Here I am, finally! I'm 63 years old and have hated my big, saggy breasts for decades. I'm 5'2", 140 pounds, and wear a 40D minimizer but I'm pretty much busting out of it. Within the last year, I was diagnosed with a torn shoulder ligament on one side, and I'm pretty sure I have the same thing... READ MORE

I joined Real Self several months ago, but since my surgery was scheduled out so far I thought I'd wait until the month before to give my story. So here goes... My surgery date is scheduled for October 6, 2014. Unlike a lot of ladies I wasn't overly large at an early age or after pregnancy. ... READ MORE

I'm scheduled for a BR next week, Tuesday, September 23rd. I'm very excited (and a tad bit nervous) to finally have my reduction. I have always had big boobs which has caused me to have back, shoulder, and neck pain. My bra size is 38DD; with my BR I should reduce my cup to a C/D. I found... READ MORE

I have thought about this for decades (I am 60) but I can't deny that I am nervous. I have had other 'consultations' over the years but this time I am almost there ... I have a date and I am counting down. My fear of bleeding to death (!) doesn't seem likely ... I have watched several videos ... READ MORE

Hello, all. I've been reading many reviews and I've decided to finally write my own experiences. I just had my breast reduction on 09/11/2013 about 8:00 in the morning. I didn't get out until noon.

I am a 55 year old women that had breast reduction when I was 18 years old. After 2 kids and 37 years, they grew back. One week ago I underwent breast reduction for the second time. I understood that I was a good candidate for lipo BR because I am menopausal and much of my breast tissue has... READ MORE

So my breast reduction is on Monday, and I am starting to REALLY freak out. My biggest fear is throwing up from the anaesthics. I would do ANYTHING not to throw up from this surgery. I'm also terrified of the bruising and swelling that it sure to freak me out at first, and the dressing... READ MORE

So I just had my first visit/consult w/Dr. Leonard Lu today. He was SO, SO nice and made me feel very comfortable! He took pics to send my insurance. I am hoping to go from 38DDD to a small C. I am keeping my fingers crossed they cover my BR! I also consulted about a TT. That is all I have... READ MORE

I really didn't think my situation was bad enough that insurance would approve it. I wear a 34J I am 5"1" and now weigh 155. When I first started looking into it I weighed 172. Believe or not when the PS told me that he thought that Anthem BCBS of Ohio would approve me if gave me the... READ MORE

Hello! I would first like to thank all the ladies who have shared their BR experiences on this website.

So im 21 years old, and ive known since I was 14 that something needed to be done. I told doctors from 15-20 years old that my back hurt, that my boobs had sores. That my skin couldnt keep up with how fast I was growing. I cracked and bled for months. I went from a B to a DD in one summer. The... READ MORE
