Why Should I Choose Breast Reduction?
Plastic surgery and skin care to help you look and feel your best
Although it seems like most beauty standards prefer larger breasts, there are many women who can benefit from a breast reduction procedure. This lesser-known plastic surgery procedure can have many medical benefits for women with overly-large breasts, so here are some reasons to begin planning your consultation with Dr. Angelchik.
Large breasts can put a considerable amount of strain on the upper body, no matter how much support is in place. Many women with large breasts regularly experience pain and discomfort in the back, shoulders, or neck because of their breasts, which can lead to many serious medical problems later in life. If you have breasts that interfere with your posture and well-being, it’s important to address them as soon as possible.
One common experience by women with large breasts is skin irritation or chafing from so much skin-on-skin contact within the breast crease. Bras can also aggravate this because many women find them to be a necessity in providing support. If you experience rashes or irritation from sweat and chafing, a breast reduction procedure can provide relief.
A common demographic for breast reduction procedures is athletes who have breasts that interfere with their ability to be active. This is true for many other women, too, who feel they are unable to achieve their weight loss goals because their large breasts feel uncomfortable while trying to be active, especially while running or jogging. They can even prevent certain activities or positions altogether.
Although there are many physical reasons that women opt for breast reduction, there can also be social and personal reasons. Many women with large breasts feel uncomfortable during social or intimate situations where it can feel like people are staring. Many also experience off-hand jokes at the expense of their breasts. It’s important to know that breast reduction comes with one of the highest rates of patient satisfaction out of any plastic surgery procedure, so it’s important to consider your own goals and wishes rather than anyone else’s.
Breast reduction can be a life-changing procedure for women that live with overly-large breasts, so it’s important to discuss your options with your plastic surgeon as soon as possible.
