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 ›

Just scheduled my surgery today. Will be April 21st. I am 39 yrs old, 165lb, 5'3", approx. a 36/38H according to an online bra calculator, but wear a 38DDD, squishing them in for modesty reasons (I'm extremely self-conscious about them). Excruciating back pain for years now, and it has become... READ MORE

So many reasons to get this done for myself. I need it so badly. Been waiting a week mow for my GYN to call me with a referral to a surgeon. I already have physically therapy recorded for neck pain causing migraines. In pain every day and clothes shopping is a JOKE. Comment if you have advice... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I can relate to a lot of the stories here and have been following (stalking if you will lol) for a few months. I have been large chested forever. I went from nothing to a B/C cup the summer between 2nd/3rd grade. Yep, that's around 8 years old. By the time I was in 7th grade, I was... READ MORE

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

You all know..when we have breasts that have fallen and point south its no longer a pretty site !! Its time for a reduction and lift, After two children my breasts took a life of their own. Each year keeps getting worse. You know, shirts can't fit or button. Bras are impossible, I"m constantly... READ MORE

Long story short. At the age off 11 was when it all started. I was teased and called names til the day I graduated high school . As and adukt, if they didn't remember my name or face "you know the one with the big boobs." I've dealt with them for 40 years, back and forth weight loss/gain. No... READ MORE

It's time! I can't take the pain/discomfort any longer. I've entertained the idea of a breast reduction for twenty years. I put it off, making hopeful excuses that they would go away if I lost weight, or I should wait until after I have children, or insurance probably won't pay because I'm... READ MORE

I have always had large breasts - and always wanted to have them reduced - even back in my 20's when I was only a DD. No matter what weight I was - down to 115 and up to 140, I always was big. The only change would be the size of my back - I'd go down to a 32 - which made it even more difficult... READ MORE

Hi ladies, I have been on here reading everyone's reviews for months now and been wanting a reduction for 30 years. I have had big boobs from the age of 14, I am 5' 3" and always been very petite (I am carrying an extra stone at the moment, too much cake and not enough exercise plus menopause!)... READ MORE

Hi, I've been a member of this group for several months reading what you all have to say, but this is my first time posting anything. I have had to wear a bra since I was 7 years old. I was a DD when I graduated highschool. I was a tiny person then, wore a size 3 and was barely 5 ft. tall. Add a... READ MORE

I did it. What did I wait for? I've wanted one for 25 years, and finally did Breast Reduction, after so much back pain. I'm 47 years old, 5 feet tall, weigh 112, and was a 36 DDD. I am now a B/C, not really sure yet. They are lovely! First two days post op were good, but day three I had a... READ MORE

I've wanted a BR for years for the standard reasons - back pain, etc, etc. I have a couple of aunts who have had them and saw a surgeon a couple of years ago: I didn't like him so didn't pursue it further. I have particular issues with upper back/neck pain and nerve compression in my right... 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 on this Blog for a while now. Every since I had my consultation. (June 20) I finally got my approval about 2 wks ago and now I'm excited and nervous. Im 52 and i'm so ready. It's time for me to be comfortable. I'm going on vacation on Aug 4th to Greece and when I return it will be... 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

I am a 26 year old female beginning my process of seeking a much needed breast reduction. My breast are huge and the pain it cause I can no longer endure. So far I have had my first consultation, been approved with a second opinion and have done physical therapy to see if that would help...Wrong... READ 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...

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

My BR surgery is in just one week, so I thought that I should get on here and see about chronicling it. I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that it is happening, and until a couple of days ago I was still unsure about having it done. What changed my mind was a five day stretch where...
