While the media, celebrities and what you see on the red carpet may tell you that a large, heaving bust is the ideal, many women with large breasts are unhappy with the situation. Luckily, a breast reduction can help to resolve many of the common complaints voiced by large-chested women. This surgery addresses both cosmetic and functional concerns, making it elective for some ladies and an absolute necessity for others. If you have large breasts and are considering a reduction, you are not alone. There are many benefits to this procedure.
Reduction or Cessation of Back Pain
Even with a supportive bra and an exercise program geared to strengthening the back and core, many large-breasted women suffer from back pain. It can occur low in the spine or higher, between the shoulder blades. This is caused by the excess weight of the breasts constantly pulling the woman off-balance, forcing her spine out of alignment and her muscles to struggle to compensate. If you have a bad back and your doctor has already ruled out possibilities such as disc issues, scoliosis or arthritis, the weight of your breasts may be to blame. A breast reduction can remove a lot of stress from the back, reducing or curing the pain entirely.
Easier Movement and Exercise
Large breasts can make running, biking and even walking at a brisk pace uncomfortable, even with a tight and restrictive sports bra. Even activities like swimming and tennis can be made difficult or painful by a large bust. For active women, containing their breast tissue is a never-ending battle that can result in sore shoulders, irritated skin under the band and sore breasts. Athletic women often choose a breast reduction for this reason alone, as it is a practical solution to an uncomfortable problem.
A Balancing of the Figure
Women who are otherwise trim and toned may feel their large breasts make them appear overweight or unbalanced, especially if they have narrow hips and thighs. This top-heavy appearance can make wardrobe choices more difficult, as well as making tailoring a necessity. If you would like your top half to match the rest of your figure, a breast reduction may be just the solution you’re looking for.
