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 have severe back, shoulder and neck pain from overly large breasts. I've had this problem since puberty. I've also had issues finding bras that fit me well since my breasts are out of proportion and one is a couple cup sizes larger than the other. I am pretty sure my skeleton has permanent... READ MORE

I have been lurking on this site for many months now. I felt I should write something as the many woman that have written made this journey way easier to understand what to expect. I hope this will help someone too. My journey has only just begun and I will try and update as it goes along. ... 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

I have all the same "big boob woes" as everyone else on here so I'm going to spare you my sob story to save time and because my 18 month old will wake up from his nap soon. Here are my measurements and a little details: I am 5'4, 135 lbs, and I squeeze into a 30G/32F bra and even go bigger... READ MORE

I have been debating a breast reduction for more than a decade. As the years progressed, the dream evolved to a reduction and a tummy tuck. It seemed reasonable that if I was going to have surgery, I wanted to have my post pregnancy belly fixed as well. To be honest, I was terrified. I know... READ MORE

I'm getting my breast reduction done tomorrow and I'm a tad bit nervous. It's nerves mixed with excitement. I can't wait to see my new breasts because I've been carrying around this dead weight for so long it has become such a burden. I'm a little nervous about the pain though. I've had the... READ MORE

I got approved for my Breast Reduction Last month and Im so excited and scared at the same time! Im 5'5 177lbs and I cant wait to lift this weight off my chest! I only had to appeal twice and the second time I did it over the phone and ask for my surgeons office to resend the pictures after that... READ MORE

Was afraid to so afraid to do this for ao long then it got to the point that if I didn't I would have to go on disability and give up normal life for a life of pain and agony. I am 4 days post-op and so glad I did it. I had Dr Roman Skoracki from OSU plastic surgeons and he is amazing! A true... READ MORE

I was tired of the back and neck pain. My friends all thought I was crazy and didn't think I was that big. The dr. Said I hid them well. I got approved by insurance the first try so it went faster than I thought. I am two weeks post op and feel great. No complications. I am so happy I did it... READ MORE

Hello Real Selfers! You have helped me so very much that I wanted to share my experience and I have a lot to share. I hope it is not too much. I had my first cosmetic procedure in my 20's. Although I think the decision to have cosmetic surgery is personal and private, I am not ashamed of it.... READ MORE

I got approved for a breast reduction today through Tricare at the Hospital on post. I was so nervous about this but he seems great. It's awhile away and in December, right before Christmas which bothers me but I took the date. I keep thinking I want to loose 10-15 pounds, I wonder if I do will... READ MORE

I have finally been approved for a reduction of my? size 38G breast! ?YAAY!! I am so emotional about this right now. I'm a so excited and grateful that this door has been opened for me.

My chest has always been large, and by the time I saw Dr. Brown (at 21 years old) I was a GG cup. My chest looked a little ridiculous with my frame (5'5", 160lbs), and it was causing all the classic shoulder/neck/back/posture issues, not to mention a slew of mental/self-esteem issues as well....

I am still 50/50 on whether i want this done, and it would only be a small reduction, maybe a quarter or so. I do like them ( aesthetically and such ) but they've been more or less this size since i was 13 - 14 and they're just such a pain in the ass 90% of the time, whether clothes shopping or...
