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. If the areola has been stretched due to the size of the breast, it may also be reduced. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. LEARN MORE ›

Hello, my name is Vanessa, I'm 31 years old and I'm having my long awaited breast reduction in 2 days. I'm starting to panic a bit, of course, so I decided to start a journal here to try to calm me down. I have found a lot of comfort, courage and tips from the reviews in here that it encouraged...

Since I was a teenager I have had large sized boobs to which everyone believes to be 'proportionate to my body size'. I am a tall woman so my weight seems evenly dispersed, but my chest is way too large. Because of its size (44 JJ UK) my boobs sag a lot, and this sagging causes chest pains when... READ MORE

I have been contemplating a BR for many years, but don't like pain, so couldn't make the decision to have the surgery. After dealing with health issues with my hubby (5 surgeries in a little over a year), I figured if he could do it, so could I. I proceeded to do some research and had a... READ MORE

Part of me can't believe I'm doing it. A BIG part of me can't believe I'm writing about it. LOL And then there's the part that can't believe I waited so long for this. I went from no boobs to HUGE boobs in high school (Sophomore year to be exact). I feel like sometimes I define myself by... READ MORE

Well here goes. I am a mum of one, 27 years old and have finally had my breast reduction after 5 years of trying. Since the tender age of 11 I have always been big busted. I tried so long to get this procedure on the NHS, then I fell pregant two years ago so was out on hold for obvious reasons... READ MORE

Other then that it was a pretty easy process minus waiting the 6 weeks to hear if I was approved. I have the surgery in 2 weeks from today. I... READ MORE

Now that I'm under the one-month mark until surgery, I thought I'd stop being a lurker on RS and make my own post! Like so many women here, I have also struggled with a large (okay, huge) chest size, specifically in relation to my small frame. I have always been so, so self conscious of my body... READ MORE

I have been following a lot of wonderful ladies and their journey to get their reductions. I figured it is time to share my story as well. This will probably be long, so if you finish reading to the end, thank you in advance. ;) I was in the 5th grade when my mom said we are going to have to... READ MORE

I am 52 years old, 5 ft1.5. 32h bra and around 10 stone (needing to lose a few pounds! ). I have wanted a breast reduction forever but never felt ordinary people like me got this done! After reading through this website it made me realise this was not the case. I had saved the money as self... READ MORE

I am considering this BR. I would like to reduce the pain that is all over my body. I would like to run instead of walk. I would like find a bra that will fit from Victoria secrets or Kohls not a specialty store. I want cloths that are the right size. I believe Dr. Pollock will make it happen.... READ MORE

Today is the day.! I am only hours away from going to sign in and have the reduction. Insurance has yet to confirm payment, I have to sign a waiver being held reliable. Anyone else? What were the outcome ? I am not going to even try to play tough, I am scared. I have slept only 2 hours and in... READ MORE

Well after many years of considering a breast reduction I finally did it. I have gone from a 12 E to it looks like a 12 C maybe full B. I had always been a D cup and although they were a hassle I can never say they were a huge issue. The issue was after to stopped breast feeding my now 12 year... READ MORE

I 've thought about a BR at different times over the years but never checked it out. WHY??? I developed very early, like 4th or 5th grade. In Jr High some of the boys nicknamed me, Jungle Jugs. I'm heavier now than I want or should be, but even at a normal body weight, I'm still a 36DDD. ... READ MORE

I am less than away from my surgery date! It's set for 8:30AM on May 10th. ::Aaagghhhhhhhh!!:: I am mostly anxious about whether or not this will actually help my back, as my boobs aren't terribly huge to begin with-- But they have been at least a D since the 6th grade and I have tried...
