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 went to see Dr. Bajaj in September on 2015 and two months later had a breast reduction. I have never felt more happy and beautiful then I do today. She made me so comfortable and even prompted me to have more questions for her when I came back. I will always recommend her to anybody. I look... READ MORE

Like many of you girls on this wonderful forum, I've always been "the girl with the huge boobs." I'm relatively tall (5'7"), with a long torso, so it's been a little easier for me to hide them than some girls, but since about fourth grade, I've been self conscious of and teased about my breasts,...

I have read a few stories so far and I am so happy I did! I saw my surgeon for my pre op appointment today. I found out that my breasts are too large for just a lollipop but she will do an anchor with a lollipop nipple procedure. ( I'm sure I'm getting phrasing confused but she drew what she was...

I'm a mother of 3 daughters, had large breasts since I developed them in middle school, just kept getting bigger with each pregnancy until I became a 38 H. I'm 5'3 200lbs. I was always an hour glass until I hit 37 and went back to school. I gained 60 lbs and its been a struggle. I decided it was... READ MORE

I was in 5th grade and was wearing a tube top during the summer and realized everybody was staring at my chest when I realized I was bigger busted than anyone else I knew in my school. It made me uncomfortable as I got involved in sports and had to wear expensive compression bras to stabilize... READ MORE

I can't begin to thank all you wonderful ladies for writing reviews and relating your stories on realself, it's been so good to know I'm not alone in the journey to smaller, more appropriately sized breasts! Similar to many of you, I developed early, at 11 I outgrew my training bra by leaps... READ MORE

After having problems with my back, neck and shoulders for many years, including a year where I could not hardly walk because of severe sciatica, I have decided to finally have a much needed breast reduction. I have lost 80 pounds and kept it off 11 years but the size of my breast did not... READ MORE

Hello! So happy to have found this place! And I'd just like to apologize in advance for my English, it's not my native language but I hope you'll understand me, haha. I'm an 18 year old, 180 cm (5'11") girl and have been considering a breast reduction for about 1-2 years now. It was this... READ MORE

I'm a 24 year old who has had issues from large breasts. Since I was 13, I've had a narrow rib cage and large breasts. At 12, I was a B going on C, and that's the last time that I liked them. At 14, I was already pouring out of my DD from Victoria's Secret. The rapid growth created many stretch... READ MORE

I've been wanting to have a breast reduction since I was a junior in high school. I can't ever remember being anything less than a D cup. I've always been associated with my chest, from high school to today at work. I am the butt of jokes, all in fun but still. I know some of the attention from... READ MORE

5'2 110lbs with 32 D. Breast reduction with lift. Dr. Van Ye is very talented in all he does. At the same time I had an arm lift and liposuction on my flanks. I was extremely happy with all the work I had done. Dr Van Ye did tell me I would have scarring on my arms. I explained I had looked at... READ MORE

It’s about time. Hi Real Self. I am 53 years old. I don’t know what I would do without Real Self. I was a candidate for breast reduction, surgery date on 12/05/13. I have read many stories on this site for years, and inspired by them. I especially enjoyed the review by the Hawkeye... READ MORE

Now's the time, and the serious journey has begun! I have been desperately in need of a breast reduction for the past 10 years. I had a hysterectomy done in 2005, and ever since then, my breasts have grown and grown. I went from a C to a DDD in that time. My back and shoulders are in constant... READ MORE

I actually had my surgery yesterday, but I'm going to start from the beginning, now that I've decided to post my experience! I've had large breasts ever since I can remember. I started hunching my shoulders in 4th grade b/c I had breasts way before any of my friends and I wanted to hide them. I... READ MORE

Hi! I'm as 45-year old mother of two who doesn't remember a time when my chest wasn't large. I feel like I went from 0 to DD all at once in middle school and finally up to a G/H after my second child was born. Now that I have ruts in my shoulders and walk slightly hunched over (because if I... READ MORE

Hey Ladies! I have been stalking this site for months and am finally ready to write my own review. The procedure that I'm interested in is the Ultimate Breast Lift with Dr. Horndeski. If you've done any research on breast reductions & have been on this site long enough, you've heard of him.... READ MORE

First of all let me say I am 5'7" & 270 Lbs, so I am considered obese. So about 5 years ago I got a divorce, had a hysterectomy & quit smoking all within about six months of each other. Since then I have put on about 75 pounds. Around May I started serious treatment for hormone replacement... READ MORE

Just wanted to say hi I have been researching for breast reduction on real self for quite sometime now. I am booked for my final consultation with dr Dan Rowe not Brisbane QLD. He was lovely to talk with & was very detailed & realistic in what he could do for me in terms of amount of removal.... READ MORE

I'm FINALLY getting surgery done on Nov 11 after years of dreaming about it. I wear a 30H although none really fit perfectly so they're probably bigger than that. I tried to get the surgery done in my country, Panama, a few years ago but insurance said they would not cover it. Next month I'll... READ MORE

Hi all, I'm sure those of you interested in BR already know aaall about The Struggle. I'm also sure those of you who don't would have already read all about it. But I have my own tidbits to add to all the pre-op recollections and I hope it can be as reassuring and insightful as the other... READ MORE
