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'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

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 had large breast my entire life it seems. I want to be more active and I know losing some of the weight from my chest will help. I have finally hit a stage in my life when I have decided to do it. I have though about it for years and the pain in my neck and back have finally gotten to be... READ MORE

Large breast since I was a teen! I have ALWAYS wanted a reduction and decided if insurance approves I'm going for it! Consultation with a diff Dr. last summer, recommended by friend. I can't speak for his work, but wasn't impressed when I met him. Dr. was dry, flat and just ok. Insurance denied... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I am getting a breast reduction 2 weeks from today and could not be more excited! I decided to write this review because, though every review that I have read has been super helpful, most women who get this surgery are a bit older than I am or have at least had children first. As I... READ MORE

For the past ten years, I have been thinking about having a breast reduction. Like so many women here, I developed early and my breasts just continued to grow. Even at my lowest weight in the 110s, I still had a DDD or E cup (depending on the bra). Weight fluctuations didn't affect my breast... READ MORE

Hello fellow busty ladies! This isn't really like me to post reviews, but I thought since this website has been so helpful to me that I would contribute as well. So here is my "boob" story: As a young girl I didn't really understand how boobs grew; I just thought I would wake one day and have... READ MORE

NOTE: You will notice some photoshopping on the top of my left breast, this is because I have a very recognizable tattoo. It is the only thing that will be edited. So to start off... I feel very strange putting pictures of my boobs on the internet, but realself was crucial to me making the... READ MORE

Hi all! I'm 19, 5'3 and 125lbs and I've been trying to get this reduction for a while now with horrible neck, shoulder, and back pain and almost constant migraines and headaches. I finally got my parents to agree with me and set up some consultations around mid-July. Luckily the surgeon I liked... READ MORE

So far I have had a consultation with several plastic surgeons. My favorite by far is Dr. Christine Nygaard in Bellevue, WA. My sister referred me to her having had breast augmentation and lipo performed by Dr. Nygaard some years back with excellent results. I must say I am extremely impressed... READ MORE

I know it may sound cliche to say I should have done this years ago but it's true!! Absolutely one of the best decisions of my life. From consultation to follow up Dr Stoeckel and his team were wonderful. Very approachable, kind and put me at ease immediately. I would not hesitate to reccomend.... 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

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

I have known since I was ~14 years old and a 32C that I would someday need a breast reduction, and here we are! At 5'8" and 125 lbs I am carrying a full size 34DD/34DDD set of breasts, and ready for some relief! My shoulders ache daily from my bra straps, my neck/back worry me that I will be a... 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 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

I am 23 years old and currently at 32KK. I started thinking about getting a breast reduction last fall but at the time decided against it because I was worried about losing my ability to breastfeed in the future but in May of this year I decided to go for it for my self esteem and to help my...

I've been large busted sixth grade, 29 years. Since having my kids my breasts have dropped, like heavy clock pendulums. I suffered from severe neck and back pain, migraines, and shortness of breath. I waited until my kids were old enough to be self sufficient so I didn't have to be worried... 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

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
