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 ›

Absolutely satisfied with the immediate and long term results. I had opted against the muscle tightening in the TT to speed recovery time as I had been doing Pilates for a year at the time of surgery and felt it wasn't needed. Cappella was surprised that the result was as good as it was without... READ MORE

My story is like many of the wonderful ladies found here. I've had a large chest my entire adult life and I'm finally doing something about it. I'm 47 years old, married with 2 children -7 and 10. I had my children later so I've had to wait longer to get a BR. Still, I wish I had looked into... READ MORE

I am almost 4 weeks post op(2 more days) and I have lost my areola on the left breast due to blood supply loss. It has been very traumatic. I was very excited about this new journey and now regret doing it. If I could turn back time i would keep the breast I had. Lesson learned. Please know the... READ MORE

Oh My Gosh.....I can't believe I am actually doing this. I already cancelled once but with reassurance from the doctor rescheduled. My breasts are large and heavy due to fibrocystic disease and after having a lot of back pain and headaches and neck pain it finally occurred to me that it might be... READ MORE

I'll add to this as I can. Just setting up everything now. Surgery date is Dec 6th! Nervous and excited, of course. I'm currently a 32DD and just tooooo big. They hurt me enough to want this done. I'm hoping to raise the breast as well, as time has dropped them down a bit. I'm hoping for a C... 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

Growing up I've always been so busty! I met with a plastic surgeon when I was in my teens but I was not ready for the procedure yet. Now that I'm older, I feel that I can make the decision without having any regrets. I am getting married in June and soon after I will want kids, being able to... READ MORE

Since I got my first training bra in fifth grade I can remember being teased for the size of my breasts. In high school I was told my boyfriend only went out with me because I had "a nice car and big boobs." At my 10-year class reunion one of my best friends joked about having to stand between...

I have had large breasts my entire life- 5'8 and 160lbs/athletic build and have always just felt out of per portion. Clothes not fitting correctly, me appearing larger than i know that I actually am, feeling like all that shows up in pictures was my breasts etc. Obviously my larger breasts... READ MORE

For a small person I have very large breasts. I'm a 30GG however wear 32GG, I have had problems with getting dresses in a size 10, problems getting shirts. My decision to have a breast reduction is based on frustration and the desire to have small breast. I have had my first consultation and... READ MORE

Hi Ladies! I'm so inspired after reading all of your stories for the past couple of months. I feel that there is no other website available that is so honest and encouraging. My husband thinks I'm crazy to be so obsessed with looking at boobs every night but he just doesn't understand, haha.... READ MORE

I've had large breasts for my adult life and have thought about having a reduction for the last few years. I lost 40 lbs a few years ago and my breasts did get smaller, but we're still large and very saggy. I just had my first child 3 months ago and was spilling out of a 34 F. Since I've stopped...

Thursday, I had my consultation with Dr. Sam Economu. He sent my insurance which is BCBS of MN a pre authorization letter & told me I have to wait 4-6 weeks to hear back. I'll be a full C cup post op, if insurance does approve me. He also walked me through the procedure. Wish me luck guys :)... READ MORE

I Always wear V-neck shirts. They limit me to clothing choices it seems that while most of the world wants to show... READ MORE

I hit puberty at the age of 9, I had full d/dd by the age of 12. Before that I was a tomboy, I had dreamed of becoming a baseball player but that dream... READ MORE

I am a 34 HH with back problems and life disadvantages based on my difficulties of having such large breasts. I am interested in finding out any more information possible that may prepare me for this procedure. I am going to be reduced to at least a D cup at most a full C cup. I am looking to... READ MORE

Hi all, I am super excited but also nervous. I have been reading on RealSelf for sometime now, and have read some fabulous journeys you ladies have taken. Congrats to you all!
