Alleviate Back Pain with a Breast Reduction

Many women think that they want larger breasts. If you’re a woman with large breasts, you might tell them to reconsider. You’ve been living with excessively large breasts for much too long, and they are bringing you down. There’s a burden of extra weight on your chest, and it’s working against you with some help from the force of gravity. The weight is tugging on your neck and your shoulders all of the time, making them ache. Worst of all, it’s giving you considerable back pain. You can’t find relief. You’ve tried pain relievers, the chiropractor, and a variety of support bras, but nothing has eliminated your pain. If you are tired of the strain of larger breasts, it’s time to think about a breast reduction.

Why Undergo a Breast Reduction?

When you choose to have a breast reduction, you can target the source of your back pain. Excessively large breasts can make it feel like you are carrying ten pounds or more of extra weight with you all of the time. That weight can wear you down as you struggle to even maintain good posture. Breast reduction can benefit women with large breasts by reducing their size to one that is more proportional to the rest of the body. This can relieve the back pain and discomfort that comes with large breasts, allowing patients to lead more comfortable, healthy lives!

What Happens During a Breast Reduction Surgery?

Before surgery begins, your plastic surgeon will make you comfortable with general anesthesia. Incisions will be made in your breasts, and excess tissue will be removed. Your surgeon will then close your incisions, and you will be sent home to recover. Once you are able to go home, expect to wear a support bra to help ease your discomfort. This can also keep the swelling down. You’ll need to limit your physical activity in order to ease the strain on your breasts. It is important to take care of your incisions to avoid infection. Once you have completely healed, you will be able to enjoy the relief of lighter breasts.
