Having macromastia is a nightmare

I hate it. My breasts are way too big heavy and sensitive. I wish i could get a reduction
elizabreast · 22-25, FVIP
I really wish people (especially men) would get it through their heads that having macromastia/gigantomastia is NOT “just having big boobs.”

Gigantomastia/macromastia is an abnormal condition causing breasts to grow abnormally large. Our breasts frequently HURT (painfully sensitive, NOT pleasurable sensitive), their heaviness can cause SEVERE back and neck pain as well. Often times we can’t get reductions for various reasons. One, our breasts have to stop growing first. Two, surgery is expensive and many insurances will not pay for the procedure as they consider it “cosmetic.”

But most of all, I am SICK AND TIRED of being objectified by primarily men! We ARE NOT “living the dreams” of anybody. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. We are constantly fetishized and stared at and men assume we are a sexual dream and state their unwanted opinions to us all the time. Keep your thoughts to yourselves.

@elizabreast It's a sisterhood. It's nonvoluntary, but an amazing sisterhood. 💛

@elizabreast If it sucks that bad then why not just get an only fans page for like 30 minutes and make the 10k needed for a reduction.
It would literally take you 1/2 hour to raise the money .

I have so many questions, are you petite, average, or above average size upper frame I'm at a 35-inch band but wear a band of 36, anything below 34 and your frame is going to need a lot of body building. You say you wish you could get a reduction, well, I wish I can too but not yet. work out the back, shoulder and arm muscles. If possible, preferably in a swimming pool so your breasts are more buoyant. I'm not sure why you can't get a reduction, cost perhaps since you only wish for one and can't the advice, I give is all you can do. Not knowing your bra/cup size you might need to look into a support corset, they are very helpful, talk to your breast specialist or Dr about a referral to acquire one.
@AllycatAD I think part of the problem is the rate of growth; just like clothes for kids, spending a bunch of $ on clothes which fit for only few to several months is pretty income-intensive.
AllycatAD · 26-30, F
@SomeMichGuy true, that's another factor. Very much a part of my life.

I hear that can cause back pain aswell. I'm sure you're living the dream of many women but your opinion matters more.
My daughter had it done and her life has changed so much. No more pain and she loves her new size

One thing this poster didn't mention is if her Dr. gave a go ahead with the procedure. a reduction isn't a cure but in reality, a "treatment." A cure would be bi lateral mastectomy, how the body will react to that shock is even unknown. a reduction would be a spendy " Treatment " since insurance companies won't cover. so trying to fund it one thing, the uncertancey of the future after is another.

Is it a cost thing? Insurance won't cover it? Have you talked to your doctor about this being a medically necessary thing because of the damage it's doing to your back?
AllycatAD · 26-30, F
@DunningKruger average cost starts at around five thousand dollars in the USA, since such procedure is titled as elective as far as I know most insurance won't cover it.

@AllycatAD just another example of our AMAZING Healthcare System....🤬

A friend of mine did so, it was a very good reduction, she felt relief from pain, and from too much of the wrong kind of attention. Later,She admitted that she slightly missed the attention. Andit is not like she made herself Tiny, still voluptuous. But it made bra shopping. Much easier

Too "sensitive"? What's wrong with sensitive breasts please?
helenS · 36-40, F
@likesnatural Oh yes I do! 🤪

My wife had a friend with that problem. After her surgery, there was no more back and shoulder pain. She was much happier and wished she had done it years before. Find a way to afford it.
helenS · 36-40, F
@likesnatural Breast reduction surgery?? Really 😐
AthrillatheHunt · 51-55, M
Wish you could get a reduction ? Stop “wishing” and set up an onlyfans page for ONE HOUR. You’ll raise more than enough cash .
Stop wishing .
This is something you need to save for. It can be a game changer for people with this condition. I wish you the best
I'm assuming the cost is the main deterring factor or is it something else?
Amanda422 · 36-40, F
@LookingForSomethingNew i can't afford it and have no insurance
@Amanda422 Man, that sucks. I'm sorry to hear that. I know the reality of the condition is a damn challenge to work through.

You should make it a priority for your health to get a reduction. Quality of life would be so much better. 🤗🙏🤗

As somebody who has a friend with this problem, I can relate. I guess the money is the problem?
Richard65 · M
Are you in America? Can I ask how much a reduction procedure would cost?
