Why Women Decide to Get a Breast Reduction

When bigger isn’t better, turn to breast reduction. This procedure can reduce the size and weight of the breasts by removing excess skin, fat, and breast tissue.

Breast reduction changes lives by helping women to feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies and their appearances. The journey to breast reduction is a personal one, but the reasons women choose this procedure are often the same.

Why do women choose breast reduction?

Back and Shoulder Pain

Bigger breasts are heavier breasts. Imagine walking around carrying two heavy weights, all day, every day. If you have large breasts, this is essentially what you’re doing. This excess weight can pull on the back and shoulders, resulting in pain, discomfort, and even permanent damage.

Reducing the size of the breasts can reduce the strain on the back, neck, and shoulders. Many women find this reduction alleviates pain and improves posture. 

Difficulty Finding Clothing that Fits

Since clothing comes in standard sizes, breasts that aren’t standard size can make it difficult to find clothing that fits well. Tops that fit the breasts are often too large to comfortably fit the rest of the body. Some clothing may look tighter or more provocative than intended. Many clothing styles, including those that require going braless, are unwearable for women with a very large breast size.

Breast reduction surgery can open the fashion possibilities. Dr. Stanton’s patients love being able to wear styles that they never could before surgery.

Exercise and Physical Activity Are Difficult

Are your breasts keeping you from the activities you love? Some physical activities are challenging, if not impossible, with large breasts. After you’ve recovered from surgery, breast reduction can improve mobility and make it easier to exercise. Some patients find that it is easier to maintain their weight after surgery due to an increase in physical activity.

If you would love to run, jump, and climb but find that your breasts are always in the way, breast reduction surgery may benefit you.

Breasts Are Hogging the Attention

Many women with large breasts feel unseen. People tend to pay more attention to their breasts than to anything else. Many women struggle with constant inappropriate comments and awkward situations due to their breast size.

Breast reduction surgery can turn the attention from your breasts to you.

Too Much Sagging

All breasts sag, but with large breasts, this sagging is often more noticeable. Pregnancy or weight loss can be especially problematic for women with large breasts. While a breast lift can restore a more youthful breast shape, large heavy breasts will often sag again, and quickly.

A breast reduction can lift and shape the breasts while reducing their size.
