Reasons for Having Breast Reduction Surgery
There are many reasons why women choose to have breast reduction surgery. They help women:
- Feel more comfortable. That’s because large breasts are heavy, and can cause neck pain, back pain, skin irritation and posture problems.
- Avoid painful shoulder indentations and back pain. Heavy breasts cause a constant pull of bra straps that leave painful indentations in a woman’s shoulder and are responsible for back pain. These symptoms tend to improve significantly or even resolve completely with a breast reduction, which is why this procedure has one of the highest satisfaction rates of any surgery.
- Participate in sporting activities. Large, heavy breasts often place limits on women and keep them from participating in sports and other activities. Large breasts often make physical activities painful and can be awkward for some women.
- Avoid embarrassment. When breasts are out of proportion to a woman’s height and weight it can be embarrassing. This is especially true for teenagers and young women, who often feel self-conscious wearing swimsuits or other forms of revealing clothing. It’s also hard to find clothing that actually fits well.
