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 had this procedure done as I have dealt with a great deal of pain and discomfort, and setbacks having large breast. Often times, working out was an ordeal because sometimes 2 sports bras couldn't keep them from bothering me. Walking all day (I am a college student) would leave me in bed at... READ MORE

I am 20 years old, and am currently a size 36I, and my doctor is going to reduce my breasts to 36C. My breasts are very saggy and my aerolas have slipped down and have stretched out to a huge size, not to mention I have had severe back problems for several years now, therefore a breast reduction...

I was motivated to have a breast reduction after joining real self in January of this year. I knew I wanted a complete mommy make over by the end of this summer. I went ahead and had a consult in May with Dr. Stephenson in Snellville, Georgia. There were no hidden questions or doubts once I left... READ MORE

Thanks to every contributor on this site. You have all helped towards this point & a surgery date of August 24. As I live in Australia I have used Australian pricing and bra sizing. I will include a pic of one of my bra tags so the size will translate to all. I cannot wait to 1) Ditch... 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

I'm 31 years old with no kids and I am a 32G. I want to be able to go into Walmart and buy a cute $12.99 bra on a whim. With my current breasts, the only store in my area that carries my size is Macy's and that bra only comes in one style, and its ugly. Most of my bras are purchased online at... READ MORE

Had one consultation and didn't need a second opinion. Scheduled my reduction/lift. My boobs started growing after menopause....ugly....if I bend down my nipples tickle my toes. Hope to go from huge and pendulous to teenage and perky! 17 days to go..... Oh and I have severe, continual back... 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

I got approved the same day for my surgery and was scheduled to have it the next week but I got scared and moved the date to give me more time to think about it. I should have done this years ago. I was a 40DDD and I should end up around a C. I love the results so far. Today makes 2 weeks and my... READ MORE

I finally made the consultation with Dr. Ramiro Morales in the beginning of April and 2 weeks later I was approved by my insurance!!! My pre-op appointment is on May 19th and my surgery is scheduled for June 12!! My insurance plan has an $800 deductible and I'm responsible for 20% so my total... READ MORE

I am 24 years old, 5'10, I weigh 145 and it's pretty much all muscle. I honestly don't know what my "correct" size is, but the bra that I have that fits the best is a 32J. Every day consists of me wearing a regular bra that doesn't fit right, a sports bra that is entirely too small (try finding... READ MORE

Like most of us big breasted ladies I hit puberty early and was a C cup in middle school. Then a DD in high school, and when I stopped playing sports regularly they grew to a DDD. I've always been in moderately good shape and my frame is quite small so the girls just throw everything off balance... READ MORE
