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 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

I am planning a reduction for early Jan I hope. I am currently looking up docs etc. i live in a small town and on the cal/nevada border and have to stay in cal for insurance. Most Docs are 2 hrs away. I have been reading tons of posts here and it has been a huge help in preparing. I did get... 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

Shoulder pain is no fun, and having huge boobs is no picnic either. I've always been pretty chesty but as menopause came on I seemed to just keep getting bigger and bigger. Enough. So glad I worked up the courage to go in for a consultation. My surgery went great and so far so good! Looking... READ MORE

Hi ladies, I decided to make a review and share my story, since reading all of yours has been so helpful. I am 27 years old, 4'11" and currently 125 pounds. I am a 34H, which looks ridiculous on me. I have a small frame and have always been a very petite girl with huge boobs. Over the last... READ MORE

My breast didnt really start to get big until after i had my son in 2008. Before that i considered myself to be pretty active also doing 8 years in the military. When i first got pregnant with my son i was a size 34-C. After that my breast went to a 38DD seems like overnight. Over the past few... READ MORE

I have really large breasts (but so does most everyone else in this forum) and a fairly small frame. I recently lost about #60 and my frame just can't hold it all up anymore. My insurance approved a BR for shoulder grooving, back neck and shoulder pain, and numbness in my arms. My surgeon... READ MORE

I'm scheduled for a BR next week, Tuesday, September 23rd. I'm very excited (and a tad bit nervous) to finally have my reduction. I have always had big boobs which has caused me to have back, shoulder, and neck pain. My bra size is 38DD; with my BR I should reduce my cup to a C/D. I found... READ MORE

I initially wasn't going to post anything but finally decided to because reading the posts of those who previously had the surgey done gave me so much confidence going into the procedure. For as long as I can remember I have had large breasts, by the time I was 23 years old I was a 36HH. Since... READ MORE
