Girl, it's hard enough dealing with a D cup. But G? Goodness..who gives a damn about a little scar? With breasts that large you could develop very significant back problems, particularly as you get older. Don't worry about what guys think; any man who has a problem with you doing what's necessary for your own health and well-being is not someone you'd want to be with in the first place.

i know every guy is going to say to not have it

Correction...Not every guy is so gaga for boobs that they prefer them over a healthy, active partner. The back pain you experience today may end up restricting you in many ways down the road. An old friend was literally crippled by back and shoulder pain, and she missed out on a lot of living before getting reduced at 28. Now she runs races, rock-climbs, and attracts a better class of not just interested in getting their hands on the goods.

For the record: Boobies of any size are two of my favorite things.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to feel comfortable.

Plenty of guys won't care what size your boobs are. The only important thing is you have them.

If having large breast leads to health problems, then I would say that surgery should be an option. I guess its up to the woman and how she feels about the matter. It would make no difference to me if a woman chose to have breast reduction surgery.

Both my ex's where large breasted. One was DD and one was an F/G. Like you they were very busty at an early age. Both had looked into the the surgery and decided that if and when it became a problem to look at it again. My last ex decided that when she got the point she wanted to do something it would be a lift with a slight reduction. I honestly think most women want that perky look and a large cup. Natural breasts tend to sag as you get older and I think that is more of a psychological reason than a physical one. Sometimes the information you get from a surgeon is not truly accurate. The weight you carry from your breasts is not really all that significant unless you plan to go from a G to a C cup and then even at best your around 5-7 pounds and thats all. I wont disagree that a G cup can be tough to work with in the area of clothes, bra's and can be a pain in the back. But large breasts do not always equate to back problems. A lot of people develop upper back/neck problems and well even us men who have no breasts to blame get serious problems in that same area. So all in all, I think if it was me (and this is based on all the conversations I had with my ex' I would wait until you are through with the possibility of children, get to a point that its not a cosmetic issue and one where you truly feel the risk outweighs the benefits. You may just op for a lift and tuck with a small reduction later in life. Again I have known ladies who love having large breasts. Some have spent a whole lot of money trying to get large breasts. Other who are natural think it was a wonderful thing to be so gifted. Its all a personal choice but one that once you decide to do it, you can't go back. Each operation carries risks and some women identify with being busty while other are ashamed of the attention they create.

I will admit I am biased since I love big breasts, but at the same time I understand they can be a pain. I was always happy to buy the best bra's you could get that gave the most support and were very comfortable. I think both the women in my life really loved the fact I was very supportive (pun!). No really, really good bra's are not cheap, but can make a world of difference in the support you get and that can help a whole lot on your back.

I did date a lady who was an E cup (DD) and had them reduced to a full C cup. She feels it was an OK thing to do, but not sure she would do it again. The scars never really went away and she lost some sensation in the nipple and the whole breast. She is a slightly larger lady and the C cups do make her look small on top. She feels that maybe she should have just gone down one size, but then points out would it really be worth all the pain and expense for just one cup size difference? Point is, I can tell she trys to be happy with what she chose but I think still has some regrets. She did lose the ability to suck her own nipples and she really did enjoy that.

Well good luck, make an informed decision and talk to other women who are a G cup and have had it done. I think you will find you probably will want to wait until it really becomes an issue at a much later age. Both my ex's are now 45 and 47 and neither has had anything done and are still happy so far...

Damn,,G?? Im a DD and have a hard enough time! Trust me on this,,the older you get the worse its going to get for you physically lugging those babies around. I was always active playing co-ed softball and eventually had to quit due to my boobs just plain hurting. Even layering up on some good underwire sports bras still didnt help.

What if you get a sit-down job where you are at a desk for 8 hours? Ohhhhhh man i dont eeeeeeeven wanna think about that with having G boobies!!

For sure,,,,get it done!

Holy crap, only 19 and have a G cup already? WOW, and with prolly 2 more years or more of growing to go who knows where they will stop. But at any rate OP, if a guy would be turned off by any scarring then he is definitely NOT the right one for you. Any man that truly care about and for you will not give it a second thought. Granted there might be some out there that want that perfect, unscarred, flawless body that does not mean by all means that ALL of us men are like that. Do what you have to do to help yourself and not really worry too much about it. Besides, if you have a good surgeon he might be able to do it and make the scars barely noticeable.

