Overly large breasts can have many negative effects on quality of life such as back and neck pain, self-consciousness, low self-esteem, shortness of breath, and impeding enjoyment of physical activity. Many women and girls with extremely large breasts feel that they cannot participate in sports or other physical activity, feel that it restricts the clothes they can wear, and feel uncomfortable in public. For many, a breast reduction can significantly improve health, happiness, comfort, and self-esteem.
During a breast reduction, excess tissue and skin are removed from the breasts and the breasts are reshaped. Breast reduction is performed in a hospital, or other surgical centre under general anesthesia. It is a safe procedure, and usually doesn’t require an overnight stay. Breast reduction has proven to be very successful, improving many lives.
If you feel that your breasts are causing health issues, discomfort, and self-consciousness, you may want to consider a breast reduction. Here are some signs a breast reduction is right for you:
1. Do you experience back and neck pain?
Excess weight in the chest causes shoulders to roll forward, compressing the back and neck and causing pain and discomfort. It can also cause structural changes in the spine and neck, including premature curvature of the spine. If you’re experiencing this sort of pain, a breast reduction will work wonders.
2. Do you feel limited physically and socially by your breast size?
Large breasts can make girls and women feel uncomfortable in their own skin. The self-consciousness and physical discomfort that comes with having extremely large breasts may make you unable to participate in sports, and other physical activities. It can also affect the kind of clothing you can wear.
If you feel uncomfortable about your breasts, you may feel you cannot wear certain clothes that you would otherwise like to wear! It can also turn a fun outing like a day at the beach into a self-conscious crisis, as you may feel insecure in a swimsuit, or other revealing clothing.
Your body shouldn’t stop you from living your life to the fullest. If you feel your breasts are getting in the way of your enjoyment of life, it’s time to make a change.
3. Do you experience other symptoms such as headaches, or shortness of breath?
Extremely large breasts have also been linked to migraine headaches, dizziness, and shortness of breath. You may also experience numbness or tingling in your arms. This is all caused by the extra weight and pressure on your chest. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction.
Some women try to manage pain, discomfort, and self consciousness by wearing loose clothing, trying to lose weight, taking pain medication, and even going for physical therapy. However, nothing is as effective as a breast reduction.
