Bigger is not always better. While many women desire a larger bust, making it one of the most popular areas augmented by plastic surgeons, there are many women that experience difficulties that come with large breasts. These challenges can get in the way of everyday activities and even your health. Breast reduction is a reconstructive outpatient procedure that can also improve posture and make everyday activities more comfortable. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if:
You Have Chronic Back Pain
Large breasts can be very heavy causing your back to work harder to stand up straight, causing strain. In addition to back pain, the weight of heavy breasts can cause neck and shoulder pain and may even go as far as causing headaches.
Your Physical Activity Is Limited
Finding proper support for larger breasts when exercising is very difficult. Women with large breasts will often have a very hard time finding sports bras that provide enough support to make moderate to high-intensity workouts comfortable. By reducing the size and weight of the breasts, mobility can be increased.
You Have a Hard Time Finding Clothes
Women considering breast reduction often do so because they find their breasts to be disproportionate to the rest of their body. This can make clothes fit awkwardly. For example, button down tops usually must be purchased in a larger size to lay properly over the breasts without gaping at the buttons. This makes finding a proper size for your whole body very difficult. When breasts are more proportionate to the rest of your frame, finding clothes is easier and you won’t have to sacrifice fit for coverage.
