I am currently in the investigative phase. I spend most of my free time reviewing these reviews. Call me crazy, but I say I am being cautious. The more read other members post, the more inquisitive I am. Some reviews have me ready to face the war, while others have me wanting to hide in a... READ MORE

I am so ready for this surgery. I am 18 and wear a 32H bra and want this surgery more than anything. My summer roommate got one two years ago and since then I have been considering it, but just recently I have the motivation to get the ball rolling. At my normal physical in late May, I mentioned...

I had thought about a breast reduction off & on for a couple of years. I finally went through with it after being referred to Dr. Morgan by a friend. I was a 38DD and wanted to be reduced to a C. I had a breast reduction & lift, bilateral, upper & lower abs lipo. I am still healing but have... READ MORE

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
