For many women, breast reduction surgery can have life-changing benefits. Very large breasts can negatively impact your life in many ways. Whether you are experiencing physical, aesthetic or psychological concerns associated with the size of your breasts, a breast reduction procedure can give you a new lease on life.
At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, our team has helped countless numbers of women improve the quality of their life through breast reduction. The following benefits are just some of the reasons why so many women opt for this procedure.
Alleviation of Physical Discomfort
Overly large breasts can result in serious physical pain, especially in women whose frames aren’t large enough to adequately support the weight of their breasts. Common physical issues associated with large breasts include:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Uncomfortable grooves in the shoulders caused by bra straps digging into your skin
- Difficulty breathing
- Numbness in your hands and fingers
- Skin irritation and rashes on the underside of the breasts
For many women, the physical discomfort associated with large breasts can have a devastating impact on their quality of life. By achieving a smaller breast size that is more proportional to your body, you can eliminate this physical discomfort once and for all.
A More Balanced and Proportional Figure
When your breasts are too large for your frame, it can create an unbalanced and disproportionate figure. It’s common for women with very large breasts to appear to be heavy when in fact they are fit and at an appropriate body weight.
Breast reduction can help bring the size of your breasts into proportion with the rest of your body. This will improve your overall figure, helping you look and feel your best.
Improved Ability to Enjoy Athletic Activities
Large breasts can interfere with an active lifestyle. Running and other aerobic exercises can be more challenging due to the weight of your breasts. You may also experience a reduction in your range of motion, impacting your ability to enjoy activities such as tennis, golf or swimming.
A smaller breast size can make it much easier to perform your favorite athletic activities. Not only will you be able to enjoy these activities without experiencing any pain, but you will most likely experience improved performance.
Improved Appearance in Clothing
It can be challenging to find clothing that fits you properly when you have very large breasts. You may need to wear larger clothing sizes to ensure your breasts fit comfortably. Unfortunately, these larger sizes may not be the most flattering way to accentuate your figure.
Breast reduction can restore a more proportional breast size, allowing you to wear clothes that highlight your beautiful figure. Not only will you look better in clothes, but it may be easier to find outfits that you like.
The weight of large breasts can force you to hunch over, leading to a variety of posture problems. One benefit of smaller, lighter breasts is an ability to stand up taller. This will make you look better, and it will also reduce your risk of back issues commonly associated with poor posture.
Reduction in Unwanted Attention
Large breasts can often result in unwanted attention from others. This can impact both social and professional interactions. It can be frustrating to feel like people are always staring at your breasts instead of looking you in the eye. Breast reduction can help eliminate this issue once and for all.
It’s common for women to experience a boost in self-confidence and an improved body image after breast reduction. Whether you feel more attractive in clothing and swimsuits, experience less self-consciousness over your breast size or are finally free of unwanted attention focused on your breasts, this improved self-confidence can permeate into all areas of your life, helping you put forth the best version of yourself.