My girl wants to loose a few lbs of her breasts as she feels they are too big, i know she is very concious of her breats and if she had the money for the op im sure she would have them reduced, and i would go along with her all the way, as it would be to help her confidence immencly. so my advice would be you go for it . . . .

would i be turned off my scarring No Way but im sure in time it wopuld dissapear as it would have been for the best. and i very much doubt there would not be much scarring any way ? thats if the op is done by a professional

Good luck in what ever you decide to do

My concern at your age wouldn't be what men would think; it'd be function. Can you still breast feed after breast reduction surgery? That might not mean much to you at this point in your life but it might be important to you later.

My daughter had a reduction; and she, like the other ladies who have posted here, said it was one of the best things she has ever done. However, you need to weigh the pros and cons of timing the surgery. You will almost certainly not be able to breast feed after the surgery. I know my daughter was not able to breast feed her second child because of it. Breast feeding has numerous physical and psychological benefits for mother and child, that simply can't be attained any other way; so be very conscious of this before you decide on when to have the surgery.

I have never met a woman who has had the surgery; and wasn't very happy with the decesion, and the results. As far as what anyone else thinks, if they are anything but supportive, they are someone you don't want to associate with anyway.

Every woman I know who has had this done has never regreted it for a moment! If I had the money I would do it in a heartbeat! Just remember though with any surgery there are risks - talk to your DR about those too! The pain of plastic surgery is not pleasant either - be prepared to take the time to recover as your DR wants you too! You will need it!

Oh my if a bunch of guys on here said No! Don't reduce them we love big boobs would you decide not to have the surgery?
They are your breasts and you are the one who very obviously has to live with or without them.

What guys think is less important than your well-being.

Have you seen a good physical therapist? If not, see one. They can help you with proper exercises and postural improvement to minimize your back problems. They should also be able to refer you to someone who can fit you with a really good bra.

I've known a number of women over the years who have benefited from breast reduction surgery. If other options fail or you are convinced this is the best way to go, make sure you research it thoroughly before any surgery. Good luck.

Well tiggertoes...I live in Canada and here you get the surgery for free if you have medical issues (back pain, chest pain, shoulder pain). All I had to do was talk to my family doctor and I had the surgery a few months later. I also was a bit overweight but because of my breast size, I didn't need to lose any weight before the surgery.

My wife was spilling out of HH cup bra and now has nerve damage in her hands and arms cause she couldn't get the surgery when she wanted when she was just a DD. the doctors told her to lose weight, so she lost 50 lbs and went up 2 cup sizes. The doctor finally gave her the surgery when she couldn't open and close her hands. She feels ways better now like a huge weight has been lifted off her shoulders. sorry for the pun but it's the truth. Just speak to the surgon and ask him what could happen if you gain weight.

Actually There are guys who say go for it and get a reduction. I mean if it's causing health problems any mature guy should be able to look past scars, what happens if his gf needs to get the knife to deliver...smaller breasts can be very sexy.
And anything that keeps you living healthy longer is worth it...
I wouldnt have a problem seeing a scar, theres a story behind every scar, the hard question would be reduction or increase when u see the scar...:) but really when it goes there it doesnt matter....

Git 'er done. Not everyone on earth is enamored of huge breasts. About a C cup is the largest I would be interested in, I prefer 'em on the small side. It's just like everything else, though; it's impolite to say anything negetive, so people will always say whatever you look like is fine. But you'll be much happier with average sized boobs than from carrying the current weight around (unless you're a porn actress that stars in the huge boob series). Just be very careful picking out a plastic surgeon so you get a nice job done. As crazy as it sounds, try to get referrals about doctors from women who have had it done and are thrilled with the results; you'll have to live with these the rest of your life.

speaking to just what will the guys think part of it. I think the majority of guys would be totaly fine with you getting it done, becuse whats the point of haveing great breast if you cant go show them off becuse they hurt your back?

and over all I agree with everyone else who gives a rats ass what they think.

and to be honest im totaly shocked that some crazy hasnt asked for before and after pics yet lol

I was in the army with a girl your size. During push-ups the drill instructor said go down untill your chest touches the floor. I yelled out She's Cheating!! She had a hardtime,her back hurt and running was a nightmare. We ended up in Germany together and she had them reduced. She said it was such a great relieve she wished she had done it earlier. Oh she messed up my boots right before an inspection for that smart azz remark I made! a smart guy would think now why would anyone want to be in pain?
