WORTH IT RATING 2,124 reviews over 24 months
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 went out yesterday from the clinic. My breast reduction operation went very well. The surgeon only took away that 180g each side, it is far from the 300 required by CPAM for support, but he did not want me to take off too much. I will make a C cup that's what I wanted.The transaction remains... READ MORE

I interviewed several board certified plastic surgeons in my area and chose Dr. Rubis. I'm 5'7" 135 lbs and 32G. I have had one child. I'm fairly active, but have lots of upper back, neck, and shoulder pain- which increased since having a child. Just being in an upright position all day with... READ MORE

From other reviews I'm kind of behind the I'll write a small summary of what has happened so far and update from here. This all kind of snowballed when I talked to 2nd pain doctor about a possible BR. My first one in NYC was very much against it. Not sure why, but I assume it's because... READ MORE

I have been contemplating have a breast reduction for at least 10 years. The main reason why I haven’t really moved forward is mainly fear. However, my breast are now giving me so much discomfort. Last year I went for a consolation with one plastic surgeon and I really was not impressed. ... READ MORE

For a small person I have very large breasts. I'm a 30GG however wear 32GG, I have had problems with getting dresses in a size 10, problems getting shirts. My decision to have a breast reduction is based on frustration and the desire to have small breast. I have had my first consultation and... READ MORE

Backstory -> First Consultation I've had a sizeable rack since I was about 11 years old. I'm 23 now. After learning how to properly fit a bra 3-4 years ago, losing some weight (that I later gained back, but hey, it happens), and getting the chance to go to a chiropractor for a while, most of my...

I'm 18 years old and a senior in high school. I've had large boobs since I was in elementary school, the final size before my surgery was a DDD left breast and an F right breast. There was a major size difference, almost 300g more in my right than in my left. I am just barely 5'3 and I weighed... READ MORE

Last week I received my insurance approval for surgery. Currently, I'm 125lbs.; and I wear a bra size of 30-32E (ideal size is a 31E). This surgery is something I have wanted for the past 7-8 years. After my mid-February consultation, I was surprised at how easily it was for me to: obtain... READ MORE

Since I was 12 I developed large great (genetic in my family as well), by Jr. High, I was a "D" cup. After children, breast feeding, life long lost and gain of weight and after gastric by pass surgery, my breast were handing past my belly bottom. I was horrified to gather it all up and try to...

After becoming fit, I lost the fat around my rib cage. I didn't realize how much it was supporting my breasts. As I went from a 38 to a 34, my breasts became harder to hold still during my runs. My breasts didn't decrease in size despite losing 40 pounds of fat. I had scars from the chafing on... READ MORE

It’s still unreal to me that I actually had the surgery done – I had it rescheduled twice before actually going forward with it. You may think that lugging around 40HH/I breasts for over 20 years would be enough reason for me to jump at the opportunity, but I was so scared about actually... READ MORE

Suffered with back pain for years, even before my children. MRI of spine showed abnormalities. My insurance is covering the procedure. I have been very unhappy with the appearance of my breast. I am hoping this procedure will help releived neck and back pain. Very tired due to Percocet will... READ MORE

I want to thank all the other ladies on RealSelf for being so open and honest about their experiences. I don't think I would have been as calm as I was if I had not read all your success stories. I can't remember when it all started. From what I can recall, I already had fairly large breasts... READ MORE

I just had my surgery yesterday! This forum helped me a lot so I'm going to post in hopes of helping others. I'm 44 years years old and was a DD and sometimes a DDD, depending on weight and the time of the month. I've consered doing this for a very long time. I am a cyclist and trying to... READ MORE

My bra size was a 50M. I had 11 pounds of breast removed. In a few weeks after surgery my breasts had black scabs. The smell was horrible. I leaked green and yellow fluids for months. I was on antibiotics for 36 days. Doctor cut the black scab off in office. Nipple gone...Now I need 4-5... READ MORE

The girls have go to go I just can't do it any longer. Ivebeen contemplating this for a while and decided that it is a go. The pain in my neck and back has become unbearable. The determining factor for me was when I wanted to become more active. Due to the size of my breasts it hurt especially... READ MORE

I developed big breasts very early - in the summer between grade 6 and 7 I went from a 34A to a 34D, and just kept growing. Throughout highschool, where I was an athlete, I had to wear three bras for practice: one regular underwire bra, to keep my breasts from chafing together, one regular... READ MORE

To begin with I am not one to go to doctors... Sorry to those that read this that are. I have been big chested since the 5th grade and finally made the decision to get the reduction I needed. For the women out there that are unsure if this is the route they want to go, my best advice is when... READ MORE

I had been talking about having surgery on my breasts for a little over five years, thinking it about for even longer. I finally decided what better birthday gift to myself was to address pieces of me I was tired if dealing with. I'm the proud mother of two awesome boys and proud of the body... READ MORE

I should have been started writing aboout my decision to get a breast reduction. My friend initially told me about it 2 years ago. I put it on the backburner because of other obligations. The first time I went to see a surgeon he was very off putting and kind of made me rethink my decision. Two... READ MORE
