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

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

Hello! Instead of launching into my story, the one that we all share (D in 8th grade, DD in 10th, G in 12th, and G-HH now), I'm going to talk about my experience so far. I've wanted a breast reduction since at least the summer before high school. Clearly, I was young, so surgery was out of the... READ MORE

Dr Curran was an amazing surgeon! Consult was March 27,2015 surgery date was April 10,2015. There was no pain what so ever and I only had to go for one post op visit cause I was healing so well. This was the best decision beside getting married and having my children that I ever made. Dr Curran... READ MORE

Like many others on here, I can't even remember the last time my boobs were small or at least a "normal" size. I can't remember when I started wearing a bra but I was stuffing myself into a "C" in high school. It wasn't pretty! My weight has fluctuated over the years, as has my boob size. I... READ MORE
