When people think of cosmetic surgery on the breasts, they often envision an enhancement with implants. In society, larger breasts are often favored and seen as a symbol of beauty. However, breast reduction surgery is a procedure that can provide a large group of primarily women with tremendous relief from associated health problems, along with improving one’s self-confidence and overall satisfaction with their appearance. Each person’s reasons to consider breast reduction can be personal and unique.
Extremely large breasts may often be associated with a number of health complaints. Some of the more common include neck pain, headache or migraine, finger numbness and back ache. Some women may experience shortness of breath and varying levels of difficulty in performing everyday tasks, such as sitting at a desk, carrying their children and intense exercise.
Reasons for Symptoms
There are a multitude of suspected reasons for the painful symptoms people with ample breast size may experience. A lot of women don’t even realize that their problems could be related to their large chests and may live with the discomfort for an exceedingly long time.
An overarching cause of many painful symptoms associated with large breasts may be due to the effect that carrying so much weight in the chest area can have on the core structure of a woman’s anatomy. The way a woman with heavy breasts carries herself in order to compensate for the added weight can sometimes be burdensome to the body. She may roll her shoulders forward, which can lead to compressed nerves that may cause pain. Numbness and nerve tingling in the arms may arise in relation to pressure placed on the nerves behind the collar bone. Over time, the pain could also worsen.
How Breast Reduction Can Help
Breast reduction surgery is a safe procedure that involves removing tissue and excess skin from the breasts. Most patients may return to their everyday activities and to their jobs within a week after surgery.
