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 ›

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 decided to post my progress on here because so many lovely ladies have allowed me to see their results so I know what to expect! Long awaited breast reduction- 21 year old with large, sagging breasts, back and neck pain, irritation underneath, trapping them underneath me if I sleep braless...... 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

DISCLAIMER First of all, I beg your pardon about my command of English. Although I work as an English teacher, I’m not an English native speaker, so it’s possible that you find that at some points my English is a bit crooked or even poor. I’ll try to be as clear as possible. Apart from... READ MORE

Just found out today insurance approved my BR AND LIFT!!!... I am so excited I cannot see straight!!!!!... I was approved 7 years ago and backed out because insurance requirements were going to leave me with little to no breast tissue... but having a different insurance company has now lowered...

First I have to say that I've been addicted to this site for the past few months. All your stories and advice help me feel like I'm not alone in this. I have family that's very supportive but it's so nice when someone else knows EXACTLY what your going thru. I developed large breasts between 6th... READ MORE

Denied for breast reduction!!!! In June 2015, I began my journey and effort to seek approval for a breast reduction. The final straw was my getting a fungal (ring worm) infection which started under my breast. I've had it for over three months. I have always had upper neck pain, shoulder pain,... READ MORE

I have thought about this surgery for a while as I suffer from poor posture and upper back problems. I used to run but can't now even with a sports bra as it is too uncomfortable. My mum has very big boobs too and wishes she had had something done about it. Have been for consultation but started... READ MORE
