Although the primary goal of breast reduction is to help a woman achieve smaller, more proportionate breasts, many women experience additional benefits that significantly improve their quality of life. While a breast reduction is not guaranteed to provide these benefits in every patient, patients frequently report the following after surgery. Let’s take a look.
#1: Relief from Chronic Pain
Many women with disproportionately large breasts experience chronic physical pain in their backs, necks, and shoulders. In some cases, the pain can radiate down through the arms and fingers, limiting or restricting daily activities. By reducing your breast size, tension caused by the weight of heavy breasts can be alleviated – minimizing or even removing pain altogether.
#2: More Enjoyable Shopping Experience
Finding clothes that fit properly when you have extremely large breasts can be difficult. Most often any clothing that doesn’t pull tight across your chest (or leave gaps) is oddly-sized and hangs unflatteringly off the rest of the body. A breast reduction procedure can ease some of the stress of shopping, increasing your options and giving you more freedom to dress how you want.
#3: A Well-Balanced Figure
Some women are unhappy with the shape, size, or firmness of their large breasts. Others are self-conscious about having asymmetrical breasts. Women who have large breasts but small frames may wish for a more proportionate figure. Whichever applies to you, breast reduction surgery can give you the well-balanced figure you desire.
