Breast Reduction

WORTH IT RATING 3,037 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 ›

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

Hi everyone, I am self funding private surgery in the UK, second time for me as I had a reduction on the NHS 37 years ago, then went from about 34H to 34D. I had an incision I can now find no information on - like a vertical line reduction only my line was horizontal, scar round nipples and... READ MORE

Hello, all. I've been reading many reviews and I've decided to finally write my own experiences. I just had my breast reduction on 09/11/2013 about 8:00 in the morning. I didn't get out until noon. I opted to stay overnight at the hospital which I'm glad I did during my pre-op appointment with... READ MORE
