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 ›

Well, after many years of wanting and needing a BR but being afraid of the cost, I made an appointment with a plastic surgeon for a consult just to get an idea of where I stood. I had no idea I might be covered by insurance so we decided to give the approval process a try. Everyone in the... READ MORE

Today I got off the phone with a Dr. Kitti D. Outlaw's Office. I have my very first appointment with his office on July 6th and 2:00 PM. I admit, I am excited but terrified all at once about the steps from here on out. I haven't had a meeting with him yet, though I did find our conversation over... 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

I’ve really struggled with writing this. There is so much good information on this site that I wasn’t sure my story would offer any fresh insights. But, due to recent events, I think it may-or at the least selfishly offer me some comfort and support. And now the stats: I am a 44 year-old... READ MORE

For as long as I can remember, i've been a busty gal. It's almost like in the elementary school (yes, elementary school) my breasts appeared overnight, and even in the third grade I was known as "the girl with big boobs". By fifth grade, I was a DD cup. I am now a nineteen year old high school... READ MORE
