Top Benefits of Having a Breast Reduction Surgery 

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a breast reduction surgery is a safe and effective way of enhancing your appearance and quality of life. However, before undergoing any cosmetic surgery, it’s important to book a consultation with a surgeon to determine if this is the right procedure for you. 

Here are some of the great benefits of having a breast reduction surgery:

1. Alleviation of Back Pain 

The weight of heavy breasts often results in strain and discomfort in your back, neck, and shoulders. When you opt to reduce your breast size, you can alleviate all of that tension, reduce/eliminate pain, and improve your quality of life. 

2. Improved Aesthetic Appearance 

Your plastic surgeon may recommend a breast reduction surgery if your large breasts are disproportionate to your body frame. By reducing the size, you’ll enjoy a more well-balanced figure, with breasts that are more shapely, perkier, and youthful looking. 

3. Better Fit of Clothing 

If you have large breasts, finding clothes that fit can be difficult and frustrating. With breasts that are well proportioned for your body, you’ll be able to fit into clothing better and alleviate some of the hassle when shopping and deciding what to wear. It’ll also provide relief from your bra straps digging into your shoulders, which can cause pain, marks, and even scarring. 

4. More Active Lifestyle

Women with large breasts might find it difficult to live an active lifestyle. One of the biggest benefits of a breast reduction surgery is that it will improve your exercise experience. If breast, shoulder, or back discomfort keeps you from exercising, then reducing your breast size could make you more active. 

5. Improved Hygiene 

When you have large breasts, the lower breast and breast fold can be susceptible to rashes or infections. A breast reduction surgery can provide relief from these rashes, and even prevent them altogether, resulting in improved hygiene and better health.
