Although large breasts are often seen as a blessing, to many women, overly large breasts can sometimes be a curse. Breasts that are too large can cause many women to experience severe pain, posture problems, and other physical and emotional issues.

Neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, shoulder strap grooves, and shortness of breath are common problems experienced by those with larger breasts. Oversized breasts can also be a hindrance while doing regular chores and exercises.

If simple tasks like bending down to pick something up or sitting at your desk seems nearly impossible, then it’s time for you to consider serious action before things get worse. As large-breasted women grow older, their breasts become heavier, causing their shoulders to hunch. Their breasts can apply an immense amount of pressure on their ribs and spine, leading to the development of even more health problems.

The Link Between Breast Size and Back Pain

Large breasts apply a lot of pressure on a woman’s shoulder blades and spine, causing them to develop back and shoulder pain. This weight can also lead to difficulty maintaining posture and make it difficult to perform some exercises. Breast weight causes sagging, making it difficult for a woman to maintain posture.

These factors can seriously affect the health of a woman, resulting in serious neck and back problems, posture problems, and severe pain. Any existing back problem is further aggravated as the woman, self-conscious about the size of her breasts, hunches forward to try and hide her chest. The connection between large breasts and back/neck pain is far too strong for anyone to dismiss, which is why it’s important for women to find a solution as soon as possible.

Reduction Mammoplasty Surgery

One effective solution to issues caused by large breasts is reduction mammoplasty. This procedure, also known as breast reduction surgery, involves the removal of some skin and tissue from the individual’s breasts, leaving her with an all-new pair that is smaller and shapelier than before. The surgeon will make sure that the incisions are discreetly made and designed in a way to give your breasts a much more youthful appearance.

During reduction mammoplasty, the patient’s areolae and nipples can also be repositioned, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The procedure requires the use of general anesthesia and involves a suitable recovery time that depends on the patient and the surgery.

Why Should You Consider Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery can help alleviate neck and back problems almost instantly. It can also help restore good posture and make it much easier for you to perform everyday tasks. This procedure can also give your self-esteem a boost, since it improves your figure and makes you look more youthful.
