When it comes to what people are seeking at the plastic surgeon’s office, a quiet revolution is underway—one where comfort takes precedence. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the demand for cosmetic breast reductions soared by an impressive 54 percent from 2019 to 2022 and its popularity is not slowing down. Perhaps a product of a post-pandemic world where aesthetic priorities have shifted or a signal towards a more natural approach to enhancement, you can’t deny reductions are trending. Among those who have undergone a breast redux are these Hollywood stars who’ve been open about how freeing and transformative this procedure can be.

Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah found herself grappling with discomfort and self-consciousness from having a larger chest. She told People, “I was a 36DD in high school. I was also a big girl…I was the biggest girl in my class.” Opting for a breast reduction in 2003 to alleviate shoulder and back pain, the Girls Trip star initially harbored reservations. “I didn’t want to get it. But I had lost 25 pounds, and my breasts didn’t go anywhere! I was still carrying that load. I didn’t quite want them to be this small.”

Amber Rose

Rose shared excitement on Instagram in 2018 before her surgery. “My Breast Reduction surgery is tmrw… I’m really scared and really excited at the same time.” Now a 36DDD, Rose told People, “it’s like a dream come true” to wear spaghetti-strapped tank tops. “Now when I’m running out the door, I don’t have to search for the right bra to fit within the shirt or to match the color of the shirt,” she said. “I can just throw it on and I’m like, ‘This is amazing!’ I’ve been missing this my whole life.”

Stassi Schroeder

Vanderpump Rules’ Stassi Schroeder has emerged as a vocal advocate for breast reduction surgery. In an interview with Glamour, she declared, “It was the best decision I ever made.” The Straight Up with Stassi podcast host said, “My nipples are seven inches higher than they used to be and it’s awesome. I refuse to wear a bra now. I refuse to wear a bra because I’m so excited that I have smaller boobs and that my nipples are not pointed down to my knees. It is one of the best decisions that I ever made.”

Soleil Moon Frye

The beloved “Punky Brewster” underwent breast reduction surgery at just 16 years old, citing both physical and psychological reasons. “My shoulders had indentations, I had back problems, there were so many different issues,” she shared with People. Struggling with gigantomastia, Frye expressed the profound impact her large breasts had on her self-esteem. “It was hard for me even to give somebody a hug… My breasts became an insecurity,” she admitted.

Marie Osmond

Osmond candidly shared that she underwent the surgery in her early twenties. “When I did ‘The Sound of Music,’ all they did was talk about the hills were alive! That’s all they saw were my boobs.” Osmond said her decision to undergo surgery was driven by both physical discomfort and a desire to reclaim her narrative. “I was like an E cup… women can get so big and you look like human zippers,” she said.

Ariel Winter

For Modern Family star Ariel Winter, the decision to undergo a breast reduction at 17 was a pivotal moment in her journey to self-acceptance. “I remember being in my sister’s wedding and being so flat and thinking, I just wish I would grow boobs! And then overnight I did,” she told Glamour. “But then they kept growing and growing and growing, and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop,” she said. “I’m excited to finally actually feel confident and not just appear confident.” Transitioning from a 32F to a 34D, Winter said, “I got it for myself. I can’t even really put it into words about how amazing it feels to really feel right.”
