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 have wanted a BR for years. I finally went for a consult in late August. My insurance company approved me on the first go around. The fact that this was approved right away, made me feel better. I was not being vain, it really is justified! I am looking forward to less neck pain and smaller... READ MORE

Well thought now I have plucked up courage will write my review. I am 51,5ft 6 and at present 12stone. My breasts developed at an early age 11and I remember being in bra from junior school. Always felt uncomfortable with them and fed up wearing size 14 skirts and 16 to 18 tops. Men always stare... READ MORE

By age 11 my size passed C. On our first bra shopping trip, my Mom did not believe me when she handed me tiny training bras to try on, and I showed her the 34C I needed instead. I had already grown bigger at 11 than Mom and older sister ever got, so no more hand-me-downs. Junior high was... READ MORE

Hey hey hey beautiful women!! I've always been heavier chested then most of my peers through my schooling days as I completed basic training into my 20s I stood at a friendly C then D cup. After having a miscarriage then my daughter within 6 months span, they filled all the way up to a DDD and... READ MORE

I'm an exotic dancer who was just very displeased with my breasts and stomach area, I've always had big breast that sagged pretty bad ... I will admit I should have researched more docs ... Immediately I noticed after surgery I noticed that my breast were uneven. The left is much bigger,he told... READ MORE

Ready to have smaller boobies!! Insurance has denied due to an exclusion that there is no way around, so my husband and I are paying for it. The surgery is scheduled for September 23, 2014 and my pre-op appointment is on September 3, 2014. Very very nervous about this being the right... READ MORE

Fantastic!!!! I cannot express my love for this surgeon enough. I walked in because I am tired of the migraines, backaches, and immobility my 42G breasts are causing. He looked at them, and 1 week later my insurance approved. Was called for my pre Opp immediately..... Just completed that... READ MORE

I am a 46yo, 5'3" 130lb mom of 1. I am a 30GG. My whole life I have been a 28DDD or 28F. After 40 I gained a few lbs. I am hoping to be reduced to a large B. I play tennis and am pretty active so I am trying to lose 15 lbs before the surgery. My husband is against my BR. But he's letting... READ MORE

So I went to a few consultations and decided on a doctor, Dr. Roland E Finger. He was charming and funny and has had over 40 years of plastic surgery experience. He and his staff made me comfortable and spoke with me about the risks and the results I can expect to receive. I was looking for a C... READ MORE

I started puberty at a very young age and by the time I reached the first year of secondary school I was already a D cup. It gained unwanted attention from men and boys and I felt like it made me feel i had to grow up quicker than my my friends who still looked like 'girls'. Don't get me wrong,... READ MORE

Hi Ladies, I am to the point I can't take the pain anymore!! I need a breast reduction SO BADLY. I have always had big breasts, always. All 4 of my aunties have/had over excessive breasts, and both my sisters have had breast reductions. I am hurting; my back, shoulders, neck, arms. I don't... READ MORE

July 28th is getting close. I am finding myself trying to get ready for a surgery that is still a couple weeks away. I'm not really stressing about it though. If I start thinking about it, I tried find a solution. For instance, I started thinking about my hair, and whose going to wash it? When... READ MORE

I am 23 years old and I am getting my breast reduction in less than a month! I feel really uncomfortable posting my boobs online, but this website has helped me a lot, so I thought I would share in hopes that I can help someone too. I grew boobs early and should have been wearing a bra... 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...

Im ready for smaller breasts!!! I am 5"3 and weigh 145, I have always been big chested all my life since I was 13! I currently wear a 36D but this bra is too small! I was told I am bigger, like a DD! I have severe back pain due to arthitis in back and spine plus nerve damage in legs! The weight... READ MORE

It was exactly 10 years ago that I began to have an unhappy relationship with my breasts and an unhealthy relationship with my body. Puberty crept up on me when I was most vulnerable; my mother had then recently lost her 2 year battle with cancer and it was my first year of high school. I... READ MORE

I am a 36 year old female with very large breast. I wasn't always like this after I had my boys, my breast became extremely big. Right now I am currently a 40H. Like Hello. And because of it my back gives me a lot of problems and my shoulders too. I decided to go to my Dr to see if I could get... READ MORE

Hello all. I have been following the stories on realself for quite some time, and now that my insurance company has scheduled my surgery, I thought it would be a prime time to begin sharing my own. All of you ladies have been so helpful in normalizing this experience, and all of the feelings... READ MORE

After waiting two years in line for my breast reduction here in Norway, the hospital called me Friday and announced that they had an opening Monday (last week). So, -I suddenly have smaller boobs! They removed 740g on the right one, and 720g on the left. That is about one and a half milk carton!... READ MORE

Okay, let me start by saying thank you to everyone who posts on here. I combed through all of your stories and it has all helped me so much. A little about me, I am 24, 5'9", 155lbs. I have had big boobs since 9th grade. Pretty much over summer it seemed like they grew from nothing to a c cup in... READ MORE
