I've always had large breast. While I am overweight, my breast were not fatty so no amount if weight lose changed them. After a car accident last year left me with neck, back and shoulder pains, I knew it was time to get a reduction. When I started the process of researching surgeons 2 months... READ MORE

I had always been a bit larger that my school mates, but after my son at the age of 40 I grew from 38 C to 40-42/DD-DDD depending on the bra. No more comfortable shoulders and my back and neck are always killing me. I have systemic lupus and fibromyalgia along with a few other strange... READ MORE

I am so excited I never thought the day would come. This site has helped me feel so much better about my decision. I received my approval on April 28th. I only recently found this site...like last week. I had be denied for the BR in August, but I decided to go to another surgeon in November...it... READ MORE

I am 38 now and have wanted a BR since I was about 20 yrs old. They have always made me look chubby.. I am on day 12 post surgery and STILL SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. I was warned by so many people that it was the most painful surgery ever.. Not true. I may have a higher tolerance for pain but I am... READ MORE

Ok. I have been reading reviews on real self as I process my desire for a breast reduction and I wondered if I would actually write one. Since reading others have been helpful to me, I'm writing to hopefully be helpful to someone else. I'm 50 y.o, 225 lbs, 5'1" tall. Currently I am a 42I/J... READ MORE

Looking back trying to remember when I first thought about having a breast reduction I cannot pinpoint it exactly, certainly the thought has been popping up regularly for the last 10 years, but somehow I never thought I'd be able to have it done. In Norway where I live you can get the operation... READ MORE

I started this process of getting a breast reduction surgery approved by my insurance, BCBS. I met with four plastic surgeons in the last 2 weeks of October, and eliminated two right away. I had the other two PS submit claims and go from there. I have a preferred PS of course. I am waiting to... READ MORE

Thank you to all who post here! Every newsletter that comes to my email I go through completely. Reading all the posts has already helped me so much about what to expect, what products to use, everything. Will post pics as soon as I start taking some. Was always basically normal size, but on...

I sought a breast reduction because I have always been self conscious about the size of my breast. I often would hide inside to avoid looks and the judgement about the size of my breast, which is currently more than a 46DDD. I can't wait to have them reduced. I have my consultation 6/25/13....

I am 27 years old mother of 2. My breasts have always been a huge problem for me. I began to develop when I was only in 4th grade and was always accused of stuffing my bra. By the time I hit middle school, I was in a C cup. I am now a 36DD. I just had my consultation with my PS yesterday and was... READ MORE

Bye bye boobies!! I'm a stay at home momma. I have a 5-1/2 yr old daughter and a 3 yr old son. Im 25 (soon to be 26 actually a cpl weeks after my surgery!) Happy Birthday to me!! Ive had big boobies for as long as I can remember. Since puberty? And after having 2 kids they only got bigger. Ive... READ MORE

My entire adult life and sense of physical self has been dominated by my chest size. As I aged, my breasts became less of an asset and more of a joke and embarrassment. After years of thinking I had to just put up with it all, I realized that the aches and pains and shame and frustration were a... READ MORE

I've had back problems for a couple years - I get muscle spasms in my back that are debilitating. At its worst, I have a hard time doing simple movements like turning my head or moving my arms. And over time, it's been taking less and less to set my back off into a spasm - I used to get a bad... READ MORE

I am having a breast reduction (36DDD) and tummy tuck in 3 weeks! Eeek!! Im nervous and excited. I am hearing mostly good things so far. Seems once you get passed the first few days you are good. I have psoriasis and that is one of my biggest concerns. Also, is it true you cant stand upright... READ MORE

I have been reading the posts and looking at the pictures on Real Self regarding my procedure to get and idea and expectations of the surgery. I have to admit there are some really brave women on here. A little about me, I will turn 37 this week. I have a 15 year old son, and my breasts... READ MORE

I can remember being very flat chested and wanting large breasts so bad and then BOOM...puberty hit and it was like I went from an A cup to a D cup overnight! I remember wanting a breast reduction as far back as high school because I just couldn't wear all the cute little tops that all the other... READ MORE

Shoulder pain is no fun, and having huge boobs is no picnic either. I've always been pretty chesty but as menopause came on I seemed to just keep getting bigger and bigger. Enough. So glad I worked up the courage to go in for a consultation. My surgery went great and so far so good! Looking... READ MORE

After 15yrs of big breasts, it was finally time to do something about it. I developed fairly early at the age of 13; from a A/B cup to a D cup. When I finally hit a 42I, it w as time to do something permanent. I had my first consult in March of 2013, got approved in about 1.5wks, and scheduled... READ MORE

I'll be 45 in July and have three kids...two who aren't really kids anymore...ages 21, 20, and almost 15. I'm 5' 2" and fluctuate in weight from about 145-165 (currently 162 ugh). Like most of the reviewers on this site, I have been struggling with these heavyweights since junior high. I've... READ MORE
