Rachel Bloom is feeling like a brand new woman after undergoing a breast reduction.
The former Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star unveiled the results of her surgery in an Instagram post with before and after photos.
Rachel, 34, decided to book in the procedure after growing ‘uncomfortable’ with the size of her breasts after giving birth to her first child with husband Dan Gregor last year.
In the before photo, the actress is seen with surgical markings drawn across her chest while being prepped for surgery. The next image shows her chest bandaged up while laying in bed post-op.
She explained in the caption: ‘I did it! Before pregnancy, I hadn’t ever craved a breast reduction. I was pretty happy with where my body was at.
‘I mean, at times, my dd/ddd boobs (size dependent on time of month) were annoying and sweaty (and yes, heavy), but I was lucky to never really experience major physical discomfort from them.’
Revealing her feelings about her breasts changed, Rachel continued: ‘But then, I got pregnant and grew very quickly from a dd/ddd to a size G. Then, after breastfeeding, their entire texture changed; they got super super soft, which is a thing that pregnancy/breastfeeding does that no one really tells you about.

‘So at the end of it all it felt like I had a pair of big soft balls weighing down my chest. (Like post-shower balls. Really relaxed. You know).’
Rachel began to experience underboob rashes, shoulder grooving, which is when your bra strap digs into the skin, neck issues and night sweats that forced her to sleep with a pillow between her breasts.
‘I met with 3 doctors and, over the course of a few months, settled on someone lovely. My request was to just go back my pre-pregnancy size (if not maybe a little bit smaller),’ Rachel said.
The star then revealed: ‘I’m still healing so we’ll see what happens. But I already feel more comfortable and relieved.
‘Lesson/conclusion/stunning revelation from this experience TBD?!’
Rachel has often mocked her ample cleavage in the past and wrote the song, Heavy Boobs, about them for a Crazy Ex-Girlfriend episode.
