Exciting Benefits of Breast Reduction
By Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists, on September 14, 2021
While many patients’ primary motivation for seeking plastic surgery is to improve their appearance, breast reduction patients are often looking for a higher quality of life. Chances are, if you’ve been considering breast reduction, you have been thinking about how much easier and nicer your life may become with a more manageable cup size. Here, the elite team of surgeons at Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists share some of the exciting benefits that you may experience after breast reduction.
If you are like many women with large breasts, you may not even be conscious of how much you slouch. The weight of your breasts pulls your upper body downwards. Once your chest is a more manageable size, however, you will find yourself sitting and standing up straighter thanks to this newfound relief.
Sleeping in More Positions
Women with large breasts often find that the only position they can sleep in comfortably is to lie flat on their backs. Stomach sleeping is completely out of the question, and even side sleeping can put too much pressure on the breasts. With a reduced chest size, suddenly you can enjoy multiple ways to fall asleep in maximum comfort.
The Ability to Blend In
Large breasts tend to attract a lot of attention, often when that attention is unwanted. When even loose clothing cannot conceal your figure, you are all too aware that receiving stares can be an everyday occurrence. After breast reduction, you should find it easier to run a simple errand without getting any unwelcome comments.
Many women who have breast reduction gain a renewed interest in working out. Suddenly, so many forms of exercise that used to be nearly impossible even with a sports bra are that much more manageable. When you know you can jog without causing yourself additional pain, you are likely to be more motivated to exercise.
Putting Away Pain Medication
Do you frequently have a sore neck, back or shoulders? Ordinarily, this can be attributed to a number of factors, but large breasts should be considered a top suspect. If you suffer from chronic pain, you may discover that the ibuprofen you take to get through the day is no longer required.
