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 ›

Okay ladies I am starting a new review because I could not change my doctor on the old one. In my original review I had started 2 years ago trying to get a breast reduction and was denied by Anthem BlueCross BlueShield. Fast forward to May of 2015 I decided to do the breast reduction again and... READ MORE

I have had large breast for as long as I can remember, over the past 4-5 yrs after having my child they have really become way to large and very heavy. I'm ready to feel good in clothes and be able to actually buy the appropriate size shirt for my body and not my breast size! Hoping to go from... READ MORE

Hello everyone, I've been on this site for a few weeks now, and decided to finally share a little bit about myself. Like most of you, my breasts began to grow when I was young, in 5th grade. I can't recall what sizes I wore at certain points in my life, but I'm pretty sure I was a full C by 8th... READ MORE

I started wearing a training bra at 8yrs old. By the time I was 14 I was into a C cup. I have wanted to have the procedure done for a long time but having kids to take care of and working I couldn't. I have suffered back and neck pain for so long it became the norm. I had finally had enough... READ MORE

I am SO beyond ready to get rid of my huge breasts. I have been obsessed with looking at RealSelf reviews, and they have been beyond helpful. It has inspired me to write my own reviews, and to try to be as thorough as possible. I have a *somewhat* unique situation (or maybe not, but I haven't... READ MORE

More than anything, I would like to not have the constant pulling of my neck and shoulders. I would like to run and dance and jump without being completely self-conscious about the flopping display. I want someone to notice my brown eyes first, not my big boobs. After experiencing the true... READ MORE

I am 23 years old and I'm approximately 173cm and have been thinking about having this surgery probably for the last 9 years. I have had huge boobs for as long as I can remember. They began bothering me when I was about 14, Boys were paying too much attention for all the wrong reasons and it... READ MORE

I have been considering a breast reduction for a few years now, But it was the constant shoulder, back and neck pain, that did it for me. I'm 5'3 and 135lbs and F's were just not comfortable! People told me I was insane for wanting to do a breast reduction and that I would regret it because I... READ MORE

I'm 31 years old- 2 kids. I've always have had big boobs since I can remember- back in about 6th I was one of the girls with big breast. It never bother me much growing up. My friends were cool about it and they match my body structure, no issues then. After I had my first child (10 yrs ago)... READ MORE

My breasts began growing when I was 12, by the time I was 14 I was hearing catcalls like "boobs!" when I was walking the 12 blocks to my girlfriend's house. I was very self conscious. I was quite active in sports and would wear my sisters bra(which was tight being smaller) when I ran my events.... 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

15 Days to my consultation! I am so nervous, I so need this surgery (as seen in pictures) I have had a consultation before, but this was before my child. My husband lost his job, which meant the insurance went to. So I was not able to get the surgery. Three year later and a now 1 year old. I... READ MORE

Just like many on here, I've had large breasts since I was about 12/13. In 6th grade I was a C cup and by high school I was a DD. I have always been on the curvy side but when I was in high school I lost about 30lbs and my breasts never got smaller. They continued to grow and grow, and this past... READ MORE

This is an informative site from the prospective of the patient. All the photos are helpful and everyone seems so happy about the choice they've made without having unreal expectations. It's like who cares about the scars it's the size that counts. I haven't seen any procedures like mine but... READ MORE

I have always had a large chest since high school, I was about an E cup but it never bothered me. After having kids, I lost a lot of weight, I got down to 123lbs and as I am only 5ft tall, my breasts which stayed at 32GG just looked way out of proportion. I had really bad back and neck pain,...
