A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, with 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 produce a smaller, perkier bust, but it can help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

Hello all, like a lot of you I have been stalking this site for quite a while as I debate and torture my family and friends with my plan for a reduction. They are all truly sick of discussing it now so its your turn! I am 44 years old, a mother of 3, and currently squashed into a 34gg bra. I... READ MORE

Ok....So I've lurked here for about 2 years, but things have changed.... I'm in Ireland, and until recently our medical aid (here it's called medical card) covered breast reductions only for the seriously impaired people! After years of dealing with male doctors for the continuous cysts and... READ MORE

Today I scheduled my breast reduction for 10/14/14. I am very nervous about having the surgery. I have had back problems for 10+ years and I had lower backer surgery when I was 15. My back felt much better after the surgery. But once I graduated college and started working at a desk job, my... READ MORE

Pre-op today. Got my mammogram and will get my chest X-ray tomorrow. Dr said I should be down to a C-cup after surgery. DDD to C... Outstanding! Although my insurance has approved the BR in still worried about out of pocket cost. Still not stopping me from having this done, I'm tired of all the... READ MORE

By age 11 my size passed C. On our first bra shopping trip, my Mom did not believe me when she handed me tiny training bras to try on, and I showed her the 34C I needed instead. I had already grown bigger at 11 than Mom and older sister ever got, so no more hand-me-downs. Junior high was... READ MORE

I developed my breasts between 8th and 9th grade, from bee stings to a C cup! I received a lot of unwanted attention from boys, and girls alike. I was always "the girl with the big boobs". I have never, ever been comfortable in my own skin. I tried to get insurance to cover it when I was 19, but... READ MORE

I will be having breast reduction surgery in a few days and I have to say the process of getting approved has been relatively easy. I did call my insurance company prior to speaking to a PS to see if I even had any qualifications and I met them all. Thankful for a great PS staff that is very... READ MORE

I was always embrassed and wore like a jacket to cover up because I embrassed that I was so much developed than the other girls. Of course the my boyfriend loves me having big breast I... READ MORE

So...I have talked about a breast reduction for years, but didn't really think that I would ever actually go through with it. I am so tired of having to buy tops extra big so that it will fit across my boobs. I'm tired of not being able to get cute empire waist tops or maxi dresses because my... READ MORE

I am excited and nervous. I am working out daily and loosing more weight. My PS is Dr. Pyle. Ever since I got information about this site I have been looking at all the reviews and q&a. Is there anything that helped make recovery easier? I weighed 209 when I started loosing weight. I am at... READ MORE

I'm 38 and weigh 138lbs. I have an inkling I would actually be petite if I weren't so top heavy... In the UK I have had real problems getting my GP to take my requests seriously and have been fobbed off FOUR TIMES (there was the female doctor who told me they couldn't be that bad because I was...

Hello! I am 21 yrs old and I have absolutely hated my tits ever since I've had them. I developed early and I'm pretty sure I was the first one of my classmates. I've thought about doing it before when I was about 16 and I even called some places to ask questions. As much as I wanted to do it... READ MORE

Here I am, finally! I'm 63 years old and have hated my big, saggy breasts for decades. I'm 5'2", 140 pounds, and wear a 40D minimizer but I'm pretty much busting out of it. Within the last year, I was diagnosed with a torn shoulder ligament on one side, and I'm pretty sure I have the same thing... READ MORE

I joined Real Self several months ago, but since my surgery was scheduled out so far I thought I'd wait until the month before to give my story. So here goes... My surgery date is scheduled for October 6, 2014. Unlike a lot of ladies I wasn't overly large at an early age or after pregnancy. ... READ MORE
