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 can't begin to thank all you wonderful ladies for writing reviews and relating your stories on realself, it's been so good to know I'm not alone in the journey to smaller, more appropriately sized breasts! Similar to many of you, I developed early, at 11 I outgrew my training bra by leaps... READ MORE

I am 23 years old and currently at 32KK. I started thinking about getting a breast reduction last fall but at the time decided against it because I was worried about losing my ability to breastfeed in the future but in May of this year I decided to go for it for my self esteem and to help my...

Have had big breast since 6th grade they just grew overnight I guess... anyway I didn't really think anything of my breast being big until people made comments about them in middle school.. since then people would always joke about them leaving me depressed. Getting a breast reduction has been... READ MORE

Just want to be smaller , pain free and able to fit clothes. Have been big breasted since about 18. Increasing after each child. Have had MRIs on neck and back. Disc problems I'm sure due to bad posture. Won't excerise any more as I always end up with pulled muscles and back pain. Weight has... READ MORE

This was the best thing I have ever done. I instantly felt as light as a feather when I woke up from surgery. My surgeon is amazing and I am healing so well. I highly recommend this surgery to anyone who is thinking about getting it! My whole healing process has been pretty easy. The most... READ MORE

Like many others on here, I can't even remember the last time my boobs were small or at least a "normal" size. I can't remember when I started wearing a bra but I was stuffing myself into a "C" in high school. It wasn't pretty! My weight has fluctuated over the years, as has my boob size. I... READ MORE

So my day is Friday!!! I've been back and forth with this decision and decided last year that enough was enough.. Let's do it! I've always been big 36D/DD but after my daughter 10 years ago I never went back down in size. I went up 4 cup sizes in my first trimester and stayed that way. 32HH!... READ MORE

I've always wanted a reduction, but I would never have been able to justify the expense, and I didn't think my health insurance would pay for it. I'm a 34H, and over the years, I had increasing problems with pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. Driving long distances and working at the... READ MORE

I was finally able to schedule my BR this past week! About a year ago I started considering having a breast reduction done, but was in the middle of moving and it just wasn't a good time to pursue it. Last November I finally had my first consult. Basically, a nurse saw me, an hour and a half... READ MORE

So I have just come out of surgery. So far not too much pain, just had a bed pan wee which was weird, dreading the next one, but I guess the nurses do it all the time.. Quick question.

I'm 5'4" and 128 lbs small frame , cup dd. I have bad neck and shoulder pain. I'm looking for relief. After having all my kids gravity has taken it's toll. Tired of unraveling them at night and rolling them back up in the morning. When I'm lying down they flop to the sides. They hurt... READ MORE

Back-story: Where to begin? Started this journey at age 7 when my parents took me to the doctor to ask if there was anything they could do to make sure I grew breasts....

Okay Ladies, I have scoured this site long enough. Now its time for me to share. I have been heavy -chested since I was about 11 years old.
