If you have oversized breasts, you already know that large, heavy breasts can cause pain, discomfort and a disproportionate figure. Breast reduction surgery can alleviate the physical and emotional challenges caused by overly-large breasts by removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin. Not only does the procedure deliver attractive aesthetic results, it also allows you to enjoy an overall better quality of life. Because of the numerous benefits of breast reduction surgery, it’s no surprise that it ranks among the highest in patient satisfaction of all plastic surgery procedures.
The decision to undergo any type of breast surgery is very personal, and should involve the guidance of our experienced plastic surgeon. During your initial consultation, we will work to clearly understand your concerns, answer your questions and determine your candidacy for breast reduction.
Why should you consider breast reduction surgery? Here are five great reasons:
1 – Fewer Neck, Back and Posture Problems
Oversized breasts can be a major problem for your body’s muscular and skeletal systems, throwing things off-balance and causing ongoing discomfort and pain. Breast reduction surgery helps to ease the weight that your neck and back need to support every day, eliminating the associated body aches and the pain of bra straps digging into your shoulders. Your posture will improve without the added weight, and your entire upper body will feel generally lighter and more comfortable. As an added bonus, your quality of sleep may improve.
2 – A Balanced Figure
Just because large breasts can occur naturally, it doesn’t mean that they necessarily look natural. Overly-large breasts can make your figure look off balance, top heavy and disproportionate. Breast reduction can improve your overall body shape by producing a more balanced, natural-looking ratio between your hips and bust. Of course, breasts are not naturally identical to each other in shape or size and every woman experiences some degree of asymmetry. However, when breasts are oversized, this asymmetry is more dramatically pronounced. Not only does breast reduction modify the size and overall shape of the breasts, it also improves symmetry.
3 – Increased Physical Activity
When your breasts are smaller and lighter, the stress on your back, neck and shoulders is reduced and related pain is eliminated. Your back muscles will be less strained, and the pressure that bra straps impose on your shoulders is significantly diminished or prevented altogether.
Following the procedure, you will be able to increase your level of physical activity. Running, walking and other types of aerobic exercise will be easier to perform, both physically and emotionally. If you are no longer embarrassed to work out or participate in recreational activities, it’s easier to get into shape, lose weight and feel confident in your health and appearance.
4 – Greater Wardrobe Options
When it comes to clothing, finding a perfect fit can be challenging for anyone. However, with oversized breasts, your wardrobe options are severely limited. You may already struggle with finding an outfit that you love fitting well everywhere except your chest area. Breast reduction surgery will significantly broaden your wardrobe options and make it easier to fit comfortably into conventional sizes.
5 – Improved Confidence and Self Esteem
Simple pleasures like wearing a more accessibly-sized bra and finding clothes that fit will make you feel better. You can purchase blouses that close without gaps, bathing suits that fit your frame and in some cases even look younger. Your newly proportioned silhouette will give you the confidence you deserve to get more active and engage in more social events.
