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'm FINALLY getting surgery done on Nov 11 after years of dreaming about it. I wear a 30H although none really fit perfectly so they're probably bigger than that. I tried to get the surgery done in my country, Panama, a few years ago but insurance said they would not cover it. Next month I'll... READ MORE

I was in 5th grade and was wearing a tube top during the summer and realized everybody was staring at my chest when I realized I was bigger busted than anyone else I knew in my school. It made me uncomfortable as I got involved in sports and had to wear expensive compression bras to stabilize... READ MORE

I am 55, 5'6.5" tall, 170 Pounds, 36F/G According to the measurements when I had my self measured, I should be wearing a 36 F or G. I have always bought bra's with stretchy cups and wide straps but that just isn't enough anymore. My shoulders have grooves, pain in my upper back and... 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

Denied for breast reduction!!!! In June 2015, I began my journey and effort to seek approval for a breast reduction. The final straw was my getting a fungal (ring worm) infection which started under my breast. I've had it for over three months. I have always had upper neck pain, shoulder pain,... READ MORE

I have had large breast for as long as I can remember, over the past 4-5 yrs after having my child they have really become way to large and very heavy. I'm ready to feel good in clothes and be able to actually buy the appropriate size shirt for my body and not my breast size! Hoping to go from... READ MORE

Hello everyone, I've been on this site for a few weeks now, and decided to finally share a little bit about myself. Like most of you, my breasts began to grow when I was young, in 5th grade. I can't recall what sizes I wore at certain points in my life, but I'm pretty sure I was a full C by 8th... READ MORE

I started wearing a training bra at 8yrs old. By the time I was 14 I was into a C cup. I have wanted to have the procedure done for a long time but having kids to take care of and working I couldn't. I have suffered back and neck pain for so long it became the norm. I had finally had enough... READ MORE

More than anything, I would like to not have the constant pulling of my neck and shoulders. I would like to run and dance and jump without being completely self-conscious about the flopping display. I want someone to notice my brown eyes first, not my big boobs. After experiencing the true... READ MORE

I have been considering a breast reduction for a few years now, But it was the constant shoulder, back and neck pain, that did it for me. I'm 5'3 and 135lbs and F's were just not comfortable! People told me I was insane for wanting to do a breast reduction and that I would regret it because I... READ MORE

I'm 31 years old- 2 kids. I've always have had big boobs since I can remember- back in about 6th I was one of the girls with big breast. It never bother me much growing up.

My breasts began growing when I was 12, by the time I was 14 I was hearing catcalls like "boobs!" when I was walking the 12 blocks to my girlfriend's house. I was very self conscious. I was quite active in sports and would wear my sisters bra(which was tight being smaller) when I ran my events.... READ 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
