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 have always been active, but always had heavy breasts no matter how small my body. It didn't bother me until the pain started creeping into my neck back and shoulders. Now it's all I know. I have taken a step back, not being competitive because my back could let me down. 2 years and 3 surgeons... READ MORE

I finally decided to start my breast reduction journey after dealing with many, many years of back and neck pain, headaches and numbness in my hand and arm. I am currently a size 44H and have been that size for about 10 years. I started developing breasts and wearing training bras at the age... READ MORE

I've been debating for 3 months if I wanted to wright a review or not& decided that I should so here we go.... I'm a mom of 2 & have been wanting & researching this procedure for about 13 yrs now. I've been so self conscious about my breast since the age of 21 then after each child it seems as... READ MORE

I have not been satisfied with my breasts because they were really different in size. I think I was wearing a C cup in grade 5! Losing weight doesn't help, have a terrible back, and I was plain sick and tired of that bigger breast not staying inside my bra when I bent over or exercised. Once I... READ MORE

Hello ! now it is my turn to share my experience with you: me too, I have always been big busted and found good ways to manage it through exercising and dressing carefully. my initial disconcertment and shame changed slowly in my early twenties and i became more befriended with my breasts. this...

I have been glued to this website for weeks now. The reviews I see make me feel more confident. I have always been big up top. Everyone thought I had implants going into 5th grade. Recently they continue to grow. I am popping out of a 38 ddd. My surgery is set for January 26th and it cant get... READ MORE

I'm scheduled for a BR next week, Tuesday, September 23rd. I'm very excited (and a tad bit nervous) to finally have my reduction. I have always had big boobs which has caused me to have back, shoulder, and neck pain. My bra size is 38DD; with my BR I should reduce my cup to a C/D. I found... READ MORE

Well... I'm nervous as can be. I just got the approval from my insurance company yesterday as medical necessity. Gasp. I was sure they'd balk and deny. I admit, I cried.... After I sat in shock for 20 minutes reading and rereading until the words actually sunk in. My husband asked what the... READ MORE

We'll I have my date 12th feb can't really believe I am doing this ......something I have wanted since my twenties but never had the courage. I am 36j (will take pics soon) and would like to be a C I think. My sister says that I should go to a D as I won't look like myself but I reckon that's... READ MORE

After my first child at the age of 22 I breast fed for around 2 months and since then my breast just have not stopped growing. I am 5ft7inch and weigh 82kg. I have continuous neck and shoulder pain and find it... READ MORE

Hi everyone. I recently joined this sight out of a broken heart. I'm 23 years old no kids and a size 36 G/H. My fiancé had been fussing with me to get a new bra because the one decent bra I have is entirely too old. So we go to the mall to get a bra. Just to be told that my frame is too small... READ MORE

I have been large breasted since grade 6. I remember having to shop for "granny" bras because I was too big to fit into anything cute. It was embarrassing to have to shower after gym class and put on this giant bra when a lot of the girls had barely anything and could wear cute bra tops or... READ MORE

I've had large breast as long as i can remember... I've suffer from back and neck pain for years. I've tried everything from chiropractors to physical therapy all only temporary fixes. I considered breast reduction years ago but got denied by insurance and never followed through.. However, after... READ MORE

It’s about time. Hi Real Self. I am 53 years old. I don’t know what I would do without Real Self. I was a candidate for breast reduction, surgery date on 12/05/13. I have read many stories on this site for years, and inspired by them. I especially enjoyed the review by the Hawkeye... READ MORE

I had my procedure on 13 Jan 15 and would not change a thing except that I wish I would of done it sooner. I have had a really easy time with this surgery, but before hand, I got my body into really good shape by exercising and eat properly. I think that along with eating healthy since my... READ MORE

When women say that breastfeeding ruined their breasts, I get it. And I don't. Not really, because my boobs have needed a reduction since my 20s - long before I breastfed my two children. My breasts pretty much stayed the same through pregnancy and breastfeeding. Though the fibrous fat & breast... READ MORE

I have been contemplating a BR for about 17 years and just recently mustered up enough courage to schedule consultations. It seems every year my breast cup jumps up a letter. As with all large breasted women, I suffer from back, shoulder, and neck pain, and I have a hump on the back of my neck,... READ MORE

Hey everyone on realself! In the process of looking for a doctor to do my breast reduction. Hoping it's covered by insurance because I'm broke! I had my daughter at 17 & went from a B cup to a 32DD! I'm really skinny so imagine how awkward my body looks. Also having large breast is starting to... READ MORE

I have been large chested just about all my life. I started sprouting in 3rd grade. Of course I hated them right away. I used to use an ace bandage to keep them as flat as possible when I was a kid. My breasts are always the first thing people notice about me and not in a good way. People always... READ MORE

I can't believe I'm doing it!... The nurse and PS were super nice today at the preop apptmt., put me so much at... READ MORE
