. I was into sports and hiking. I bound them when I was playing softball because I was teased that I would give myself a bloody nose when I ran. I have had... READ MORE

Hello all. I have been following the stories on realself for quite some time, and now that my insurance company has scheduled my surgery, I thought it would be a prime time to begin sharing my own. All of you ladies have been so helpful in normalizing this experience, and all of the feelings... READ MORE

My story is a lot like all of you here. I remember being teased at 9yr for having breasts! And the embarrassment of wearing a bra to school that first time and I felt everyone knew it! Anyway this decision from talking to my doctor to consultation and... READ MORE

I am sooo excited and nervous for my procedure. I think I will love the outcome but not look forward to pain and scars! I am a little less than 2 weeks from surgery.

Here I am, finally! I'm 63 years old and have hated my big, saggy breasts for decades. I'm 5'2", 140 pounds, and wear a 40D minimizer but I'm pretty much busting out of it. Within the last year, I was diagnosed with a torn shoulder ligament on one side, and I'm pretty sure I have the same thing... READ MORE

I started thinking about this a couple of months ago. My breasts have always been large, but as I got older and gained weight (in my 20's I weighed 145 at 5'9", now I weight 185) my breasts got much larger. I have pretty much realized this is the weight I am going to stay at (-10 pounds maybe).... READ MORE

I joined Real Self several months ago, but since my surgery was scheduled out so far I thought I'd wait until the month before to give my story. So here goes...
