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 ›

Before walking into Dr. Oppenheimer office, I was a 33 year old dental assistant with 2 kids a hubby and a rack of 44 H breast. I would walking into places and people would judge me right of the back as being a dumb stripper or prostitute trying to take someone man ???? But in actuality I like... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I'm 22, 5'4", and about 120 llbs. I've had some "final straw" moments this summer that have ended in tears and am now considering a BR more than ever. The number one thing keeping me from doing it is the possibility of nipple sensation loss. The second thing is I have seen a lot of... READ MORE

First I just want to thank all of you ladies for sharing your experiences. I have read so many of your reviews and it's really helpful to hear what to expect from people who have been through it already. I'm 5'11", 195 lbs, DDD. I've been considering breast reduction for years. When I was 22... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I've been reading posts all night. I'm 43 and a 38H. I've had boobs since 4th grade - ugh! I'm overweight but after losing 50 lbs my cup size didn't budge. I've wanted this surgery since I was about 20. My insurance denied the procedure stating that I didn't try enough... READ MORE

I am scheduled for January 13 and I am so excited that I can hardly stand it. I find myself trolling for before and after pictures to get an idea of what they could look like. I would like to be a full b small c. The dr was thinking a full c. I would rather take too much and wear some padding... READ MORE

I am so excited to have found this site! There is so much information and I'm glad that there are so many people out there with my same story. I finally got insurance approval to get a breast reduction last week, and I cried! I have had large breasts (size C) since I was 12 years old. Before... READ MORE

Im 22 years old, 5'1 and weigh about 150lbs. Ive always had big boobs which caused a lot of back and neck problems for me. When I turned 18 I decided to get a breast reduction. I had the consultation and everything and was so excited. About a week later I found out that insurance didn't cover... READ MORE

Well I had my surgery yesterday still in a lot pain and very swollen. I have been thinking of getting this surgery for a few years. I have been back and forth reading reviews on real self. I decided to go ahead with the surgery. The worst part for me right now is laying down and getting up, I... READ MORE

Surgery is paid today, super excited. Currently saggy 34D - going for a small youthful B cup. Have been dreaming of spaghetti strap tops and backless dresses my WHOLE life!!! OMG!! I can't believe I'm doing it!... The nurse and PS were super nice today at the preop apptmt., put me so much at... READ MORE

I am a 57 y/o female who recently had breast reduction/lift/liposuction procedure by Ronald Friedman, MD. I am only about 9 days post-op now and couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. I had extremely saggy breasts, size 38 DDD, with a large amount of "side boob". Dr. Friedman has... READ MORE

I hope to track my progress from booking to recovery, in the hope it will inform and support anyone else looking to go through the same thing - its a big scary procedure and I know personally I was hungry for every detail I could find to help me plan my way through it. I have wanted this for a... READ MORE

I am writing a short review because this site helped me get ready for this change. I have a similar story to many others, major back pain, headaches and shoulder grooving caused me to finally go to see the Dr regarding a BR. I was lucky to find Dr. Turkeltaub through this site and he was... READ MORE

I have been waiting for a BR, but I just put it off. Finally, I decided I was tired of readjusting my bra EVERYDAY, because the straps were cutting in my shoulders. Not to mention, when I work out, these bags slowed me down (even while I was wearing TWO bras). I went in April 2014 for a... READ MORE

I have been on this site for quite sometime now dreaming about having a Breast Reduction. Well, I have finally taken the first steps! My story is the same as all of you: I've had large breasts since puberty, I am self conscious, terrible back pain, and I desire to feel more confident,... READ MORE

Was in desperate need of a breast reduction when I was referred to Dr. Andrade at Southlake Regional Hospital in Newmarket, Ontario and had my surgery in November 2014. I felt very comfortable and at ease right from my consult appt. I am so pleased with the results! Should have done this years... READ MORE

I decided to join this forum now that I recovered, as it is really hard to find stories of infection out there. They are very rare, so that is partly why. They do happen, though. I chose the first Doctor I interviewed. She was wonderful and I knew within the first 2 minutes that she was the... READ MORE

I have read about a million other reviews on here before making my decision to do this and I am 100% ready. I suppose I should share some things about myself! I am 19 and, like most other people that have gotten this procedure, I developed very early in the breast area. I was in 4th grade I had... READ MORE

So hello ladies :) I am due to have my breast reduction this Saturday the 6th September. I am in the UK and paying privately. The cost for me here is £6000 so probably around $9000. I am a size 36H and I hate my boobs. They seemed to appear over night and gradually got bigger and saggier! I am... READ MORE

I must say I was not like half the ladies on here that developed early. When I was in 8th grade everyone had Breasts, except me. After I started 9th grade and my Period came i started to bloom. What i hated most were the stretch marks. Ugh! But anyways im gonna fast forward this a bit. When I... READ MORE

I tried to submit a review whilst I was at hospital, but the internet timed out and I lost my review. This one is far more detailed, more like a snippet at my life experience of living with boob hell... Younger years: Ever since I was a young girl at school, I realised I'd taken on the "large...
