Could Breast Reduction Surgery Alleviate My Lower Back Pain?

Do you ever feel like having large, full breasts may be more of a curse than a blessing? This especially seems true the longer you carry that excess weight around as you age. Whether you have always had an ample bust, have experienced fluctuations in weight, or have seen your breast size increase after pregnancy, discomfort can result from your larger cup size.

When your breasts are out of proportion with the rest of your body, that excess weight can throw you off balance, causing problems with your posture, neck, or shoulders. If you are plagued with pain in your lower back that will not respond to medication or therapy, breast reduction surgery could be the answer.

Skip the Back Surgery and Have a Breast Reduction Instead

Your chronic pain in your lower back may have nothing to do with your back and everything to do with your bust size. If you are compensating for the weight of your breasts by carrying yourself in a certain way, it can result in stress to your back. Breast reduction surgery can ease the strain on your back as well as your neck and shoulders. You won’t believe the difference when you get that excess weight off of your chest.

What to Expect During Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. Once you arrive at the office, you will be provided with anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Small incisions are made in your breasts and the fat, as well as excess tissue, are removed to reduce the size of your breasts. The incisions will be closed, and you will be sent home to recover. You will wear bandaging and may need a support bra to reduce swelling and minimize discomfort. You will be advised about care for your incisions and activity restrictions.
