January 4th, 2017 | Breast

Benefits of a Breast Reduction: Are your large breasts constantly catching unwanted attention? Do you suffer from back and neck pain, even if you don’t have scoliosis, or you’re too young to be suffering from osteoporosis? If you suffer from any of these discomforts due to your large breasts, you can find relief by getting a breast reduction surgery.

The Gift of Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a safe and effective surgical procedure that removes excess breast fat, skin, and glandular tissue. It’s used primarily to make breasts more proportional to a woman’s frame and to give permanent relief from aches and pains due to large breasts.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of requests for breast reduction surgery is on the rise due to its cosmetic and health benefits.

Health Perks of Breast Reduction

A breast reduction can make your figure more balanced, sleek, and proportional. However, there are benefits for this surgical treatment that go beyond aesthetics. If you’re considering getting a breast reduction, also known as a reduction mammoplasty, you can also enjoy the following perks:

  1. Better Sleep

You will be able to sleep in whatever position you want to. You no longer have to worry about the extra weight placed on your chest muscles and tendons. With this freedom, unrestful sleep will be a thing of the past.

  1. Feel More Confident

Getting unwanted attention due to your large breasts can take a toll on your self-esteem. Once you decide to reduce your large breasts to a more modest size, you’ll begin to feel less anxious and self-conscious. You can even exercise, and move more freely than before. By getting proportional breasts, you can finally celebrate your femininity without having to hide it.

  1. Relief from Chronic Skin Irritations

Aside from getting relief from back, neck and shoulder pains, you’ll also enjoy relief from rashes and skin irritations. These skin issues are commonly due to wearing ill-fitting bras, sweating, poor air circulation and many others.

  1. Shop Stylish Clothes

Since most clothes are made for the average woman, your options for stylish clothes will widen once you have a breast reduction, which can boost your self-confidence. You can even buy swimsuits and bikinis and be confident about how you’re going to look.

  1. Improve Posture

A heavy chest can cause the back to hunch, leading to a permanent rounding shape of the upper spine. Breast reduction can help you stand tall with your back straight, making you look more confident.

Breast reduction surgery is not just a treatment to improve appearance. It also offers wonderful health benefits. Best of all, men and women can greatly benefit from this.
