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 ›

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

I have always had larger breasts - during my teenage years they just kept growing. Even when I lost weight the boobs themselves stayed the same. I used to be a 12F and am now a 10F. I just want them to go. Give me small boobs please! After thinking about having a breast reduction surgery for the... READ MORE

I've always had larger breasts. I was a D cup by the time I was 13, and it only got worse from there! I've been a 36 F/G (depending on the bra) since my 20s. In my early 30s, I started having back trouble. I never really connected it to my breasts - it was all in my lower back, and I was told I... READ MORE

Just had my consultation today with my the PS - he was great, he had an amazing personality and made me get over my anxiety about showing him my much too large breasts that not even my husband sees!

I went to Dr. Paul Lowenstein for some lipo, and asked him if he could reduce the soze of my areoles, and he agreed.'I was about a 40D. My breasts were far too heavy to support the weight. The "permanent" stitching he said he put in left me with infections and huge scars. Other doctors I've had... READ MORE

I'm am 37 years old, 5'2" and 150 lbs. Ever since puberty I have had larger than normal breasts but didn't think that they were too much of a hassle until after the birth of my Daughter 3 years ago. Like many of the other ladies who post on Real Self, my breasts became extremely saggy and lost... READ MORE

I have always been the girl with the "biggest boobs" since primary school. In high school, my breasts grew bigger and bigger until they were DDD. I tried losing weight but they never got smaller. Getting the right size bra is a huge problem for me. I get neck pains because of them and also some... READ MORE

When I started high school, I was a 34C. My sophomore year, I grew to a 34D at least, though I refused to buy bras big enough. My junior year I ended up starving myself and excessively exercising just to get rid of my large breasts, and it worked. However, I was extremely unhealthy and developed... READ MORE

After a lifetime of huge breasts, 2 children and a 100 lb weight loss.. I decided that my long, floppy breasts were not for me. I had severe lower back pain, shoulder pain, marks on my shoulders and sides from bras digging into them. Therefore, I went in search of a breast reduction. My primary... READ MORE

Hello everyone.

The Last Straw I was invited to a fraternity formal and it's in Florida on the beach. Unfortunately my date and I had just met and he asked me a month before it was road trip time.
