Do you have naturally large breasts that cause physical discomfort and make normal day-to-day activities challenging? If so, breast reduction can help relieve these concerns and improve your quality of life. But what are the benefits of breast reduction?
What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammaplasty is a surgical procedure that is done to reduce the size of large breasts. It involves removing excess skin, fat, and tissue from the breasts to achieve more proportional contours. Breast reduction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and takes around 3 hours.
What Are The Benefits Of Breast Reduction?
- Relieves Back And Neck Pain
Women with very large breasts typically experience chronic back pain, as well as pain in the neck and shoulders due to the excess weight of the breasts. Breast reduction eases the pressure on the muscles and tendons in the back and neck, and this helps to relieve the pain.
- Reduces Skin Rashes
Large breasts can lead to skin issues such as rashes, irritation, and chafing. Breast reduction helps to resolve these issues.
- Makes Exercising Easier
Having oversized breasts prevents some women from leading an active lifestyle because they cause discomfort when exercising. However, after breast reduction, they can participate in vigorous exercise without difficulty.
- Alleviates Grooves In The Shoulders
Most women with very large breasts have grooves in their shoulders because the weight of their breasts causes the bra-straps to dig into their skin. Breast reduction reduces the volume of the breasts and relieves shoulder grooves.
Women who undergo breast reduction usually end up feeling more confident and attractive after surgery.
