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 want to thank all the other ladies on RealSelf for being so open and honest about their experiences. I don't think I would have been as calm as I was if I had not read all your success stories. I can't remember when it all started. From what I can recall, I already had fairly large breasts... READ MORE

I am having my surgery sat. Nov 29 th. Was supposed to be the 20th. So I'm going out of my mind right now. My primary doc says don't back out. It will be worth it. I M so nervous but excited at the Same time. I just want the weight off of. My breast. They hurt and I'm so... READ MORE

I've been thinking about a breast reduction for quite a while now. I've always been busty, but it's never really bothered me. I always have thought "Oh, they're not that big. They're pretty portioned to my body." I saw a few pictures from an event during the summer, and realized they are bigger... READ MORE

I just had my surgery yesterday! This forum helped me a lot so I'm going to post in hopes of helping others. I'm 44 years years old and was a DD and sometimes a DDD, depending on weight and the time of the month. I've consered doing this for a very long time. I am a cyclist and trying to... READ MORE

My bra size was a 50M. I had 11 pounds of breast removed. In a few weeks after surgery my breasts had black scabs. The smell was horrible. I leaked green and yellow fluids for months. I was on antibiotics for 36 days. Doctor cut the black scab off in office. Nipple gone...Now I need 4-5... READ MORE

The girls have go to go I just can't do it any longer. Ivebeen contemplating this for a while and decided that it is a go. The pain in my neck and back has become unbearable. The determining factor for me was when I wanted to become more active. Due to the size of my breasts it hurt especially... READ MORE

Wow!! I have received NHS Funding for a breast reduction and I am over the moon! I am 35yrs with. 6yr son. I'm a size 36GG (at last measurement a few years ago!). Typically a size 12/14. I have thought about a breast reduction for years, but never believed I would be large enough to warrant one... READ MORE

I developed big breasts very early - in the summer between grade 6 and 7 I went from a 34A to a 34D, and just kept growing. Throughout highschool, where I was an athlete, I had to wear three bras for practice: one regular underwire bra, to keep my breasts from chafing together, one regular... READ MORE

My history with large breasts go back many years. I started wearing a bra when I was 9 and by the time I was in high school I was a 36 DD. I was into sports and hiking. I bound them when I was playing softball because I was teased that I would give myself a bloody nose when I ran. I have had... READ MORE

To begin with I am not one to go to doctors... Sorry to those that read this that are. I have been big chested since the 5th grade and finally made the decision to get the reduction I needed. For the women out there that are unsure if this is the route they want to go, my best advice is when... READ MORE

I had been talking about having surgery on my breasts for a little over five years, thinking it about for even longer. I finally decided what better birthday gift to myself was to address pieces of me I was tired if dealing with. I'm the proud mother of two awesome boys and proud of the body... READ MORE

We'll I have had big boobs for as long as I recall. My first bra size was a D or DD... I think just skipped the other sizes. All my life I was told I would eventually have to get a reduction but I figured it would be after kids or when they start to basically drag the floor. I loved my boobs but... READ MORE

NOTE: You will notice some photoshopping on the top of my left breast, this is because I have a very recognizable tattoo. It is the only thing that will be edited. So to start off... I feel very strange putting pictures of my boobs on the internet, but realself was crucial to me making the... READ MORE

I should have been started writing aboout my decision to get a breast reduction. My friend initially told me about it 2 years ago. I put it on the backburner because of other obligations. The first time I went to see a surgeon he was very off putting and kind of made me rethink my decision. Two... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I am self funding private surgery in the UK, second time for me as I had a reduction on the NHS 37 years ago, then went from about 34H to 34D. I had an incision I can now find no information on - like a vertical line reduction only my line was horizontal, scar round nipples and... READ MORE

I must say I was not like half the ladies on here that developed early. When I was in 8th grade everyone had Breasts, except me. After I started 9th grade and my Period came i started to bloom. What i hated most were the stretch marks. Ugh! But anyways im gonna fast forward this a bit. When I... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I've been reading posts all night. I'm 43 and a 38H. I've had boobs since 4th grade - ugh! I'm overweight but after losing 50 lbs my cup size didn't budge. I've wanted this surgery since I was about 20. My insurance denied the procedure stating that I didn't try enough... 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 opted to stay overnight at the hospital which I'm glad I did during my pre-op appointment with... 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

Physically, I was an early bloomer. The "girls" have been with me since my early teens. I never wore a training bra, and by high school, cheerleading meant arriving 20mins earlier to strap them down. Throughout the years I'd had the gumption, but not the green to part ways from what had become a... READ MORE
