In addition to reducing the size of your breasts, breast reduction surgery benefits typically include:
Relief from Pain: Having large breasts can strain your back, shoulders and neck. You may also suffer from skin irritation due to your bras or the skin rubbing. Running, even with a sports bra, can be painful as well. In addition, larger breasts can sometimes cause shortness of breath. By reducing the size of the breasts, the patient can eliminate these physical discomforts from her life.
More Confidence: Some women with large breasts tend to experience embarrassment from unwanted attention or may be too self-conscious to go to the beach or gym. Getting a breast reduction can help a person feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Better Sleep Quality: With large breasts, finding a comfortable position to sleep can be difficult and place stress on other areas of your body. You may be forced to constantly sleep on your side, which can be irritating to the hip and shoulder pressed to the mattress. Belly sleeping may be impossible, and you may find it hard to breathe while sleeping on your back. A breast reduction, once healed, will make sleeping in any position more comfortable.
More Wardrobe Options: Women with large breasts often have difficulty finding properly-fitting clothing and bras. By making your breasts proportionate to the rest of your body, you’ll find bras, blouses and tops are much easier to fit and will allow for a wider variety of wardrobe options.
The best breast reduction results are those that help you feel beautiful and more comfortable. While each breast reduction patient experiences a unique outcome, most women are completely satisfied with their results and benefits.
