Signs You Could Benefit From Breast Reduction

July 22 2019

Breast reduction is one of the most common and rewarding surgical procedures performed at Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists. By removing excess breast skin and tissue, breast reduction can alleviate the physical and emotional burden caused by heavy, overly large breasts.

In this blog post, we discuss three common signs you may need a breast reduction.

You Experience Frequent Back Pain

Neck, back and shoulder pain caused by pendulant breasts is a big indicator that you can benefit from breast reduction surgery. Overly large breasts can be heavy and difficult to hold up, affecting posture and even possibly leading to migraine headaches.

You Avoid Exercise

Exercising can be painful due to the repeated bouncing of large breasts. In addition, it’s harder for sweat to evaporate from under overly large breasts, which can lead to bacteria buildup, infections and rashes.

If you avoid exercise because of the size of your bust, breast reduction can make physical activities more hygienic, enjoyable and comfortable.

You Are Self-Conscious

Are you constantly self-conscious about your appearance due to your overly large breasts? Do you find yourself hiding your breasts or avoiding certain social events or activities to avoid getting unwanted attention? Do you find it frustrating to shop for clothes that fit properly on your disproportionate body? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Many of our breast reduction patients report feeling embarrassed about their appearance due to their enlarged breasts. Following breast reduction, these feelings of self-consciousness and emotional discomfort are likely to go away, because the breasts will be more proportionate and lighter.
