3 Reasons Why You Might Want to Consider a Breast Reduction

In our society, bigger and fuller breasts tend to be the most popular and sought-after aesthetic for women. While many women desire larger and more voluminous breasts, there are many women who have naturally large breasts, and for women with overly large breasts, these “attributes” can be anything but a blessing. Luckily breast reduction surgery can minimize the size of your breasts to help you live a happier, more fulfilling life. With breast reduction surgery, your plastic surgeon will remove excess fat, tissue, and skin in your breasts to give you smaller breasts that are more balanced to your body. Below are three reasons why breast reduction surgery may be right for you.

1. Pain and Discomfort

Many women with overly large breasts experience pain, either in their backs or shoulders, due to the weight of their breasts. Though rare, some women have even experienced spinal deformities due to the size of their breasts. Additionally, women with overly large breasts can suffer from skin irritation (chafing) from the breasts rubbing against each other or the surrounding skin. Breast reduction surgery can alleviate much of this pain and discomfort by reducing the weight that you need to carry in your breasts along with the amount of skin that rubs together. 

2. Unwanted Attention

Women with overly large breasts tend to receive a lot of unwanted attention. Whether you are a young woman with large breasts or a woman more mature in age, this can make you feel embarrassed and self-conscious. While many people enjoy being the talk of the town, don’t you want people to be focusing on you as a person and not just your large breast size? After your breast reduction surgery, you won’t need to worry about what others are saying about your body. Instead, you can allow people to get to know you for who you are.

3. Inability to Participate in Activities

Nothing can be more frustrating than not being able to enjoy your favorite activities. Unfortunately, for women with overly large breasts, this happens more often than not. Whether it be competitive sports or games in the backyard, physical activities (and exercise) can be extremely difficult with overly large breasts. After your breast reduction surgery, though, you can go on jogs, or run around the backyard with your kids, or play intramural sports without your breasts getting in the way.

So, Why Breast Reduction?

In the end, it really comes down to your personal comfort. If you feel uncomfortable with the size of your breasts, whether because of pain, unwanted attention, embarrassment, or not being able to participate in your favorite activities, then you owe it to yourself to correct the issue so that you feel good with the way you look. And with breast reduction surgery, you will be able to walk around, feeling confident in your appearance.
