Top Reasons Why Women Get Breast Reductions

Back to Blog

Do you feel that your breasts are disproportionately large compared to your body? Or perhaps your breasts are preventing you from taking part in certain activities. If this sounds like you, you may be able to benefit from a breast reduction. This procedure removes excess tissue and skin from the breasts and reshapes the breast to create a smaller more youthful breast.. Read on to learn more about why many patients may choose to undergo a breast reduction procedure.

Difficulty Exercising

Are your breasts making it hard to enjoy your workout? For example, large breasts can make jogging uncomfortable, and can even hinder arm movement. Even with supportive sports bras, you may still have trouble getting the most out of your time in the gym. A breast reduction can make movement easier and more comfortable.

It’s Taking a Toll on Your Self-Confidence

In cases where your large breasts make you feel uncomfortable in your own body, it can take a toll on your self-esteem. A negative body image can have an unfavorable effect on many aspects of your life. If you are bothered by your breasts and believe that a breast reduction will improve your self-confidence, it may be a good personal choice.

Difficulty Fitting Into Clothing

Are you having a difficult time fitting into clothes? Many women with large breasts face the challenge of finding clothes that fit their breasts. If you are tired of not being able to wear the clothes you want to because of your upper body shape, a breast reduction may be the answer. This procedure can help to achieve an overall more proportionate body shape so that clothing fits better and is more comfortable.

You’re Experiencing Pain

For women with oversized or large breasts, the weight of excess tissue on your chest can cause back discomfort and shoulder pain. Many women complain of having marks on their shoulders due to their bra straps digging into their skin. If this sounds familiar, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.

Asymmetrical Breasts

While it is perfectly normal to have breasts that are not completely symmetrical, some women have one breast that is noticeably larger than the other. This can make finding a comfortable bra difficult, as well as finding clothing that fits properly. In these cases, a breast reduction can be performed on the larger breast to even out the breasts for a more natural look.
