So far the nerves are truly the worst thing about this procedure. I am so nervous that it's killing me, but I am ready to get it over with. I really want this, not only because of the size of my breasts and the posture they give me, but the asymmetry between them. I am scheduled for 5/29 and it cannot come quickly enough. The fact that it's a week away is the greatest relief ever. I have been... more

I had breast reduction on March 16th and am thrilled with my results not quite 3 weeks later. My surgeon, Dr. Stewart Wang is brilliant. He is very meticulous and highly skilled, which has resulted in a great recovery.
Prior to surgery I was very nervous not knowing what size I would end up. I've always had an hourglass shaped figure, and I was worried I would be left with a totally different... more
I am extremely unhappy. My breasts were reduced and came out uneven and square. I had asked for my star gazing nipples (which resulted from a previous breast reduction surgery done 7 years earlier by another doctor) to be moved downward and Dr. Chong said she could do that and I would be "so happy". The change was so insignificant that I am unable to tell they were moved at all and my... more

I was not in very much pain for the first two weeks but the last two weeks are very painful. I didn't realize it was going to hurt so bad. Yesterday I was better so hopefully they will not be so angry! So far I think I will really like having a normal size and buy bras off the rack. Best of all, the way he did it my chest wrinkles went away. I look like a your girl?????? more
I had my first doctor visit yesterday and already decided that I like the plastic surgeon. He took his time with me and was very nice. I was told I will have surgery in about 2 months. I need to have a mammogram first. I've never had one. I've been reading previous reviews. Thank you ladies for your reviews. It has made me more sure of my decision.
I'm scheduled for my breast... more
Well, what can I say? There's obviously a reason why I'm on this website (Sooo glad I found this site!), and that's because of my boobs. Boobs is like an understatement haha. I'm 18, 5'8, 153 lbs and a 32H. Yikes!
It seems weird to be writing how much I want this procedure, but I really do. I'm tired of the constant neck aches and how my back hurts by the end of the day, or the red grooves... more
I have always had very large breasts from a young age. It's hereditary. I wanted to wait until I had my children to get a reduction. I had years of neck and back pain which was the biggest reason for getting the procedure. I was always so uncomfortable, not to mention my appearance with way larger breasts in proportion to the rest of my body. I really struggled with finally deciding to... more

I had constant skin irritation under the folds of my breast as well as grooves in my shoulders causing me shoulder pain. I had breast reduction surgery 08/11/14 and boy am I glad I did it. I waited three years to finally have the surgery. I wait this... 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. I was pretty much a 32c through my twenties to forties. Petite frame good figure, beautiful breasts... more
I've wanted to do this for a very long time (common theme with this procedure) but just recently received approval from insurance (Kaiser). I'm trying to be realistic about my expectations but I don't want smaller versions of what they look like now and that is my biggest fear. I've found a PS, Dr. Rajiv Iyer, that I'm very happy with (Orange County). He's been great answering all my... more

After years of back pain and intended shoulders I made the serious decision to move forward with this surgery. My insurance initial gave me the step of seeing a specialist and a physical therapy was recommended but after seeing my surgeon he said I was a clear case of a reduction. I was a 34 F (so I thought), 140 and 5'2. A month after meeting my PS it was time to rock and roll. I was beyond... more
I'm 20 years old and in college. I am currently a size 34G and I've been waiting for this surgery practically since I was 12! I think in 3rd grade I already had noticeable breasts.
