- Posted on: May 5 2014
Large breasts can be uncomfortable, and for some, unflattering. For patients experiencing pain or self-esteem issues caused by overly large breasts, breast reduction surgery may be the best option.
So what are some important benefits of this surgery? Keep reading to learn more about how you may benefit from this procedure.
Top 3 Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery
- Less physical pain. There is little doubt that having large breasts can cause numerous issues. Perhaps the biggest advantage of a breast reduction surgery is that it can help relieve back and neck pains, which are caused by having breasts that are simply too large for your body. In addition to physical pains, large breasts can also cause skin irritation, and issues with standing up straight. Heavy breasts may also cause a woman’s bra straps to leave behind painful marks on their shoulders! Breast reduction surgery is highly effective for reducing such issues.
- Improves your appearance. Many women feel very self-conscious walking around with breasts that are too large, since they can often cause them to receive unwanted attention. Breasts that are not proportionate to your height or weight can be quite embarrassing, especially for very young women and teenagers.
- Improvements in your lifestyle. Although you may need to take some time off from exercising and other physical activities following breast reduction surgery, the procedure is extremely beneficial in many ways. Following this surgery, your daily activities (including exercising) will become far more comfortable. Best of all, reducing the size of the breasts will enable you to find clothing and swimsuits that look and feel better on you!
This surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and usually lasts 2 to 4 hours. Side-effects are minimal, though some may experience scarring and changes in the sensation of nipples. The procedure removes fat and tissue, and involves tightening the skin so that breasts are more proportionate to your body. Post-surgery, it may be necessary to wear a surgical bra for about a month as you recover, though stitches will usually be removed after about a week.
