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 ›

July 28th is getting close. I am finding myself trying to get ready for a surgery that is still a couple weeks away. I'm not really stressing about it though. If I start thinking about it, I tried find a solution. For instance, I started thinking about my hair, and whose going to wash it? When... READ MORE

It is finally my turn. I have been staking this website since july. I can't begin to tell all of you how incredibly helpful reading your stories have been. I figured I need to put my story on here in hopes to help other people. I am 36 years old and have always had large breasts (familiar... READ MORE

I am 23 years old and I am getting my breast reduction in less than a month! I feel really uncomfortable posting my boobs online, but this website has helped me a lot, so I thought I would share in hopes that I can help someone too. I grew boobs early and should have been wearing a bra... READ MORE

I tried to submit a review whilst I was at hospital, but the internet timed out and I lost my review. This one is far more detailed, more like a snippet at my life experience of living with boob hell... Younger years: Ever since I was a young girl at school, I realised I'd taken on the "large...

Googling before and after pic of reduction surgery and came across this website. I've read a lot of reviews and comments on here and everyone is so supportive. Glad I joined this community. I've wanted a reduction since I was a teen but never followed through with it because I was embarrassed.... READ MORE

Finally going for a much-needed and long awaited breast reduction and OMG I'm excited! I'm 39 and have 4 kids between 13-20. Thank you to everyone who posts on here and especially for your pics. It was really a huge help in deciding on surgery plus helped in finding a doctor so I really... READ MORE

I've had large "girls" ever since I can remember and they've never really been exactly where I thought they should be (at least according to society). The older I got, the heavier, bigger and longer they got. At 23 I married, and at 27 had my first child - definitely things started moving... READ MORE

Im ready for smaller breasts!!! I am 5"3 and weigh 145, I have always been big chested all my life since I was 13! I currently wear a 36D but this bra is too small! I was told I am bigger, like a DD! I have severe back pain due to arthitis in back and spine plus nerve damage in legs! The weight... READ MORE

It was exactly 10 years ago that I began to have an unhappy relationship with my breasts and an unhealthy relationship with my body. Puberty crept up on me when I was most vulnerable; my mother had then recently lost her 2 year battle with cancer and it was my first year of high school. I... READ MORE

I started thinking about this a couple of months ago. My breasts have always been large, but as I got older and gained weight (in my 20's I weighed 145 at 5'9", now I weight 185) my breasts got much larger. I have pretty much realized this is the weight I am going to stay at (-10 pounds maybe).... READ MORE

I am a 36 year old female with very large breast. I wasn't always like this after I had my boys, my breast became extremely big. Right now I am currently a 40H. Like Hello. And because of it my back gives me a lot of problems and my shoulders too. I decided to go to my Dr to see if I could get... READ MORE

My reduction has been approved by insurance :-) that part happened very quickly, maybe took 4 weeks. My preop is Sep 15 and my surgery is scheduled for October 14th. I have been pouring over every review I can find on this site and it has been so helpful! I wish someone would put together a... READ 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

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
