Health Benefits of a Breast Reduction

January 20, 2010

You’ve heard it before: the grass is always greener on the other side. This may seem like the case when it comes to breast size. Women with smaller breasts often want larger breasts and women with larger breasts often want to downsize. But there’s an important differentiation here, one that often goes unnoticed – while some women may want larger breasts for aesthetic reasons, women with overly large breasts often consider breast reduction for health benefits as well. This added dimension makes breast reduction a very special, and very beneficial, procedure.

Healthy Outside

Large breasts can put a strain on the neck, back and shoulders. This can cause chronic pain, chaffing, and painful grooves on the shoulders from bra straps. It can also cause serious breathing problems. With surgery, women find it easier to exercise and participate in other activities. Even posture can improve as a result. Pain is reduced and breathing is easier.

Healthy Inside

Large breasts can also be emotionally detrimental, often drawing unwanted and unsolicited attention from others. Breast reduction helps free these women from the emotional strain of large breasts and can help them feel confident without hiding their figure underneath baggy clothing. Breast reduction can also be performed along with a breast lift procedure to create perkier, more youthful-looking breasts.

My Los Angeles breast reduction patients are among my most satisfied patients. The benefits of breast reduction surgery are dramatic, almost immediate, and long-lasting.
