As it turns out, being “blessed with a large chest” isn’t necessarily a good thing. While it may seem strange to think that big breasts are not desirable to some women, those who have them can likely list off many reasons why. You may be considering a breast reduction to better enhance your breast to body ratio, but there are also many other benefits to a mammoplasty, including:
Reduced Back Pain
For those who have a large bust, you know that the extra weight can cause stress on your back, neck and shoulders. All that extra fat tissue can be quite heavy, believe it or not, as the ligaments beneath them are not meant to hold onto heavy thing for an extended period of time.
Gradually, the rope-like ligaments attached to the chest wall will begin to lose their ability to remain and tight and secure—causing breasts to sag and become even more painful for the neck and shoulders. A breast reduction surgery can help keep you from developing chronic back pain and allow you a more comfortable posture.
Working out with big, heavy breasts can be extremely painful for some women. It can be hard to find a bra that is supportive enough to keep them in place as you run, jump or bounce during exercise. And exercises like jumping jacks and burpees can not only be uncomfortable, but also embarrassing to do near other people.
Having too-large of breasts can also cause you to feel constantly short of breath, even during everyday activities like walking. Asthma sufferers, in particular, can benefit from a reduction. But enjoying a smaller chest by undergoing a procedural reduction is ideal for any women who are experiencing pain. The surgery can make an active lifestyle much easier and more enjoyable.
Improved Skin Health
Skin irritation and rashes are common underneath large breasts. All the extra weight can also make your bra straps dig into the shoulders and cause rubbing, burning and even itching. By reducing your breast size, you can lessen the friction that causes these annoying issues and enjoy a more pain-free way of living.
Boost of Confidence
Unusually large breasts can often make a woman, regardless of age, feel extremely self-conscious. Having breasts are a big part of enjoying femininity, but when they’re so large that they cause you embarrassment, it may be time for a mammoplasty. The procedure will remove excess fat, skin and glandular tissue, and allow for smaller, lighter and firmer-looking breasts.
With a reduction surgery, you can enjoy better-shaped breasts that are in proportion to the rest of your body.
