Having larger breasts can have many negative impacts on a woman’s life, both physical and mental. A breast reduction can be a safe and effective way method of reducing or even eliminating these problems. Are you unsure if your breasts are negatively impacting your quality of life? Check out this list of five reasons they may be.
Larger breasts can be quite heavy and this can make it harder for you to breathe. This is particularly true while sleeping. When sleeping on your back, the breasts may press down on the lungs and hinder any normal respiration.
Pain in the Neck, Shoulders, or Back
Carrying around the weight of large breasts can put unnecessary strain on the neck, shoulders, and back. It can also cause posture changes, which can lead to spinal problems down the road. Even if your breasts did not cause pain before, it can start to happen as you age. When combined with the weight of large breasts, the nerves can be compressed, resulting in pain.
Both sweat and dirt can easily get trapped underneath the breasts. This can happen to any woman but is especially common in those with larger breasts. This can lead to a rash which can be itchy or downright painful. Infections can occur as well. Breast reduction can give you long-term relief from this problem.
Difficulty Finding Clothes That Fit
For many women with larger breasts, finding clothing that fits well is nearly impossible. Most clothes manufacturers design their clothes for average-sized women. While some companies tailor make their clothes for women with larger breasts, they may not be as easy to find.
Many women do not enjoy the attention their larger breasts bring them. Some women feel they are not taken as seriously as they should be due to the size of their breasts. A breast reduction can help reduce self-consciousness, leading to more confidence.
