Breast Reduction Improves Overall Quality of Life

Breast enhancement surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. Newer implants and surgical techniques are introduced each year, resulting in fewer complications and quicker recovery. But not all women are actually thrilled with their large breasts. For these women, a breast reduction procedure is the answer!

Most women who have breast reduction do so because of the physical discomfort caused by their extremely large, or heavy, breasts. The most common reasons for women who are considering breast reduction include the following:

  • Persistent chafing and/or skin irritation underneath the breasts
  • Painful grooves in the shoulders due to bra straps digging into the skin
  • Limited movement during exercise or physical activity
  • Poor posture
  • Back pain
  • Difficulty in finding well-fitting undergarments and clothes

In some cases, having large breasts may go beyond physical discomfort, leading to reduced self-esteem and extreme self-consciousness. “I’m tired of being stared at by men when I go out” is a common statement of women wanting breast reduction during personal consultations.

Ultimately, a breast reduction procedure can improve a woman’s quality of life. After surgery, you don’t have to worry about being stared at when wearing your favorite bikini or tank top. Plus, you will most likely notice significant improvements in posture and experience less back pain.
