Breast Reduction

WORTH IT RATING 3,137 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 ›

I was approved! I went to the Doctors office on Thursday and approved Monday. Very unexpected. I'm scheduled for December, and looking forward to my surgery. I can't wait for the relief. As of now, the estimate is 375 out the left and 250 out the right breast. I will update as things fall into... READ MORE

I have been waiting since September to have this approved!! I have always had big breast since I developed them in 5th grade. With each of my pregnancies they got larger and larger. I'm currently a 40 DDD/E hopefully will get down to a small C. My Doctor is Dr.William Brown in Denver Colorado.... READ MORE

This is my first post after reading all other reviews from last year. Ready to do my own review now. A week before my surgery, just had pre op. These are some of my thoughts and concerns: Nipple death? So scared because I was a smoker since 16 (smoked between 4-10 cigarettes a day). I've been... READ MORE

Ever since puberty I have been suffering with ever larger growing breasts. At 15 years old I had size E's which obviously drew a lot of negative attention, some of which has scarred me mentally. Now 11 years later I am at a GG cup. I never go out due to a developed social anxiety. I find it hard... READ MORE

After years and years and years of talking about a BR, I finally had a consultation this afternoon. Like many of us, my boobs were always too big for my body. Big boobs make what you do and wear overtly sexual. And that is just not me. Not only how I felt emotionally, but physically it's... READ MORE

I have read several reviews and now I'm writing one of my own. I'mm 33 years old and I've had big boobs since I hit puberty! I grew so much the summer between 6th and 7th grade that I was teased and accused of stuffing my bra. It was relentless for a year or so.... and even after that I would... READ MORE

Being only 5ft 4in and weighing over 200 lbs with very big breast, the pain in back and neck was almost unbearable. Constant headaches and migraines were another issue which made me look into reduction. Was the best decision I made. I have been big breasted my whole life and after 3 children my... READ MORE

After years of back and neck pain, and unwanted comments I made the decision to do something about it. From first meeting with Dr Williams to surgery day was 8 weeks. I was treated with respect all the way through and all of my questions were answered. Do research and get second opinions and... READ MORE

I am 23 years old and currently at 32KK. I started thinking about getting a breast reduction last fall but at the time decided against it because I was worried about losing my ability to breastfeed in the future but in May of this year I decided to go for it for my self esteem and to help my...

46 year old with large dense breast 36 ddd at 5'3, wearing a size 6 pants, but larger top due to broad shoulders and huge breast cups. Like the right, not crazy about the left...too boxy, heavy above nipple, nipple flat higher than the right. Hope this all shifts and rounds out with healing. ... READ MORE

I hit puberty at 11 and was one of the first girls to get larger breasts. I was always tramautized by a comment a boy made about them (he got the first sexual harrassment detention at my jr. high for making the comment to me. I cried in high school when I had to get a D bra - still remember... READ MORE

I've had a chest since 5th grade. I've always been embarrassed and self conscious about having something most girls my age didn't and getting the wrong kind of attention for it. I've had neck pain, lower back pain I've got the dents in my shoulders where my bra straps sit. I get that... READ MORE

My story is pretty much like everyone else. Back and shoulder aches. I am done having kids. Had a hysterectomy in sep of 2013. Still have one ovary so have not gone through menopause. Not sure what my boobs will do then. I went in December for my consultation. Dr was very nice. I felt he... READ MORE

I came home from work to find an acceptance letter in the mail from my insurance company! I never thought they would approve it. I've always been bigger. I'm super tall, big hips, and yes...big boobs. Growing up it always bothered me that I couldn't wear tank tops and bathing suits like my... READ MORE

Some background info I am 35 years old, a type 1 diabetic and have not had children. I went from not being able to purchase bras unless at a specialty store to a 34 dd. I had Dr Andrade for my carpel tunnel surgery in 2009 and was referred back to him for my breast reduction. I was very fearful... READ MORE

Had my reduction with Transform, by Mr Paul Clarke. Reduced from 36FF to 36D. Very happy with service from Transform staff, from the patient coordinator and nurse in the clinic, to the nurses and health care assistants in The Pines (Transform's Manchester hospital), where I was looked after...

So since I was about 18 my breast have been pretty large. At the moment I am able to fit into a 40DD bra however when going by online measurement tips I should be a 40G. I have been obsessing over this website for a couple of weeks. I have two consultations scheduled the first is on 6/25 and the... READ MORE

I have a question. I got approved for a breast reduction but not a penniculectomy. If I appeal will they change their mind about the breast reduction and not give me either? I am so nervous and scared what I should do? I had gastric bypass in 2014 and have hanging skin. I'm greatful about the BR.... READ MORE

I have been stalking this site for a while now, and it's really what gave me the courage to go and get checked out to see if I was able to get a breast reduction, and I qualified! I am 22 years old, 5'9", and 130 pounds, and currently a 34DDD, so I am all boobs! I'm super excited about the... READ MORE

I was motivated to have a breast reduction after joining real self in January of this year. I knew I wanted a complete mommy make over by the end of this summer. I went ahead and had a consult in May with Dr. Stephenson in Snellville, Georgia. There were no hidden questions or doubts once I left... READ MORE
