breast reductionI’ve spent a fair amount of time on this blog talking about breast augmentation—but what about breast reduction?

Breast enhancement may be a more popular procedure, but for some women, breast reduction surgery can be life-changing.

Large breasts can create both physical and emotional challenges for women. On the physical side, back, shoulder, and neck pain—not to mention discomfort during certain types of exercise—are typical problems suffered by women with breasts too large for their frame. In some cases, large breasts can even cause chronic skin irritation and infections in the folds beneath the breasts. Meanwhile, on the emotional side, many women with large busts find that their figure draws attention that makes them feel uncomfortable and self-conscious.

Breast reduction surgery can offer patients many benefits: clothes often fit better once your breasts are made more proportional to the rest of your body; reduced breast size alleviates the pressure on your back, shoulders, and neck, making you feel more physically comfortable; a less conspicuous bustline can make you feel more confident and less self-conscious about how you look; and according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), breast reduction surgery boasts one of the highest plastic surgery patient satisfaction rates around, so you’ll likely be happy with the results.

Don’t let the size of your breasts interfere with the quality of your life. Consider breast reduction surgery: a few months from now, you could have the smaller, firmer, more beautiful breasts you’ve been dreaming of.
