What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?

March 23, 2020

Are you struggling with excessively large or heavy breasts? If so, you’re not alone. Many women face this issue and long for a solution. That’s where a breast reduction comes in. A breast reduction can reduce the weight of the  breasts and allow for a “lift.” Let’s take a closer look at several of the many benefits of a breast reduction so you can make an informed decision about this procedure.


Ability to Participate in Sports and Exercise

If you have excessively large breasts, you may avoid participating in sports, exercise and other activities because of discomfort. Breast reduction surgery can eliminate this problem and allow you to enjoy these activities once again.

More Clothing Options

Finding clothes that fit you well can be a daunting task if your breasts are large. Many clothing items may be too small for your chest. After breast reduction surgery, you’ll find it much easier to shop for clothing. You’ll have far more options and will be able to wear items that you may not have been able to in the past.

Fewer Stretch Marks

You are more likely to develop stretch marks if your breasts are heavy and out of proportion. Although these marks are like scars and are difficult to treat, they will be less likely to worsen if the weight of the breasts is reduced from a breast reduction.

Less Back Pain

Chronic pain in the back, neck or shoulders is a common symptom of heavy breasts. A breast reduction will reduce the weight in your breasts and provide pain relief as a result. This can give you the freedom to enjoy your life with improved posture and little or no pain. You’ll love getting up every morning with the energy and ability to tackle anything that comes your way!

Improved Respiratory Function

Another common symptom of excessively large breasts is shortness of breath. A breast reduction can improve respiratory function. It’s a particularly smart procedure if you have asthma. 

Depending on the reasoning for your breast reduction, your insurance company may cover it. If not, we’ll design a payment plan that comfortably aligns with your budget and lifestyle.

The reduction in my breast area is amazing. It was a quick procedure that resulted with lighter breast and no scars. I am now portioned to my size. It’s great to wear the same size on top as bottom.
