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 ›

Has anyone had surgery in Turkey? Specifically with Clinic Centre / Dr Caghan Baytekin / Dr Guray Ye?iladal? ? Im wanting a breast reduction. The prices are great but not many reviews on the surgeons or the clinic. Alternatively, im looking at Prague or Belgium. Any opinions gratefully... READ MORE

Since I found this site a week ago I've been glued to my computer screen, I'm sure many of you can relate to that! :) I'll skip all the long details but as many others, mine developed suddenly and quite some time after my school friends, as I remember being jealous of their tiny bras when I had...

I have come to rely on Realself so much to help me come to a decision on breast reduction that now that I've decided to do it, thought I should post my own experience. I am 43 years old, 5'4", 135 lbs, with a breast size of 30F. After a lot of research, I decided on Dr. Carolyn Chang. I had... READ MORE

First, I want to apologize for not doing this review sooner. After my surgery I was left with a lot of pain and emotional issues. This Dr. works at Pierini esthetics along with a Venezuelan Dr. (Alberto Pierini the clinic 's owner). She did a breast reduction and recommended me to have implants,... READ MORE

This will be my second time trying to have a breasts reduction surgery. Last year around this time I was scheduled to have the surgery but for reasons beyond my control it had to be cancelled twice. After the second cancellation I lost my insurance and gave up on pursuing the surgery. A year... READ MORE

Large painful breasts all my life! I was able to put up with them for a long time, but I gave up smoking 2 years ago and my boobs just went crazy. I put on a few kilos (about 7 )but my breasts just got disproportionately larger and more and more painful. I was in so much pain all the time and... READ MORE

I have always had large breasts. Rashes under my breasts, shoulder indentations, lots of neck and head pain, and currently take 3-5 muscle relaxers a day to feel...okay. I tried therapy for a month. When I went in the first time, they said the top rib had been pulled out of place from tension..... 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 had my kids very early. Always had nice perky C boobs, after having them they went up and down and finally settled on a 36DD. While they aren't huge, its enough to be annoying and I'd like to return to my pre-baby figure. I work out a ton, boobs are always spilling out and I'm self... 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

So Monday July 11th I had a consultation with Dr. Keith Blechman (in my network) here in NYC to discuss whether I was a good candidate for a medically necessary breast reduction. After a physical examination of my breasts, he did in fact think I wouldn't have any problem with insurance approving... READ MORE

At 29, i haven't been to a dance, prom, party nor formal place because of these monsters on a... READ MORE

I have thought about this for decades (I am 60) but I can't deny that I am nervous. I have had other 'consultations' over the years but this time I am almost there ... I have a date and I am counting down. My fear of bleeding to death (!) doesn't seem likely ... I have watched several videos ... 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

The process of waiting is a stressful one. After years of back pain and overly large breast I went to the Dr in Feb for a breast check up for pain. She referred me to a breast specialist. From there I saw a surgeon. BCBS approved me about 2 weeks ago. Date is set for July 8th. I'm super... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I've finally had my breast reduction! I've been wanting this since Ihad my first child at age 19. My surgeon was Dr Phil Richardson from Fortitude Valley, Qld. He is amazing! And all the staff who work alongside him, as well as the Pacific Day Surgery team, are wonderful too. The... READ MORE

Hi ladies I have been reading this site for a month now and have gathered a lot of helpful information. I decided I needed a breast reduction years ago but after seeing my GP and being told I just needed to loose weight I became discouraged. I did the weight lose journey and after dropping...

I decided to have a breast reduction due to back, neck, and my left breast being much larger than my right breast. The day of the surgery I had to be there at 6:30am. Two people were allowed to come back to the room with me. My nurse came came in to take my vital signs, give me a gown to change... READ MORE
