Bigger is not always better or even more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Many women with well-developed breasts experience a negative impact on their daily activities and overall health. For these women, a breast reduction benefits can help alleviate back pain, improve posture, and help their body look more in proportion.
Carrying the extra weight of large, heavy breasts can be a physical hindrance and a pain. Overtime, the additional weight causes the shoulders to roll forward, compressing nerve fibers in the space between your collarbone, shoulder blades, and ribs. Over time, the pain from compressed nerves in the neck and upper back can become debilitating. Bra straps can dig into the shoulders and chaffing under the breasts can cause additional discomfort.
Many women are unhappy and self-conscious about the shape, size, and firmness of their large breasts. Their breasts may be asymmetrical and they desire to have them be evenly sized. Women with petite stature may be self-conscious of oversized breasts that appear out of proportion to the rest of the body. As a result, some patients have reported experiencing depression or low self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery allows these patients to have their breasts reshaped into a comfortable and flattering size and shape, giving them a much-needed boost of self-confidence.
In addition to the physical benefits of breast reduction surgery, there are cosmetic benefits as well. You breasts will be lifted and firmer, appearing more youthful and your overall silhouette will be more balanced and proportioned. Bras and swimsuits will fit more comfortably and attractively. With better proportioned breasts, stretched areolas or large nipples can be reduced during your breast reduction surgery to help you feel more confident both in and out of clothing. Swimsuits, sports bras, and form-fitting clothes will look and feel better, helping boost your confidence, and allowing you to participate fully in your favorite physical activities.
If you’re considering having a breast reduction, choosing a cosmetic surgeon is the most important decision in the process. When you attend your consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, ask how frequently the doctor performs breast reduction surgery and how many total procedures he or she has performed.
