Are your large breasts causing you discomfort? Breast reduction is a popular surgery for women who find their breasts too large for their liking or those whose breasts are causing physical pain like back and shoulder pain. If you’ve been considering breast reduction, here is how you can benefit from this surgery:
1. Relieve Back Pain
The constant weight of large breasts can cause back, shoulder, and neck pain that might worsen over time. As we age, our shoulders start to roll forward and with the added weight of large breasts, nerve fibers can be painfully compressed in the gap between your collarbone, shoulder blades, and ribs. Additionally, bra straps can dig into the shoulders, exacerbating this discomfort.
2. Proportionate Figure
Large breasts can look out of place, especially on women with petite figures. Excessively large breasts may appear to protrude to the sides or in front of the chest and the breasts may sit low on the chest. Reducing the size of the breasts to better fit a woman’s chest can give her a more balanced appearance and greatly improve her confidence.
3. Better Fitting Clothes
A disproportionate figure can make it difficult to find clothes that both fit properly and make you feel comfortable. Oftentimes, women with large breasts must buy a larger-sized shirt or dress that drapes over their frame, but this can make clothes and shopping less fun. With smaller breasts that fit your frame, you will be able to find clothes that fit your frame and match your style!
4. Improved Skin Health
Women with large breasts may develop painful rashes or chaff under the breast folds because of friction and rubbing. Since a breast reduction lifts the breasts from the chest wall, they will no longer rub against your skin, and you will not have to worry about skin irritation.
5. Enjoyable Workouts
Exercise and other vigorous activities can be uncomfortable with large breasts that move around or cause friction on the chest. Reducing the size of your breasts could be a great way to improve your health since you will be able to get back to doing the things you love, including a healthy exercise routine.
