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 breast implants put in 11 years ago and after having my 3rd son and breast fed him for over 8 months the pretty 36d went to a saggy heavy 36g, yuck! So I'm only 24 hours after surgery and the pain has been been very minimal today, I can not believe it, yesterday was a bit rough but I can't... READ MORE

By the time I was 12 years old I had C cup breasts. I hated the attention this drew to me and the interference with my love for netball and long distance running. I also started taking oral contraceptives to regulate my menstrual cycle when I was fifteen, and developed into a DD-E cup in what... READ MORE

Just want to be smaller , pain free and able to fit clothes. Have been big breasted since about 18. Increasing after each child. Have had MRIs on neck and back. Disc problems I'm sure due to bad posture. Won't excerise any more as I always end up with pulled muscles and back pain. Weight has... 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, like so many of you, have had back and neck pain for years. I have wanted to have a BR for so long I cannot remember when I started thinking about it. I checked it out about 10 years ago and my insurance at that time said no! I was, of course, discouraged after that. I figured that if I... READ MORE

I have been thinking about a breast reduction for a very long time. I have lost and gained weight all of my life. A few years ago I had lap band surgery which I lost around 70 pounds. The procedure has kept my weight in check but I have a long way to go. I work out everyday 10 miles biking and... READ MORE

Let's me start from the beginning. I started getting breasts when I was six years old. Yes I mean six as in grade one. My mom took me to the doctors to make sure there wasn't something terribly wrong with me. By the time I was in jr high I was a C and by high school I was wearing an 38E and... READ MORE

I have been self-conscious about my breasts since I started growing them in the 4th grade. By the time I was in high school I was 5 ft 1 and wore a D cup. Every time we would go bra shopping I needed a bigger cup size and would cry. When I reached college I was a DDD. I got married and my first... READ MORE

Hello everyone! I have a consultation scheduled for a month from now. My motivation for getting a reduction mostly stems from being in pain and discomfort every day.

Large breast since I was a teen! I have ALWAYS wanted a reduction and decided if insurance approves I'm going for it! Consultation with a diff Dr. last summer, recommended by friend. I can't speak for his work, but wasn't impressed when I met him. Dr. was dry, flat and just ok. Insurance denied... READ MORE

I'd been struggling with uneven breasts since I was a teenager. I had a reduction on my left side when I was 18 to try to correct it. It didn't help me to feel more confident really and it had been something that I stressed about daily for the past 10 years. Finally I decided I wouldn't let... READ MORE

My breasts began growing when I was 12, by the time I was 14 I was hearing catcalls like "boobs!" when I was walking the 12 blocks to my girlfriend's house. I was very self conscious. I was quite active in sports and would wear my sisters bra(which was tight being smaller) when I ran my events.... READ MORE

Crazy, it's tomorrow!! I did not think I'd post but I have garnered so much from all your experiences. Insurance denied (Aetna) and denied appeal so here we go. It's worth it to me to pay.
