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 developed very early. 11 or 12. I have always been big, but after I had kids I got even bigger. I am tired of the sore back, neck and hard to sleep on my back, I feel like I'm suffocating at times. I started the process, now I have to wait to see what the insurance company says. Dr seems... READ MORE

I have always been big and i was a 36DDD and 5'3.5". I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. I opted for a reduction at the time of the lumpectomy. I'm not sure why but the plastic surgeon was three hours late to my surgery. It was scheduled for 830 but he was not available until almost... READ MORE

Consultation is July 7th. I have BCBSTX PPO plan, am nervous I won't be approved. I have had these problems since I was in 8th grade, so about 7 years. When I developed such large boobs, I decided to lose weight. So over the next two years, I lost about 30-35 pounds (I weighed 145) and it might... READ MORE

You've read the same story (different woman) over and over again on RealSelf...but truth is, no matter how many reviews you've read and photos you have studied...you still found courage, strength and confidence in the testimonies of each one of them. I'm no different from you but yet I hope... READ MORE

So my story, where to start? Well my first bra when I was 11 was a B cup and it all went down hill from there. Like so many of you on here I was the first to have boobs in my class so all the girls hated me and all the boys had a problem looking me in the eye. By the time I was 14 I was a DD... READ MORE

My doctors recommended the surgery after finding out I had a pinched nerve in the c6/c7 area of my neck. My reduction was covered by my VA Medical Benefits, not Tricare. I was worried about the pain and healing process. It's June 17th and I'm feeling pretty good. I still can't drive for... 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
