Reasons to Consider Getting a Breast Reduction

Even though big breasts are something that are idolized in today’s society, many women are opting to get a breast reduction. A breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, involves removing excess tissue, skin, and fat from the breasts in order to reduce their size. There are many reasons women opt to get a breast reduction – some cosmetic and some medical.

Alleviate Back and Neck Pain

Having large breasts can put a lot of strain on the body. That is why many women who have large breasts suffer from back and neck pain. The neck and back pain can make it hard for people to complete their normal activities. Many women opt to get breast reduction in order to alleviate their back pain. Furthermore, a breast reduction can make it easier for a woman to exercise. This can improve a woman’s quality of life.

Improved Self-Esteem

Women who have large breasts often have to endure stares and unwanted comments about their breasts. Because of this, many women with large breasts suffer from self-esteem issues. Additionally, women may feel self-conscious because they feel like their breasts are too large for their figure. Some women choose to get a breast reduction because they want to improve their self-esteem.

Improved Posture

Women who have large breasts are prone to posture problems. They may find it difficult to stand up straight or relax their shoulders. It is important to note that poor posture can also lead to health problems, such as jaw pain, headaches, stomach pains and reduced lung function. A breast reduction can help improve posture.

Breathe Easier

Having large breasts can also make it harder for one to breathe. Large breasts can also worsen asthma symptoms. Additionally, large breasts make it harder to breath by causing poor posture. It is estimated that poor posture can reduce lung capacity by up to 30 percent. That is why many women notice that they have an easier time breathing after getting a breast reduction.

Better-Fitting Clothes

Many women with large breasts have trouble finding clothes that fit them. They may even have trouble finding bras that fit them. Many women find that they have a wider selection of clothes and bras to choose from after they get a breast reduction. This another reason many women have improved self-esteem after they get a breast reduction.
