Signs That You May Benefit From Breast Reduction

Obviously, the first sign that you might want to consider breast reduction is if you have abnormally-large breasts. Excessively-large breasts can make your frame look disproportionate and attract unwanted attention. Not only can heavy breasts be exhausting to carry around, but they can cause a number of long-term health problems and prevent you from living a fully active lifestyle.

Breast reduction surgery may be an ideal procedure for you if you experience:

  • Neck and back pain: One of the most common complaints from women with overly-large breasts is the discomfort of neck and back pain. Over time, this pain can get worse and prohibit you from engaging in a variety of physical activities.
  • Poor posture: Abnormally-large breasts can ultimately lead to serious posture problems that only get worse over time. These issues can lead to chronic pain, an arched back, and spinal cord problems.
  • Difficulty with physical activities: Exercise and physical activities are essential for a healthy lifestyle. Large breasts can limit your movements and keep you from participating in all the activities you’d enjoy.
  • Difficulty finding clothes that fit: If you live with excessively-large breasts, you likely already know how challenging it can be to find clothes that fit properly.
  • A desire for a more youthful look: Heavy, sagging breasts can diminish a youthful appearance. Breast reduction can help create a more youthful-looking figure.
