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 ›

Well the time has finally come! This Wednesday I am scheduled to have my breast reduction surgery and I'm nervous and anxious but also excited. I've always had large breasts and I've suffered from serious back, neck, and shoulder pain for years, as well as terrible headaches, which after... READ MORE

One week to go! I have been on this site for over a year and it's finally my turn! I have read, laughed, and commented and just love all your stories!! I started looking at doctors last year and just was so unsure if I wanted to do this (I am afraid of looking off without my chest) and did not... READ MORE

I have my first appointment set for August 30th, 2016. I went for physical therapy most of May. I havr not had my reduction quite yet but still wanna record my journey with you guys.

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

Okay I know you've all heard this story before - been a D cup since middle school and rocked the E/F's since end of high school. Lost weight, didn't get any smaller. Gained weights, surprisingly didn't change much either! Now I sit at 5'6", ~170# (high end of my weight usually) and a 34E give or... READ MORE

I had my tummy tuck exactly 1 year ago and now I had my breast reduced. I was extremely excited about my tummy tuck but after 5 weeks I popped some internal stitches and have suffered every since. My breast however is quit different. I was a 36DD and only wanted a lift but my insurance would... READ MORE

Hello, I am in total disbelief that my surgery is in 4 days! I am 36 years old and I've been dreaming of a reduction for at least 10 years! I have spent a lot of time just talking about it, rather than working up the courage to actually do it. I am currently a 44H and I am hoping to eventually... READ MORE

So, after being apart of this community for 2 years and choosing my Dr, after looking at countless stories and reviews, I finally have the money to move forward. I am a 23 year old Black female in the United States, and I'm getting a breast reduction. I have 36DD (prolly bigger, since they're... READ MORE

I want to feel better and not have so much pain any more. I have planned on getting a reduction for years now ,but always scare myself out of it. Well I just had my last child a year ago ,and I have constant back pain. Yes I want to feel beautiful but I want the pain to be relief. My health is... READ MORE

I went to see Dr. Dash today and was very pleased. She took time to explain the anchor procedure, how much time would be needed for the surgery, itself 3 hours, and how she doesnt use drains, and why she doesn't. She took measurements and photos. She remarked I have very heavy breast(I know,... READ MORE

One of the best things I've done for myself. I can breathe, and my neck and back pain are so much less. And even though I didn't get this surgery for the aesthetics, I was so pleased during my reveal at my doctor's office today. I don't think they were this pretty when I was 15! I can see why...

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

My story is similar to many others' I have read here. I was a C cup in 7th grade, and I remember forgetting to put on a bra one morning and crying when I got home from school, because I had felt so gross all day. By the time I was 15, I was DDD, and I knew that I was going to get a reduction. It... READ MORE

Hi everyone. Long time lurker here. Ok so my story is the same as everyone's regarding having huge breasts since very young etc etc. The only difference being that 15 years ago I had liposuction only on my breasts and it removed 900mls in total and took me from a H to a E. At the time I was in... READ MORE

Hi, my God Sister and I are seeking a mommy makeover. The only difference is she wants everything and the BBL. I in turn want a breast lift and whatever else that comes with the mommy make over. I think I have enough butt but it does need some tightness to it. My photo is the result of a happy... READ MORE

Finally taking the plunge and getting a breast reduction. Surgery will be July 5th, Co firmed this morning! I remember playing outside when I was a kid, maybe 8 or so, and overhearing my aunt say to my mom "looks like she might need to start wearing a bra soon". I also remember sitting in the... READ MORE

I know I only had my surgery one week ago; but I can't quit looking at these awful things on my chest. I look like Frankentits. Please tell me it gets better, this horrendous tightness goes away (feel like you could bounce a quarter off of me), the nipples are gross, all of it !! ???????????????? 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

Where do I begin.... I've longed for a breast reduction since the age of 18 but I've always had breast issues as a kid. I started wearing training bras in the 3rd grade and the tender age of 9. As the years passed, I grew taller, wider and so did the "girls". By the time I reached middle school,... READ MORE
