Breast Reduction Insights

Posted by Dr Jamie Burt on 15 November 2015

Over the past twelve months we have been asking women what it is like to want a breast reduction. What are their concerns, issues and questions. We are just about to hit 50 responses to this survey. The responses are compelling, sad and inspiring. If you have a issue with your breasts why not take our survey today and see what other women are saying in this special report.

Some quotes that moved us:

"Since I was young I have always had large breasts and was often teased at school. Even when having children I was told breastfeeding would help reduce my size this was not the case. This has made me self conscious for many years. I often round my shoulders and cross my arms over my chest when standing."

"This one is on my mind lately. After carrying my burden of larger than average boobs around for 37 years, having 2 children and breastfeeding for 3 years my boobs are saggy and I can't look at them and they are awful. My nanas 2 x sisters passed from breast cancer before my time, and I'm aware that these things skip a generation - which means I just might be next."

"Embarrassed, self concious as people always stare at them and even make comments about their sizes."

"Ever since developing breast at age 11. I have always felt at war with my breast from the moment they appeared I wanted them gone. My breast weigh me down not only physically but emotionally too."

"I feel as if a reduction would give me that "weight lifted off my shoulders" feeling. i feel scared about the operation side of it but I am still just in the research phase of my Journey."

If you are thinking of a breast reduction why not take our survey or visit our FAQs for more information.
