A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, with 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 produce a smaller, perkier bust, but it can help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

I have wanted a BR for years. I finally went for a consult in late August. My insurance company approved me on the first go around. The fact that this was approved right away, made me feel better. I was not being vain, it really is justified! I am looking forward to less neck pain and smaller... READ MORE

So I went to a few consultations and decided on a doctor, Dr. Roland E Finger. He was charming and funny and has had over 40 years of plastic surgery experience. He and his staff made me comfortable and spoke with me about the risks and the results I can expect to receive. I was looking for a C... READ MORE

Hi RS Family, Sorry for the long post but here goes. I "think" I've finally decided to take the plunge and get a BR and then a TT or some other lower parts procedure thereafter. Breast History: I've had large breasts (perky I might add) for as long as I can remember since developing, but was... 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

After waiting two years in line for my breast reduction here in Norway, the hospital called me Friday and announced that they had an opening Monday (last week). So, -I suddenly have smaller boobs! They removed 740g on the right one, and 720g on the left. That is about one and a half milk carton!... READ MORE

Well! Here I am at age 61 with a 38 F. I would love to be a C. Hopefully, that will happen. I am nervous but extremely excited. Every night before going to bed, I read this blog. I find it so helpful and informative. I hope I get through this as easily as some of you have. I try yo... 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

Okay, let me start by saying thank you to everyone who posts on here. I combed through all of your stories and it has all helped me so much. A little about me, I am 24, 5'9", 155lbs. I have had big boobs since 9th grade. Pretty much over summer it seemed like they grew from nothing to a c cup in... READ MORE

Shoulder pain is no fun, and having huge boobs is no picnic either. I've always been pretty chesty but as menopause came on I seemed to just keep getting bigger and bigger. Enough. So glad I worked up the courage to go in for a consultation. My surgery went great and so far so good! Looking... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I'm 22, 5'4", and about 120 llbs. I've had some "final straw" moments this summer that have ended in tears and am now considering a BR more than ever. The number one thing keeping me from doing it is the possibility of nipple sensation loss. The second thing is I have seen a lot of... READ MORE

Hi ladies, I decided to make a review and share my story, since reading all of yours has been so helpful. I am 27 years old, 4'11" and currently 125 pounds. I am a 34H, which looks ridiculous on me. I have a small frame and have always been a very petite girl with huge boobs. Over the last... READ MORE

I didn't have any issues in high school with my breasts. In my twenties Is where they really took off. I went from C - DDD. Then when I was pregnant in my 30s they exploaded. Whenever I look in the mirror that is all I see and it makes my head look small. I never enjoyed the attention it... READ MORE

My breast didnt really start to get big until after i had my son in 2008. Before that i considered myself to be pretty active also doing 8 years in the military. When i first got pregnant with my son i was a size 34-C. After that my breast went to a 38DD seems like overnight. Over the past few... READ MORE

A brief history of my tits: I have had huge boobs since I was 13 when I first dreamed of a breast reduction. They caused me physical pain. They were cumbersome. They were ridiculously out of proportion with my body no matter my weight. At just 13 I was getting creepy attention from men. My mom... READ MORE

"We consider that size abnormal". I clearly remember the sales clerk saying those words to a 15 year old me when I asked for a 32DD. I don't know what my size is truly. I've always been embarrassed about my breasts. I developed early and wasn't mentally or emotionally prepared to be looked at... READ MORE

I have really large breasts (but so does most everyone else in this forum) and a fairly small frame. I recently lost about #60 and my frame just can't hold it all up anymore. My insurance approved a BR for shoulder grooving, back neck and shoulder pain, and numbness in my arms. My surgeon... 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 initially wasn't going to post anything but finally decided to because reading the posts of those who previously had the surgey done gave me so much confidence going into the procedure. For as long as I can remember I have had large breasts, by the time I was 23 years old I was a 36HH. Since... READ MORE

Hi everyone, This website has played a big part in my decision to final pursue breast reduction surgery. I've been thinking about it since high school and all your stories inspired me to start looking at options. I have been carrying around 32 H's for a long time and my back and neck pain have...

I've been patiently waiting since September 9 for my PS to fax my profile to my insurance company. Finally blue cross received my paperwork on November 11 also along with communication from my doctor's office. In seven months I've loss 50lbs. I'm suffering worse than my teenage years. I've...
