WORTH IT RATING based on 2,976 reviews
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 been waiting for a BR, but I just put it off. Finally, I decided I was tired of readjusting my bra EVERYDAY, because the straps were cutting in my shoulders. Not to mention, when I work out, these bags slowed me down (even while I was wearing TWO bras). I went in April 2014 for a... READ MORE

I have been on this site for quite sometime now dreaming about having a Breast Reduction. Well, I have finally taken the first steps! My story is the same as all of you: I've had large breasts since puberty, I am self conscious, terrible back pain, and I desire to feel more confident,... READ MORE

Was in desperate need of a breast reduction when I was referred to Dr. Andrade at Southlake Regional Hospital in Newmarket, Ontario and had my surgery in November 2014. I felt very comfortable and at ease right from my consult appt. I am so pleased with the results! Should have done this years... READ MORE

I decided to join this forum now that I recovered, as it is really hard to find stories of infection out there. They are very rare, so that is partly why. They do happen, though. I chose the first Doctor I interviewed. She was wonderful and I knew within the first 2 minutes that she was the... READ MORE

I tried to submit a review whilst I was at hospital, but the internet timed out and I lost my review. This one is far more detailed, more like a snippet at my life experience of living with boob hell... Younger years: Ever since I was a young girl at school, I realised I'd taken on the "large...

Posting these pics because I'am four weeks post op. And very worried.The pics look magnified because they are close up with an I pad camera. Not only is my right areola not healing. Underneath my breasts I have excruciating. Pain. I had a breast reduction Lollipop technique with 250 CC... READ MORE

I've been heavy-chested since I was 12 yrs old. At that point, I was a 34 D, and by the time I had my third child in 2010, I was a 36 G. I've since gone up to a 36 H. I've always wanted to get a breast reduction, but I wanted to be able to breastfeed my children. My husband and I don't plan to... READ MORE

Running used to be fun for me, I miss it. I'm six feet tall and I weigh 244, I'm hoping to get down to 225-230 before... READ MORE

My name is Alexandra, I am 20 years old, a 34G, and I want a breast reduction for Christmas. I began wearing training bras in the third grade and quickly graduated to real bras. By the time I entered 6th grade I was 5'2, 125 pounds, and a full B-cup, at least. By the end of 8th grade I had... 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

I've had huge boobs since high school. My mom has huge boobs, so it had always been something that I was used to. I am completely miserable everyday. My entire upper body constantly aches, and I have very low self esteem. My large boobs really hold me back from living the type of life I want. I... READ MORE

So in a little less than two weeks I will be having my breast reduction surgery. So far my experience with the surgeon and everyone has been great. I'm really excited this is happening. I didn't really realize until about a year ago how big my breasts were until I was sized and told I wore a... READ MORE

Surgery scheduled for 10/30/14 & I'm nervous. I'm ready for this to be over, but the closer I get to the date I'm feeling all types of anxiety. I have mixed feelings, but the reviews I've read so far are definitely answering alot of the questions & fears I have. Any advice you can provide just... READ MORE

I am a 36 F/G I hate my boobs, I look weird and out of proportion, dying of back pain. I went to get a quotation at a doctor in St Augustine : the doctor costs R 20 000, anesthetic is R 10 000, Theatre room is R 67 000. Quotation at Life Crompton Hospital in Pinetown: Theatre Room R 55 000 for... READ MORE

I am 5 days from having my breast reduction surgery. I was originally a 42DDD and have lost 50 pounds over a few years and now down to 38DD so now it's time to have this reduction! I am tired of wearing 2-3 sports bras just to work out and tired of the headaches and neck & back pain. I will do a... READ MORE

This has been long overdue. I wanted a breast reduction far before I knew that minimizing your breast surgically was even a option. I received more No's then Yes. I was never told I wasn't a candidate just never found the right doctor, at the right time who was able to see my vision. I refused... READ MORE

I'm having a reduction/lift on 12/2. I've lost 116lbs since Feb 25th via Duodenal Switch. I'm measuring a 36H. I'm hoping to be a large C when this is over. I know I NEED to do it but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't starting to get a little nervous. Any tips, advice, last minute things I need... READ MORE

Hello all. I have been following the stories on realself for quite some time, and now that my insurance company has scheduled my surgery, I thought it would be a prime time to begin sharing my own. All of you ladies have been so helpful in normalizing this experience, and all of the feelings... READ MORE

I started puberty at a very young age and by the time I reached the first year of secondary school I was already a D cup. It gained unwanted attention from men and boys and I felt like it made me feel i had to grow up quicker than my my friends who still looked like 'girls'. Don't get me wrong,... READ MORE
