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 ›

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

I went to my first consultation with my soon to be surgeon.....well he said that he has no doubt that the insurance will cover my surgery being that I am a 44 HH.....He told me the worse news ever...that Ill have to have a free nipple graft, and that I will loose all of my sensation in my...

Like many of you, I have had a heavy chest since hitting puberty. I have been wanting to have this surgery since I was about 16 and finally got it it done on July 30, 2015. The procedure was covered by my insurance company and was performed by Dr. Joshua Kreithen in Sarasota, FL. I am hoping... READ MORE

Hello fellow busty ladies! This isn't really like me to post reviews, but I thought since this website has been so helpful to me that I would contribute as well. So here is my "boob" story: As a young girl I didn't really understand how boobs grew; I just thought I would wake one day and have... READ MORE

I've been researching breast reductions for years and I've finally decided to get the ball rolling ! I've asked around and decided my first action would be to change my insurance provider. I went with BCBS because of the ease of communication and they are pretty much excepted everywhere plus I... READ MORE

I have been wanting this surgery for the better part of a decade and now I am very happy to have finally managed to have it; I am now 5 weeks post-op. The decision was still rather hard to take, because of all the risks I knew about. I managed to find a very skilled surgeon, who uses a quite... READ MORE

I have been large breasted since grade 6. I remember having to shop for "granny" bras because I was too big to fit into anything cute. It was embarrassing to have to shower after gym class and put on this giant bra when a lot of the girls had barely anything and could wear cute bra tops or... READ MORE

Looking in the mirror and hating the reflection, was a daily occurrence for me. Oh you’re so lucky, I wish I had big boobs…is what I’d hear every time I’d complain about the size of my pendulous G cups! I felt anything but lucky. What’s so lucky about having pain in your neck and back,... READ MORE

Well, after many years of wanting and needing a BR but being afraid of the cost, I made an appointment with a plastic surgeon for a consult just to get an idea of where I stood. I had no idea I might be covered by insurance so we decided to give the approval process a try. Everyone in the... READ MORE

I've been lurking on realself since I booked in for my operation, and I have to say it made me feel a lot more at ease knowing how many other women have been and are going through the same experience. And now I've decided to write up my own personal journey! Warning: this will be long! I had my... READ MORE

I need a breast reduction so bad! I have been approved, waiting for surgery which could be days or months. I had my consultation with Dr. Shane Seal in Newfoundland, Canada. Since it's covered by MCP he didn't show me any before and after pics, I guess that is reserved for clients of his... READ MORE

I've decided to get a breast reduction. I'm 5' 1" , 140 pounds wearing a 36DD-DDD. I am so not proportioned correctly. My bust is way to big. I'm so excited to get this done. Nervous but excited. They're uneven, getting heavy and starting to droop. I'm going through insurance so I provided... READ MORE

Since I found this site a week ago I've been glued to my computer screen, I'm sure many of you can relate to that! :) I'll skip all the long details but as many others, mine developed suddenly and quite some time after my school friends, as I remember being jealous of their tiny bras when I had...

I've always been big busted, just found ways to manage it through exercise and dressing carefully. I'm 57, 5'7" tall and my weight has been between 135 (divorce stress in my 30's) and 160 (now), without ever going below a C-cup. I was my smallest after I breast-fed my two kids and now, 30 years...

I'm so excited for this day. My surgery is one week from today. I've been after a breast reduction since hifh school I'm in between a 38DD and a 38DDD. I want to go down to a 38D so that my body will still be proportioned right. I'm 5'4.5 and 210lbs. I've tried lossing weight but my breast have... READ MORE

Every morning I wake up with stiff hips, a searing pain through my mid-back, tight shoulders...that's if I'm lucky. Mostly I wake up several times throughout the night from the pain and inability to sleep through it. I have an expensive mattress, a wonderful pillow and raised hips (if that... READ MORE

When I started high school, I was a 34C. My sophomore year, I grew to a 34D at least, though I refused to buy bras big enough. My junior year I ended up starving myself and excessively exercising just to get rid of my large breasts, and it worked. However, I was extremely unhealthy and developed... READ MORE

Have had big breast since 6th grade they just grew overnight I guess... anyway I didn't really think anything of my breast being big until people made comments about them in middle school.. since then people would always joke about them leaving me depressed. Getting a breast reduction has been... READ MORE

I have been looking through this site for answers and it seems I need to just post and ask for the answers I am looking for. This is a wonderful site, but posting these kind of pics are not easy, but here goes. I am 51 5' 7", and 175. I have three kids and nursed them all. Like many of you I... READ MORE

I am size 44 DDD, have had large breasts since puberty, but as I've aged and gained weight, breasts have become very large, painful back and heavy chest, ongoing rash beneath breasts. Things not getting better and I want to do the surgery before I get older. I want to be a C cup. I have been... READ MORE
