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 ›

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

I started thinking about this a couple of months ago. My breasts have always been large, but as I got older and gained weight (in my 20's I weighed 145 at 5'9", now I weight 185) my breasts got much larger. I have pretty much realized this is the weight I am going to stay at (-10 pounds maybe).... READ MORE

A brief history of my tits: I have had huge boobs since I was 13 when I first dreamed of a breast reduction. They caused me physical pain. They were cumbersome. They were ridiculously out of proportion with my body no matter my weight. At just 13 I was getting creepy attention from men. My mom... READ MORE

Wow! I had my consultation yesterday and got a phone call today that my insurance is covering my surgery! We scheduled it for February 5, 2015! I am so excited! I am 31 yrs old, 5'3" and 135lbs, petite build and I wear a 34H! I can't wait to get this weight off my chest and back. I mentioned to... READ MORE

I was motivated by the sheer reduction of pain in my shoulders, I'm 1.5 weeks in, and it's not as bad as I thought. My physician Dr Manolis was patient had great bed side manor and was willing to answer all me questions and concerns. I can post some before pics below. I'm still in the healing... READ MORE

So far! Well to start I've had back problems from being top heavy all my life. The past few years my back has gotten considerably worse...I've tried it all and still no comfort! Finally my Dr. Asked in his serious voice is this is something I'd consider & I said yes! So I scheduled my consult .... READ MORE

I am a 57 y/o female who recently had breast reduction/lift/liposuction procedure by Ronald Friedman, MD. I am only about 9 days post-op now and couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. I had extremely saggy breasts, size 38 DDD, with a large amount of "side boob". Dr. Friedman has... READ MORE

I really didn't think my situation was bad enough that insurance would approve it. I wear a 34J I am 5"1" and now weigh 155. When I first started looking into it I weighed 172. Believe or not when the PS told me that he thought that Anthem BCBS of Ohio would approve me if gave me the... READ MORE

I finally got it done yesterday. Stayed overnight in hospital (Portsmouth Naval Hospital). I'm feeling okay. Been home for a few hours. I'm managing my pain with Norco, Celebrex, stool softener and miralax. Eating okay. I have some neck pain and back tightness I'm guessing from sleeping upright... READ MORE
