Do you have oversized breasts that are causing you physical challenges? Breast reduction surgery can relieve those problems for you. But what exactly is breast reduction surgery and what are the benefits of the procedure.
What is breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that is done to reduce large, sagging breasts by removing excess glandular tissue and fat. The procedure is typically done under general anesthesia, and takes 2-3 hours to complete.
What are the benefits of breast reduction?
- Alleviates neck and back pain
Women with large, heavy breasts often experience neck and back pain. Breast reduction makes the breasts smaller and firmer, and this reduces pressure on the neck and back.
- Reduces uncomfortable skin irritation
Skin irritation is another problem women with large breasts often have to deal with. There is generally less skin irritation after breast reduction.
- Makes exercising easier
Breast reduction can improve the exercise experience for women with large breasts, because they often struggle to exercise comfortably.
- Prevents shoulder grooves
Shoulder grooves are often a concern for women with oversized breasts, because the bra straps tend to dig into the skin. Breast reduction relieves this problem.
- Improves clothing choices
Women that undergo breast reduction generally have an easier time finding clothes that fit, because their figure is more balanced after surgery.
Breast reduction is also a wonderful confidence booster for women that feel self-conscious about their large breasts. After breast reduction surgery many women feel confident because they can enjoy physical activities, or wear clothing they didn’t feel comfortable in before.
