Every year, more and more patients look at breast reduction surgery (also known as reduction mammoplasty) as an option for alleviating their discomfort within their bodies. Some may not think it, but disproportionately large breasts can cause a number of issues for women, and sometimes the only solution is to reduce the size of the bust.
There are various techniques used in breast reduction surgery, but it commonly involves the removal of excess glandular tissue, fat, and loose skin, leaving you with a more petite, firm bust. Reduction mammoplasties are not only for aesthetics, but can also serve many practical purposes, some of which can be life-altering for those who opt for this type of surgery.
Back, Neck, and Shoulder Pain
One of the more common reasons for a breast reduction surgery is that large, pendulous breasts mean that extra weight causes the neck, back, and shoulder muscles to strain. Muscles have to work hard to keep your posture upright, and a constant disruption in good posture may even lead to skeletal deformities and further complications
Difficulties Finding Clothing That Fits
Finding tops and dresses that fit may be nearly impossible with a large bust. Women with larger breasts find it difficult to wear button shirts or blouses, and experience that they look out of proportion in their clothing choices. Most women with bigger chests also struggle to find comfortable bras that fit, resulting in bra straps that dig painfully into shoulders.
Exercising Can Be Painful
When thinking of exercise, a major concern for some ladies is finding a supportive sports bra – and even then, there is no guarantee that it will offer the right amount of support. Exercising with large breasts is not only painful, but it also takes a lot more exertion to balance, retain correct posture, and carry the extra weight on your chest.
Cosmetic surgery is no replacement for a healthy diet, regular exercise, and taking care of your wellbeing, but once all these options have been exhausted with little to no results, a reduction mammoplasty may be the best path to take. There is no reason why any woman should feel uncomfortable and insecure with her own body. After a breast reduction surgery, most patients are not only pleased with the cosmetic alteration, but also find physical relief from the pain they’ve suffered for years.
