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 ›

Hello I'm interested in getting a breast reduction. I'm 5'4 weigh 155 lbs and have a breast size of 34DD. I've went to therapy twice within a 3 year period for a 6 month period treating areas such as my neck and back. I'm looking to have this procedure done through my insurance to which I have...

All my life I grew up completely insecure and with no self confidence. I was a FFF at the time of my surgery. I couldn't wear normal bras, bathing suits, shirts, and it was difficult to shop. When I went into my first consultation with Dr. Anastasatos we immediately clicked, and he made me feel... READ MORE

Okay Ladies, I have scoured this site long enough. Now its time for me to share. I have been heavy -chested since I was about 11 years old. I am currently a 38I and would love, love, love to be somewhere around a "C" cup. I am not sure if that is even possible. I made an appointment for a... 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

Hello All, I am a week out of surgery and can't really say yet whether I'm pleased. I wasn't a very busty woman to begin with yet; after babies my breast "swung low sweet chariot" and I needed a change. My left breast was about a size larger than my right because I nursed mostly via my... READ MORE

Like so many of you I have back pain, tension especially across my neck and shoulders, some difficulty breathing, and all the other things that come with being "blessed" (I say that sarcastically of course). I've been seeking a breast reduction since 2012 and recently had my consultation with Dr... READ 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

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

Thank you so much Dr. Singer!! I love my boobs, they are so small and perky. I just got my breast reduction on 7/14/15. I have wanted this for the past 8yrs. I was so scared to get it done, my main concern was scarring. I have done my research for years but I would always get nervous because... READ MORE

I've began developing breast at the age of 15. By the age of 17 I was in a D cup. My paternal family has the breast, my maternal family has the butt. Unfortunately, I inherited the breast????. I grew up as a dancer, cheerleader, and gymnast. That all came to an end once my breast began to... READ MORE

I am a 36 year old mom with two great kids ages 10 and 8. I have always been bigger on top (34c when I got married and have only grown from there) but haven't really thought about a breast reduction until this last year. I made three appointments this past winter and chose Dr Gorman Louie. He is... READ MORE

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

Hi friends! I have been an avid real self reader for quite sometime now. I think I'm addicted???? my journey begin July 2014, I was given a few recommendations for surgeons before I made a decision to see Dr. John Connors. My first date for my BR was in Oct '14. I had my pre-op appointment and... READ MORE

So im 21 years old, and ive known since I was 14 that something needed to be done. I told doctors from 15-20 years old that my back hurt, that my boobs had sores. That my skin couldnt keep up with how fast I was growing. I cracked and bled for months. I went from a B to a DD in one summer. The... READ MORE

I met with Dr. Mitts and his staff the beginning of June for a Breast Reduction Consultation. I have always had large breasts. It seems like they grew over night. I graduated high school at a DDD. By the time I finished college I was at an H. After the birth of my daughter I have stayed... 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

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

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

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
